California Democrat Rep. Jimmy Gomez plans to introduce a resolution to expel pro-Trump Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress in relation to incendiary comments she made in the past.
In February, Democrats led a charge against the Republican to have her removed from two committee assignments. Ultimately, Democrats got their wish, and Greene was removed from the Education and Budget committees.
Fox News reports:
Greene blasted the Democrats’ effort to remove her from office. She likened it to the ongoing election challenge in Iowa, where the House is weighing whether to undo the victory for Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-Iowa, who won her race by just six votes.
“There is nothing more threatening to Democrats than strong Republican women!” Greene said in a statement to Fox News. “Democrats are trying [to] overturn the will of the American people who voted for both myself and Congresswoman Miller-Meeks. This is a continuation of the House Democrats’ war on women!”
Gomez is authoring a “privileged” resolution, which means it could come up for a vote at any time. But he’d need GOP support to remove Greene since a two-thirds supermajority is required to expel a member of Congress.
The latest attempt to cancel Rep. Greene comes as no surprise as Speaker Pelosi has even encouraged fellow Democrats to overturn the Iowa state-certified election in favor of Democrat Rita Hart. It seems Democrats have resorted to dirty tricks in their pathetic attempt to increase their majority in the lower chamber.
