LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): And of course, this is being brought up now as, you know, Congresswoman Greene is, like, talking about martial law and she should never be able to run again. I'd like to have you, you know, have a chance to respond to those criticisms. 

REP. MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE (GUEST): Well, those are reportedly my text messages. I think if people read them for themselves, if those are my text message, they clearly say that I wasn't calling for that. I actually said that's something I don't know about. That was what those text messages say. Right now, there's a group --

INGRAHAM: So, you didn't advocate -- you never advocated martial law, that President Trump should use martial law to stop, you know, the transition of power. You never advocated for that, did you? 

GREENE: I don't recall ever advocating for martial law. I think -- I don't know if you have that up on the screen right now, because I can't see it, but if you put that text message up, it's clear and easy to read that, if that's my text messages and that's what they're reporting, I don't recall if they are. But if they are, those text messages do not say, calling for martial law, that it says, I don't know about that.

INGRAHAM: No, yeah. It just says -- now, I thought it was kind of an unfair hit on you because you said, several members were, and then they used that to say, you were, and I just wanted to give you the chance to tell us one way or another whether you thought that President Trump, you know, asking for martial law would be a good idea. I mean, I just thought you needed a chance to clear that up.
