Nancy Pelosi rejects Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) Resolution to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) from Congress.
The measure would have failed anyway
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday said she did not support a move by some Democrats led by Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) from Congress.
About 70 House Democrats joined Gomez in signing the resolution, which is far less than the two-thirds majority needed for an expulsion; However, ten Republicans joined with Democrats to vote to impeach President Trump by a vote of 232 to 197.
I’m not going to get into that,” Pelosi told reporters Friday about the bid to expel Greene, suggesting that she did not support his resolution. “Members are heartbroken about what’s happened here. And they can express themselves the way they do. What Mr. Gomez did is his view. And that is not a leadership position.”
Greene’s told The Epoch Times that her personal Twitter account was locked on Friday as Gomez introduced his resolution.
“No reason was given from Twitter after multiple attempts to contact them,” a spokesman for her office said on Friday morning. Partial Source: epochtimes.com.
We think Pelosi made the correct decision by not supporting Gomez’s Resolution. However, she probably was motivated because such a bill would not garner sufficient votes to pass.
