In a recent development, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has called for the resignation of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Mike Johnson (R-La.) after the House of Representatives approved a new aid package for Ukraine. Greene has accused Johnson of betraying Republican voters and threatened to initiate a vote for his removal if he does not resign.

What happenedGreene’s demand for Johnson’s resignation comes in the wake of the House of Representatives’ passage of a $95 billion foreign aid package, including $61 billion for Ukraine and regional partners. Johnson, who had previously opposed introducing a foreign aid bill in the House of Representatives, joined Democrats to advance the bill, which now heads to the Senate for final approval, CNN reported.

“Mike Johnson’s speakership is over. He must do the right thing by resigning and allowing us to move forward in a controlled process. If he doesn’t, he will be fired,” Greene said, according to the report.

Greene, along with at least two other Republicans, has expressed support for an effort to impeach Johnson. Despite this, Johnson remains confident, believing he can count on cross-party support to defeat any motion to vacate the speaker’s seat.

Why it matters: This isn’t the first time Greene has criticized Johnson’s leadership. Earlier this month, she called Johnson a “damned fool” for his position on Ukraine’s financing Steve Bannon’s podcast. Greene echoed the feelings of her constituents, who she said were “so angry” with Johnson.

Greene had stepped back in her bid to impeach Johnson, stating that she would consult with her fellow Republicans in the House of Representatives before deciding whether to move forward with a vote to impeach him, according to another Benzinga article.
