Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Intensifies Efforts to Remove House Speaker Amid Republican Party Tensions

Despite complaints that her move is “creating drama” in the Republican Party, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) stepped up her efforts to remove House Speaker Mike Johnson on Sunday.

Very far to the right House Republicans, including Greene, were getting more and more angry at Johnson for trying to bring a bunch of foreign aid bills to the floor of the chamber on Saturday. Lawmakers passed bills to give Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan extra money. Some Republican politicians have said that more money shouldn’t be given until Congress does something to stop people from crossing the border illegally between the U.S. and Mexico.

Greene talked about her motion to vacate against Johnson that she filed last month on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo. Republican Representatives Thomas Massie and Paul Gosar backed the motion, but it wasn’t privileged, which means it didn’t immediately lead to a House vote.

On Sunday, Bartiromo asked the representative why she didn’t re-file the motion to vacate to bring a House vote back after the foreign aid bills passed on Saturday. Greene replied, “I’ve been responsible with this the whole time.”

“I support our majority and I support having the majority in 2025,” said Greene. “However, I speak for the people…”People are sick of it.”

Bartiromo then asked Greene what she thought about people on both sides of the political spectrum saying that she was making the Republican Party “look like it’s disrupted” before the November general election. In 2020, former President Donald Trump is likely to run against President Joe Biden for a second term.

“Yes, you know what? A lot of people are criticizing you,” Bartiromo said. “And the reason that they are is because they’re saying that you’re creating drama during this election year.”

Greene said “Those that are calling this drama are the very people that are responsible for the drama that the American people are having to live through every single day.”

Those on the left, those on the right, and the one-party system that runs our government are the ones who put the American people in nearly $35 trillion in debt, tore their border open, and Speaker Johnson refuses to use his power as House speaker to negotiate in any way to secure the southern border and stop the chaos in our country.

“I don’t feel bad about standing firm in what I believe, my faith, and my unwavering loyalty to the United States of America.” Because of this, I am set in my ways, and I will fight harder for our country. It’s the Republican Party that needs to change.
