Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, expressed her concerns to reporters on Friday.

She stated that she has filed a motion to vacate House Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana. Greene accused Johnson of betraying the confidence of the House GOP Conference by supporting a bipartisan federal funding bill worth $1.2 trillion, which aimed to prevent a partial government shutdown.

“It’s more of a warning and a pink slip. There’s not a time limit on this, it doesn’t have to be forced… But I’m not saying that it won’t happen in two weeks, or it won’t happen.” Greene said to reporters.

In late October, Johnson assumed the position of gavel-wielder following the removal of his predecessor through a motion to vacate resolution earlier in the same month.

During the House vote on the package, three Republican lawmakers on the House floor informed Fox News that Greene was the one who made the significant move.

During the vote, Greene was observed signing a document at the front of the chamber and handing it over to House staff. Despite numerous attempts to obtain a response, her office has remained unresponsive.
