California Rep. Jimmy Gomez Introduces Resolution to Expel Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress

by Andrew Trunsky

 

California Democratic Rep. Jimmy Gomez said that he would introduce a resolution to expel Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress after recent reports alleging that she previously supported executing notable Democrats and FBI agents.

“Such advocacy for extremism and sedition not only demands her immediate expulsion from Congress, but it also merits strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell,” Gomez said in a statement on Wednesday evening.

While Gomez’s effort is unlikely to succeed since two-thirds of members must vote in favor and Democrats only have a razor-thin House majority, his measure reflects the widespread condemnation for the freshman congresswoman’s past comments.

Greene has also supported the baseless QAnon conspiracy and questioned whether a plane actually hit the Pentagon on 9/11 before reversing and acknowledging that it did.

“Her very presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and staff who serve in our government, and it is with their safety in mind, as well as the security of institutions and public servants across our country, that I call on my House colleagues to support my resolution to immediately remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body,” he added.

Gomez’s resolution followed reporting on Greene’s Facebook activity from 2018 and 2019, where she “liked” a post that said that a “bullet to the head would be quicker” to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from office and supported the execution of federal law enforcement officers who she thought were part of the “deep state.”

On Wednesday an unearthed video also showed her accosting Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg outside the Capitol, calling him a “coward” for refusing to engage with her. The video followed a Media Matters report that she previously referred to the shooting, which left 17 dead, as a “false flag” operation intended to strip people of their Second Amendment rights.

Greene defended her actions in a statement to the Daily Caller on Wednesday, saying that she “was going from office to office in the Senate to oppose the radical gun control agenda that David Hogg was pushing.”

    Even after what I’ve read she’s still leaps and bounds ahead of liberals when it comes to commonsence.

    My take from this is that Congress is a private club.

    Never mind that the members are elected by their state, in accordance with the limits on government specified in the Constitution. If the state votes them in, absent a conviction for a crime (not a social faux pas) how can congressional cliques vote them out?

    Seems that the members have devised a means of manipulating membership in violation of the Law Of The Land.

    These Dumbocrats keep kicking the hornets nest, while calling for unity. It’s a thing of beauty!

    The Party of Slavery knows that they are on the ropes and that the Trump-led coalition of freedom loving Americans, of all colors, genders and ethnic backgrounds, are coming for them. And they are scared!
