The following article, Kevin McCarthy Caves to Dems, Offers to Drop Marjorie Taylor-Greene From Her Committees, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Ilhan Omar, AOC, Eric Swalwell and countless Congressional Democrats have said or done things that warranted being dropped from committee assignments.
But since the MSM and liberal “fact-checkers” are on their side, Nancy Pelosi has never been forced to drop the hammer.
Kevin McCarthy, on the other hand, is clearly showing that he’s a pushover.
From Right Scoop:
INSIDE MCCARTHY’S TENTATIVE PLAN TO DEAL WITH GREENE: During a two-hour meeting Tuesday night with Greene, McCarthy explained to the QAnon supporter that her controversial past statements were coming to a head. The problem, McCarthy told her: Democrats are threatening to force a vote to remove her from her committees — and that puts the entire GOP Conference in a bad spot. McCarthy tried to give Greene options, according to a person familiar with their talk: She could denounce QAnon and apologize publicly for espousing hurtful conspiracy theories and endorsing violence on Democrats. She could remove herself from the panel to spare her colleagues a vote on the matter. Or, she could face removal from her own GOP peers.
More from Fox 2 Detroit:
No. 2 House Democrat Steny Hoyer of Maryland released a statement saying that after speaking to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., “it is clear there is no alternative to holding a floor vote on the resolution to remove Rep. Greene from her committee assignments. ”
A McCarthy aide said he would discuss the situation with his GOP colleagues.
