Marjorie Taylor Greene questions the citizenship of George Soros
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, slammed Hungarian-American billionaire and philanthropist George Soros, questioning his citizenship on Sunday in light of possible charges against former President Donald Trump in an investigation conducted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a Democrat, has been investigating a $130,000 refund to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen for a payment made in secret money before the 2016 election. to adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with Trump in 2006, in order to keep it a secret.
Trump, who has denied the affair, strongly criticized the investigation and on Saturday urged his supporters to protest as he anticipated he would be arrested on Tuesday. It would be the first indictment of a former president if Trump is indicted in the case, which could weaken his chances of winning the 2024 presidential election.
The former president recently lashed out at Bragg, who was backed by Soros in his run for district attorney, according to the National Police Association. Prior to his current role, Bragg served as Assistant Attorney General of New York and Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
“No other person has undermined our democracy as much as George Soros. Why [he] still allowed to retain citizenship?” Greene tweeted on Sunday.
Although Greene has previously defended Trump amid reports of his possible indictment by New York prosecutors, she has dismissed his calls for protests to break out in case he is arrested.
“We don’t need to protest the Communist Democrats’ plan to stop President Trump and our government’s political weaponization and election interference,” Greene said. tweeted on Saturday. “These idiots are sealing their own fate in 2024 because the Silent Majority currently has two feelings about the current regime. Fear and anger. That’s the most potent combination at election time. And Democrats are leading that force with their own Actions.”
Meanwhile, Soros and Bragg have faced criticism in Trump’s recent posts on Truth Social, including a rant published Sunday afternoon in which the former president claimed “assault” on democracy.
“Biden wants to pretend he had nothing to do with the Manhattan DA’s assault on democracy when in fact he ‘stuffed’ the DA’s office with people from the injustice department, including including a senior DC DOJ official who actually runs the “Horseface” witch hunt. Bragg is a (Soros) backward racist, who takes his orders from DC I beat them TWICE, doing much better the second times, and despite their campaign of DISINFORMATION, they don’t want to run against ‘TRUMP’ or my BIG RECORD!” Trump wrote.
Meanwhile, an editorial published by the New York Post in January echoed Trump and Greene’s remarks about Soros, saying the billionaire had spent millions to “install left-wing ADs” across the country. The article also listed other reasons why “George Soros is the most dangerous man in America”.
Newsweek contacted Greene’s spokesperson via email for comment.
