Marjorie Taylor Greene responds to being removed from committee assignments

by News Update

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) gave remarks for the first time since the House of Representatives voted to remove her from committee assignments, a decisive step that comes in the wake of recently unearthed incendiary and violent past statements from the congresswoman that have triggered widespread backlash from Democrats and divided congressional Republicans.
The vote tally was 230-199 with 11 Republican House members voting with Democrats to remove Greene from her committee assignments.
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, however, and House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy on Wednesday released a statement calling the push by Democrats to take away the congresswoman’s committee assignments a “partisan power grab.”
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.

free speach is "i think they are stupid" free speech isn't " storm the capitol" or "we need to murder democrats"

What a nutcase. Howcome this hatefull person is still allowed to stay at all. She will repeat her despicable sick behaviour.

Leonardo Angel February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

Free speech doesn't mean encouraging insurrectionist and blaming other people for her violent and murderous speech against another representative. She deserves to ousted!! She following the playbook of trump!! Kevin McCarthy is guilty for being complacent!!!

Dahoud Ali February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

I’m all for Free Speech, but it comes with responsibility too.

Joe Jones February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

Way to go 11 Republicans. Clap clap clap.

MARIA CALVO-WEIL February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

What she really means in her remarks is that now she has a lot of time on her hands to make trouble. She is so low-brow; a total fraud, liar and untrustworthy. So boring!

James Culp February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

As unsound as her comments have been, what does it say about the state of Georgia, who elected her? We gotta get facts back into Government. And maybe that means disqualifying mentally feeble people from Politics and education. Vote for me 😉

Gan Dolph February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

Is making laws important? Being on committee is "a waste of time," she says. Ok.

Angel Adriel February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

CNN is pure evil. I feel bad for you brainwashed people.

Debbie Oaldon February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

She didn’t attack anyone!! Grow a pair dude!! Y’all lie so dang much! God will get y’all straightened out! And Trump should still be in the White House!!

Woodstock G February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

Marjorie, your obnoxious and I’m being kind. As for the comment on this is Trumps party, perfect description of a factious party.

Anne Lavallee February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

She's a nut. Plain and simple.

Billy Wayne February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

Let's talk about AOC lying about being 'locked in bathroom,' during the Capitol Hill riots. It never happened! And yet wheres the story on that?!

Chris Retzinger February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

If you want to do good for your party and the conspiracy theory believers – List SPECIFICALLY what you said that is wrong, apologize for each, and state the corrected belief you hold now. But being a coward, you likely wont do it.

Mohammed Ali February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

Your actions have consequences Rep. Green.. Your mouth has failed the people you represented, who had FAITH IN YOU, SO, you have to pay the price. You may be an excellent representative of the electorate, but, you have to temper your tongue and do not say anything that comes to your mind.
REMEMBER, the majority who not only laughed with you ALSO, laughed at you. Not only those who voted against you, this set also SAVED YOU from further self-destruction.

don mcdougal February 6, 2021 - 12:59 AM

Welcome to the real world mess with the bull get the horn

Carter Mohr February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

trocarcat February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

when "her district" has a crazy idiot's voice, they SHOULD lose it…
"Its fine.. now I have even more time to be an asshole and harass and lie to my fellow countrymen…"

e i February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

you didn't admit anything you trust , none is thrilled. You lied up until a few months ago .

kiddtaak February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

I think another big reason as to why the senators are able to push back a little bit against trumpism is they get elected for 6 years on like house representatives who are elected for 2 years. So house representatives have to bend the knee and play the game more often To trumpism and his fanatics causes soon as they win an election they have to get ready to be re elected.

Darleen March February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

Trying to save her ego; but at least we got an honest reversal. Maybe, maybe, she learned a wee bit!

Christopher Seton-Smith February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

Those freedom fries have addled their brain
So the GOP in Congress hardly seem sane.
It threatens those members who don't bend the knee
To those who spout only political Trumpery.

Diane Hebert February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

llhan Omar was married to her brother, still in Congress, still on committees.

Cookie Cracker February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

Wait, she said that she said shit that is not true? what Qanon has to say about that? She is a hard worker? didn't she just reached in the pockets of people who had nothing to do with this and collected over 160K? what the hell is this?

Timothy Isham February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

No body dare challenge the swamp media CNN.

Judi Mozisek February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

It is no longer the Republican party but the Trump Party. Republicans no longer exist

Tom Jones February 6, 2021 - 1:00 AM

Russia collusion was a conspiracy theory, and a lie. When are we going to go after all the Congressmen who pushed that BS?
