Former State Department official Marjorie Taylor Greene, who resigned after WikiLeaks leaked her emails, took to the Atlantic to share her take on Sen. John Kennedy’s (R-Louisiana) attack on her integrity.
The back story: Last month, Kennedy told a crowd in Louisiana that the Benghazi committee took “payback” for Clinton’s defeat.
“There was a lot of humiliation there for people in my committee who were turned over like so many Bernie Sanders supporters were taken for a ride by Hillary. All my subpoena power, whatever was used against Cheryl Mills, it was used against Hillary Clinton. Once she was in, that was all. So you’re killing us.”
That prompted Greene to tweet back: “You’ve just witnessed what happens when you attack whistleblowers and hire dirty tricksters. Get ready for more indictments.”
Kennedy responded, asking, “Do I have a subpoena on you? Was I after you? I did not have a single subpoena against you. You have been a relentless whistleblower. As a private citizen, you pushed this administration to bring an end to widespread sexual harassment across the federal government. Most unfortunately, in the eyes of others, you were made the target for political reason. Your allegations against Hillary Clinton were not dismissed, but were taken out of context and used against her and the United States of America. In fairness, you served under two presidents, two Democratic and two Republican ones. Her conduct was not sexual harassment, but then I don’t think it’s politically correct for a public official to use a quote, an unambiguous, common noun like ‘woman,’ to describe a fellow person. Can I respond to that?”
In the end, Greene ended her Twitter fight with Kennedy on good terms. “Tough hearing for you but I’m still praising you for taking the unprecedented step to fire the Comey sexual harassment [sic],” she tweeted.
