GOP Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene filed a motion to remove Speaker Mike Johnson last month.

She called him out on X earlier today, it is unclear if a vote on the motion is coming.

Greene said, “Johnson will do whatever Biden/Schumer want in order to keep the Speaker’s gavel in his hand, but he has completely sold out the Republican voters who gave us the majority.”

She also said, “His days as Speaker are numbered.”

The Hill reported:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is doubling down on her commitment to oust Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), saying his days in the leadership position are “numbered” as House members await a potential privileged vote on a motion to vacate.

Greene last month filed a motion to remove Johnson, saying he crossed a line by holding a vote for additional Ukraine aid. Two other GOP lawmakers have already backed it — enough votes to remove the Speaker if all Democrats vote with her — though Democrats have generally opposed her effort.

“Permanent funding for Ukraine is exactly what they want and Mike Johnson will give it to them,” Greene said Sunday in a post on the social platform X, referring to Ukrainian leadership and the Biden administration. “Peace is not an option for them because it doesn’t fit the government appropriations war business and economic model, which is vile and disgusting.”

“They’re plan is keep funding the proxy war with Russia in Ukraine and when that doesn’t work, after all the Ukrainian men have been slaughtered, next they will put American troops on the ground,” Greene said. “Johnson will do whatever Biden/Schumer want in order to keep the Speaker’s gavel in his hand, but he has completely sold out the Republican voters who gave us the majority.”

“His days as Speaker are numbered,” she added.

It has been previously reported that Democrats would save Mike Johnson if the vote to vacate did come up.

Axios reported:

House Democrats expect their members to rescue House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) on a motion to vacate introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Friday.

Why it matters: Greene has said her attempt to formally remove Johnson would be triggered if he holds a House vote on Ukraine aid — something Democrats desperately want.

“I think this is a great way to set up a deal on Ukraine aid,” said one House Democrat, “but I think either way we’ll protect him.”

A spokesperson for House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) did not respond to a request for comment.
