On Sunday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) said her motion to vacate the speakership is “coming” regardless of what House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-Louisiana) decides to do.

“Mike Johnson’s speakership is over. He needs to do the right thing to resign and allow us to move forward in a controlled process, and if he doesn’t do so, he will be vacated,” she told Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures.

The show’s host, Maria Bartiromo, asked Greene if she plans to move forward with her motion to vacate, as she has not brought the vote to the House floor since she introduced the effort last month.

“It’s coming regardless of what Mike Johnson decides to do. And we have three more Republicans joining us for a special election coming up very soon. So, people need to know this can happen,” Greene said.

Last week, Johnson called the thread “absurd” and said he would not resign. When asked for her response to the critics who claim she is “creating chaos for the GOP conference, Greene said, “Those that are calling this ‘drama’ are the very people that are responsible for the drama that the American people are having to live through every day.”

“Those on the left, those on the right, the ‘uni’ party that’s in control of our government are the ones that have inflicted the American people with nearly $35 trillion in debt, ripped our border wide open,” she said.

“Our plan is this,” Greene continued. “We have to give the American people a reason to trust us and fight for us. The American people are supporting President [Donald] Trump to be the next president of the United States because they’ve seen him in action. He fought against the Democrat agenda. He put America first. They desperately want him to lead this country again because they trust him, and they know he will do that.”
