Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene spoke from the House floor as the chamber prepares to vote on a resolution to strip her from her committee assignments due to extreme comments she made before winning her seat.
"These were words of the past, and these things do not represent me, they do not represent my district, and they do not represent my values," Greene said.
Greene went on to say that she believes shootings are "absolutely real" and that 9/11 "absolutely happened." She did not apologize for her past comments.
Some context: Outrage over Greene, who has in the past embraced the dangerous and debunked QAnon conspiracy theory, grew more intense in Congress in the wake of a report from CNN's KFile that she repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians in 2018 and 2019 before being elected to Congress.
The Georgia Republican has also faced backlash over recently resurfaced comments about the 2018 Parkland school shooting.
