MTG doesn’t hold back in excoriating Crenshaw for comparing cops to ‘deep state FBI operatives’

U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, continues to find himself at odds with the MAGA wing of the Republican Party, as represented by U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., among others.

The two Republican lawmakers have been trading barbs over the FBI’s unprecedented rain on the Mar-a-Lago home of former President Donald Trump, an historic action widely seen as a political ploy by Democrats to prevent Trump from running for a second term in 2024. The FBI has seriously damaged its trust with many Americans because of its recent track record, be it the bureau’s dubious actions in the Russian collusion hoax, the targeting of concerned parents as domestic terrorists or the Gov. Whitmer kidnapping fiasco.

The raid on Trump was a last straw for many who see the FBI as a weaponized arm of the Democratic Party that can’t be reformed, and Greene has joined the calls to defund the bureau.

Appearing Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Crenshaw took exception to the idea of disbanding the FBI, comparing the bureau to police departments while naming Greene in saying such calls are “crazy.”

Host Jake Tapper egged Crenshaw on by calling Greene one of his favorites, while cherry picking the violent rhetoric from a handful on the right.

“Oh yeah. It’s crazy,” Crenshaw said. “And it makes us seem like extremist Democrats, right? Marjorie and AOC can go join the defund the law enforcement club, if they want, 99% of Republicans are not on that train. What we want is accountability. We want transparency. And the criticisms we’re leveling against the FBI and DOJ are fully warranted. It is not those criticisms that lead to a crazy person attacking an FBI agent.”

Crenshaw may be surprised at just how many on the right have lost all faith in the FBI.

Either way, as might be expected, Greene fired back with ferocity in a long Twitter thread, saying it was “shameful” that Crenshaw would compare cops with “corrupt deep state FBI operatives like Peter Strozk & Lisa Page.”

MTG was incensed with the comparison to U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and was just getting warmed up in taking on the former Navy SEAL.

“For the record. MTG: Defunding the FBI is defunding the corrupt deep state that is weaponizing our federal agencies against conservatives all across America. AOC: Defund the police is defunding our community protectors and is creating lawlessness across America,” she said, adding: “You have to be a fool who only listens to America Last ‘elite’ think tanks and World Economic Forum globalist lectures to actually believe you can just lecture the people you need to support you into believing your nauseating word salad.”

“It must be your master’s degree from Harvard that qualifies you to inform the public they are wrong in their opinion about the communist style leaders in the FBI. I mean surely everyone is supposed to believe the FBI wire tapping Trump Tower under Obama was perfectly ok,” Greene continued. “And of course everyone is supposed to just trust intelligence operatives like Jim Comey, James Clapper, and Christopher Wray. Dan Crenshaw says they are just like the police AOC wants to defund. Dan doesn’t see a difference and says neither should you.”

The blistering lecture continued: “He wants you to see no difference in the FBI & DOJ setting up the Russia collusion hoax wasting $30+ million taxpayer dollars on the Democrat’s communist style political witch hunt and local law enforcement just trying to get drug gangs off the streets and lock up murderers.”

“Dan just wants more useless congressional hearings for members of congress to get their 5 minute CSPAN clips instead of actually doing the hard work of gutting our federal agencies of Marxists like Merrick Garland,” Greene opined. “Dan says shame on you for using your first amendment freedom of speech proclaiming your outrage over Merrick Garland sending the FBI to raid Maralago even though Pres Trump and his attorneys were nicely working with them and the FBI had already been there and inspected the very documents they raided for.”

“Even Andrew Cuomo who killed elderly nursing home patients by locking them up with covid patients cried foul on the FBI violating Pres Trump and his family’s 4th amendment rights. But Dan says that’s extreme and anyone who wants to defund the corrupt FBI is just like AOC,” Greene tweeted.

“Try telling that to your voters Dan,” she concluded. “They might not have a degree from Harvard and hang out with Klaus Schwab but they have the wisdom to see the very clear difference between the politically corrupt FBI and our good men and women guarding our communities each night.”
