On Sunday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene expressed her disappointment over the public disclosure of a heated House floor dispute with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), suggesting that Boebert was responsible for leaking the incident to the press.
Greene acknowledged that she had referred to her fellow House Freedom Caucus member as a “little b***h” during their confrontation, which arose due to both of them introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden.
“Well, you know, I find it unfortunate that Lauren Boebert leaked that conversation that we had to the press,” Greene said on Fox News’s MediaBuzz with Howard Kurtz. “But once she leaked it out, I had to confirm that that’s, in fact, what I said.”
The Daily Beast was the initial source to report on the details of the confrontation, relying on accounts from two witnesses and a third individual familiar with the matter. Although Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene confirmed the story to reporters, there is no concrete evidence to suggest that Rep. Lauren Boebert was the source of the initial report.
According to Greene, the focal point of concern was Boebert’s failure to co-sponsor her endeavor to impeach President Biden.
“I had asked her to co-sponsor my articles of impeachment against Joe Biden on the border, and she never responded and apparently refused to do so,” Greene said.
“Then, when she introduced her own and forced them to the floor with a privilege resolution without even having the courage to talk to any other Republican in our conference before doing so, except Speaker McCarthy and apparently a few others, yeah, we had a tense conversation when she confronted me about things I had said about it.”
