Marjorie Taylor Greene files motion to vacate House Speaker Mike Johnson


Active member
Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Friday filed a motion to vacate the speaker’s chair, threatening to oust Speaker Mike Johnson just months after he ascended to the speakership.

"I filed the motion to vacate today, but it's more of a warning and a pink slip," Greene told reporters outside the U.S. Capitol. "I respect our conference. I paid all my dues to my conference. I am a member in good standing and I do not wish to inflict pain on my conference and to throw the House in chaos."

"It's time for us to go through the process, take our time and find a new speaker of the House that will stand with Republicans and our Republican majority instead of standing with the Democrats," Greene added.
