Marjorie Taylor Greene Forces Vote on Ousting Mike Johnson as House Speaker

·1 min

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, has initiated a vote to remove Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana. Despite opposition from other congressional Republicans and former President Donald Trump, Greene’s effort is expected to fail. Democratic leaders have pledged to support Johnson in blocking the motion, citing his decision to allow a successful vote on funding Ukraine in its war against Russia. House Republican leaders have two days to schedule the vote on the privileged motion.
