Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., announced on Saturday that she would be reintroducing her resolution to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib, but would be removing the word "insurrection."

"I’m reintroducing my censure resolution against Terrorist Tlaib," Greene wrote on the social media platform X. "I am removing 'insurrection' and replacing it with 'illegal occupation' on Oct 18th that broke the same federal laws as Jan 6 and led to hundreds of arrests and assault on Cap Police."

She went on to call out the 23 Republicans who voted against her resolution the first time and stated if they could censure Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., they could censure Tlaib. 

"Hopefully the 23 Republicans who voted no to censure Pro-terrorists Pro-Hamas Anti-Israel anti-Semitic Rashida Tlaib will use their freedom of speech in congress to censure (condemn) Terrorist Tlaib’s speech, lies, and actions that incited an illegal occupation on Oct 18th," she added. "They censured Adam Schiff so they should be able to vote to censure her."

Greene formally introduced her original resolution to censure Tlaib over her anti-Israel statements and her participation in a pro-Palestinian protest that saw demonstrators occupy the House Cannon Office Building.

The resolution was tabled earlier this week, with some GOP representatives voting to table it, including Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., who cited free speech as the reason for his vote.

"January 6 protestors were not insurrectionists, nor were those led by Rep. Tlaib," Massie wrote on X. "I voted to table a censure resolution of Rep Tlaib in part because it was modeled after legislation that condemned J6 protestors. Also: Free speech means protecting even the speech you don’t like."

Greene said that while she thinks Tlaib should be expelled from Congress, hopefully she will be censured.
