Newly unearthed text messages between Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and former Georgia Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in the days before the January 6 Capitol insurrection provide new evidence suggesting that Greene was involved in recruiting others in the GOP to join the attempt at overturning the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Such an action would be illegal and may give new insight into why Greene allegedly asked then-president Donald Trump for a presidential pardon for her role in the larger conspiracy to carry out the planned election coup.

Though Greene denies she requested a pardon from Trump, testimony before the House Select Committee investigating Jan. 6 indicates that she did:

GOP Reps. Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene were among the six GOP lawmakers also asked Trump to pardon them for their efforts in trying to overturn the 2020 election.

During a surprise hearing on Tuesday, June 28, Cassidy Hutchinson, a former White House aide, also testified that former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows were among those who asked the former president for a preemptive pardon after the pro-Trump mob descended upon the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

And now we have the text messages between Greene and Loeffler, which, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, seem to incriminate the controversial congresswoman:

“I need to talk with you about a plan we are developing on how to vote on the electoral college votes on Jan 6th. I need a Senator! And I think this is a major help for you to win on the 5th!!” (Dec. 2, 2020 text)

On Dec. 20, another text from Greene to Loeffler, this one inviting her to a strategy session at the White House:

“Hi Kelly, I’ve organized a meeting with President Trump, his legal team, and Members of electoral college votes for Joe Biden in several key states on January 6th. It’s tomorrow at 2:00. Can you come to the White House? It’s an informational meeting and planning session.”

Loeffler begged off, saying she was spending the day with then-first daughter Ivanka Trump and would be unable to attend the meeting.

“I’m with Ivanka all day Mon, subject to the time of vote on relief package,” Loeffler wrote. “But I’ve said everything is on table with regard to Jan 6.”

After the storming of the Capitol, Loeffler announced she would not agree to try and block certification of the electoral votes by a joint session of Congress:

“The events that have transpired today have forced me to reconsider and I cannot now, in good conscience, object to the certification of these electors.”

Greene, on the other hand, clearly played a role in what took place at the Capitol on that fateful day in January, and could face legal consequences for her role in the insurrection.
