Marjorie Taylor Greene: House Republicans resist pressure to oust lawmaker

Take a step back to consider what this says about today's Republican Party: Cheney is blackballed for doing what she believes is the right thing, yet Greene receives her committee assignments, her embrace of truly unsafe ideas notwithstanding.

Mr McCarthy, a California representative, said Mrs Greene's comments had caused "deep wounds to many".

Republicans had appointed Greene to the Education and Labor Committee, a decision that drew especially harsh criticism because of her suggestions that school shootings in CT and Florida could be hoaxes.

A number of House Republicans gave Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican and avid conspiracy theorist, a standing ovation after addressing her colleagues during a Wednesday evening caucus meeting to discuss her imminent removal from two House committees, Punchbowl News and other outlets reported.

The House of Representatives is heading toward a showdown on Thursday over the fate of Marjorie Taylor Greene, the freshman congresswoman with a penchant for trafficking in weird right-wing conspiracy theories.

Democrats have set up a House vote Thursday to remove Greene from her committee assignments because of a series of controversial past statements by the first-term lawmaker, who has questioned whether school shootings were faked and supported calls for violence against Pelosi and other Democratic officials.

House Republicans seek to oust Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a member of the so-called "Squad". She approves violence against Democrats and claims Donald Trump won the election.

Overnight, she said, she raised $160,000.

Senate Republican Leader Blasts Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's “Loony Lies and Conspiracy Theories”

Greene was showing little sign of backing down.

What about the upcoming Senate impeachment trial? .

McConnell hadn't indicated how he would vote after the trial, potentially giving cover to members in his conference more inclined to vote to convict.

"We've got millions and millions of woke, motivated, America-first Trump voters that believe in the movement", said John Fredericks, who led Trump's Virginia campaigns in 2016 and 2020.

But an effort by Kentucky GOPSen. And/but he needs the support of the Trump wing - as represented by Greene - in order to wind up as speaker, and not face a challenge from the likes of Rep. Jim Jordan of OH or some other Trumpy Republican member. But the main damage she's doing is to the Republican Party and to her district.

While some senators have argued their vote on Paul's motion doesn't necessarily equate to their vote after the trial, the tea leaves seem clear: The Senate won't convict Trump.

Greene is a continuation of the four-year abasement that Trump inflicted on this country, and her cheerleading for Trump's Big Lie of a stolen election is all the more intolerable in light of the deadly Capitol riot.

He thinks Republicans will stick with Trump for the foreseeable future to win votes during their primaries, even if it costs national influence. Democrats have tagged him as 'Trump's errand boy'.
