Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Sunday it was “unfortunate” a contentious House floor spat with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) became public, alleging the latter “leaked” it to the press.
Green confirmed last week that she called her fellow House Freedom Caucus member a “little b***h” during a House floor confrontation because both of them had introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden.
“Well, you know, I find it unfortunate that Lauren Boebert leaked that conversation that we had to the press,” Greene said on Fox News’s MediaBuzz with Howard Kurtz. “But once she leaked it out, I had to confirm that that’s, in fact, what I said.”
The details of the spat were first reported by Daily Beast, citing two sources that witnessed the conversation and a third that was familiar with the matter. Greene confirmed the story later to reporters, though there’s no evidence to show Boebert was the source of the initial report.
