Marjorie Taylor Greene Is Worried That Liz Cheney Could Be Speaker Of The House

Marjorie Taylor Greene is worried that few Republicans might make a deal with Democrats to get someone like Liz Cheney elected to be the next Speaker of the House.

Greene said on Steve Bannon’s podcast:

“We’ve already been through two years where we saw Republicans — Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger — cross over and join the Democrats and produce a Jan. 6 committee,” Greene said.

The danger is this, do we want to watch a challenge for Speaker of the House simply because the ‘Never Kevin’ movement — just like we’ve seen a ‘Never Trump” movement — do we want to see that challenge open the door to Nancy Pelosi handing the gavel to Liz Cheney?

If the Republican majority is small enough, a handful of Republicans could team up with Democrats to elect someone other than Kevin McCarthy to be the next Speaker of the House.

In the same interview, Greene also defended Kevin McCarthy and said that he should be the next Speaker, which suggests that McCarthy has cut some kind of deal with Greene. Given Greene’s extremist agenda, the thought of such an agreement should be troubling to the American people.

It is not out of the realm of possibility that a few Republicans could break away and team up with Democrats to support a different candidate. The Republican majority will be tiny, so any defections could cost McCarthy and the GOP the speakership.
