At a Capitol press conference, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene alleged that Jan 6 defendants are being treated “worse” than terrorists as they await the pending trial.

“They have been beaten by the guards. They are called white supremacists. They are denied religious services, haircuts, shaving, the ability to trim their fingernails,” she claimed at an event along with Reps. Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, and Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar.

She insisted Jan 6 prisoners were being “mistreated and abused worse than we treat terrorists at Gitmo,” in reference to the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“They are told that they have to denounce President Trump. They are told that their views are the views of cult members Even though these are men that every single night at 9:00 at night, they put their hand over their heart and sing the national anthem voluntarily,” she reported.

Green, who had her committee assignments stripped by the House for some of her prior statements about QAnon conspiracy theories, suggested prisoners were being subjected to Critical Race Theory training. She stated that they were “mocked because of their political beliefs.”

She was visibly irked when a reporter told her he didn’t remember seeing her hold a press conference for the “unusually cruel” treatment of Capitol Police officers. This referenced

the bear spray and weapons rioters used on officers. Greene responded that she has spoken against violence against police.

She also said prisoners were “force-fed gluten food” despite having celiac disease, causing illness and fasting. Last month, on Steve Bannon’s podcast, she said an inmate wasn’t able to get gluten-free meals without paying an extra fee.

She added that the defendants she spoke to had public defenders who “hate them” and who “tell them they have to renounce their political views, want them to watch videos and read books that basically is critical race theory training.”


“No one’s been charged with insurrection,” Gohmert said, speaking about those accused of various offenses in connection to the riot.

“In fact, if they were going to charge someone with insurrection, it’s beginning to sound more like those would be agents for the federal government that was there stirring things up, trying to get people to engage in violence,” he claimed.

D.C. Judge Royce Lamberth freed a Jan 6 defendant last month, arguing there were “deplorable and beyond belief” conditions at the D.C. facility where they were being held.

U.S. Marshals were transferring 400 out of a section plagued by clogged toilets and the water was shut off.

Gaetz announced at the event that he would support former President Donald Trump for House Speaker and had told him so.

At a hearing last month, witnesses testified that conditions had been problematic at the jail for years but didn’t get wide attention until the Jan 6 defendants were held there.
