Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), the outspoken and controversial lawmaker representing northwest Georgia, is being questioned at a hearing that will determine whether or not she will be disqualified to run again for re-election. 

The issue is whether Greene was involved in the January 6 insurrection. A provision in the 14th amendment forbids any elected official from holding elected office who took an oath to uphold the Constitution and "engaged in insurrection or rebellion" against the Constitution.

During the hearing, Greene stated under oath that she did not remember if she talked to anyone in government about a large protest in Washington D.C. When pressed further about her recollections on the matter and asked whether she spoke to Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) or his staff or Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) Congressman, Greene again stated that she did not remember. 

Greene also stated she did not remember if she spoke to anyone at the White House about the fact that there were plans underway for large demonstrations in Washington on January 6.
