Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene said that Democrats want former President Donald Trump "dead," while suggesting that plans are being made to have the ex-president "murdered" in jail.

Greene, one of the most outspoken proponents of the Trump MAGA movement in Congress, claimed during an interview with Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Monday that the former president's ongoing legal woes show that Democrats "literally want him dead."

Trump is currently on trial in New York City, where he has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. He is facing dozens more charges across three other criminal cases, while maintaining his innocence and claiming to be the victim of "persecution" and "election interference."

Greene told Jones on Monday that Trump was being targeted with "rigged trials" and an "unbelievable perversion of our justice system" before suggesting that Democrats are hoping for his death, citing a proposal from Democratic Congressman Bennie Thompson to strip convicted felons of Secret Service protection.

"The Democrats aren't sorry about it ... They literally want him dead," Greene said. "Bennie Thompson introduced a bill to take away his Secret Service protection. That's how serious they are. They want [former] President Trump dead."

"They want to lock him up in jail for the rest of his life so that he dies in jail," she continued. "And they want to take away his Secret Service protection so that he is murdered somewhere in jail, possibly. This is how serious they are."

Jones made a similar prediction last year, claiming without evidence that "the deep state establishment" was plotting to kill Trump. The conspiracy theorist envisioned a scenario in which "they poison [Trump] or they blow his airplane up" prior to securing the GOP nomination.

It was unclear whether Greene was claiming on Monday that Democrats had a specific plan to assassinate Trump in jail, or were hoping that he would be randomly killed by fellow prisoners without Secret Service protection.

Newsweek reached out for comment to the offices of Greene and Trump and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) via email on Monday night.

Greene is not alone in suggesting that Thompson's bill is designed to bring about Trump's demise. Alan Dershowitz, a former member of Trump's legal team, claimed during a Newsmax interview on Sunday that the bill "means they want him killed because he's obviously a target."

Dershowitz also predicted that Trump would never be sent to jail because New York State Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan, who is presiding over the New York criminal trial, would view a jail sentence as "a guaranteed victory" for Trump.

Thompson's bill, dubbed the Denying Infinite Security and Government Resources Allocated toward Convicted and Extremely Dishonorable Former Protectees Act—aka the DISGRACED Act—was introduced last week and co-sponsored by eight Democratic representatives.

A source at Thompson's office previously told Newsweek that the bill would apply to any convicted felon who would otherwise have Secret Service protection, adding: "Nobody should have special treatment, and that happens to include the former president."

Greene, who is well-known for a history of promoting conspiracy theories before launching her political career, made a similar claim about Democrats allegedly attempting to orchestrate Trump's death earlier this year.

The congresswoman claimed without evidence in February that President Joe Biden was attempting to put Trump "in prison for the rest of his life which would be a death sentence."

During a town hall meeting last year, Greene seemingly approved of a call to execute her political opponents for "treason." Prior to being elected to Congress in 2020, she accused then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of being "guilty of treason," noting that it is "a crime punishable by death."

Why wait until he's in prison?  Trump's lawyers are arguing right now in the SCOTUS that Biden should be able to murder him right in the middle of 5th Avenue.
