Dems to deliver GOP ultimatum over Marjorie Taylor Greene

Top House Democrats are moving to force Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene off multiple committees this week — with or without Kevin McCarthy’s help.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has delivered an ultimatum to McCarthy: Either Republicans move on their own to strip Greene (R-Ga.) of her committee assignments within 72 hours, or Democrats will bring the issue to the House floor.

The Democrats’ move comes amid intense fury within the Democratic Caucus over Greene’s long record of incendiary rhetoric, including peddling conspiracy theories that the nation’s deadliest mass shootings were staged. Greene also endorsed violence against Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats before she was elected to Congress.

Last week, Greene was officially awarded seats on the House Education and Labor Committee and the House Budget Committee.

18. It takes a 2/3 majority to expel a House member

And I doubt that the Repubs could muster that many votes against her. Only 10 voted yes on the impeachment, remember.

They can, with a simple majority, (I believe) strip of her committee assignments though.

24. That is where I am

Let her ruin things for her constituents and don't let her do anything except look like a complete moron. Always remind the entire country where she came from and every single time she is a racist, conspiracy-minded rethug with the intelligence of an amoeba. Remind the country that her own party is both complacent and scared of her. Then, let her do the rest. She really does strike me as the 'go down kicking and screaming' type and anytime we can show the world just how self absorbed and dangerous someone like her is, the better we will all be.

Qapla'!

Who knows if she was involved in the 6th, but Id hate to have dangerous individuals, staff or visitor, wandering the halls without any observation.

Maybe this experience will dull the district's appetite for GOP politicians, but I would sure not bet on it.

12. I think that the time should be less than 72 hours, but it's good that they give them time as it

shows Democrats doing due diligence in process and we all know how the GOP and the media LOVE process when Democrats are in control.

11. Anti Semitic poison is now the GOP drug of choice

“In the post, which has now been deleted, Greene implied that the Rothschilds, a wealthy Jewish banking family frequently referred to in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric), space solar power company Solaren, and California officials all had a hand in profiting from the fires.”

Fumigate the House before the cockroaches take over. A stitch in time saves nine. And on and on.

There’s lots and lots of proverbs, platitudes and metaphors that apply to this.

16. I wonder if either of the two committees that she is on have met since the new Congress has....

.....opened it's current session. I have a perverse wish that she be allowed to make a fool of herself at one of their hearings, just to see her repub colleagues squirm and (maybe) try to cover for her.

not just lose committee assignments. People are too scared to admit the GOP supports terrorism because she's a blonde white woman.

26. So what happens to a congressperson who has no committee assignments?

Do they just show up and vote when the full House is in session and then spend the rest of their time fundraising?

I don't know how this all works.

32. Duncan Hunter was stripped of his committee assignments after he was indicted.

He basically did nothing except vote on floor measures for months until he finally pleaded guilty and resigned.

Even Republicans voted to strip him of his committee seats and that was only about 2 years ago, when Dems were in control.

The procedure began with going to the House Ethics Committee, which is what should happen now.

That she'll doom them in '22. Dems need to fund raise off her and make her the entire GOPee.

29. There's no way this Sandy Hook truther can serve on the Education Committee,

as it would be an insult to all of those families who lost loved ones in these massacres. Dems must move forcefully ahead and strip her if McCarthy won't do it. It's an unprecedented move but thoroughly justified. In order to defeat Trumpism we must enforce democratic norms and basic decency. If we fail to do this we become the proverbial frog boiling slowly in the pot until it's too late to jump out.

34. The 72 hour ultimatum is brilliant - gives plenty of exposure to the issue. Dems are finally

learning it's just as important how you frame and publicize the issue as the issue itself. Just an opinion.

33. Republicans have simply forgotten how to govern.


Perhaps in part to their staying overly busy with investigations of Dems and partly due to them letting corporations write their legislation for them when they were in power.

I sense some schadenfreude with them being in such a big mess but it's really not good for our country, in the short or long term.

Most obvious is that Democracy is a threat to white supremacy.
