Marjorie Taylor Greene launches bid to REMOVE Speaker Mike Johnson from office as she files motion to vacate in fury over forcing vote on massive $1.2trillion funding bill

House passes $1.2 TRILLION funding bill: Democrats help Speaker Mike Johnson survive uprising from furious conservatives who called package ‘garbage‘ – bill now heads to Senate with 12 hours until shutdown deadline

On Friday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) filed a motion to formally boot Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) from the office, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Greene’s move, which came amid conservative outrage over Johnson’s deal on a spending deal to avert a government shutdown, threatens to throw the chamber into chaos just months after a hard-right faction ousted Kevin McCarthy from the top job.

In October of last year, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) filed the motion to vacate McCarthy as privileged, resulting in his ouster.

Conservatives are upset with Johnson for a litany of reasons but their anger has centered on spending bills. Johnson agreed to a deal with Democrats to keep the government open ahead of a shutdown this weekend; hardliners saw it as another capitulation to Democrats and a failure to fight for right-wing priorities.
