House Speaker Mike Johnson’s position is under threat as conservative House Republicans express dissatisfaction with his leadership.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and others have warned of a potential motion to remove Johnson if he strikes a budget deal with Democrats.

Rep. Greene said, “In my meeting with him yesterday and many other members of Congress, I let Speaker Johnson know that in no way, shape, and form will I support any type of CR.”

“We aren’t continuing … Nancy Pelosi’s budget, and that if he moves forward with a separate deal trading our border security, weakening H.R. 2 in exchange for $60 billion to Ukraine, I told him yesterday in his office that I would vacate the chair, that that is absolutely unacceptable. And we actually have the power of the purse. We’re the ones that are in control, and we need to control the negotiation,” she continued.

Rep. Roy said, “We’re spending more money we don’t have.”

“It’s just more of the same, and, you know, I wish Speaker Johnson [wasn’t] doing this. I’m very disappointed, and hopefully, we can try to figure out what we can do to change it in the next few days,” he continued.

“If things continue to go the way that they’re going, do I think that’s a possible outcome? Absolutely,” said Rep. Eli Crane.

There are concerns within the Republican Party about Johnson’s ability to lead, with some members suggesting he may be in over his head.

The general discord within House Republicans suggests that Johnson’s time as speaker may be short-lived.

“Significant concerns growing about Mike’s ability to jump to this level and deliver conservative wins,” reported an anonymous representative.

“Growing feeling that he’s in way, way over his head. As much as there was valid criticism and frustration with Kevin, Mike is struggling to grow into the job and is just getting rolled even more than McCarthy did,” they added.
