Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) raised her eyebrows with a claim she made during a Thursday night TV interview.
Greene said he read a document inside a SCIF — a sensitive compartmented information center — related to corruption allegations Republicans have made against President Joe Biden, but have yet to provide evidence. .
Then she described this document while talking to Laura Ingraham on Fox News:
Greene said the document was “unclassified,” but a SCIF is generally only used for very sensitive information. Lawmakers generally must check all electronic devices before entering and cannot take notes inside.
And generally, the information revealed in the SCIF cannot be repeated outside of it.
But Greene — a conspiracy theorist and close ally of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) who called for a “national divorce” and spoke at a white nationalist event last year — said said she copied as much as she could once she left SCIF.
“It’s a document that all of America should be able to see, but the FBI is blocking us and they would only let us see it in a SCIF,” she said. “Well, what I did after reading the document was I took notes when I walked out and came up to the table.”
She held up those notes in front of the camera.
“I wrote down everything I had just read so I could go out and tell Americans what I was reading,” she said.
His detractors were left baffled by what appeared to be a confession.
