According to a tweet from the Hill's Scott Wong, an aide to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) made a comment to Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) in the halls of Congress on Friday afternoon that led to the California Democrat to fire right back with an expletive.
On the day that CNN reported that Taylor Greene's harassment of Democratic lawmakers dates back two years -- and a day after the QAnon lawmaker harassed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) -- Wong tweeted, "Another verbal altercation just happened in the House: MTG's spokesman Nick Dyer told @RepSwalwell: 'Biden says you can take off your mask' Swalwell confronted Dyer, got in his face and according to Dyer, said: 'You don't tell me what to f*cking do!'"
Wong admitted that he didn't hear Swalwell's response, however Swalwell quickly tweeted, "I had a mask on as I stepped off the Floor. An aide with @mtgreenee yelled at me to take my mask off. No one should be bullied for wearing a mask. So I told the bully what I thought of his order. Predictably, he went speechless. I regret I wasn't more explicit."
Greene then accused Swalwell of chasing the aide in question. "Eric Swalwell chased my staffer into the Captiol [sic], cornered him and exploded in anger inches from his face," the congresswoman claimed.

MAGA fan accused of murdering his wife -- then fraudulently submitting her ballot for Trump: prosecutors
A supporter of former President Donald Trump has admitted to committing voter fraud by submitting the ballot of his dead wife -- whom he is also accused of murdering.
Local news station KDVR reports that Colorado MAGA fan Barry Morphew was hit with new election fraud charges this week after prosecutors discovered that he illegally sent in his late wife's ballot to give the former president an additional vote in last year's presidential election.
When asked by investigators about submitting his wife's ballot, Morphew admitted to doing so but insisted that she should have voted for Trump were she still alive.
"I wanted Trump to win," the man admitted. "I know she was going to vote for Trump anyways."
Morphew also rationalized that Democrats were supposedly committing mass voter, so he figured giving Trump an extra vote would help even out the score.
Morphew was arrested for the murder of wife Suzanne Morphew last week, roughly one year after she was last seen alive.
In addition to facing charges related to election fraud, Morphew is also being held without bail on charges of first-degree murder, tampering with evidence, and attempting to influence a public servant.
Watch KDVR's report on Morphew's arrest below.
In an interview on the Meidas Touch podcast, former GOP campaign strategist Rick Wilson stated there was no doubt in his mind that -- should Republicans regain control of the House -- they will initiate impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris as one of their first acts.
Stating he was dead serious, Wilson predicted impeachment hearings and warned Democrats to prepare for the worst including another Benghazi-style inquisition.
"They will run show-trial Benghazi hearings every day that will never end, "he explained. "They will drag the administration into a constant stream of having to defend itself in front of yahoos like [GOP Reps. Madison] Cawthorn and [Marjorie Taylor] Greene and [Paul] Gosar and Jim Jordan and [Matt] Gaetz and all of these other morons."
"They will constantly grind away at the administration's ability to do work and to do business and to get things done," he continued. "And again, they will impeach Joe Biden. They will impeach Vice President Harris. They will go after, all the brutality Republicans bring to bear, and as Stuart [Stevens] and I always joke, we've been around this for a long time, we helped build a lot of these systems, we know what they could do.
"Democrats who think they are easily going to keep the House are out of their damn minds," he added for emphasis.
