Greene Says Republican Votes Against Her Are a ‘Big Betrayal,’ May Cost Party Majority in 2022

By Ivan Pentchoukov, The Epoch Times, February 5, 2021:

Rep. Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.) said the Republicans who voted to strip her of committee posts on Feb. 4 committed a “big betrayal” and may cost the GOP the House majority in the 2022 election.

“There were 10 that voted for impeachment against President [Donald] Trump and they definitely paid the price. They heard from Republican voters. There were 11 that voted against me yesterday and that’s something that our leaders should be very upset about,” Greene told reporters during a press conference on Capitol Hill on Friday.

“Kevin McCarthy and the rest of the Republican Party is working hard on taking back the majority and when you have Republicans in the ranks voting against one of their own, opening the door for Democrats to go after every single Republican next, that really is a big betrayal and that could cost us the majority in ’22.”

Greene made the remarks the day after 11 Republicans joined the Democrats in the House to strip her of assignments to the House Budget Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee. Three of the 11 had also voted to impeach former President Trump: Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), and Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.).

“People are very angry. That’s all I heard from people all morning—furious about that,” Greene said. “I hope that my Republican colleagues really think about what they’ve done. I’m sure they’re gonna hear from their voters at home because the base is loyal to President Trump and the base has been very loyal to me and they’ve shown me that.”

The resolution stripping Greene of her posts did not cite the conduct for which she was being punished, but Greene has been accused of expressing interest in the QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that a group of global elites are part of a cabal engaged in Satanism and pedophilia. Greene told reporters that she said and believed things that were wrong.

Greene said that the vote to strip her of committee assignments also stripped her district from representation in Congress. She nevertheless said she is “proud” to have been removed from the posts because they would have been a waste of her time because Democrats are in control of the House and the committees.

“They actually stripped my district of their voice. They stripped my voters of having representation to work for them,” Greene said.

The eight other Republicans who voted against Greene were Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.), Chris Jacobs (R-N.Y.), Young Kim (R-Calif.), Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), Maria Elvira Salazar (R-Fla.), and Chris Smith (R-N.J.).
