Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia once again slammed the Biden administration for its aggressive actions toward the protesters engaged in the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol while giving a pass to leftist demonstrators.
The latest action came on Wednesday when FBI agents reportedly used tanks to hunt down an alleged J6 rioter named Gregory Yetman from Helmetta, New Jersey.
Collin Rugg, of the conservative website Trending Politics, posted a local news broadcast of the FBI’s manhunt on X (formerly Twitter). The footage showed agents outfitted in military-style uniforms and wielding automatic weapons in the search of Yetman’s property.
Yetman’s alleged crime, according to Rugg: He fired pepper spray at U.S. Capitol Police during the J6 melee.
Rugg noted that the FBI stormed Yetman’s property with an arrest warrant after the leftist USA Today published a story about J6 protestors who were videotaped while at the Capitol that day but who had not yet been charged or arrested.
According to Rugg, Helmetta Mayor Christopher Slavicek said the FBI’s tactics unnerved his community.
“A situation like this of course brings heightened anxiety — it’s not normal to see FBI agents and vehicles and tanks in your community,” Slavicek said. “You never think something like this will happen in your own backyard.”
On Thursday, Greene commented on Rugg’s post.
“FBI manhunt and tanks for a guy who used pepper spray at police on Jan 6? They don’t do this for Antifa/BLM rioters or Ceasefire Now Pro-Hamas/terrorists insurrectionists or 1.8 million unknown illegal gotaways that came across our border or Epstein’s client list,” she said. “Only J6’ers.”
In a second post on Thursday, Greene added, “The left says, ‘weapons of war don’t belong on our streets.’ The government rolls out a tank for a J6’er that sprayed pepper spray at Cap police almost 3 years ago. Do you get it yet?”
Greene has repeatedly criticized the Justice Department’s approach to hunting down the J6 protesters and their treatment in jail one they’ve been arrested.
In March, for example, she toured the jail in Washington, D.C., holding many of the accused rioters. She referred to them as “political prisoners.”
In May, Greene filed articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Her motive was the release of Special Counsel John Durham’s report on the FBI’s abuses during its probe into former President Donald Trump and the alleged Russian collusion investigation findings.
But her comments also could apply to the agency’s treatment of J6 protesters.
“Under his watch,” she said of Wray, “the FBI has intimidated, harassed, & entrapped Americans who have been deemed enemies of the Biden regime. Wray has turned the FBI into [President] Joe Biden and [Attorney General] Merrick Garland’s personal police force. Christopher Wray needs to be impeached.”
