Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene isn’t letting up on her campaign to get rid of Joe Biden’s DHS Secretary.

During a hearing on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, the lawmaker told Alejandro Mayorkas to resign as homeland security secretary.

Greene also slammed FBI Director Christopher Wray for not combating pro-Palestinian activists.

From the New York Post:

Greene (R-Ga.) called out Republicans for teaming up with Democrats to block her impeachment resolution against Mayorkas earlier this week — while warning the security chief that his days are numbered.

“Eight Republicans joined the Democrats and protected your job,” she told Mayorkas. “But I want you to know you have a short time coming. You can honorably resign or we’re going to impeach you.”

“Secretary Mayorkas continues to be laser-focused on the safety and security of our nation,” a Department of Homeland Security spokesperson said in a statement. “This baseless attack is completely without merit and a harmful distraction from our critical national security priorities.”

Greene then went on the attack against Wray, who joined Mayorkas for a House Homeland Security Committee hearing about global threats.

She berated him for what she described as the lack of FBI action against the Oct. 18 pro-Palestinian protest on Capitol Hill.

“I haven’t seen on the news where the FBI is hunting them down with helicopters, tanks in the streets, raiding their homes with flashbangs, targeting these people,” she complained while noting a text message allegedly on one of the protesters’ phones discussing global intifada.

During the hearing, Wray also clashed with Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.), who grilled him about whether the bureau had agents embedded in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Wray strenuously denied any notion that the ransacking of the Capitol was orchestrated by “FBI sources or FBI agents,” but declined to get into where the bureau has confidential sources.

“We can’t get a straight answer, although we have a tremendous amount of evidence harvested and reviewed over the course of the last year which you will see in September,” Higgins began his questioning.

“You confirmed that the FBI had confidential human sources at the Stop the Steal rally on January 6th here in DC, sir?”


“I’m not going to get into where we have or have not used confidential human sources,” Wray replied.
