Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican, has promised “investigations” for corporations that stopped donating to GOP politicians who supported former President Donald Trump‘s claims of a “stolen” 2020 election.
Greene said during a Wednesday appearance on former Trump adviser Steve Bannon‘s War Room podcast that, should Republicans regain control of the House following next month’s midterms, GOP representatives would target corporate donors that refused to continue financial support to those who supported claims of massive fraud in the last presidential election.
for companies and lobbyists to stop donating to Republicans after the insurrection, suggesting that GOP politicians would pursue revenge after Bannon asked her whether corporations needed to “fear” a “populist House.”
“Let’s just put it like this,” Greene responded. “You know what they did after January 6th, Steve? They stopped donating—all the lobbyists, all the big corporations stopped donating to a whole bunch of my Republican colleagues that they used to donate to. They said, ‘oh no, we can’t support you because of the big lie,’ or whatever they want to call it.”
“That’s not going to be forgotten by a whole bunch of my Republican colleagues, because that was really ridiculous and wrong,” she continued. “There is going to be investigations coming. And there should be, because the way corporations have conducted themselves … I’ve always called it corporate communism.”
