Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene described to Alex Jones of InfoWars that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Elaine Chao, are “fully bought and paid for by China.” “Mitch McConnell, he lies to your face. He says he’s a Republican. He’s the leader in the Senate of the Republican Party, but he’s married to Elaine Chao, and they’re fully bought and paid for by China on record. And everyone knows it, but no one does anything about it,” Greene told the controversial host on Sunday.

It was not the first round of this long-running bout, but it was perhaps the most clarifying and consequential for the elections this fall and 2024. Chao, born in Taiwan, is now the former U.S. secretary of transportation and secretary of labor. She also made history by being the first Asian American woman appointed to a presidential cabinet in history.

She is against our American ways. She’s a communist. She is honest about it though, she’ll tell you.” After her comments about McConnell and Chao, Jones went on, “They are literally on the payroll of the CCP,” to which Greene further replied, “Absolutely they are, and so are many others.” [tweet_embed] February 23, 2022[/tweet_embed] The offices of McConnell, Greene, and Ocasio-Cortez did not immediately respond to requests for comments. Last month, Greene told Steve Bannon on his War Room podcast that her colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, “has a very Conservative voting record. More Conservative than some of my Republican colleagues, by the way.” The comments were made just before the Republican National Committee passed a resolution to censure Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger. The censure was partially because of the pair’s role in the January 6 Committee, charged with investigating the 2021 Capitol breach.
