Democrat introduces resolution to expel GOP Rep. 玛乔丽·泰勒·格林

民主代表. Jimmy Gomez of California formally introduced a resolution Friday to expel Georgia Republican Rep. 玛乔丽·泰勒·格林 from Congress, suggesting that sheadvocated violence against our peers, the Speaker and our government.

I take no joy in introducing this resolution, but any member who cites political violence and threatens our lives must be expelled,” Gomez said Friday. “I believe some of my Republican colleagues, and one in particular, wish harmed upon this legislative body. I’m not saying this for shock value. It’s the conclusion I drew after a member of Congress advocated violence against our peers, the speaker and our government.
Seventy-two Democrats have supported this resolution; zero Republicans.
    Under the Constitution, the House of Representatives has the power to expel any member with a two-thirds vote, but it’s not expected there would be the votes for that, especially among Republican members. 仍然, the support for the resolution does illustrate the rancor and divisiveness that has taken root in the House since the riots on January 6 and the storming of the Capitol.
      二月里, the House voted to remove Greene from her committee assignments, a decisive step that came in the wake of recently unearthed incendiary and violent past statements from the congresswoman that triggered widespread backlash from Democrats and divided congressional Republicans.
        House Democrats, who control the chamber, set up the vote after first attempting to pressure Republicans to strip the Georgia Republican of committee assignments on their own. House Republicans did not take that action, 然而.
        Greene defended herself ahead of the vote in a speech on the House floor and attempted to distance herself from the dangerous and debunked QAnon conspiracy theory, which she has previously embraced.
          Outrage over Greene grew more intense in Congress in the wake of a report from CNN’s KFile that she repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians 在 2018 和 2019 被当选国会议员前.
          The Georgia Republican has also faced backlash over recently resurfaced comments about the 2018 Parkland school shooting.
          在给CNN的声明中, Green saidHouse Democrats have declared war on House Republican Women,” adding thatDemocrats are trying overturn the will of the People who voted for both myself and Congresswoman Miller-Meeks.
