(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Monday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) hit back after New York Mayor Eric Adams (D) in a statement called for Greene to be on her “best behavior” during protests against former President Trump’s arraignment.
Greene took to Twitter to respond to Adams’ comments stating that “Delusional @NYCMayor is trying to intimidate, threaten, and stop me from using my 1st amendment rights.” She proceeded to claim that the case brought forth against Trump, who is the front runner for the 2024 GOP primary is a clear indication that the Democrats were choosing to “unconstitutional weaponization of our justice system.”
Following the announcement that Trump would be indicted last week, many Republicans expressed their support for Trump and their criticisms about the case which relates to the hush money payment of $130,000 made to adult film star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence over their alleged affair. Greene has been one of the most vocal critics of the case and has repeatedly echoed Trump’s allegations that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s investigation was politically motivated.
The Georgia Republican in her tweet also argued that Adams should not be concerned with her, but rather he “should be more concerned about NY citizens and taxpayers being murdered, raped, robbed, and carjacked.” She then added that perhaps she is the one that needed to be more concerned about NYC weaponizing the law against her.
