Marjorie Taylor Greene Fails In Bid To Remove Johnson

Marjorie Taylor Greene Fails In Bid To Remove Johnson

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene failed again in her quest to remove Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), when the House voted 359-43 on Wednesday.

Ten Republicans and 32 Democrats supported Greene’s motion to vacate, but 196 Republicans and 163 Democrats quickly killed it.

Greene, who had threatened to oust Johnson since he allowed the House to fund Ukraine’s defense, read a list of his “transgressions” and called his leadership “pathetic, weak and unacceptable.”

In response, Johnson said he appreciated the “show of confidence from my colleagues to defeat this misguided effort.” 

Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) said his party’s decision to stop Greene “from plunging the country into further chaos is rooted in our commitment to solve problems,” not a love for Johnson.

On Thursday, Ms Greene posted on X, formerly Twitter: “Democrats voted to save Johnson because they knew it was impossible to take control of the House.

“They want to keep Johnson because he’s given them everything they want… The good news this morning is now the American people have been shown the truth.”

Only two other Republican members of Congress supported Ms Greene’s motion: Thomas Massie and Paul Gosar.

Joined by Mr. Massie, Ms. Greene stood on the House floor and criticized Mr. Johnson for a series of compromises he has struck with Democrats, who hold a majority in the Senate.

“This is the ‘uniparty’ for the American people watching,” she said of politicians in the chamber as they booed her.

“By passing the Democrats’ agenda and handcuffing the Republicans’ ability and influence legislation, our elected Republican Speaker Mike Johnson has aided and abetted the Democrats and the Biden administration in destroying our country,” she added.

“I absolutely love Marjorie Taylor Greene,” former President Donald Trump said on social media after the vote, but Johnson is a “good man who is trying very hard” and Republicans are “not in a position of voting on a motion to vacate. At some point, we may very well be, but this is not the time.”
