Marjorie Taylor Greene creates headaches for House GOP as leaders weigh how much attention to give the Trump loyalist

·1 min

GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, previously a loyal supporter of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, has become increasingly rebellious under Speaker Mike Johnson. Greene’s recent actions, including calling for an impeachment of President Joe Biden and advocating for a government shutdown, have alienated her from the House GOP Conference. Despite this, Greene remains emboldened by the support she receives from MAGA supporters, including former President Donald Trump. Some Republicans fear the influence of Greene’s audience and fundraising abilities. Greene’s behavior shift can be attributed to the different management styles of McCarthy and Johnson.
