House Republicans will probe the ‘collusion and conspiracy’ between Special Counsel Jack Smith and the state prosecutors targeting Donald Trump, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview.
The Republican from Georgia, a close ally of Trump, said she was talking with House Oversight Chairman James Comer, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan and Speaker Kevin McCarthy about launching the fresh investigation when lawmakers return to Capitol Hill in September.
‘Look at the real collusion and conspiracy that’s happening between the Department of Justice and the state DAs, because basically, they are abusing the law and abusing the justice systems, not only on the federal level but in the state,’ she said.
‘I want to know how much coordination is happening between them and it’s all in an effort to target President Trump. And it’s completely unfair and it’s a weaponization of our government, all for politics.’
She called the arraignments against Trump made by the Justice Department, the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Fulton County DA Fani Willis ‘in kind campaign contributions’ to President Joe Biden.
‘So is it like are we going to have to cut is it an in kind donation because basically, that’s what this should be considered.’

Greene spoke to DailyMail.com in Milkwaukee, where she will attend the Republican primary debate on Wednesday night as a surrogate for Donald Trump, who is skipping the event.
She was on the phone with the former president when the reporters for DailyMail.com arrived at a hotel in downtown Milwaukee for the interview.
‘He’s in a great mood. He’s just so funny. He always cracks me up. So we always chat about, you know, random, normal life things. He’s always great about asking about my family and my kids, of course, my mom and everybody,’ she said.
She also said the two also discussed his poll numbers – Trump is leading all his rivals for the GOP nomination by double digits.
The two also talked about Thursday when Trump will turn himself in at the Fulton County jailhouse in Atlanta to be arraigned on charges related to attempts to intefere with Georgia’s 2020 election results.
She said she was telling the former president about a meeting she had during August recess with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency. She said she learned a ‘child is sold for sex 7,200 times on average. Our state is horrible.’
Georgia is a transportation hub in the South due to Atlanta’s large international airport and the I-75 and I-85 cooridors.
‘I was saying, President Trump, I can’t believe that this woman who’s the Fulton County DA Fulton County’s where the city of Atlanta is where a lot of this child sex trafficking happens. That should be her focus,’ Greene said.
Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, is leading the prosecution in the state. In New York, Braggs has charged Trump in relation to a hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels. Smith, the special counsel, has charged Trump in two federal trials: one related to classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago and the second tied to attempts to overturn the 2020 election results.
The timing of the trials is expected to overlap dates on the Republican presidential primary calendar.
Trump has said he is not guilty on all charges and claims he is the victim of a ‘witch hunt’ and the weaponization of the federal government.

Republicans, who control the House of Representatives, have been aiding Trump’s argument with their probes of the investigations against him. They hold subpoena power in the House and could haul prosecutors before their panels.
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is examining ways to force Smith to testify before Congress. His panel has asked the Justice Department for a slew of documents related to their Trump investigations.
Trump’s allies in Congress also have launched probes of Biden’s eldest son Hunter Biden, his business dealings and if the president profited from them. President Biden said he has never been involved in his son’s business deals.
Congress is currently on its August recess but returns to Capitol Hill after Labor Day.
