Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) sadly isn't the only member of Congress to express support for the QAnon conspiracy theory, which hinges on the delusion that a secret network of satanic cannibal pedophiles covertly controls the United States government, and that former President Donald Trump was sent to stop them.
Though lesser-known, freshman Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who owns the open-carry restaurant Shooters, has also amplified deranged far-right conspiracy theories as well.
Weeks after tweeting the locations of lawmakers during the Capitol Riots that left five people dead, Boebert appeared at a town hall where she was asked if there's any hope for "perp walks" from high-level officials like former Secretary of State and favorite Republican enemy Hillary Clinton.

Congresswoman Boebert Promotes QAnon Conspiracy: Predicts Resignations Based on Declassified Docs www.youtube.com
Citing anonymous sources, Boebert assured the questioner that she'd heard of a Trump administration official who told a far-right conspiracy outlet, the Epoch Times, that recently declassified documents would expose the wrongdoings of the so-called criminals in the Democratic party.
After a rambling diatribe, Boebert assured:
" I have very good sources to say this is really good information. Is it a hundred percent? I don't know. But it's really good information. ... And this is my opinion with that information that I have, I believe we will see resignations begin to take place. And I think we can take back the majority in the House and the Senate before 2022 when all of this is ended."
Boebert then cited an unnamed person at the Justice Department who is allegedly growing frustrated at its inaction on the imagined crimes.
For years, promoters of the QAnon conspiracy theory have absurdly vowed that Trump will expose the presumed crimes of Democratic lawmakers—crimes like eating babies, facilitating election fraud, and more—resulting in mass arrests and the cleansing of the U.S. government from the pedophiles controlling it.
These absurd beliefs have only gotten more ridiculous as the goal posts have moved, with some still insisting that Trump has a trick up his sleeve to retake office, despite Biden being President for more than 50 days now.
People found Boebert's deranged allusions to it concerning.

The Republican party's increasing embrace of far-right conspiracies offers little hope that lawmakers like House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will get their House in order.
So, a GOP member of Congress is predicting and endorsing violent conspiracy theories aimed at a coup d'etat. Kevin… https://t.co/EwWAUtF8SK— RationalLeft (@RationalLeft)1616181906.0

For the sake of our country, Trump needed to be impeached. The big lie and its liers all needed to be exposed. https://t.co/FQ1qLj8ZQB— Dee Hulot (@Dee Hulot)1616183817.0
Has the GOP found its new base?
