    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. Eleven Republicans voted with all Democrats in favor of the resolution.

    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 it 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.

    After the vote, a statement from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office said the GOP representatives had “made it abundantly clear where their allegiances lie: with Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, conspiracy theorists and QAnon believers. “

    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.
