MTG Calls for Bowman to Be Prosecuted Like J6ers for Pulling Fire Alarm, Delaying Vote

Conservative firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene called for Democratic Representative Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) to be prosecuted using the same laws to lock up Jan 6 defendants after he was caught pulling a fire alarm to delay the vote on a stopgap spending bill.

“Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman pulled the fire alarm in the Cannon building this afternoon and interrupted the official proceedings of the House as Republicans worked to keep the government open,” Greene wrote on X.

“I’m calling on the DOJ to prosecute him using the same law they used to prosecute J6 defendants for interfering with an official proceeding.”

“The Democrats literally will do anything to shut OUR government down because billions aren’t going to their favorite country: Ukraine,” Greene added.

In a video shared with Greene’s post, she told reporters, “I wanna talk about Jamaal Bowman pulling the fire alarm.”

“Capitol police are questioning him right now because he’s on video,” she said.

“He violated the exact same law that Jan 6 defendants are being prosecuted for every day,” Greene continued.

“I’m demanding that the Department of Justice prosecute him the same way they prosecute Jan 6 defendants.”

Greene said the move was “unprecedented,” and Bowman pulled the fire alarm as a vote was transpiring in an effort to delay it.

“The Democrats will do anything to make sure it’s shut down because billions of dollars are not going to their favorite country, Ukraine,” Greene said.

She also showed reporters a printout of a law commonly used to prosecute Jan 6 defendants, noting that Bowman’s alleged offense could be punished by up to 20 years in prison under the same rule.

Donald Trump Jr also called for Bowman to face charges, writing on X:

“If they don’t charge Rep Bowman with a crime for endangering the lives of those in the capitol & obstructing congressional proceedings, then they better let every single J6er that’s rotting in prison for nonviolent offenses out with an apology & compensation right f***king now!”

Following the incident, an investigation was launched by the US Capitol Police while House Republicans issued calls for him to be expelled from Congress.

After Bowman was caught on camera pulling the stunt in the Cannon Building, he responded by saying:

“I thought the alarm would open the door,” Bowman told reporters about the incident.

“I was rushing to make a vote, I was trying to get to a door,” he said.

“[Bowman] pulled a fire alarm in Cannon this morning,” a spokesperson for the Congressional Administration Committee said.

“An investigation into why it was pulled is underway.”

McCarthy called for an Ethics Committee investigation into Bowman’s actions should be conducted.

“I’m going to have a discussion with the Democratic Leader about it, but this should not go without punishment,’ he said.

McCarthy secured the House passage of a 45-day stopgap bill to stop a government shutdown and cut off funding for Ukraine.

The narrow victory came amid disagreements inside McCarthy’s own conference as Democrats pushed for a government shutdown over Ukraine funding.

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) acknowledged McCarthy’s victory on Saturday.

“It’s rumored that Pentagon officials are on their way over to the Capitol to lobby for Schumer-McConnell,” tweeted Lee.

“The Military Industrial Complex doesn’t like to lose.”
