Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from US House Freedom Caucus, Politico reports

Marjorie Taylor Greene, a strong supporter of former President Donald Trump, has been ousted from the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus group in the House of Representatives, according to Politico. Republican Representative Andy Harris stated that a vote was held to remove Greene from the caucus due to her actions. Harris did not disclose his vote but deemed the decision to remove Greene as appropriate. Greene’s office did not provide immediate comment. The House Freedom Caucus spokesperson declined to comment on membership or internal processes.

The formal vote took place following reports of a heated confrontation between Greene and fellow caucus member Representative Lauren Boebert on the House floor last month. Greene directed insults at Boebert during the clash. Harris expressed his disapproval of Greene’s behavior, particularly her derogatory remarks towards another member. He stated that publicly speaking ill of a fellow member, especially a female member, was unacceptable. Harris also acknowledged that Greene’s divergence from the group on the debt limit bill and her support for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy were contributing factors to her removal.

McCarthy faced opposition from hardline Republicans who accused him of betraying their agreement by compromising with Democratic President Joe Biden on debt ceiling legislation. These Republicans claimed that McCarthy and his leadership team failed to deliver on promised spending cuts and disregarded their input.
