The lawyers representing the challengers to Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s candidacy want to introduce new evidence they say undermines Greene’s testimony in an Atlanta courtroom hearing last month.
Recently revealed text messages between Greene and then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows show that Greene had brought up the subject of Donald Trump potentially enacting Martial Law to keep himself in office, although she spelled it ‘Marshall Law’. When asked on the stand if she had ever discussed martial law with Trump, anyone on his staff, or anyone else, Greene replied that she “did not recall.”
In a message first published by CNN, Greene’s text to Meadows reads: “In our private chat with only Members, several are saying the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to call for Marshall law (sic). I don’t know on those things. I just wanted you to tell him. They stole this election. We all know. They will destroy our country next. Please tell him to declassify as much as possible so we can go after Biden and anyone else!”

In a document filed last week with the Georgia Office of State Administrative Hearings, the attorneys argue that the text cast doubt on Greene’s claims she did not remember discussing martial law. “Second, the text sheds light on the meaning of her pre-January 6 statements,” the attorneys write. “Eleven days after the failed insurrection, Greene was still fighting against the peaceful transfer of power by advocating extra-legal means. This text, like her statements on January 5, shows the lengths to which she was willing to go to help Mr. Trump remain in power.”

Greene also tried the “I don’t remember that” when recently asked by a reporter about her infamous “Jewish space lasers” post on Facebook, which she was then shown. Watch that interaction below.
