Greene Expresses How ‘Honored’ She Was Meeting ‘QAnon Shaman’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) recently expressed how honored she was to meet the “QAnon Shaman,” who was sentenced to over three years in prison over his actions during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol protests.

The so-called “QAnon Shaman,” whose name is Jacob Chansley, was sentenced to prison in November 2021 but has since been released.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Greene said, “I was honored to meet Jake Chansley this weekend, and I want to explain why I say honored.”

Greene continued her post by accusing the Biden administration’s weaponized Department of Justice (DOJ) of “wrongfully” prosecuting Chansley.

“The Biden regime’s DOJ wrongfully prosecuted him for innocently and nonviolently walking through the Capital, and he was then treated horrifically in prisons even being held in solitary confinement for over 10 months just like many other J6’ers,” the Georgia congresswoman added.

“I am constantly angry and frustrated with my own GOP conference that most Republicans in Washington refuse to do anything to help the J6’ers, while the federal government continued to tyrannically destroy their lives,” she continued.

The treatment of the imprisoned Jan. 6 protesters has been controversial for years. The Biden administration’s double standard prosecutorial system is seen by the DOJ’s refusal to prosecute Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters or far-left Antifa members.

As the 2024 presidential election nears, former President Donald Trump, the likely GOP nominee, has said that if elected, he would pardon most of the Jan. 6 protesters.

In January 2022, the former president revealed his intention to pardon the 2021 Capitol protesters.

“Another thing we’ll do, and so many people have been asking me about it, if I run and if I win, we will treat those people from Jan. 6 fairly,” Trump said, months before announcing his run for the White House. “We will treat them fairly, And if it requires pardons, we will give them pardons. Because they are being treated so unfairly.”

To date, the DOJ has charged over 1,000 individuals with connections to the Jan. 6 protests. Around 300 are currently serving time in prison. The department noted that nearly all were accused of trespassing on restricted federal grounds.
