  •  Greene filed a motion to vacate the chair in March, but has not moved forward with her plan
  • Currently, three House Republicans support effort to oust Johnson
  • Republicans are angry at Johnson for working with Democrats to pass over $60 billion in Ukraine aid  

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene detailed her plan Sunday to oust Speaker Mike Johnson for moving forward legislation to help fund Ukraine, declaring his speakership ‘over.’

‘Mike Johnson’s speakership is over but he needs to do the right thing to resign and allow us to move forward in a controlled process,’ Greene said in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. ‘If he doesn’t do so he will be vacated.’

Greene did not offer a detailed timeline for her plan to oust Johnson but said she looked forward to three upcoming special elections that would strengthen the Republican majority. 

‘It’s coming regardless of what Mike Johnson decides to do, and we have three more Republicans joining us for a special elections coming up very soon,’ she said. ‘So people need to know, this can happen.’ 

California has a special election in May to fill McCarthy’s seat and Ohio and Colorado have special elections in June.

The bill offering over $60 billion in aid to Ukraine passed Saturday, earning the support of 101 House Republicans while 112 voted against it. 

Democrats unanimously supported the bill. 

Greene filed a motion to vacate the chair in March, but has not moved forward on her effort to oust Johnson as Speaker. Fellow Republican Reps. Paul Gosar of Arizona and Thomas Massie of Kentucky signaled their support.

Greene said Johnson had betrayed his Republican base by working with Democrats to help pass FISA and failed to leverage the Ukraine aid fight to secure the Southern border.  

‘He has completely betrayed Republican voters all over the country, and he is absolutely working for the Democrats, typecasting the Biden administration’s agenda,’ she said.

Currently House Republicans only have a one vote margin over Democrats in the House of Representatives.

Johnson told reporters during the funding fight he was not worried about the effort to remove him as Speaker.  

‘I’ve done here what I’ve believed to be the right thing,’ Johnson said. ‘You do the right thing and you let the chips fall where they may.’ 

House Republicans are terrified of another messy Speaker fight after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy was ousted in October, prompting 22 days of infighting until the party finally united around Johnson as his successor

 Greene’s insistence on blocking Ukraine aid earned her the nickname ‘Moscow Marjorie’ from some of her House colleagues, as Russia would benefit if the United States failed to send more weapons and money for Ukraine. 

Greene accused Republicans in Congress for failing to represent their voters.

‘The Republican party in charge right now is no different than the Democrat party. It’s one big uniparty that serves the world first and America last,’ she said.
