‘Awkward!’ House insider flags odd connection with Marjorie Taylor Greene and Mike Johnson

There’s an additional element to be considered regarding the connection between Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and the Republican House Speaker she just threatened to remove from his post, according to a House insider.

Greene recently floated a motion to remove Mike Johnson (R-LA), similar to the one used to oust her former ally, Kevin McCarthy. Dem House aide Aaron Fritschner on Saturday noted a complicating factor there.

Fritschner, the Deputy Chief of Staff for Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), highlighted a report from February suggesting that Greene had said there wasn’t a clear timeline for impeachment articles to be passed to Senate in connection with the impeachment of Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

“SOOOOOOO about this,” he said about the February report.

He continued:

“MTG is still ostensibly leading the impeachment of a cabinet secretary at Mike Johnson’s behest. Awkward!!” Fritschner wrote. “Oh had you totally forgotten that Republicans impeached a cabinet secretary? May be because their first vote failed and then they refused to transmit articles to the Senate.”

He added that Greene appears to have turned the tables on Johnson after he empowered her to take down Mayorkas.

“They’ve just been sitting on it this whole time (amid ceaseless freakout over the border) and most of DC just forgot about it,” Fritschner wrote. “Now the person Johnson deputized to lead the effort to remove Mayorkas is instead working to remove Johnson. Can’t wait to find out how this plays out!”
