Unveiled: Answers to Four Questions Surrounding the New Bid to Oust Mike Johnson

On Friday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) stirred fresh turmoil in the GOP-led House by filing a motion to vacate Speaker Mike Johnson, just six months into his speakership.

The move was met with criticism from both Republicans and Democrats, who viewed it as counterproductive. Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressed disappointment, citing a lack of respect for the House’s integrity. Other Republicans, such as Rep. Mike Lawler (R-N.Y.), dismissed the motion, emphasizing its unlikelihood of success.

Greene’s motion to vacate mirrored the procedural move used last year to oust Kevin McCarthy, causing internal discord within the GOP. However, Greene’s action did not immediately prompt any legislative action or set a timeframe for considering her proposal to remove Johnson from the speakership.

Greene clarified that she intends to formulate a plan for electing a new leader before pushing for action on the resolution. The upcoming two-week Easter and Passover recess provides a window for her to rally support against Johnson or for opponents to unite in defeating her proposal.

Greene’s charge against Johnson revolves around his passage of multiple spending bills without majority Republican support, relying heavily on Democratic votes.

The concept of ‘privilege’ plays a crucial role in this resolution, as it allows members to bypass House leadership and compel a floor vote. While there’s no guarantee of a vote on Greene’s motion in two weeks, the threat looms over House Republicans during the recess.

However, it’s uncertain if Johnson will be ousted. Some Republicans who previously rebelled against McCarthy indicated reluctance to support Greene’s effort. Democrats are considering aiding Johnson if he promises a floor vote on aid to Ukraine, a demand that has long been sought.

In response to questions about the motion to vacate, Johnson remained composed, signaling confidence amidst his speakership’s uncertainty.
