“There’s a girl on this room whose daughter was murdered on January 6, Ashli Babbitt, and — there’s by no means been a trial,” Greene mentioned. “As a matter of truth, nobody has cared about the person who shot and killed her. And nobody on this Congress has actually addressed that challenge; January sixth committee did not tackle it. And I imagine that there are various individuals who got here into the Capitol on Jan. 6 whose civil rights and liberties are being violated closely.”
The Oversight Committee held its organizational assembly Tuesday, with Greene making her first look on the committee since she was appointed earlier this month.
Within the earlier Congress, Greene had her committee assignments stripped by the Democratic majority.
The Republican majority is now threatening to take away Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Adam Schiff (D-CA) from the Home Intelligence Committee and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the International Affairs Committee.
