We covered the remarks back in June of last year that CNN has recently re-discovered by going through Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Facebook page. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called out House GOP leaders for not doing more to rebuke Rep. Greene. Rep. Jimmy Gomez of California announced yesterday a resolution to expel her from Congress. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated through a spokesperson that he would have a conversation with her.
Reps. Austin Scott, Buddy Carter, Karen Handel, and Drew Ferguson endorsed her runoff opponent, Dr. John Cowan, in June due to her remarks. Rep. Handel was an outspoken critic of Rep. Greene since Greene announced her candidacy for Congress.
While numerous GAGOP elected officials and leaders called out Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for actually following the law and doing his job, there has been silence from current officials and leaders on Rep. Greene since CNN issued their recent report. Since they will not speak out, I will say that she needs to resign immediately from Congress. Her antics, including removing a reporter from her town hall, and words have demonstrated that she is not fit to hold the position of being a member of Congress.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi:
“Assigning her to the Education Committee when she has mocked the killing of little children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, when she has mocked the killing of teenagers in high school at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school — what could they be thinking? Or is thinking too generous a word for what they might be doing? It’s absolutely appalling, and I think the focus has to be on the Republican leadership of this House of Representatives for the disregard they have for the death of those children.”
Rep. Jimmy Gomez:
“As if it weren’t enough to amplify conspiracy theories that the September 11 attacks were an inside job and the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was staged, a string of recent media reports has now confirmed that Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene had previously supported social media posts calling for political violence against the Speaker of the House, members of Congress, and former President Barack Obama.
Such advocacy for extremism and sedition not only demands her immediate expulsion from Congress, but it also merits strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Her very presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and staff who serve our government, and it is with their safety in mind, as well as the security of institutions and public servants across our country, that I call on my House colleagues to support my resolution to immediately remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body.”
