Mike Johnson told this ugly lie that left Marjorie Taylor Greene no choice but to make one announcement

House Speaker Mike Johnson escalated his fight with Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.

But Johnson has no idea what’s about to hit him.

And Mike Johnson told this ugly lie that left Marjorie Taylor Greene no choice but to make one announcement.

Speaker Johnson spreads falsehoods about a motion to vacate

Before Congress went on recess, Greene (R-GA) introduced a motion to vacate the chair.

Greene didn’t call for a vote yet on removing Johnson as Speaker, but Greene wanted Johnson to know conservatives were fed up after Johnson surrendered on a $1.2 trillion spending bill that funded a red flag gun confiscation operation, open borders, and transgender ideology.

Now that Congress is coming back from recess, Greene is threatening to call a vote on the motion to vacate the chair if Johnson rams through a $61 billion slush fund for Joe Biden’s failed war in Ukraine.

Johnson tried to squelch that move in an interview with Christian Broadcast Network’s David Brody.

But Johnson made a major miscalculation.

Johnson tried to scare Republicans into not backing the motion to vacate the chair, which would lead to a Speaker Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY).

Republicans, Johnson told Brody, don’t need to be “pulling a motion to vacate” because “removing a Speaker right now is exactly the opposite of what we need to show the country . . . if the chair is vacated, it’s certainly possible you get a Democrat Speaker.”

Greene debunks this falsehood

In a “dear colleague” letter to her fellow Republicans, Greene explained that supporting a motion to vacate the will only lead to a Democrat Speaker if Republicans crossover to join with Democrats to elect one.

Greene said her motion to vacate will result in the GOP majority “electing a new Republican Speaker” and “will not give the majority to the Democrats. That only happens if more Republicans retire early, or Republicans actually vote for Hakeem Jeffries. It’s not complicated, it’s simple math.”

The Georgia conservative slammed Johnson as a “Uniparty” Speaker who serves Joe Biden and his agenda.

Greene warned that Republicans squandered all goodwill with the voters by acting as handmaidens for the Democrats and that the only reason Republicans had any chance of keeping their majority was if they could ride Donald Trump’s coattails to victory.

“With so much at stake for our future and the future of our children, I will not tolerate this type of Republican ‘leadership.’ This has been a complete and total surrender to, if not complete and total lockstep with, the Democrats’ agenda that has angered our Republican base so much and given them very little reason to vote for a Republican House majority. As a matter of fact, if we win the House this fall, it will only be because President Trump is on the ballot, not because we have earned it,” Greene wrote.

“And if these actions by the leader of our conference continue, then we are not a Republican party— we are a Uniparty that is hell-bent on remaining on the path of self-inflicted destruction. I will neither support nor take part in any of that, and neither will the people we represent,” Greene concluded.
