Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is ejected from the House Freedom Caucus due to her ‘behavior.’
Here are the key takeaways from the news.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Booted From House Freedom Caucus
The U.S. House Freedom Caucus reportedly voted last month to remove Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from the conservative group.
A group member and Maryland Representative Andy Harris confirmed the voting on Thursday and indicated that the group decided to remove Greene after her fight with Republican Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert.
Andy Harris said,” A vote was taken to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from the House Freedom Caucus for some of the things she’s done.”
In June, Greene argued with Boebert when the latter introduced a resolution to impeach U.S. President Joe Biden. Their quarrel intensified after Greene alleged that Beobert’s proposal was similar to the article she proposed in May.
Greene cursed Beobert on the House floor in a manner considered inappropriate to refer to your fellow members in the house. She said, “I’ve donated to you and defended you. But you have been nothing but a little bitch to me.”
Greene added, “And you copied my articles of impeachment after I asked you to cosponsor them.”
As per the source, the two were involved in constant clashes in the past, but Harris suggested that the particular argument has been the reason behind the conservative group’s decision.
Harris stated that Greene’s language to refer to fellow members, especially female colleagues, is not in line with the expected conduct within the group.
He said Thursday, “I think the way she referred to a fellow member was probably not the way we expect our members to refer to other fellow members, especially female members.”
Harris said that removing Greene from the group was an appropriate action. When asked whether she was formally out, he answered, “As far as I know, that’s how it is.”
The Representative also noted that Greene would not be allowed to attend weekly meetings as they are only meant for the caucus members.
Greene’s removal has been the first expulsion in the history of the conservative lawmaker’s group. However, whether the Representative is actually ejected from the group is unclear.
While a Caucus spokesperson did not comment on Greene’s status and remarked that the group is not permitted to comment on membership or internal procedures, Greene, in a statement, clarified that she serves no group and is willing to work with everyone in the house.
Greene said, “In Congress, I serve Northwest Georgia first and serve no group in Washington.” She added that the only group she devoted herself to is her constituency’s electorates.
Greene said,” I fight daily in the halls of Congress against the hate-America Democrats, who are trying to destroy this country. I will work with anyone who wants to secure our border, protect our children inside the womb and after birth, end the forever foreign wars, and do the work to save this country.”
The Georgia representative backs former President Donald Trump‘s third run for the White House. Greene said, “The GOP has less than two years to show America what a strong, unified Republican-led congress will do when President Trump wins the White House in 2024. This is my focus, nothing else.”
