Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia made an appearance on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox Business program. She attempted to justify her recent actions to remove House Speaker Mike Johnson from his position.

Abandon her campaign

In the interview, Greene informed Bartiromo that she would have been willing to abandon her campaign to remove Johnson if he had agreed to halt the funding for special counsel Jack Smith’s investigations into former President Donald Trump’s alleged criminal activities.

Defund Jack Smith

“I asked Mike Johnson this week, I said, ‘look, if you’ll defund Jack Smith, then I’ll reconsider this motion to vacate,'” Greene told the Fox Business host.

Impractical

Following Greene’s interview, Sahil Kapur, a journalist at NBC News, used Twitter to outline why her ultimatum to Johnson was deemed impractical.

Reality check

“Reality check: Mike Johnson cannot single-handedly defund Jack Smith,” he noted.

Government funding

Also, government funding is done and settled through Sept 30.”

Amendments

“Republicans have introduced amendments to do this but they’ve gone nowhere in committee and don’t have the votes in the House, let alone the Senate.

Financial assistance

Last week, Greene conveyed to Johnson her demand for a commitment to refrain from providing financial assistance to Ukraine, a country facing the threat of invasion from Russia.

Unfounded allegations

Greene has made unfounded allegations against Ukraine, claiming that the country is engaging in a “war on Christianity” and spreading false information about Ukraine “executing priests.”
