The Georgia GOP congresswoman and Trump loyalist is reversing course after saying two weeks ago she and other Trump backers should not protest his indictment.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Friday she will travel to New York next week to protest the former president’s indictment
and urged other supporters to join her.
“I’m going to New York on Tuesday. We MUST protest the unconstitutional WITCH HUNT!” Greene tweeted
to her 663,000 followers.
So far, no other GOP lawmakers have said they are planning to join Greene at protests in New York, though security had already begun ramping up in response to Trump's indictment. The New York Police Department ordered every member of the force to report in full uniform
beginning Friday morning, according to a police memo. That includes 36,000 officers and 19,000 civilian employees.
Before delivering a Lincoln Day address in Gettysburg on Thursday night, Greene said in a message sent to reporters that Bragg "made a very dangerous, and in my opinion, illegal mistake" and that Trump would beat the charges.
"I’ve always stood by President Trump and I will stand alongside him in this fight because the truth every single Republican in America needs to understand [is] that they’re not just coming after President Trump. They’re coming after every single one of us," Greene said.
"And right now President Trump is the only one standing in the way and he’s the first one they want to take down."
