Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) isn’t messing around.
House Speaker Mike Johnson and the rest of the GOP establishment are on notice.
And Marjorie Taylor Greene made one promise that has Mike Johnson pacing the floor at night.
Speaker Johnson attended a meeting at the White House with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries.
The point of the meeting was to pressure Johnson to accept the amnesty sellout that Senate RINOs were negotiating in order to allow the House to pass $61 billion in new funding for Joe Biden’s disastrous war in Ukraine.
Conservatives said they wouldn’t support any money for Ukraine unless Joe Biden agreed to policy changes that would secure the southern border.
McConnell and his fellow Senate RINOs only care about the Ukraine money and are set on an amnesty sellout that would hand work permits to every illegal alien Joe Biden releases into America and allow at least one-million border crossings per year.
The amnesty in the deal is guaranteed up front, but all of the watered down border security enforcement mechanisms are voluntary, meaning Joe Biden will never implement them.
In an interview with Fox News Channel’s Maria Bartiromo, Congresswoman Greene revealed that she told Speaker Johnson to his face that she will file a motion to vacate the chair and remove him as Speaker if he brings this America last deal up for a vote in the House.
“I told Speaker Johnson if he made that deal in exchange for $60 billion for Ukraine, I would vacate the chair,” Greene stated. “And I still stand by those words.”
A clearly nervous Johnson addressed this reality in an interview with CNN’s Kaitlin Collins.
Johnson tried to put on a brave face when Collins asked if he was worried about Greene’s threat.
Johnson tried to claim that Greene was only concerned about a lack of oversight.
“No, I have a job to do,” Johnson stated. “We all have to do our jobs. Marjorie Taylor Greene is very upset about the lack of oversight over the funding and over the lack of an articulation of a plan, as am I. All of us.”
To her credit, Collins informed Johnson that Greene is opposed to more money for Ukraine and told him that he will be out of a job if he gives away the store on amnesty and Ukraine funding.
“But she doesn’t care about a plan,” Collins shot back. “She doesn’t want any Ukraine funding, period, no matter what the White House says the plan is.”
Johnson admitted that was the case, but in a worrisome comment sounded like he was ready to walk the plank and ram through new Ukraine funding because that is what the Swamp desired.
“I understand,” Johnson concluded. “I’ve talked with her about it personally at great length and she’s made her position very clear. We have to do our job. We have to continue to ensure that we’re covering all these bases and we’ll see how this all shakes out. I’m not worried about that. I got a job to do here. And we have to make sure we get the answers that we demanded.”
