Greene: ‘Johnson is owned by the Democrats’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) accused Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) of being “owned by the Democrats” in a Sunday interview.

Asked why she thinks Johnson would not “defund Jack Smith,” referring to the special counsel who brought two indictments against President Trump, Greene said, “Mike Johnson is owned by the Democrats and that proved to me to be right again.”

“When I called the motion to vacate, it wasn’t Republicans that saved Mike Johnson. It was Democrats that saved Mike Johnson,” Greene said, in an interview on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.

 “And when you have Nancy Pelosi, who was Speaker of the House when they impeached President Trump twice, and you have Jerry Nadler, who was chairman of the Judiciary Committee that led the impeachment against President Trump, voting to save Mike Johnson, that tells the American people everything that they need to know,” she continued.

“Mike Johnson is owned by the Democrats and refuses to protect President Trump even though he runs down at Mar-a-Lago every chance he gets and hugs him as tightly as possible,” she added.

Greene’s comment comes after the House overwhelmingly rejected her effort this past week to oust Johnson from his post. Only 10 Republicans and 32 Democrats joined her in voting against House Majority Leader Steve Scalise’s (R-La.) motion to table her resolution, which ultimately prevented the removal resolution from ever hitting the floor for a vote.

The chamber voted 359-43-7 to save Johnson in an overwhelming bipartisan vote.

Truth Puke has reached out to Johnson’s office for a response.
