GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has responded with additional information regarding the “swatting” incident early Wednesday morning at her home in Rome, Georgia.

In a Twitter post that contained a link to a local report about the incident, Greene quoted a police report regarding the incident, which is apparently still under investigation by the local police department.

Northwest Georgia News noted:

According to a Rome Police Department report, police officers responded to a 911 call on Wednesday at 01:03 a.m. that led them to initially believe a man who had been shot multiple times was in the bathtub at Greene’s home. The caller also stated there was a woman inside the home and possibly children with her. When officers arrived, Greene assured them there was no issue at the home.

“After we cleared the call and went back in service, Rome-Floyd 911 received a call from the suspect, claiming responsibility for the incident and explaining his/her motives,” said the police report, according to the local outlet. “It was a computer generated voice. They explained they were upset about Ms. Greene’s stance on ‘trans-gender youth’s rights,’ and stated they were trying to ‘swat’ her.”

In addition, the police report said that the caller claimed to be linked to a website that authorities say supports cyberstalking. The caller also gave officers their user name on the site, Northwest Georgia News added.

“There have been a couple of other “swatting” calls of this sort recently, said Floyd County Police Department Assistant Chief Tom Ewing, but this was the first at Greene’s residence. The other calls came from overseas numbers, Ewing said, and those numbers have been masked or rerouted through other numbers, a process called spoofing,” said the local news report.

In a Wednesday morning tweet, Greene — a staunch ally of former President Donald Trump — thanked local police while adding that she would provide additional information at a later date, according to the UK’s Daily Mail.

“Last night, I was swatted just after 1 am. I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County. More details to come,” she tweeted.

“This is insane and unacceptable. The people behind this need to be prosecuted and serve jail time,” former NYPD officer and broadcaster John Cardillo tweeted in response.

“Elderly parents of a friend of mine were swatted as a prank. They were required to come outside with their hands up while in their pajamas. It was very stressful for them. This stuff isn’t funny. It’s serious and those who engage in this should go to jail,” said another Twitter user.

In a statement to DailyMail.com, Greene’s office confirmed that a “political attack” on her took place at her home.

DailyMail.com added:

Greene has led GOP criticism of federal law enforcement in recent weeks ever since the FBI’s unannounced search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

In the early hours of August 8, the FBI executed a search warrant on the Palm Beach mansion in an operation linked to classified documents sought by the National Archives.

Trump’s allies like Greene and GOP Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik decried the raid as a weaponization of the Justice Department and have demanded consequences for Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

“Right now, Congresswoman Greene’s safety is our number one concern,” Greene’s spokesperson Nick Dyer said Wednesday. “Late last night, she was a victim of a political attack on her family and home. Whoever committed this violent crime will face the full extent of the law.”
