GOP Divisions In Full Display Over Fates Of Reps. Cheney, Greene

GOP Divisions In Full Display Over Fates Of Reps. Cheney, Greene

House Republicans gathered to discuss both Greene and Rep. Liz Cheney, a top Republican under fire for voting to impeach former President Donald Trump last month. She also boasted of raising over $100,000 on Wednesday amid the backlash.

Trump's most ardent supporters in the House waged a weekslong campaign to oust Cheney from her post, arguing that she didn't represent the GOP conference with her vote.

"The things that she has allegedly said are years old and yet she was still elected and the Democrats seeded her knowing that all these things were there", Hice said.

US Republicans in Congress have come under increasing pressure to take action against Marjorie Taylor Greene, a lawmaker who supported calls for violence against Democrats and unfounded conspiracy theories before taking office last month. If the Democratic majority denies Greene her GOP committee assignments contrary to the will of her party, that could invite future majorities to do the same thing to minority lawmakers for less substantive reasons.

David Corn at Mother Jones broke the story on Wednesday that Greene moderated a whole Facebook group characterized by racist slurs and death threats.

During Wednesday's rules hearing on Greene, ranking member Tom Cole, R-Okla., distanced himself from Greene but said the issue of kicking her off of committees should be adjudicated by the House Ethics Committee.

"We should have nothing to do with Marjorie Taylor Greene". "These are people who we can't take serious [sic]".

Greene was applauded by colleagues for expressing regret for some but not all of her most outrageous comments made on social media - including questioning the 9/11 attacks and blaming a space ray directed by a Jewish cabal for a deadly wildfire.

McCarthy also, despite denouncing the QAnon conspiracy theory in recent weeks and its major role in the Capitol insurrection, denied knowing what it is in a truly unconvincing lie.

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell branded her a "cancer" on the party while other Republicans have called her a kook.

Republicans appointed Greene to the education committee, a decision that drew harsh criticism because of her suggestions that school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, and Parkland, Florida, could be hoaxes. Asked about reports that he "unleashed hell" on McCarthy for spending more time defending Greene than Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney during the meeting, Kinzinger wouldn't go into details but said, "Was I disappointed in the level of defense of her?" She has also not publicly apologized for her posts on social media and recently maintained on Twitter that she "will never apologize". But CNN says she has bad opinions.

A spokesperson from her office said: "The support from NW Georgia and across the entire country has been overwhelming".

Democrats are the majority party in the House, which is expected to vote on the resolution on Thursday.

HOUSE REPUBLICAN HAVE said they will stand by controversial congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and will fight a Democratic push to remove her from a number of committees.

The Senate plans to begin its impeachment trial of Trump next week. That's because this conference is more united. Earlier this week, Greene said she had spoken with Trump and had his continuing support.

But an effort by Kentucky GOPSen.

"Republicans always act as if they're the party of decency and respect".

Republicans leave it to Democrats to boot Trump 'star.

Seems kind of hard to argue with, doesn't it?

There are certainly political calculations at play here as well.

"The only way we will ever know is to allow her to speak on what she believed then and what she believes now about the matters of controversy", he added. A group of House GOP lawmakers introduced a measure that would leave Mrs. Greene on her committees but remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. They're not here to do the people's business.
