House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday appeared to dash the hopes of the far-left wing of the Democratic Party to remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., from office.
Democrats have targeted Greene, who was elected with 75% of the vote in her district, because she has espoused some of the views of the QAnon movement.
But Pelosi said Friday that the resolution by Rep. Jimmy Gomez, D-Calif., to expel Greene isn’t supported by House leadership, FoxNews.com reported.
“Members are very unhappy about what happened here and they can express themselves in the way they do,” Pelosi said. “What Mr. Gomez did is his own review and that is not a leadership position.”
House Democrats already have removed Greene from her committee assignments. Gomez accused Greene of inciting political violence and threatening the lives of members of Congress on Jan. 6.
Looks like the Marjorie Taylor Greene suspension was an accident.
Spox: “Our automated systems took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated.” https://t.co/chcGswAQzv

The suspension later was lifted.
