Marjorie Taylor Greene lays out demands for GOP House speaker vote if Republicans retake majority in 2022

(CNN)Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, one of Donald Trump's staunchest allies in Congress, on Thursday laid out demands for a GOP leader to earn her vote for House Speaker if Republicans are able to retake the majority after the 2022 elections and cast doubt on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy being elected to the position.

"We know that Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference. He doesn't have the full support to be speaker," Greene said on an episode of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz's podcast that aired Thursday morning. "He doesn't have the votes that are there, because there's many of us that are very unhappy about the failure to hold Republicans accountable, while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar, and many others just constantly take the abuse by the Democrats."

Greene, who previously told reporters she would be laying out a list of demands to earn her speaker vote, mentioned some of the challenges that lay ahead in McCarthy's quest for the speaker's gavel. Among her demands, the Republican told Gaetz she wants fellow GOP Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Liz Cheney of Wyoming kicked out of the House Republican Conference for serving on the January 6 committee, something McCarthy has so far resisted. She also said she has no respect for current GOP leadership.

The command from Greene comes amid frustration from some Republicans with GOP House leadership as McCarthy eyes the House leadership position. Trump's allies in Congress -- who have voiced increasing skepticism and frustration with McCarthy in recent weeks -- have already started to flex their muscles in the potential race for speaker, which is still more than a year away.

Depending on the party's margins, McCarthy could have a math problem if these Trump allies stick together. The House Freedom Caucus, which denied McCarthy the speakership once before, is comprised of roughly 40 members.

Some in Trump's orbit, including Gaetz and Trump's former chief of staff Mark Meadows, have also teased that Trump should make a play for the speaker's gavel, a move that could be designed to put McCarthy on notice and remind him of the leverage that the MAGA wing of the party would have in a speaker's race.

Greene also wants to see moderate Rep. John Katko, a New York Republican and McCarthy ally, lose his top spot on the House Homeland Security Committee. Katko, who represents a key swing district, supported the bipartisan infrastructure law, voted to impeach Trump and supported the Democratic-led effort to remove Greene from her committees.

"Katko's not a Republican. He's a Democrat," Greene said. "Our conference and the NRCC needs to stop playing this majority-maker game."

如果共和党在 2022 年重新获得多数席位,Marjorie Taylor Greene 提出要求共和党众议院议长投票

(美国有线电视新闻网)乔治亚州众议员马乔里泰勒格林是唐纳德特朗普在国会最坚定的盟友之一,周四提出要求,如果共和党人能够在 2022 年选举后重新夺回多数席位并提出质疑,共和党领导人将赢得她对众议院议长的投票on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy being elected to the position.

“我们知道凯文麦卡锡在我们的会议上遇到了问题。他没有完全支持成为演讲者,”格林在周四早上播出的佛罗里达众议员马特盖茨的播客中说。 “他没有现有的选票,因为我们中的许多人对未能让共和党人承担责任感到非常不满,而像我、保罗·戈萨尔这样的保守派人士和其他许多人只是不断地接受民主党人的辱骂。”

格林此前曾告诉记者,她将列出一份要求以赢得演讲者选票的清单,她提到了麦卡锡寻求演讲者木槌时面临的一些挑战。在她的要求中,共和党人告诉盖茨,她希望共和党众议员伊利诺伊州的亚当金辛格和怀俄明州的利兹切尼因在 1 月 6 日的委员会任职而被赶出众议院共和党会议,麦卡锡迄今为止一直反对。她还说她不尊重当前的共和党领导层。

格林的命令是在一些共和党人对共和党众议院领导地位感到沮丧之际,因为麦卡锡着眼于众议院的领导地位。特朗普在国会的盟友——最近几周对麦卡锡表达了越来越多的怀疑和沮丧——已经开始在潜在的议长竞选中大展拳脚,而这场竞选还有一年多的时间。

如果这些特朗普的盟友团结在一起,麦卡锡可能会遇到数学问题,这取决于党的利润率。众议院自由核心小组由大约 40 名成员组成,此前曾否决麦卡锡的议长职位。

特朗普轨道上的一些人,包括盖茨和特朗普的前任幕僚长马克梅多斯,也取笑特朗普应该为演讲者的木槌表演,此举旨在让麦卡锡引起注意,并提醒他 MAGA 的影响力党的翼将在演讲者的比赛中。

格林还希望看到温和的众议员约翰卡特科失去他在众议院国土安全委员会的最高位置,他是纽约共和党人和麦卡锡的盟友。代表关键摇摆区的卡特科支持两党基础设施​​法,投票弹劾特朗普,并支持民主党领导的将格林从委员会中撤职的努力。

“Katko 不是共和党人。他是民主党人,”格林说。 “我们的会议和 NRCC 需要停止玩这种多数制造商的游戏。”
