WATCH: Marjorie Taylor Greene Is Really Worried About Taking The Witness Stand On Friday

Marjorie Taylor Greene may very well be a one-term Member of Congress, if a legal challenge to her candidacy is successful. However, that’s not necessarily her biggest worry.

Greene’s eligibility to run for office is being challenged based on a clause in the 14th amendment which forbids those who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the United States and its Constitution, after swearing an oath to protect both, from holding office.

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.

Greene has shown open support for the defendants accused of carrying out an attack on the United States, holding press conferences to defend them and call for better conditions (not for prisons across the nation, but for the defendants she and other supporters refer to as the “J6 political prisoners”), and she was among the elected representatives who made open efforts to stall or prevent the election from being confirmed, standing up to contest electoral votes.

However, whether or not she’s kicked off the ballot, she’s very clear on one thing: the real concern is testimony under oath.

“They’re actually putting me on the witness stand on Friday. I am the first Republican Member of Congress that is going to be forced to take the witness stand under oath, and defend myself against a lie and something I never did.”

Though Greene refers to the allegations as “a lie and something I never did,” questioning on Friday, under oath, will likely get into more specifics, and broad denials will be harder to give. The January 6th Committee and the Justice Department will surely be interested in transcripts.
