Today, Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) released the following statement on the resolution intended to strip Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee assignments.

“Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s previous rhetoric and conduct are completely unacceptable. The more her past statements have come to light, the more troubled I have become. However, these statements were made before she was a Member of Congress. While I find them to be abhorrent, I do not believe we should set the precedent of stripping Members of their committee assignments based on their actions before they were sworn Members of Congress. I will not vote to strip Congresswoman Greene of her committee assignments at this time. If Congresswoman Greene makes any form of hateful statement while serving in this body moving forward, I will call on my party’s leadership to hold her accountable.”
