EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., is introducing a resolution on Tuesday to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., accusing the progressive ‘Squad’ member of ‘antisemitic activity’ and ‘sympathizing with terrorist organizations.’
‘The [Democratic] Party has done nothing to hold her accountable. They’ve done nothing to rein her in, and no one else here has done it. And so I thought it was right to list examples of – this isn’t just new. This isn’t a one-off thing. This is exactly who she is,’ Greene told Fox News Digital.
Greene accused Tlaib of leading a pro-Palestinian protest on Capitol Hill last week. Hundreds of demonstrators called for a cease-fire after the terror group Hamas staged an unprecedented, bloody incursion from the Palestinian exclave of Gaza into southern Israel on Oct. 7, killing hundreds of civilians and prompting an ongoing response from the Israeli military.

Tlaib spoke at the protest, during which activists took over much of the ground floor at the Cannon House Office Building.
In those comments, she blamed Israel for bombing a hospital in Gaza – remarks she did not retract after multiple intelligence agencies said that existing proof indicated the blast came from a misfired Hamas rocket.
Greene called the protest ‘an insurrection’ in her resolution.
In its text, Greene also referenced Tlaib’s endorsement of a slogan used by Hamas and the Palestine Liberation Organization. She also recalled Tlaib’s past comments in which she called Israel ‘an apartheid government.’
Tlaib is the only Palestinian-American member of Congress.

Greene said when asked about GOP feedback to her push to censure Tlaib, ‘I think we will have every single Republican vote with us for this central resolution.’
She said of the left, ‘It would be shocking to me if they didn’t vote for it.’
Greene also called for Tlaib’s support of last week’s cease-fire protest to be investigated by multiple House panels.
‘It should [have] a House Ethics investigation. [The House Administration Committee] should be investigating it. I think the Department of Justice, FBI should be investigating, even possibly the CIA,’ Greene said.
Tlaib’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday evening.
