US House votes to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from committees after controversial comments

Global News published this video item, entitled “US House votes to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from committees after controversial comments” – below is their description.

The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to strip Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of two high-profile committee assignments over her incendiary remarks including support for violence against Democrats.

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.
