On Sunday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said it was "unfortunate" that Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) had leaked details of their heated exchange in the House chamber to the press.

I think it's terrible that Lauren Boebert went public with our private conversation. Greene said this during an interview with Fox News' Howard Kurtz for their show "MediaBuzz." "But once she leaked it out, I had to confirm that is, in fact, what I said," Greene said.

The Daily Beast was the first to report the argument between the two conservative lawmakers, citing two eyewitnesses and another source with knowledge of the situation. Later, when reporters asked Greene about the story, she confirmed that she had called Boebert a "little bitch" when the Colorado lawmaker tried to force a vote on Greene's impeachment resolution against President Biden. 

There is no proof that Boebert "leaked" the story because the sources in The Daily Beast article are anonymous. Neither lawmaker commented to the publication to refute the claims made.

As early as before Biden's inauguration, Greene advocated for the introduction of impeachment articles against the vice president. The day after he took office, she filed a resolution to impeach him.

Greene expressed her disappointment with Boebert, a Colorado congresswoman, because she had asked Boebert to back Greene's impeachment articles, which Greene had introduced in May for the 118th Congress, but Boebert had acted unilaterally without consulting other GOP members.

However, "here's the real issue, I've introduced articles of impeachment, and every time I do so, along with my other bills, I communicate with all of my Republican colleagues and ask for support by asking their co-sponsorship," Greene explained.

We need 218 votes to pass legislation on the House floor, so we'll have to cooperate. I asked her to co-sponsor my impeachment articles against Joe Biden on the border and she never got back to me, so I guess she didn't want to.

"Then, when she introduced her own and forced them to the floor with a privilege resolution - without even having the courage to talk to any other Republican in our conference before doing so except Speaker McCarthy and, apparently, a few others - yes, we had a tense conversation when she confronted me about things I had said about it," Greene continued.
