Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has slammed those blaming her for the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband and shared past death threats from callers to her office.
An assailant broke into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul’s home in San Francisco early Friday morning, violently attacking him, according to a spokesperson for Pelosi.
“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi. The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation. Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement.
The attacker, who San Francisco Police Chief William Scott identified as David DePape, 42, has been charged with crimes including attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, and elder abuse.
The attack on Paul Pelosi prompted Greene’s past comments about Nancy Pelosi to resurface, where she said the speaker was guilty of treason and that “it’s a crime punishable by death.”
But Greene shot back on Saturday, taking to Twitter.
“Since the shadow bans seem to be lifted on my Twitter account, retweeting for those ridiculously blaming me for what happened to Paul Pelosi,” she wrote on Twitter on Saturday, alongside a video she shared in December about death threats to members of Congress.
In one of the calls in the video below, a caller says, over and over to Green, “You should be taken out and shot.”
Greene said it is “completely wrong for any member of Congress to receive death threats.” She added that the media had “defamed” and “smeared” her, leading to the death threats that can be heard on the video.
