REPUBLICANS have branded QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene a Republican In Name Only (RINO) as Democrats move to oust her from Congress.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger went after Greene in a tweet after CNN revealed she had indicated her support of the execution of prominent Democrats in Facebook posts in 2018 and 2019.
Sharing the CNN article to Twitter, Kinzinger said: "She is not a Republican.
"There are so many who claim the title of Republican and have nothing in common with our core values.
"They are RINOS. She is a RINO."
On Tuesday CNN reported that Greene had liked a post that said "a bullet to the head would be quicker" to remove Nancy Pelosi, the House Speaker.
In other posts, the Georgia Republican, like comments about executing FBI agents who, according to her, were part of the "deep start" who were working against Trump.
In one post in 2018, Greene wrote about the Iran Deal, one of Barack Obama's key foreign policy achievements.
One commenter asked Greene, "Now do we get to hang them ?? Meaning H & O ???," which referred to Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Greene replied, "Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient.
"This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off."
After CNN reached out to Greene she posted a statement to her Twitter account in which she didn't deny she had liked the posts and replied to the comments but claimed that many people run her social media account.
"Over the years, I've had teams of people manage my pages. Many posts have been liked.
"Many posts have been shared. Some did not represent my views.
"Especially the ones that CNN is about to spread across the internet."
'THIS WOMAN SHOULD BE ON A WATCH LIST'
After CNN released their initial report, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy said he would speak to Greene.
"These comments are deeply disturbing and Leader McCarthy plans to have a conversation with the Congressman about them," Mark Bednar, a spokesman for McCarthy, told Axios.
Hilary Clinton said on Wednesday that Greene should be "on a watch list" and "not in Congress".
The former First Lady tweeted: "This woman should be on a watch list. Not in Congress."
Meanwhile, the Democrat Rep Jimmy Gomez called on Greene to be expelled from the House for her role in the Capitol insurrection.
At the time Greene tweeted: "I fully condemn ALL violence.
"The Antifa/BLM terrorism funded on ActBlue rests with Democrat accomplices like @CoriBush @Ilhan @KamalaHarris @AOC @timkaine & many more…Those who stoke insurrection & spread conspiracies have blood on their hands. They must be expelled."
'THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY'
On Wednesday the congressman for California announced that he will put forward a House resolution to call for the expulsion of Greene.
"Such advocacy for extremism and sedition not only demands her immediate expulsion from Congress, but it also merits strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues. including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell," Gomez said.
On Wednesday Greene claimed that President Biden is "unfit to hold office" and should be impeached over the Hunter scandal.
The QAnon representative said Biden has demonstrated a "pattern of abuse of power" and the president is a "threat to national security".
Former President Trump made Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China and Ukraine a line of attack against Biden during the 2020 election campaign – but Hunter has denied any wrongdoing.
Green has become known as the "QAnon Rep" given her ties to the unfounded conspiracy theory that former president Trump was taking on so-called "deep state" actors.
The theory centers around an anonymous source, Q, who is trying to tell the world a secret – or multiple secrets – via online forums.
Among these claims are unfounded allegations that Donald Trump is waging a secret battle against an alleged pedophile ring populated by the world's elite.
Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have been working to remove tens of thousands of QAnon-linked pages from spreading misinformation online.
Recently, Greene filed impeachment articles on President Joe Biden on his first full day in office.
And video from March 2019 showing Marjorie Taylor Greene confront David Hogg, who survived the Parkland school shooting in 2018, also resurfaced this week.
The footage appears to show her calling Hogg "a coward" over his stance on gun rights.
