It’s been many years since a freshman in Congress received as much attention as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-FL). Now, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are attacking Greene and trying to have her removed from her committee assignments.
“Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) announced she will file a resolution Monday to strip Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) of her House committee assignments, chiding Greene, who she said has ‘brought shame on the entire House of Representatives,'” according to The Washington Post.
“Wasserman Schultz said Monday that her resolution would remove Greene from her assignments on the “House Education and Labor, and the House Budget committees.”…
“Pelosi had previously criticized the move to put Greene on the House Education and Labor Committee.
“‘Assigning her to the education committee, when she has mocked the killing of little children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, when she has mocked the killing of teenagers in high school, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School,’ Pelosi said during a Thursday news conference. ‘What could they be thinking, or is thinking too generous a word for what they might be doing? It’s absolutely appalling.’
“In a statement previously emailed to The Washington Post, Greene responded to criticism from Democrats: ‘Democrats and their spokesmen in the Fake News Media will stop at nothing to defeat conservative Republicans. They are coming after me because I’m a threat to their goal of Socialism. They are coming after me because they know I represent the people, not the politicians.‘” [emphasis added]
