Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green announced that the confrontations with other lawmakers ( such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) have been blown out of proportion.
Greene last Wednesday confronted Ocasio-Cortez after a congressional hearing, asking her why she supported antifa and Black Lives Matter. On Friday, CNN unearthed a video from February 2019 — before Greene was elected to Congress — that showed her questioning AOC's staff outside their office's locked door.
Later Friday, Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., had a verbal altercation with Greene spokesman Nick Dyer.
Dyer apparently told a masked Swalwell, ''Biden says you can take off your mask.'' Swalwell in response cursed at him and told him not to tell him what to do.
''They don't know what to do with me because I'm not going to back down and be intimidated by their bully tactics,'' Greene said. ''I've done nothing wrong,"
''You had (Mo. Rep.) Cori Bush verbally assaulting me in the tunnel because she walked by me and I had my mask pulled down below my nose. Then you had (Illinois Rep.) Marie Newman across the hallway, whatever, she doesn't believe in gender, you know hanging the transgender flag in this aggressive manner in a tweet," she continued
"And guess what, Marie Newman also shoulder-checked me when we walked by each other. ... I turned to her and said, 'excuse me.' The Capitol policeman was right there, and I said, 'Did you see that,' and he said, 'Yes I did.' She didn't do anything. She just kept on walking," Greene said.
She added, ''We've got (Rep.) Jimmy Gomez from California introducing a resolution to expel me and I've done nothing wrong. The list goes on and on. ... Then the delegate from Guam bringing over 30 National Guardsmen marching down to my office. Thank God I wasn't in there. They're accusing me of being aggressive or they're accusing me and saying my mannerisms are wrong. It's definitely the other way around. They're the ones that are completely out of line.''
