Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) reportedly called Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) a “little b—-” to her face on the House floor on Wednesday. The comment fueled tensions between the two women about their individual efforts to impeach President Joe Biden.

Boebert recently announced her own impeachment resolution that employs a procedural tool that would force a vote on her impeachment within days, an uncommon tactic that comes with its own set of challenges.

“Biden intentionally ceded command and control of our border to cartels,” Boebert tweeted on Monday. “His dereliction of duty caused deaths of over 900 Coloradians from fentanyl, enabled sex-trafficator and allowed an invitation. I brought my articles of impeachment up via a privileged motion to force a vote.”

Greene, who claims to have championed an impeachment of Biden since his first day in office, believes that Boebert is intentionally undercutting her plans, as Greene did not use the procedural motion for her resolution.

According to people who witnessed the exchange on Wednesday, Boebert approached Greene about statements that she made about her “publicly,” referring to the Georgia representative’s comments claiming that her resolutions preceded Boebert’s.

Greene then stood up and accused Boebert of “copying” her articles of impeachment, proceeding to call her a “little b—-,” as witnesses have recalled.

Despite a mutual dislike for Biden, many House Republicans are against Boebert’s attempts to rush his possible impeachment. Speaker Kevin McCarthy has warned conservatives that this course of action is not the right one, and many of his allies agree.

“I believe in team sports, you should work together and this is individual and I believe it is undermining the team,” Rep. Don Bacon (R-Nebraska) told CNN. “Impeachment shouldn’t be something that is frivolous and treated in that way. And it is, if you use a privileged motion.”

Boebert and Greene’s confrontation on Wednesday was indicative of the divide between House Republicans as a result of conflicting impeachment plans, amongst other disagreements.

The Rules Committee is preparing to refer Boebert’s measure to the Homeland Security and Judiciary committees on Thursday.
