House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has said that he plans to have "a conversation" with the lawmaker. "Somebody who's suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.'s airplane is not living in reality", McConnell said in a short statement Monday night that doesn't not directly cite her by name.
If passed by the House, Resolution 72 would effectively remove Greene from her seats on both the House Education & Labor Committee and the House Budget Committee.
"The real cancer for the Republican Party is weak Republicans who only know how to lose gracefully", the Georgia Republican wrote. "But we are prepared to do so if necessary", Hoyer said in a comment emailed to Reuters.
Democrats' willingness to act against a member of the opposing party underscores their desire to confront far-right politicians, like Greene, who are closely aligned with some of former President Donald Trump's fringe supporters, including extremist groups that were involved in the violent Capitol insurrection. "They're gonna give her every opportunity to speak and be heard and look insane - like what came out Wednesday, the Jewish space laser to start fires".
Democrats have been colluding to remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) from her committee assignments. "And her failure tells me that for Congresswoman Greene, politics trumps truth, because lies and conspiracy theories are more important to her than honesty".
Greene recently came under fire over social media remarks she made in the past few years, including claims the mass shootings at schools in Newtown, Connecticut, and Parkland, Florida, were "false flag" operations, and the 2018 California wildfires were caused by "Jewish space lasers".
Top House Democrats support the idea.
But after she won her primary, they largely accepted her. A spokesperson for the Republican leader declined to comment on Monday.
"We can't stop her from speaking", Wasserman Schultz said in an online news conference with two other Democrats, Representative Ted Deutch and Representative Jahana Hayes.
