QAnon-supporting Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has blamed "teams" of people managing her social media accounts after Facebook posts emerged that appeared to show her endorsing the killing of leading Democrats.
Greene said it was not her but unnamed social media managers who had liked and shared posts calling for the execution of prominent Democrats in 2018 and 2019 before her successful campaign run.
"Fake News CNN is writing yet another hit piece on me focused on my time before running for political office," she wrote in a tweet on Tuesday.
"I will never back down to the enemy of the American people and neither should you."
He statement read: "Over the years, I've had teams of people manage my pages.
"Many posts have been liked. Many posts have been shared. Some did not represent my views.
"Especially the ones that CNN is about to spread across the internet," Greene claimed.
"They are taking old Facebook posts from random users to try to cancel me and silence my voice," she continued.
"They are coming after me because, like President Trump, I will always defend our values."
Greene's tweet came hours after CNN reported she frequently posted far-right extremist views and conspiracies on her page.
A January 2019 post showed Greene, who represents Georgia's 14th Congressional District, like a comment saying "a bullet to the head would be quicker" to remove Nancy Pelosi from office.
Other posts she liked included killing FBI agents who were part of the "deep state" working against Trump.
Another post from April 2018 shows Greene writing a conspiracy about the Iran Nuclear Deal, one of President Obama's foreign policy achievements.
"Now do we get to hang them ?? Meaning H & O ???," a user commented on Greene's post, referring to Hillary Clinton and Obama.
Greene replied: "Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off."
Green has become known as the "QAnon Rep" given her ties to the unfounded conspiracy theory that former president Trump was taking on so-called "deep state" actors.
The theory centers around an anonymous source, Q, who is trying to tell the world a secret – or multiple secrets – via online forums.
Among these claims are unfounded allegations that Donald Trump is waging a secret battle against an alleged paedophile ring populated by the world's elite.
Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have been working to remove tens of thousands of QAnon-linked pages spreading misinformation online.
