Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) expressed frustration with her party’s handling of budget negotiations in an interview with Raw Story on Thursday. Greene said she is “unhappy with our entire GOP conference” over the continuing resolutions (CRs) being used to fund the government, calling it a “failure” after the party’s previous opposition to CRs.

Greene also commented on former President Donald Trump’s immunity case heading to the Supreme Court, saying she thinks “the Supreme Court is the place for this to be” given perceived bias in lower courts. If the Supreme Court allows presidential immunity to protect Trump, Greene believes “all the cases are gone.” She argued Democrats should also support presidential immunity, questioning the political motivations behind opposing it.

Additionally, Greene vowed to continue GOP efforts to impeach President Biden despite lack of evidence and setbacks like a key witness being charged with lying. She looks forward to public hearings with Hunter Biden.

On Ukraine aid, Greene asserted Congress’ job is to represent constituents, not “fund the CIA’s war against Ukraine.” She questioned why issues like border security are being ignored in order to pass bills providing aid that she believes much of the public opposes.

Greene accused the Senate of foolishness for bringing funding bills to the floor that lack public support. She reiterated her frustration with the multiple CRs and minibuses after the party previously opposed such measures.
