Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican nominee for Georgia's 14th Congressional District, said in a tweet on Tuesday that President Trump has invited her to the White House to attend his acceptance speech on Thursday evening.

Why it matters: Greene has repeatedly made offensive remarks about Black people, Jews and Muslims in Facebook videos, and she has publicly supported the QAnon movement and other far-right conspiracy theories.

Context: QAnon purports, without proof, that posts by an anonymous internet user, who they believe works for the federal government, are alluding to a secret war that a cabal of pedophiles and cannibals is waging against President Trump.

  • The FBI flagged internet conspiracy theories like QAnon as potential domestic terrorist threats in 2019.
  • Greene told Fox News last week that her QAnon-supporting videos no longer represent her and that "once I started finding misinformation, I decided that I would choose another path."

What she's saying: "I’m honored and thrilled to be invited to attend President Trump’s acceptance speech Thursday evening at the White House," Greene tweeted. "I’m also equally excited to vote for him again November 3rd, and I’m working hard all over Georgia to help him win."

  • The White House and the Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comments.
A tweet previously embedded here has been deleted or was tweeted from an account that has been suspended or deleted.

House Republican leaders, including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, criticized Greene after Facebook videos surfaced of her claiming that Black people "are held slaves to the Democratic Party." McCarthy has since said she will be welcomed into the GOP conference if she wins in November.

  • Greene has also said she believes Muslims should not serve in government, called George Soros a Nazi and claimed that the 2017 Las Vegas shooting was a targeted operation to help pass "anti-gun legislation." Soros is a Holocaust survivor.
  • In 2017 blog posts, Greene speculated that the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was an "inside job," and she promoted "Pizzagate," a baseless conspiracy alleging that some Democratic Party leaders are running a human-trafficking and pedophilia ring, according to CNN.

The big picture: Trump congratulated Greene in early August for winning the Republican nomination for Georgia's 14th district, calling her a "future Republican star." She is likely to win a seat in the House in November's general election.

  • President Trump claimed at a press conference last week that he does not know a lot about QAnon, but that he understands its supporters "like me very much" and that they "love America."
  • On Tuesday, a pair of bipartisan lawmakers introduced a House resolution to condemn QAnon.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell circulated a new framework for coronavirus stimulus legislation to Republican members on Tuesday that would establish a fresh round of funding for the small-business Paycheck Protection Program and implement widespread liability protections, according to a copy of the draft proposal obtained by Axios.

Driving the news: The revised GOP relief plan comes after McConnell's meeting with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, during which they went over in detail what provisions would get backing from President Trump.

DOJ pressed to enforce Al Jazeera foreign agent ruling

The Justice Department is being pressed to enforce its own demand that the U.S. arm of Qatari broadcaster Al Jazeera register as a foreign agent.

Why it matters: The launch of Al Jazeera's new right-of-center U.S. media venture, Rightly, has refocused attention on the media company's alleged links to Doha, and DOJ's efforts to crack down on media outlets viewed as foreign interest mouthpieces.
