GOP Rep. Uses Dem Standards To Kick Ilhan Omar Off Committee

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

"I'd like to see her be a productive member of Congress", the person said before adding: "I don't know if that is possible".

Republican members are losing patience with Rep. Kevin McCarthy's lack of action on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. "Paid to do what he did and keep his mouth shut" in response to a comment referring to the pension as a "kick back for going along the evil plan". The ad accuses the Republican lawmakers of standing "with Q, not you", referencing the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory supported by Greene.

The backlash to that vote was immediate: many in the party called for her removal from leadership.

The announcement by No. 2 House Democrat Steny Hoyer of Maryland came Wednesday as showdowns approached over Greene and Rep. Liz Cheney, who've antagonized opposing wings of a Republican Party struggling to define itself without Donald Trump in the White House. McConnell is right to call her out and to finally state the obvious truth that his party is diseased by insane beliefs.

If the resolution passes, it would remove the Georgia Republican from her seats on the Budget Committee and the Education and Labor Committee.

Greene has made or endorsed comments on social media about using violence against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, suggesting the plane attack at the World Trade Center didn't happen and that mass school killings were staged.

Gaetz argued both of these decisions "reinforce the power of Washington", and are disrespectful if the almost 75% of Georgians who voted Greene into office.

The Democratic-run House Rules Committee was meeting Wednesday in an initial step toward removing Greene from her committees, a rare step for Congress.

Democratic leaders in the House are set to hold a vote Thursday on whether Republican newcomer Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene should be removed from her two committee assignments. Even during the effort to punish her, she has lashed out at Democrats and raised money on the controversy.

"Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country", McConnell said in a statement.

Ten House Republicans voted with Democrats January 13 to impeach Trump for inciting the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last month.

"It's important for us to separate ourselves from the people that are in the wacky weeds, and if we don't, then our opposition tries to brand us with their image and with their point of view", he said.

Which means that, nearly certainly, the fate of Greene's committee service will be left to the Democratic House majority - taking McCarthy entirely (or mostly) out of the picture. McCarthy has said he supports Cheney but also has "concerns", leaving his stance on her unclear.

McCarthy has always been close to Trump.

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

A conviction of Trump in the Senate trial is unlikely since 17 Republicans in the chamber would need to vote along with all 50 Democrats to reach the two-thirds majority needed. 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. Democrats have tagged him as 'Trump's errand boy'.
