Greene claims that whatever GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy does, it will “never be enough for the hate America Democrats”.
Writing on Twitter in response to reports of a potential deal for her removal from the Education and Labor committee in a bid to rescue her spot on the Budget panel, Greene argued the Democrats are baying for her blood.
She claimed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “refuses to see the hypocrisy of her own conference”.
“Filled with members who supported, cheered on, & funded criminal thugs who riot, burn, loot, attack police, murder, & occupy federal property,” she blasted on Twitter.
“Members who sleep with our greatest enemy, marry their brother to get him in our country, lead a violent mob in neighborhoods, and more.
“They are only set out to destroy Republicans, your jobs, our economy, your children’s education and lives, steal our freedoms, and erase God’s creation.”
Greene’s Twitter tirade followed a series of meetings organised by McCarthy to try to broker a solution to the intensifying expulsion row, that erupted on Monday.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer gave Kevin McCarthy, the House Minority Leader, an ultimatum to either strip Greene of her committee assignments or the Democrats will move the issue to the floor.
She has also claimed the 2018 California wildfires were started by “Jewish space lasers.”
Before being elected to Congress, she reportedly endorsed violence against Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other high-ranking Democrats.
During a two-hour meeting Tuesday night with Greene, McCarthy explained to the QAnon supporter that her controversial past statements were coming to a head, reported Politico.
McCarthy later called a late-night meeting with the panel that designates committee assignments to discuss removing Greene.
According to Politico sources, the room agreed that a House vote on this issue would be catastrophic politically for members already angry at being associated with Greene’s controversial statements.
McCarthy is now trying to broker a deal with Hoyer to remove Greene from one committee — Education and Labor — if Democrats back off a House floor vote to remove her from both.
The row comes as Greene said she won’t vote for the “left-wing lunacy” of the Democrats’ Covid stimulus package.
The QAnon-supporting Georgia representative slammed President Joe Biden’s $1.9trillion stimulus plan, which if approved would see $1,400 checks sent out in the coming weeks.
