Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene pressed FBI Director Christopher Wray to investigate Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s alleged ties to a Facebook group praising Hamas for terrorist attacks against Israel.

During a Homeland Security Committee meeting, Greene criticized the FBI’s focus on Jan. 6 rioters and questioned Wray about investigating Tlaib’s association with Hamas.

Wray stated that the FBI does not investigate people for participating in a Facebook group but noted that the FBI has active investigations into individuals linked with the terrorist group. (Trending: Eight Republicans Who Shamefully Sided With Democrats Over Impeachment)

“Mr. Wray, are you interested in members of Congress that are organizing and participating in a Facebook group that has ties to Hamas?” Green pressed.

“We’re not investigating people for participating in a Facebook group,” Wray answered.

“You’re going to tell me, as FBI director, you will not investigate Americans or United States members of Congress that are linked to known terrorists?” Greene said.

“That’s not what I said,” Wray shot back.

“I would hope to God that Intifada and Jihad and terrorists in our very country would be something that you would prioritize instead of a three-hour event at the Capitol that happened nearly four years ago (referring to the Jan. 6 riots),” Greene stated.

Greene also filed a motion to censure Tlaib for “antisemitic activity” following the Hamas attacks, but it was tabled in the House.
