Democratic Rep. 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.

And Democrat funded BLM/Antifa riots have cost BILLIONS in damage.
Democrats are the enemy within.
