Marjorie Taylor Greene in January 6 Capitol Riot


On Civil Rights: Insurrection defendants are political prisoners of war

Greene described inmates being held at a Washington DC jail in connection with the January 6 Capitol riots as "political prisoners of war." The tweet follows her criticism of the conditions faced by those being charged over the insurrection at the US Capitol.

Last week, she said she had visited what she described as the "patriot wing" of the jail, tweeting that inmates had "virtually no medical care, very poor food quality, and being put through re-education," without giving further details. Greene wrote: "No one has argued in defense of the Capitol riot, and I've always openly said I was very upset by it, but after seeing these men myself in the DC Jail, I can attest this abuse is true."

"J6 defendants are political prisoners of war," she added. As well as her claims of prisoner abuse, Greene has defended those involved in the riot. Last month, she said that Jan. 6 "was just a riot. And if you think about what our Declaration of Independence says, it says to overthrow tyrants."
