GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Tuesday said she was honored to recently meet "QAnon Shaman," who was sentenced to 41 months in prison for participating in the Jan.6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol and criticized fellow members of the House Republican Conference for not helping him and other protesters.

The protester, whose name is Jake Chansley, was sentenced in November 2021 and was released earlier this year.

"I was honored to meet Jake Chansley this weekend, and I want to explain why I say honored, Greene, a conservative firebrand, said in a lengthy social media post Tuesday

"The Biden regime’s DOJ wrongfully prosecuted him for innocently and nonviolently walking through the Capital, and he was then treated horrifically in prisons even being held in solitary confinement for over 10 months just like many other J6’ers."

She also wrote: "I am constantly angry and frustrated with my own GOP conference that most Republicans in Washington refuse to do anything to help the J6’ers, while the federal government continues to tyrannically destroy their lives."
