On Thursday evening, Greene held a town hall for her Georgia constituents, where she vented about how her fellow Republicans are not moving fast enough on getting an impeachment inquiry going.

But that isn't her only grievance, as laid out a list of demands for Congress to meet, or else she will no longer "vote to fund the government."

For starters, the MAGA MVP wants to see "the Biden regime's weaponized government" that has hit former president Donald Trump with 91 criminal charges in four indictments – essentially law enforcement – be defunded.

Next, MTG demands the elimination of any Covid mask or vaccine mandates, arguing that "Biden even declared that is over." Covid cases, along with hospitalizations have been on a steep rise over the past few weeks.

And finally, the congresswoman is calling for all funding being sent to help Ukraine as they fend off a brutal invasion by Russia be cut off because "we have to have peace."

A White House spokesperson responded to MTG's comments, stating "The last thing the American people deserve is for extreme House members to trigger a government shutdown that hurts our economy, undermines our disaster preparedness, and forces our troops to work without guaranteed pay."
