Hoyer Walks Poster of Greene Holding AR-15 to Republicans Side of the Aisle

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Hoyer Walks Poster of Greene Holding AR-15 to Republicans Side of the Aisle” – below is their description.

A fiercely divided House tossed Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene off both her committees Thursday, an unprecedented punishment that Democrats said she’d earned by spreading hateful and violent conspiracy theories.

Underscoring the political vise her inflammatory commentary has clamped her party into, nearly all Republicans voted against the Democratic move but none defended her lengthy history of outrageous social media posts.

The chamber’s near party-line 230-199 vote was the latest instance of conspiracy theories becoming pitched political battlefields, an increasingly familiar occurrence during Donald Trump’s presidency. He faces Senate trial next week for his House impeachment for inciting insurrection after a mob he fueled with his false narrative of a stolen election attacked the Capitol.

Thursday’s fight also underscored the uproar and political complexities that Greene – a master of provoking Democrats, promoting herself and raising campaign money – has prompted since becoming a House candidate last year.

Rather than defending Greene’s remarks, Republicans complained bitterly about the precedent that the Democratic effort would set by meddling in the affairs of a rival party.
