Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene blasted the nearly 40 House Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wrote to House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday and asked him to address her 'dangerous' behavior.
She slammed them as 'communists' and mocked one of the Democratic lawmakers who signed the letter for having a transgender child.
'It's absurd Democrats accuse me of creating an environment of harassment for speaking at a Trump rally and defining them as who they are. Communists,' she said in a statement.

'I receive constant harassment in public caused by the Democrat lies promoted by the media,' she argued.
She claimed to be the victim of a 'witch hunt' and said she has done 'nothing wrong.'
The letter was spearheaded by Rep. Pramila Jayapal and said that she and her fellow lawmakers were concerned about 'dangerous, concerning, and unacceptable behavior' from the Georgia Republican.
'The Congresswoman’s harassment of her colleagues has reached an unacceptable level,' the letter states. 'We respectfully request that you work with her to address these issues and ensure that this type of behavior no longer continues.'
The letter comes after repeated incidents between Greene and Democratic lawmakers.
She and Ocasio-Cortez, in particular, have argued in the hallways of Congress and on the House floor. After a May confrontation on the House floor, where Greene verbally confronted Ocasio-Cortez and then followed her out to the hallway to continue yelling, the New York Democrat considered getting a restraining order against Greene.
The letter mentions that incident and several others, including Greene's behavior prompting Democrats to move Rep. Cori Bush's office away from her after the two lawmakers had a run-in in the hallway over mask wearing; and Green trolling her office neighbor, Rep. Marie Newman, with an anti-trans sign after Newman, whose daughter is transgender, displayed a trans flag in the hallway.
Greene responded to those charges in her statement Thursday, calling Newman 'Newperson' and claiming Bush 'lied to get a bigger office.'
Bush and Newman also signed the letter as did a diverse group of moderate and liberal Democrats.
