[WATCH] ‘This is Insanity’: Former US Attorney From GA Apologizes on Behalf of Entire State For Greene

Michael Moore, the former U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia (not the filmmaker) appeared on CNN with Don Lemon and Margaret Hoover to discuss Friday’s administrative hearing for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Moore said he believed Greene won’t suffer any real consequences from the hearing, despite several Twitter users calling her out for perjury so often, “#PerjuryTaylorGreene” was still trending on Saturday.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – APRIL 22: U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene speaks during a court trial on April 22, 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia. U.S. Rep. Greene is appearing at the hearing Friday in Atlanta in a challenge filed by voters who say she shouldn’t be allowed to seek reelection because she helped facilitate the attack on the Capitol that disrupted the certification of Joe Biden’s presidential victory.

Greene testified under oath for nearly four hours as a witness during the hearing, as the challengers from Free Speech for People, an election and campaign finance reform organization, questioned her on behalf of a group of Georgia voters who alleged that Greene facilitated the attack on the Capitol. Greene often responded “I don’t remember” or “I don’t recall” to questions from the challengers, but displayed perfect total recall when questioned by her own lawyer, James Bopp, Jr. of Citizens United. Bopp objected to nearly every question from FSP’s Andrew Celli, which made the flow of the proceedings occasionally disjointed and confusing.

As Twitter users followed along live, Greene’s testimony dipped into a gray area most called flat-out lying under oath.

The CNN panel pulled no punches when discussing Greene’s testimony. “This is no longer about left and right this is like, kooky vs. insanity,” said Lemon. “What is happening?”

“This is insanity,” Hoover said, agreeing with Lemon. She also confessed that while she is a Republican, she’s still not sure she has the ability to explain Greene, “a woman who puts her arms around white nationalist, propagating antisemitic conspiracy theories, all of the energy and all the resource you put into a lawsuit like that?” Hoover said. “Forget about it. Beat her fair and square at the ballot.”

But Moore really got the best line of the segment when he issued an apology to America on behalf of the Peach State. “I apologize for being from Georgia and having Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia to those who are listening,” said Moore, addressing Hoover’s comments.
