Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) revealed that former President Donald Trump and former First Lady Melania Trump are both "just sick" because some Jan. 6 defendants are still behind bars.
During an interview with right-wing podcaster Steve Bannon on Saturday, Greene explained that she had posted a thread of messages defending the former president on Twitter. Greene said that she was trying to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday when she saw Twitter users angry at Trump for failing to pardon the Jan. 6 defendants.
"I thought, this is ridiculous; they're lying about him," the lawmaker recalled. "People are lying about him. The very idea that he could have pardoned all the Jan. 6 defendants before he left the White House on Jan. 20 is impossible because the high majority of those people weren't even arrested until after he left office!"
"And he didn't even know them!" she continued. "He had no idea who they are. He doesn't know who they are still. He had nothing to do with what they did on Jan. 6, um, so it would have been impossible for him to magically know how to find these people and pardon them."
Greene said that she gave a report about the Jan. 6 defendants to Trump and the former first lady.
"President Trump and Melania were both just sick over what they learned," she revealed. "And he said over and over that he will — he will pardon the Jan. 6 defendants."
"This is real political persecution," Greene added. "And it shouldn't be happening in America and so the criticism on President Trump is ridiculous!"

'This should be a no-brainer!': Former adviser pounds GOP leaders' silence on Trump dining with anti-Semites
During an appearance on MSNBC's "The Sunday Show," former Republican Party campaign adviser Tara Setmayer went on an extended tirade attacking the GOP leadership for remaining silent about Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago dining experience with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes -- both of whom are vocal and notorious anti-Semites.
Speaking with host Jonathan Capehart, Setmayer -- now a principal at the anti-Trump Lincoln Project -- said that the former president handed Republicans a gift if they are truly interested in moving on from him.
With that in mind, she scorched Republicans who are looking the other way at Trump breaking bread with a Holocaust-denier.
"Listen, this should be a no-brainer," she told the host and panel. "Where are the elected leaders of the Republican Party marching on the Sunday shows condemning this? Saying 'hell no, this person has no place in the Republican Party'?"
"Donald Trump has abdicated any moral responsibility, authority, anything, to be anywhere near the elected office again," she argued. "We didn't want this ilk in our party -- we are moving on."
"Where is that?" she continued. "You don't hear that from McConnell McCarthy, from anyone. I mean, people like Asa Hutchinson and some of these non-elected officials come out and say it. but they didn't have to face the voters anymore. This is who the Republican Party has become and they have enabled it and they don't care or they are too cowardly to speak up because they're worried about losing power. This is a problem."
Reminded about outgoing Arkansas Gov. Hutchinson's comments on CNN, Setmayer bluntly stated, "Who cares? He's not elected anymore."

Former television host Meghan McCain blasted failed Arizona candidate for governor Kari Lake (R) on Sunday over an ongoing family feud and for denying the outcome of the 2022 election for governor.
"She made it so personal," McCain told Fox News host Howard Kurtz. "She has attacked my mother, my brother, my dad, me. I mean, it made it wildly personal. Things I don't want to repeat on your show because it's so gross."
"I would love for anyone to run for office as a Republican and not just crap all over my family," she added. "They keep losing. My dad (Sen. John McCain) is the last Republican to win a general election on a national level in Arizona. Arizona is now blue!"
McCain said that denying the outcome of elections was "a completely losing path for Republicans moving forward."
"Before the election, it was something people thought [Lake] would do if she ended up losing so I'm certainly not surprised," McCain concluded. "And again, if she has evidence, go ahead and show us."
