•, By Mike LaChance

To her credit, Greene has visited these prisoners before now.

Not nearly enough elected Republicans have visited these prisoners or involved themselves in their defense. Better late than never.

ABC News reports:

House Republicans say they plan to visit Jan. 6 defendants in jail

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee said Wednesday they are planning a visit with some defendants who are being held in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer of Kentucky and Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who also sits on the panel, told ABC News that the committee is planning to send a letter this week to lawmakers regarding the planned visit to the Washington, D.C., detention facility.

Greene said the visit would focus on the conditions of those jailed over Jan. 6, including what she claimed to be "reports of abuse."

"They're pretrial and they haven't even been convicted and they're not allowed to see their families, many times are not allowed to see their attorneys — the food has been a major complaint," Greene alleged. "There's been complaints of it tasting like cleaner."
