In yet another obvious statement in support of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, insurrectionist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) demanded the United States withdraw from NATO, which would help Russia conquer Ukraine.
Greene, who has not denied that she is a Putin cheerleader, is already under fire for asking Donald Trump for a pardon over her illegal scheming to overturn the 2020 Election and her involvement in the Capitol insurrection on January 6th.
Not content with simply being a traitor when it comes to domestic affairs, Greene took to Twitter on Thursday to demand that the United States bow down to Russia and abandon Europe by withdrawing from NATO, a longtime military alliance that has existed since World War II.
The American people do not want war with Russia, but NATO & our own foolish leaders are dragging us into one.
A war that no one will win.
Escalation over Ukraine, a non-member nation, risking nuclear war is a power play endangering the entire world.
We should pull out of NATO. pic.twitter.com/7XcYWmvATU

Of course, Greene is lying about American support for Ukraine. Polls show that an overwhelming two-thirds of Americans support the United States providing aid to the Eastern European nation, which is a democratic state that seeks closer economic and security ties with NATO and the EU.
In addition, her claim that Biden and other NATO leaders are “dragging” us into war with Russia isn’t true either. While NATO is providing military equipment and other supplies to Ukraine to keep up the fight, American troops are not playing a role in Ukraine. Instead, American troops are being deployed to NATO members such as Poland to provide additional protection in the wake of threats from Putin. Putin’s threats recently resulted in Sweden and Finland electing to join NATO themselves. Poland has been a member since 1999.
Russia’s war against Ukraine has devastatingly backfired on Putin. Russia recently defaulted on its debt for the first time since 1918. The Russian military has suffered heavy losses in troops and equipment, with thousands of troops killed and hundreds of tanks destroyed. The Russian economy lies in shambles and Russia has lost much standing among the international community.
If Greene had her way, we would abandon our allies and allow Putin to invade all of Europe, which would create an even worse problem. Clearly, Republicans like Greene want Putin to win in Ukraine and they want to see the downfall of democracy and freedom in Europe. Traitors like her belong in prison, not Congress.
