Tuesday by claiming that President Joe Biden and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) planned to “assassinate” former President Donald Trump. This incendiary accusation from the MAGA lawmaker also included a claim that she had attempted to warn Trump about these alleged threats.

In response to Greene’s assertion, retired FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi weighed in, emphasizing the FBI’s strict protocols. He noted, “Every FBI operations order contains a reminder of FBI deadly force policy,” highlighting the agency’s adherence to established procedures regarding the use of force.

The Dispatch Editor-In-Chief Jonah Goldberg also responded to Greene’s claim with strong criticism. He remarked, “This is wildly irresponsible, even for a professional troll like Marjorie Taylor Greene. FBI knew Trump wasn’t there. It was all coordinated with the Secret Service in advance. This is deeply dangerous bulls—-.” Goldberg’s comments underscore the potential harm in spreading unfounded allegations, particularly those involving national security and law enforcement agencies.

US Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) stirred controversy on “The Biden DOJ and FBI were planning to assassinate Pres Trump and gave the green light,” Greene wrote via X/Twitter. “Does everyone get it yet???!!!! What are Republicans going to do about it? I tried to oust our Speaker who funded Biden’s DOJ AND FBI, but Democrats stopped it.”

The Georgia Republican leader was responding to a Truth Social post from Trump, in which he wrote: “WOW! I just came out of the Biden Witch Hunt Trial in Manhattan, the ‘Icebox,’ and was shown Reports that Crooked Joe Biden’s DOJ, in their Illegal and UnConstitutional Raid of Mar-a-Lago, AUTHORIZED THE FBI TO USE DEADLY (LETHAL) FORCE. NOW WE KNOW, FOR SURE, THAT JOE BIDEN IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO DEMOCRACY. HE IS MENTALLY UNFIT TO HOLD OFFICE -25TH AMENDMENT!”

Columnist Goldie Taylor also reacted to Greene’s accusations with a direct and blunt reply, stating, “Something is really wrong with you.” This reaction reflects the frustration and disbelief that many feel regarding such serious and baseless claims.

Greene’s statement adds to her history of making controversial and provocative remarks, which often draw both condemnation and support from various political figures and the public. Her recent claim about an assassination plot against Trump is seen by many as another attempt to galvanize her base by playing into fears and conspiracy theories.

The implications of Greene’s statements are significant, as they not only target high-profile political figures but also question the integrity and actions of federal agencies like the FBI. Such allegations can contribute to public distrust in these institutions, which is particularly concerning given the already polarized political climate.

In the broader context, these kinds of claims have the potential to incite fear and division among the public. They can also distract from substantive political discourse and the pressing issues that require attention from lawmakers and citizens alike. As the political landscape continues to be shaped by such rhetoric, the need for responsible and fact-based dialogue becomes ever more critical.

As reactions to Greene’s claims continue to unfold, it remains to be seen how this will impact her standing within her party and among her constituents. What is clear, however, is that the discourse around these issues needs to be grounded in reality and responsibility, especially when it involves the safety and trust of the public.
