Orders to rip down a poster this week outside of GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's congressional office came from a Democrat staffer on the House Administration Committee that Democratic California Rep. Zoe Lofgren chairs, according to a GOP source.

Greene has called on the Justice Department to investigate repeat vandalism of her office posters.

Timothy Hysom, chief of staff for Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Jake Auchincloss, has defaced posters hung on the exterior wall of Greene's Longworth House Office Building office, which had prompted Greene to file a complaint with the House Ethics Committee.

The U.S. Justice Department reportedly won't prosecute Hysom.

Greene displayed a poster of Hysom with information about the police request for his arrest warrant outside of her office.

Just the News learned that Hysom sought counsel and formally requested the office Architect of the Capitol remove that poster. The office then consulted with the Democrat staff on Lofgren's committee.

Greene posted a video on Instagram showing that it was ripped down this week. 

According to a Republican aide on the House Administration Committee, Lofgren's committee staff ordered the removal of Greene's poster that showed Hysom's photo. 

The aide told Just the News on Thursday that the House has a policy dating back to 2008 that prohibits the display in the halls of certain items such as posters but Democrats are selectively enforcing it.

Lofgren's office was not available for comment.
