Former Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA05), on CNN earlier today:

  • “If Liz [Cheney] really has a…very concerted effort to oust her and Marjorie Taylor Greene say only loses one committee but keeps another committee, I think it’s going to show where the Republican Party is right now.”
  • “I do think you’re going to see a huge moderate swath of the Republican Party start to exit.”
  • “What scares me is when you have people spouting ridiculousness like Marjorie Taylor Greene and there’s no accountability for that, you’re going to see other types of conspiracy theories and other types of contagions socially that start to sort of burst forth based on the QAnon baseline…that is my fear…you don’t want crazy on crazy here, and that’s what we’re going to get if we continue down this road…I don’t think Marjorie Taylor Greene believes there’s any consequences to what she’s saying online at this point.”
  • “Every conspiracy theory is now on the table, and if that plays to fundraising, if that plays to your base, why not use it if you’re just sort of politically naked in your ambitions?”
