(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.) told CNN on Wednesday that newly elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is among the "handful" of lawmakers who are "morally bankrupt," "depraved," and "dangerous."

Crow said House Democrats are looking at ways to "stop" Greene: "And whether this is an expulsion proceeding, a censure, you know, we can't let this stand," Crow said.

Crow was reacting to a tweet posted Monday night by Greene, a Trump supporter, who predicted that the latest impeachment effort would fail:

"President Trump will remain in office," Green tweeted overnight. "This Hail Mary attempt to remove him from the White House is an attack on every American who voted for him. Democrats must be held accountable for the political violence inspired by their rhetoric."

 

Twitter labeled the tweet, saying "Election officials have certified Joe Biden as the winner of the U.S. Presidential election."

 

John Berman, co-anchor of CNN's "New Day," told Crow, "I'm shocked that, frankly, at this point, she still has a Twitter account." Then Berman invited Rep. Crow to react, which he did:

There are, unfortunately, a handful of members of Congress, and Miss Taylor Greene is just one of them, who are morally bankrupt, they are depraved and they're frankly dangerous individuals.

So we're looking at our options within the House, as to how we stop this. And whether this is an expulsion proceeding, a censure, you know, we can't let this stand. Because this is exactly my point.

Donald Trump is one thing. He's shown us time and time again who he is, but he doesn't do this without support.

You know, last Wednesday, there were tens of thousands of people rioting around the Capitol, assaulting the Capitol, you know, over a thousand that probably got in. And I believe that those people, most of them, truly believe in their heart that this election was stolen, despite the facts to the contrary, courts ruling to the contrary, secretaries of state and Republican officials around the country saying to the contrary.

And it's because there are a few depraved individuals that give oxygen to these conspiracy theories and legitimatize it. So that has to stop, and we have to figure out a way to get back to facts and stop these false realities that have been created for so many Americans.
