Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has suggested that she suspects Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration may have played a role in the alleged coup d’état attempt in Russia.
Greene took to Twitter to respond to earlier reports of Wagner mercenary troops making their way to Moscow.
The head of the Wagner Private Military Company, Evgene Prigozhin, never made it to Moscow, however.
Instead, he turned his troops around and ordered them to go back to their bases.
Prigozhin’s decided to stand down after negotiating with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko for several hours.
Like many other Americans, Greene finds the entire situation very suspicious.
In a post on Twitter, Greene said:
“After our government has been funding a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine for over a year, I sure hope our government isn’t behind a coup attempt currently happening in Russia.
“Regime change in a nuclear-armed country may lead to terrible consequences the American people don’t want.”

She followed up by posting a doctored image of suspected Jan. 6 FBI plant Ray Epps.
The meme features Epps in Moscow wearing a Soviet Ushanka hat.

Greene is not the only one to publicly question the Biden admin’s potential involvement in the events.
Fox News Host Rachel Duffy also questioned whether the US government was behind Wagner’s recent moves.

Meanwhile, a new report reveals that the U.S. government knew of a “coup” plot against President Vladimir Putin weeks ago and planned for Russia to fall into “civil war.”
U.S. officials revealed that intelligence was gathered earlier this month that indicated Yevgeniy Prigozhin, the chief of the Wagner mercenary group, was planning armed action against the Russian defense establishment, the Washington Post reported on Saturday night.
The U.S. spy agencies promptly informed the White House and other government entities to ensure preparedness, according to the report.
