Speaker Johnson Drops BOMBSHELL on Rep. Greene

Several weeks ago, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced that she was going to file a motion to vacate against Speaker Johnson (R-LA).

She added that she would not force a vote on it just yet, wanting to fire a warning shot across Johnson’s bow and give him a chance to straighten out.

Johnson has continued business as usual, so Greene has announced that she will force the vote, but Johnson surprised her a bit.

Greene is tired of business as usual and Johnson not delivering on the promise to change the way business is done in Congress.

Her patience with Johnson has worn thin, stating, “We need leaders in the House of Representatives that are going to get this done. Mike Johnson is not capable of that job.”

Greene has the support of at least three other members of the House.

With the GOP’s thin margin, had every Democrat voted in support of her motion, Johnson would be gone, but that is not going to happen.

Democrat leadership has already announced that it will block the motion against Johnson once it hits the floor, which will only serve the purpose of proving Greene right regarding her charges of Congress now being a UniParty.

Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), Minority Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA), and Democratic Caucus Chairman Pete Aguilar (D-CA stated, “The time has come to turn the page on this chapter of Pro-Putin Republican obstruction.

“We will vote to table Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Motion to Vacate the Chair. If she invokes the motion, it will not succeed.”

Other members of the Democrat Party, such as Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) have also stated they will not vote in favor of the measure.

But with Jeffries making a stand, it is unlikely any more than a handful of Democrats will vote to remove Johnson.

That may save Johnson for now, but it will not bode well for him if the GOP keeps the House and Johnson runs for Speaker again.

And if the GOP loses the House, I think we can expect to see some wholesale changes in GOP leadership.
