Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican representing Georgia’s 14th Congressional district, has made no secret that she’s against any further funding for Ukraine.
The ‘America first’ congresswoman is not afraid to voice her opinion and has shared that we could better use that money to solve our own domestic problems, namely our very porous southern border.
At a rally in Iowa with President Trump earlier this month, Greene said,
“Under Republicans, not another penny will go to Ukraine. Our country comes first. The only border [Democrats] care about is Ukraine, not America’s southern border. They don’t care about our border or our people.”
Now that the Republicans have the majority in the House, Greene wants to follow the money.
On Sunday, the congresswoman tweeted, “I want an audit of where every single penny has gone in funding to Ukraine.”
“Everyone is ok with that, right?”
While many Americans cheered the effort to help Ukraine in the war with Russia, many others were skeptical.
With the collapse of the cryptocurrency exchange, FTX, their ties with the Ukrainian government and the Democrat party are surfacing, raising more questions.
Fox News host Jesse Watters shared his thoughts on the situation on his show ‘Jessie Watters Primetime.’
He said, “This is bigger than Bernie Madoff, but unlike Bernie Madoff, who was getting rich off a Ponzi scheme, the Democratic Party was getting rich off of FTX. FTX came onto the scene in 2019, and it spent $10 million to put Joe Biden in the White House in 2020. And the guy running FTX, the second-biggest Democrat donor in the midterms after Soros, of course, spent $40 million to get Democrats elected.”
Where does Ukraine fit into the equation?
Watters went on to explain:
“Ukraine was an investor in FTX. You may be asking why is a country in the middle of a war investing in crypto? Shouldn’t they be buying weapons, or I mean, if they have to invest in anything, doesn’t crypto sound a little risky for Zelenskyy? You wouldn’t want an investment with a solid rate of return and years of stable growth? No. Zelenskyy thought he’d give it to a guy living in a tax haven fresh out of college with funny hair. Well, when Democrats are sending you billions of dollars of weaponry, the least you could do is reward their favorite megadonor.”
“And what did FTX do with the money Ukraine invested? Well, they plowed it right back into the Democratic Party. Democrats send money to Ukraine, Ukraine sends money to FTX, and FTX sends money to the Democrats campaigns.”
Marjorie Taylor Greene is right to want an investigation into the billions of dollars the U.S. has sent to Ukraine. Is this a money laundering operation to fund the Democrats?
Will Greene have enough support to take it up when the new Congress meets in January? Time will tell.
