LIVE: House Ousts Marjorie Taylor Greene from Committees Over Embrace of Conspiracies

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “LIVE: House Ousts Marjorie Taylor Greene from Committees Over Embrace of Conspiracies” – below is their description.

(Feb. 4) The House voted Thursday to strip Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene from her two committee seats for embracing conspiracy theories and violence against Democrats, dividing her own party as it tries to move past Donald Trump’s presidency.

With the 230-199 vote, the House will remove Greene from the committees responsible for education and the budget.

Democratic leaders said Greene’s suggestions of violence and approval of social media threats against elected Democrats crossed a line.

“Tell me what message you think that sends,” Majority Leader Steny Hoyer asked before the vote, referring to a doctored image Greene posted on Facebook of herself holding a rifle with photos of progressive congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib.

Though few Republicans defended Greene’s words, some who voted against the resolution said it sets a bad precedent for the majority to interfere with the opposing party’s committee assignments.

Greene, whom Trump had declared “a future Republican star,” spoke on the House floor earlier Thursday to plead her case, saying she has disavowed many of her previous bizarre beliefs, including raising questions about mass school shootings and the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the U.S. But she didn’t directly apologize, and Democrats were unconvinced.
