Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) warned President Joe Biden, claiming that he could potentially face jail time if a Republican wins the 2024 presidential election. Greene agreed with comments made by Stephen Miller, a former speechwriter for President Donald Trump, on X regarding a recent court ruling on presidential immunity.

Miller had commented on a post by Andrew Weissmann, a former federal prosecutor, about a ruling from Judge Tanya Chutkan. In her decision, Chutkan stated there was no legal basis that presidents could not be charged after leaving office. Her ruling rejected arguments from Trump seeking to dismiss criminal charges over his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.

Weissmann shared a quote from Chutkan’s decision in his post, stating: “‘by definition, the president’s duty to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed’ does not grant special latitude to violate them.’” Miller argued in his response that under this precedent, “a future DOJ can throw Biden and his many conspirators (e.g. Mayorkas) in jail for violating every immigration law on the books and for a conspiracy to commit human trafficking, drug trafficking, and drug smuggling — to name just a few of the numerous felony charges.”

Greene appeared to agree with Miller’s comments, replying “Yep. They should be careful [of] the precedents they set.”

Greene has long denied the validity of Biden’s 2020 election victory and claimed the DOJ is unfairly targeting Trump and his supporters.
