Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene says she was swatted during the early hours of Wednesday morning as a result of Democrat activists trying to get her killed.
In an interview with Alex Jones, Rep Greene described how police descended on her home in Rome, Ga., Wednesday morning by a person angry with her recent legislation, who told police someone had been shot inside her home and that there was an active shooter situation.
“I got swatted last night because of the legislation that I introduced, Protect Children’s Innocence Act, and whoever this person is they’re going to hunt him down and find him,” Rep. Greene told Jones.
“They called the 911 center and reported someone had been shot in my home and that there were children in my home and created a scenario that there was still an active shooter in my home.”
Newswars.com reports: Rep. Greene outlined the event in detail to Jones, saying she was glad she opted not to grab her firearm when answering her door.
MTG: It was just after one o’clock in the morning. I was sound asleep in my bed in my home here in Rome, Georgia. Heard a knock on the door, heard a doorbell, heard people outside my house. I could hear them outside my windows. And I got up quickly. I got dressed. I saw a few lights outside, but it wasn’t police lights still. I could just tell there was cars out there where there shouldn’t be. And I actually… before I left my bedroom I picked up my gun as I always do to answer the door.
AJ: Well yeah, you’re a major target.
MTG: Yeah, if you’re gonna come to my house and I don’t know you’re coming I will answer the door with my firearm and that’s what people should do.
But I had this really strange gut feeling Alex that something was wrong so I put my gun down and it’s odd for me to do that. That’s not normal. Went down the hallway, went into my foyer and saw police out on my front porch and they looked extremely serious and very concerned.
Opened the front door and they immediately asked me, ‘Is everything okay, ma’am? Are you okay?’ And of course I was shocked. I didn’t know what I was getting into. I didn’t know if they were bringing me bad news, or [they’ve] come for whatever reason. And I said, ‘Yeah, I was sound asleep. I’m okay. What’s happening?’ And that’s when they informed me about the call that had come in, and I of course said, ‘Please come in my house. Please check my house. Make sure everything’s okay.’ My daughter woke up and she came out. Of course she was scared too. We both were because it’s really terrifying to have police come to your home in the middle of the night with a story like that and to know that you’re being swatted. And the police knew it too. They said, ‘Yeah, you’re being swatted.’
