Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is continuing to draw criticism from Democrats after her slate of conspiracy theories were exposed by CNN and other media outlets.

Speaking to MSNBC on Tuesday, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) explained that of all things, Congress is a "collegial body" above all else.

"When you have someone like Marjorie Taylor Greene who actually promoted violence against fellow members when she liked and promoted statements about putting a bullet in Nancy Pelosi," she said. "When she actually stalked a teenager from my community who was the victim of the Parkland mass shooting. When she continues to promote dangerous insurrection infused statements that help lead to the riot and attack on the capitol, then you forfeit your right to make policy in a collegial body. If [Rep. Kevin] McCarthy (R-CA) has not removed her from her two committee assignments, the House of Representatives should do that and I would file the legislation to move that process forward."

MSNBC host Chris Jansing explained that the Republican Party said that they would remain neutral in a GOP primary in 2022 against Greene, which she called a kind of "David Duke situation." It harkens back to 1992 when Duke attempted to run against George H.W. Bush.

"Marjorie Taylor Greene is the David Duke of this day," said Wasserman Schultz. "How do they not see that she is equally if not more poisonous to the United States of America and our way of life and our beliefs? This is a woman who promotes violence. She doesn't just make offensive statements and when you have someone who endangers the lives of others in our body, you have to make sure you render her powerless."
