Ruben Gallego and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene got into a heated Twitter exchange on Tuesday, exposing the deep anger still roiling the ranks of Congress since the January 6 Capitol riot.</p><p>Gallego said the freshman Georgia Republican, who's embraced a host of far-right conspiracy theories, was aligned with the Capitol rioters after she called her Democratic colleagues "the enemy within" in <a href="https://twitter.com/mtgreenee/status/1388974656200249344">a tweet</a>.</p><p>"I was trying to figure what type of pen to stab your friends with if they overran us on the floor of the House of Representatives while trying to conduct a democratic transition of power," Gallego said.

Coward," she wrote.</p><p>Gallego then argued there were "many heroes" in the Capitol on January 6, but accused Greene of being one of the "many insurrectionist trying to destroy Democracy [sic]."</p><p>The Democrat ended the exchange by saying he didn't have time for a Twitter feud because he was too busy with legislative work, which he added Greene "wouldn't know about" because she was <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/house-strips-marjorie-taylor-greene-of-committee-assignments-2021-2">stripped of her committee assignments</a> just a month after being sworn in to office.</p><p>"I would tweet back and forth with you but I have 2 committee assignments and a bill of mine is being marked," he tweeted.
