Marjorie Taylor Greene Defends Insurrectionists While Refusing to Back January 6 Commission

“The question that comes to mind is this: What about all the riots that happened during the summer of 2020 after the death of George Floyd? What about the damage caused to federal buildings, churches, people’s businesses and innocent people that were killed?
