Not long after Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) was caught pulling a fire alarm at the House office building as part of an effort to delay a vote on a Republican-backed stopgap spending bill, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) issued a call for the Department of Justice to prosecute the far-left representative under the same laws it used to lock up defendants who were involved with the Capitol Riot on Jan. 6, 2021.
"Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman pulled the fire alarm in the Cannon building this afternoon and interrupted the official proceedings of the House as Republicans worked to keep the government open," Greene wrote on X. "I’m calling on the DOJ to prosecute him using the same law they used to prosecute J6 defendants for interfering with an official proceeding."
"The Democrats literally will do anything to shut OUR government down because billions aren’t going to their favorite country: Ukraine," added Greene.
In a video shared along with the post, Greene could be seen telling reporters, "I wanna talk about Jamaal Bowman pulling the fire alarm ... Capitol police are questioning him right now because he's on video."
"He violated the exact same law that January 6 defendants are being prosecuted for every day ... I'm demanding that the Department of Justice prosecute him the same way they prosecute January 6 defendants."
Greene said that Bowman pulled the fire alarm as a vote was transpiring, and that the move was "unprecedented."
"The Democrats will do anything to make sure it's shut down because billions of dollars are not going to their favorite country, Ukraine," Greene exclaimed.
The Georgia congresswoman showed reporters a printout of a law commonly used to prosecute Jan. 6 defendants and noted that under the same rule, Bowman's alleged offense could be punished by up to 20 years in prison.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
