DCCC Calls for Ethics Investigation into Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Role in Attacks on U.S. Capitol

Rep. Greene must release all communications with close ally who joined violent QAnon mob on January 6

Today, the DCCC called on the House Ethics Committee to launch an investigation into Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA).

Greene has some serious explaining to do after it was revealed that one of her closest allies, Anthony Aguero, was one of the insurrectionists who broke into the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to overthrow American democracy. Greene and Aguero go way back, and have worked closely together for years on right-wing causes. Aguero has even joined Greene at past pro-Trump rallies.

According to CNN: “In many since-deleted videos … Greene repeatedly calls Aguero ‘amazing’ and a ‘friend.’ On social media, Aguero has called Greene ‘one of my closest friends.’”

Rep. Greene has repeatedly downplayed the insurrection, even saying that the attackers were merely “teenagers” who “walked through the Capitol.”  But in newly released footage, Aguero can be seen among the mob in the Capitol rotunda and heard chanting “heave ho” as rioters attempted to break into the Capitol and “our house” among the mob on the East Side of the building.

“Once again, House Republicans’ conspiracy chair Marjorie Taylor Greene is linked to extremist activity, and this time it’s a direct connection to the insurrection that left five Americans dead – including a police officer killed in the line of duty,” said DCCC spokesperson Chris Hayden. “It’s clear that Kevin McCarthy won’t hold Greene accountable, which is why the Ethics Committee must launch an investigation and Rep. Greene must disclose all of her communications with Anthony Aguero before, during, and after the January 6th insurrection so the American people can learn the truth about Greene’s involvement.”
