Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia lashed out at CNN over its report of comments from her Facebook page that called for the execution of Democratic politicians before she was elected.
The posts from 2018 and 2019 include a sign of approval for a comment that called for the execution of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
“A bullet to the head would be quicker” read the comment. CNN shows a screenshot of the “like” by Greene’s account.
In another post, the Greene account responds to a person asking when Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama will be hanged over the Iran Deal.
“Now do we get to hang them ?? Meaning H & O ???,” asked the commenter.
“Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off,” responded Greene’s account.
In a response to the report, Greene released a statement on her Twitter account claiming that other people were authorized to use her account during that time.
“Fake News CNN is writing yet another hit piece on me focused on my time before running for political office. I will never back down to the enemy of the American people and neither should you,” tweeted Greene.
“Over the years, I’ve had teams of people manage my pages. My posts have been liked. Many posts have been shared. Some did not represent my views,” Greene said in the statement posted to Twitter.
“Especially the ones that CNN is about to spread across the internet. They are taking old Facebook posts from random users to try to cancel me and silence my voice,” she added.
“CNN hasn’t once tried to cancel a Democrat. Even those who called for violence while in office. Here’s the truth, the Democrats and their spokesmen in the Fake News Media will stop at nothing to defeat conservative Republicans,” Greene continued.
Greene, who has been in Congress for only a few weeks, has already faced calls for her resignation after a separate report documented a post from her Facebook account that called the Parkland massacre of 17 people a “false flag” operation.
