Text messages sent and received by former Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows confirm that Rep. Greene discussed with Meadows the idea of Trump imposing martial law to block the peaceful transfer of power.  On April 22, testifying under oath, Greene claimed she could not remember whether she had done so. 

Marjorie Taylor Greene testified under oath that she could not remember telling Trump or his chief of staff to declare martial law to try to keep Trump in power, but her own texts reveal that she did exactly that. Greene’s dishonesty about her call for martial law helps illustrate why she was not a credible witness in answering questions on whether she facilitated the January 6 insurrection. Anyone who ‘can’t remember’ whether they urged the White House Chief of Staff to talk to the President of the United States about declaring martial law can’t be trusted when they claim they ‘can’t remember’ their own engagement in insurrection.

CNN has published a trove of 2,319 text messages sent and received by Meadows.

The hearing on April 22 was part of a legal challenge filed by Georgia voters alleging that Greene is constitutionally disqualified from public office under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, on the grounds that she helped facilitate the January 6, 2021 insurrection.

The voters are represented by Free Speech For People, a nonpartisan, non-profit legal advocacy organization with constitutional law expertise, which is serving as co-lead counsel in the matter, along with New York-based Emery Celli Brinckerhoff Abady Ward & Maazel LLP. Bryan Sells, an Atlanta-based civil rights lawyer specializing in voting rights and election law, is serving as local counsel.
