MTG Sweating January 6th Phone Records--What About Boebert?

  • 20 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Reporter Graig Graziosi writes for the UK Independent about one very upset freshman firebreathing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, freely throwing the threats around against telecommunications companies who might be considering cooperation with the Select Committee investigating the violence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th by retaining phone records of a number of Donald Trump dead-ender congresspeople including herself:

Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has threatened telecom companies, claiming they would be “shut down” if they handed over Republicans’ phone data to the January 6 commission being conducted by the US House.

The commission is investigating the circumstances that led to the Capitol riot, and have request the phone records of several Republican lawmakers, including Representatives Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jim Jordan, Madison Cawthorn, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Mo Brooks, Jody Hice, Scott Perry, Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar…

“If these telecommunications companies, if they go along with this, they will be shut down. And that’s a promise,” Ms Greene told Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Random observation made for no particular reason whatsoever.

As usual there’s no legal mechanism by which MTG could follow through on such a grandiose (not to mention anti-free market) threat, but keep in mind that in her campaign commercials from last year’s elections, Greene proposed to solve a variety of problems besetting the nation with the one-size-fits-all prescription of shooting them with a large black rifle.

So the nation’s telecommunications companies, or at least their security departments, can interpret that as needed.

Although Rep. Greene is loudly pushing back against retaining records that could tie members of Congress to culpable figures in the violence on January 6th, Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado has been far less vocal about it even though Boebert is subject to the same request. Boebert certainly isn’t above making absurd threats she couldn’t possibly carry out, but Boebert’s relative silence on this matter while MTG rages invites the question of which of them has more to worry about in those phone records.

One protests too much, the other not enough. But we strongly suspect it’s top of mind for both.

  1. I'm sure there will be plenty of indignant misspelled tweets from western CO's favorite Qongresswoman about how she's being spied on by Democrats and China and Facebook or being oppressed for being a conservative or some typical nonsense.

      1. Apparantly, sane and reasonable conservatives keep saying that about other self identified conservatives. 

        But the so called conservative party nominated and then elected Trump by safe margins. 

        1. Yep, Trump appealed to the baser side of the party. There were good candidates on the Republican side. But then it came down to Trump or Ted Cruz…….  Ugh!

          1. Ttump did nothing more than tear off the bedazzled fig leaf of conservatism that Republicans had been hiding their peckers behind for decades. (He’s too stupid and uncouth to know how a Republican is supposed to dress to play that game.)

            . . . once that came off and their noodley nasty bits were all exposed, they said, “ah, what the hey anyway,” and made a choice to embrace and gleefully and publicly swing all their ugh things.

            . . . “We’s what you all already know we is. Watch now, while we write our names in the snow!”

        2. There's also multiples more of those conservatives, than there are conservatives that CHB believes should have exclusive trademark rights to the name . . .
