Marjorie Taylor Greene: Congresswoman faces threat of expulsion

Marjorie Taylor Greene: Congresswoman faces threat of expulsion”

This isn't about telling them what to do but a question about what I think right and wrong, and this is about Marjorie Taylor Greene, who, as you know, believes the risky QAnon conspiracy theories.

Greene, a freshman congresswoman, has a long record of making incendiary remarks ranging from allegedly supporting violence against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats, to spreading baseless claims that mass school shootings were staged. The aide declined to provide more details of their private conversation.

After calling out Greene and saying "it's clear and documented what she has said", Keilar picked up on Schulman saying Greene needs to come forward publicly to denounce all this crap.

During the Cold Open on Saturday (January 30), Cecily Strong impersonated Marjorie to discuss her stance on QAnon conspiracy theories, which she often promotes.

Schulman said that while she "really wanted" to trust Greene, she thought she couldn't.

"When we started our conversation, I was totally frank and told Congresswoman Greene that I was going to be on MSNBC today", Schulman said.

Asked if Greene, who has been appointed to the House Education and Labor Committee, should she be stripped of her committee assignments, Portman said the move could "send a message".

"Reducing the future harm that she can cause in Congress, and denying her a seat at committee tables where fact-based policies will be drafted, is both a suitable punishment and a proper restraint of her influence", Wasserman Schultz said. Pelosi said of Republican leaders. But she said Republicans' reluctance to take action left Democrats with little choice.

In addition, California Democrat Jimmy Gomez now has 61 of his colleagues co-sponsoring a longshot resolution to expel Mrs Greene from Congress itself, accusing her of "extremism". "The House has to be able to take actions to police its own membership".

Greene's views were in the spotlight even before she joined the House last month. Some of the backlash is over now-deleted comments she made on Facebook in 2018, supporting a claim that the Parkland massacre was a "false flag" event that didn't really happen.

A two-thirds vote in the House would be required to remove her, which is a high threshold.

In a tweet over the weekend, Greene sounded a defiant tone. "And they absolutely hate it".

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. "And her failure tells me that for Congresswoman Greene, politics trumps truth, because lies and conspiracy theories are more important to her than honesty".
