Lawyers for voters seeking to use the 14th Amendment’s insurrectionist clause to block Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) return to Congress accused her of lying at a hearing last week and asked the judge to allow new evidence—a text she sent to ex-President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows.

Attorneys for Free Speech for People, an advocacy group, said in a brief filed Friday that the text proves Greene was dishonest when she testified she couldn’t recall advocating for Trump to invoke martial law after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on Capitol Hill.
