Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has reached a new level in her attempt to raise her national profile by calling the Homeland Security Sec. Mayorkas lied during the house trial.
Marjorie Taylor Green’s questions to Mayorkas end abruptly after she calls him a liar, her words are removed, and Goldman explains that the rules prevent her from continuing.

Green put it all together, please put me on the fury of Fox News to say that China is poisoning American children and Mallorca is letting it happen.

Sec Mayorkas denied Green’s claims and called her a liar.
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) asked Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) to take down her words. Rep. Green ruled that calling someone a liar was impugning their character and a violation of House rule, and ordered that her words be stricken from the record.
Democrats then asked that Thompson’s words be removed, which would result in Green not being allowed to speak at the hearing.
Rep. Greene interrupted and tried to ask a personal question point, but Rep. Daniel Goldman (D-NY) told her there was no such thing.
The description of the events at the House Homeland Security hearing sounds like chaos because it is.
Speaker Kevin McCarthy promoted Marjorie Taylor Green to the Homeland Security Committee without knowing or caring about the rules of procedure.
Anyone else might be offended by this behavior, but Greene is only interested in raising her national profile.. Representative Green wants to be Donald Trump’s opponent in 2024And there is no limit to how low you are willing to go.
Greene is an example of what happens when an unimportant house is too much. It turns regulatory responsibility into a partisan political game.
