Greene's trade came just one day before she complained about money made off of war.
"War and rumors of war is incredibly profitable and convenient," she wrote on Twitter. "What a sad existence it must be to shill for Globalism & America Last politicians."
Russia's invasion of Ukraine began the following day.
