Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has criticized House Speaker Mike Johnson, accusing him of “betraying” the “confidence” of the House GOP Conference by advancing a bipartisan $1.2 trillion federal funding bill to prevent a partial government shutdown. As a result, she recently filed a motion to vacate against Johnson, who has only been Speaker of the House for a few months. This move has sparked significant discord and debate among fellow Republicans.

Johnson, in an interview on Fox News this weekend, acknowledged Greene’s action as a means of frustration but claimed they’ve been exchanging conversations on the issue via text message. He told host Trey Gowdy the following in regards to growing a House majority when said majority is already razor-thin:

“The mission is to save the Republic, and the only way we can do that is if we grow the House majority, win the Senate and win the White House. So we don’t need any dissension right now… Marjorie’s a friend, she’s very frustrated about, for example, the last appropriations bills. Guess what? So am I. As we discussed, Trey, these are not the perfect pieces of legislation that you and I and Marjorie would draft if we had the ability to do it differently. But with the smallest margin in U.S. history, we’re sometimes going to get legislation that we don’t like, and the Democrats know that when we don’t all stand together with our razor-thin majority, then they have a better negotiation position, and that’s why we got some of the things we didn’t like.”
