Dems Push for Greene’s Removal from House Committees

Democrat election on textured American flag-Greene’s Removal-ss-featured

House Democrats are moving for a vote Thursday for Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s removal from House committees. This came after the House Republican leadership met with the embattled neophyte representative but didn’t do anything further. Instead, the GOP House leadership attacked Democrats for trying to interfere.

Dems Call For Greene’s Removal 

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (MD) said that the House would vote Thursday on whether to relieve Greene of her committee assignments. Hoyer said that the decision resulted from Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s failure to take action against her. “I spoke to Leader McCarthy this morning, and it is clear there is no alternative to holding a Floor vote on the resolution to remove Rep. Greene from her committee assignments. The Rules Committee will meet this afternoon, and the House will vote on the resolution tomorrow,” Hoyer tweeted. Meanwhile, House Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries (NY) wanted the GOP to handle it. The best thing about this issue is that “Kevin McCarthy should handle this problem,” Jeffries said.

Republicans sent a last-minute offer to the Dems to call off the floor vote. They proposed giving Greene an alternative form of punishment if the majority would remove the vote from the agenda. McCarthy proposed removing Greene from the House Education Committee and moving her to the Small Business panel. However, Greene will retain her membership on the House Budget Committee. Hoyer immediately rejected the proposal. He said that the House will vote for Greene’s removal from all her committees. 

Partisan Power Grab

Instead, McCarthy put out a statement accusing House Democrats of attempting a “partisan power grab” by wanting to discipline Greene. “I understand that Marjorie’s comments have caused deep wounds to many and as a result, I offered Majority Leader Hoyer a path to lower the temperature and address these concerns. Instead of coming together to do that, the Democrats are choosing to raise the temperature by taking the unprecedented step to further their partisan power grab regarding the committee assignments of the other party,” McCarthy said. 

In addition, the House Minority Leader said that he already spoke with Greene. He made it clear that as a member of the House, she needs to hold herself to a higher standard. He said that Greene understood the newfound expectations for her as Georgia representative. “Her past comments now have much greater meaning. Marjorie recognized this in our conversation. I hold her to her word, as well as her actions going forward,” he said. 

Greene Under Fire

Hoyer countered that they had no choice remaining as the GOP didn’t address Greene’s comments. “She has placed many members in fear for their welfare. And she has attacked and made incendiary remarks prior to but also during her term as a member of Congress,” Hoyer told reporters Wednesday. He added that they believe Green gave comfort to “those who led an insurrection” at the Capitol last January 6.

Greene got nationwide attention when her previous social media activities and comments came back to haunt her. Among her many quotable remarks are posts calling for violence among prominent Democrats. This includes a speech where she said Pelosi is guilty of treason, which is punishable by death. Greene also made earlier posts that claim the Parkland and Sandy Hook school shootings were hoaxes. In a video, she confronted a Parkland survivor, David Hogg, and asked how he managed to get media coverage. She also called him a “coward,” and said he’s an agent of an anti-gun figure. In addition, Green also made previous remarks with racist, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic views. Also, she promoted QAnon conspiracy theories and massive election fraud last November. 

Meeting with McCarthy 

Late Tuesday, McCarthy met with Greene ahead of a GOP Steering Committee schedule. During the meeting, McCarthy asked Greene to voluntarily depart the Education Committee or apologize for her previous statements, a source reported. Greene refused to do either. Afterward, the Steering Committee didn’t arrive at a decision on what to do next. It was then that Hoyer told McCarthy what the House Democrats will do the next day. 

McCarthy made similar remarks to Republicans privately, insisting he doesn’t want a floor vote for Greene. This can create a precedent where Democrats would come after others for past controversial statements otherwise. If the floor vote happens, Republicans will have to go on record against a Donald Trump supporter that many do not like. In fact, GOP members of the Rules Committee already denounced Greene’s past comments.

Rules Committee Wants Her Gone

Meanwhile, the House Rules Committee Chair Jim McGovern (D-MA) said Greene should resign. “I don’t think she’s fit to serve in this institution,” he said. Removing her committee assignments is “the minimum,” McGovern added. Plus, the fact that Greene has yet to apologize for her remarks, means that “She’s doubled down on it. She’s fundraising off this stuff,” McGovern said.

    Turn-a-bout is fair play. There are a number of Democrats that need to be removed too.

  • Pete says:

    When the Dems take action on Maxine Waters statement then they can talk about the republicans.

  • Robert the Scot says:

    Greene is a beginner & while she may naturally have the rough edges that we’d expect to see from any novice, congressional rep or otherwise, her heart & head are in the right face! The Demonrats doing all in their ill-gotten power to destroy any & all opposition to their laying the country low! I don’t give a damn how sloppily she goes about it! I wish we had a thousand Marjorie Greenes! While we’re wishing, how about 1 less Lez Chaney?!

    You democrat politicians are the cause of all hate in this country, heaven forbid someone disagrees with your idiology. I think you house, senate, and presidents and I mean two cause everyone knows Biden is not running this country alone, should all go to anger management. And then get a job you know how to do.

  • Robert the Scot says:

    Remember: When you’re Greene, you’re growing!

    you’re rotten!
    Who’s more rotten than you LezC?

  • Steve Anderson says:

    The radical left is ruining our nation. Trying to take all of our freedoms. 75 million people are fed up with their lies and coverups. Some Republicans we thought we trusted have had their spine removed and pumped full of chicken shit.

  • Elaine says:

    These next four years are going to be a true shit fest.
    Well I think we all agree these outspoken democratic rats are a great problem, I don’t believe a republican party has actually been much better. It is time now for all American citizens to remind the politicians who they truly work for. Unfortunately our nation is full of a bunch of standbys, who like their handouts and who are happy to be patted on the head by these politicians and told they’re all good little girls and boys. As I see it that is the only solution to this problem is if the American citizens remind these damn politicians who their boss really is and that is us the American people.

    The Democrats have ben stacking the Second Amendment to the BILL OF RIGHTS for the last one hundred years . Their attacks are stealth attacks ; “Gun Safety , against Gun Violence , Mothers for Gun Education ,Safe Cities , BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. Having put the Second Amendment on the ropes , they now feel comfortable attacking the FIRST AMENDMENT, only PC (Politically Correct ) speech is allowed .
    If you follow the news , there are many vile democrats who make incendiary statements . let the Democrats clean their own house FIRST.

  • Evert shepherd says:

    My personal opinion is we need more in Congress like Marjorie green. It takes guts to stand up and be counted, maybe it’s time for more of our elected officials to be like Marjorie. I’ve been on this planet 76 years and in my lifetime the disrespect that elected officials have for our Constitution and country is against everything this country was founded on. Let it be known that we pay your wages, and if you like the way your bread is buttered you better get it right .

  • Jim Houston says:

    The Democrats are again going ballistic over what a Republican is doing. She was elected to represent the people in her district in Georgia and that is exactly what she is doing. If Maxine Waters can get away with all the BS she screams every day, then what Rep. Green is saying is nothing. And then there is Speaker Pelosi tearing up the State of the Union address in front of the country. That is about as childish as I have seen from the democrats. She should be run out on a rail. And you are worried about a new congresswoman? Wake up and do your job and quit “playing politics” with the country like a bunch of two-year-olds. Do some real work for a change!

  • Branden Oconnell says:

    More biased fake news from republicans maybe one day they will realize there crazy nonsense is killing America these confederate losers need to wake up from their conspiracy filled dreams and start trying to compromise and stop being unpatriotic and trying to tear the country apart

  • Gamecock/gc says:

    I do agree with the idea of getting rid of every damn one of them in congress but you have to remember that AOC and her squad were re-elected so the people in their districts must approve of them and the job they are doing.(hard to believe that shit). Just like Rep. Greene was elected with the voters knowing her past statements and actions. They must have approved. So if removing everyone from congress was possible there are plenty of idiots that will be voted back in.This socialist movement will not survive, no way! True socialism always fails, always. But that said every country has socialist tendencies, for when the government has programs that give to its citizens programs services money that is taken from the whole that is a form of socialism. The problem now is elected leaders social media news organizations and individuals like Soros show are inflaming the differences of everyday people to the point of violence. Pelosi is a traitor! She has done everything possible to divide our country. I am am a moderate republican from South Carolina, yeah white too. So I must be a racist huh? At least that’s what I am told by the progressives.People from the Midwest look at things differently then we southerners as do people from Utah or New England. That is how it is suppose to be but there are forces in this country that want to sow the seeds of contempt, hatred. They must not succeed and we as ordinary citizens must stand together and not allow it.Do not forget that we are all, Republican, Democrats,libertarians, black, white,red,yellow all of us are Americans. We must remember that we live, are part of the greatest country that this world has ever seen!I never thought that I would see us ready for open conflict but if our so called leaders don’t stop their divisiveness then that is a possibily

  • 2WarAbnVet says:

    Switch Greene with AOC or Omar – the Dems would be circling the wagons in her support, and she would become a media darling. It’s all politics.

  • Honest says:

    Biden and His Entire “CRIME FAMILY” which includes All Demo~Rats need to clean their own Dumps BEFORE trying to clean someone else House ~ What about Ice Cream Nancys Buying a million dollars worth of stock, and next day it skyrockets!!!! Sounds like insider” traitors”crap, but DOJ will protect em just like HILLARY~ BS!!!!

  • Laurie says:

    The Democrats talk about removing Republicans and say they are not fit to hold office then the same should be said about the Democrats for they have cheated, stolen, lied and have done the same thing to President Donald Trump with bashing him. Why should anyone have to apologize for speaking the truth? What about the Democrats threaten the judges if they didn’t do what they wanted? Or when they said that there would be a lot more riots if Joe Biden didn’t win. Then they had to cheat to win and they are silencing and banning those who have evidence in the fraud. Shame on them. They are not for the American people the are for their own agenda. As with having jobs taken away from the Americans here in the US. Nancy should be in prison for her crimes along with Obama and Hillary and where are they? Not where they should be. They should have been brought to justice. I really feel for them come judgement day. They think they can get away with this but God knows and they will one day have to answer for all their crimes.

  • Bob says:

    The Left should cease and desist on their Communist treats and made-up Left policies that the KOTEX CLUB (Hitler Pelosi, Horse Face AOC, Maxi-pad Waters, Pocahontas Warren, Incest Rag Head Omar, Racist Pressley, Cum Alot Harris, Al Queda Tlaib, Crazy Hirono, ISIS in U.S. Army Gabbard ) have implemented. They should rather reflect on the reason and the purpose that they were put in office. HINT: It’s not about Guns, Religion or trying to find which gender you are. It’s about serving ALL AMERICANS regardless of what they say or think. That’s the ROOT of our FREEDOM of speech. The KOTEX CLUB has lost sight of their purpose and turned our Government into a Puppet Show as they pull the strings on “BIDEN THE WASHINGTON PINOCCHIO”. That nose is getting longer by the day!!! God have mercy on our souls!

  • Chas says:

    Sounds like the Dems need to clean up there own house first, before trying to clean up someome else’s! This is so very tipical of there new left wing party. This will be a very long battle to rid the mice from there ugly dark nests, but good will prevail over evil, from the path the new left party is trying to lead many Americans down. Hang in there true Patriot. America is worth fighting for!

  • Catherine says:

Republicans do the job your people are paying you to do . Senators and Congress men and women are paid to do as their people tell them to!!!!God and our fore fathers made America a country with a constitution made with God guiding them and we need to get rid of any Republican that does not vote as the constitution says to do. Can’t you see that they are trying to split the Republican party? Quit doing what the Demorats want from you and do What you KNOW GOD and YOUR VOTERS WANT. America is a FREE Country and we do not want their socialism Crap , Wake up and fight for what our fore fathers died for and our young men and women have also given their all for , FREEDOM GOD BLESS AMERICAN AGAIN > NOW get busy with fixing the mess the cheaters on the election left us!!!!!!!

  • Jo denney says:

    Joe Biden and the Democrats are not for American people. And to say they are going to go after Trump supporters is a threat, and they should be punished for their actions. All they are doing is making people mad as hell. If we threaten them we would be in trouble. Fuck them come after me and you wont like what you get bitches. Karma will get you all.

  • Claudia Hardin says:

    She was voted in should be allowed to do her job. Democrats want to stop anyone who doesn’t agree with their agenda. We need to preserve our Constitution and they need to back off

  • Anna Rutigliano says:

    She should not have been removed. She has the right to her opinion just as the democrats do. This is so unamerican Should never happen. Just because you do not agree with the agenda, does not give you the right to remove an elected official for same. Unpatriotic
