Marjorie Taylor Greene ‘swatted’ in middle of night by alleged ‘transgender youth rights’ supporter

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., claims that an anonymous tipster sicced the police on her in the middle of the night in a move known as “swatting.”

The congresswoman tweeted about the alleged incident which has been confirmed by the local police department.

“Last night, I was swatted just after 1 am. I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County. More details to come,” she wrote.

A report by Yahoo claims the police confirmed that they received a report about several gunshots coming from a home in the area, only to find that the residence being reported belonged to Greene.

The caller also allegedly dialed the police again and used a voice changer to explain their reasoning for placing the false report.

“Dispatchers got a second 911 call from the suspect, who was using a computer-generated voice. The caller said he or she was upset about Greene’s political views on transgender youth rights,” the report reads.

The congresswoman used the moment to push the “Protect Children’s Innocence Act,” likely one of the many reasons the alleged swatter was upset with Greene.

Greene also went on ‘The Charlie Kirk Show’ to discuss the events of the early morning activity, including being woken from her sleep to pounding on her door, and noise outside her windows. She explained that her first instinct was to grab her gun, though she claims a “gut instinct” told her to not take her firearm with her to answer her door. A good move, considering why the police were there in the first place.

“I opened the door and the officer standing there he said ‘ma’am are you okay? Is everything okay here?'” Greene recalled. “But it was the body posture of the police that was really concerning me. I was upset, I was afraid, I was like ‘there’s something terribly wrong’ and I said ‘yeah, I’m okay. I was sleeping.'”

She goes on to explain that she was trying to figure out why so many officers with guns would be on her property at such an early hour of the morning, when they finally told her about the call.

“They came around the corner and came up the steps and told me that someone had called in to the 911 call center here in Rome, Georgia, and had reported that someone had shot either her husband or her boyfriend five times in the chest in a bathtub,” Greene said. “They were sending the police to help and then they called back a second time and said ‘there’s children in the home.’ So with those phone calls they were setting up a very serious danger scenario in a home, so officers when they get those kinds of calls, they know what they’re getting into.”

“Swatting” is a tactic used by people who call the police to falsely report a violent, usually gun-based crime. This report causes the local police to send a SWAT team to the home in question. They invade the home expecting violence and high tensions. This sets up a dangerous situation that can lead to the death of either officers or the people in the home in the worst-case scenarios.

The local police department is reportedly working with the Capitol Police to determine who made the alleged phone calls.
