Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green complained to former Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis that the press could enter the courtroom during a trial.
A group of five voters from Miss Green County is suing a woman congressman for disqualification from running for office under the 14th Amendment. The group says it has “voluntarily assisted and engaged” in the Capitol uprising, which undermines its ability to hold the Federal Office under the 14th Amendment. The amendment was approved after the Civil War to prevent confederation officers and officials from holding public office in the US.
“What you say and lie is ridiculous,” she said. Allow everything to be viewed live on video Go to any part of the world you want. And you know what it looks like – Democrats and the bad mainstream media, you know, they are constantly lying about me, good, crooked and twisted, and these financially savvy lawyers are cutting off the smallest piece of what they want. It’s about trying to talk about me. “
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. Courtrooms are closed during the trial to protect minors or in some cases protect the privacy of witnesses, judges or victims.
Unfortunately for Ms. Green, a defendant trying to prevent a defendant from disclosing critical information is not a valid reason to close his or her court.
Ms. Green has asked for an order and a restraining order to end the trial. However, Amy Tottenberg, a judge of the United States District Court of Northern Georgia, rejected her request. Judge Green ruled that the case was not a fair one.
The group that prosecuted Ms. Green was represented by a group called the Free Speech. That group launched a similar trial against Republican Congressman Madison County, but a judge barred the case.
If Green is found to have violated the 14th Amendment, her name will be dropped from the ballot box – or if the ballots have been published before – she will be rejected by the electorate and any voters will be cast for her.
