Marjorie Taylor Greene says she's meeting with Trump 'soon' in Florida MORE, the Republican nominee in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, wrote incendiary blog posts as a “correspondent” for the now-defunct conspiracy news site “American Truth Seekers," according to web archives unearthed by NBC News.
In the blog posts, which go back to 2017, Greene promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory, which claims that government officials and celebrities are controlling the government to undermine President TrumpDonald TrumpOhio Republican who voted to impeach Trump says he won't seek reelection Youngkin breaks with Trump on whether Democrats will cheat in the Virginia governor's race Trump endorses challenger in Michigan AG race MORE and run a child sex-trafficking ring.The FBI has labeled the loosely-defined QAnon community a potential domestic terrorism threat.
In her posts, Greene promoted the "Clinton Kill List," a decades-old conspiracy theory that baselessly claims Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonAttorney indicted on charge of lying to FBI as part of Durham investigation Durham seeking indictment of lawyer with ties to Democrats: reports Paul Ryan researched narcissistic personality disorder after Trump win: book MORE is responsible for ordering assassinations.
According to other archives obtained by CNN, Greene also promoted "Pizzagate," a related conspiracy theory that claims Clinton and other top Democratic figures were running a child sex-trafficking ring beneath a pizza shop in Washington, D.C.
In December 2016, a man fired a gun in the Comet Ping Pong pizza shop, claiming he was there to “self-investigate” the Pizzagate conspiracy.
In a 2017 blog post, Greene said the deadly white supremacist rally held in Charlottesville, Va., that year was an "inside job" to "further the agenda of the elites."
Greene suggested that James Fields, the man who killed one woman and injured 19 other counter-protesters during the rally, may have done so by accident. Fields was later convicted of first-degree murder and nine other charges. He also pleaded guilty to 29 federal hate crimes.
"Whether this is true or not, it is beyond tragic that James Alex Fields Jr rammed his car into the crowd killing 1 and injuring 19 others. If it was intentional and premeditated, then he deserves to be held accountable. Yet if his reaction was out of fear and hitting the crowd was actually an accident, then that changes the narrative of what happened in Charlottesville this past weekend," Greene wrote.
In a lengthy Facebook post last year, Greene wrote that House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiOn The Money: Democrats get to the hard part Biden discusses agenda with Schumer, Pelosi ahead of pivotal week Stefanik in ad says Democrats want 'permanent election insurrection' MORE (D-Calif.) was guilty of treason and suggested she could be executed, CNN noted.

Greene, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment for this story, has attempted to distance herself from the theory, asserting her previous blog posts don’t represent her current views.
