Greene Won’t Confirm Rumors of Her Being Kicked Out Of House Freedom Caucus



Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has refused to say whether the rumors of her removal from the House Freedom Caucus are true.

In a statement to The Epoch Times, Ms. Greene, who has represented Georgia’s 14th Congressional District since 2021, did not confirm or deny she was kicked out of the right-wing group.

“In Congress, I serve Northwest Georgia first, and serve no group in Washington,” she said.

“My America First credentials, guided by my Christian faith, are forged in steel, seared into my character, and will never change,” she continued. “I fight every single day in the halls of Congress against the hate-America Democrats, who are trying to destroy this country.

“I will work with anyone who wants to secure our border, protect our children inside the womb and after they are born, end the forever foreign wars, and do the work to save this country.

“The GOP has less than two years to show America what a strong, unified Republican-led Congress will do when President [Donald] Trump wins the White House in 2024.

“This is my focus, nothing else.”

While Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.), who is on the caucus’ board, told Politico that a vote was taken just before the July 4 congressional recess to remove Greene from the group, Rep. Russ Fulcher (R-Idaho), another House Freedom Caucus member, told The Epoch Times that he was unaware of such a move.

When asked if Greene had actually been expelled from the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.) declined to comment, saying he was “not at liberty to discuss these things” since he had agreed to confidentiality.

Ms. Greene has been at odds with the House Freedom Caucus during the 118th Congress.

She heavily supported House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) from the start in order to win the gavel, but other members of the caucus showed resistance and were able to pressure Mr. McCarthy into making important concessions, such as reducing the number of House members required to file a motion to vacate the chair from five to one and requiring a 72-hour notice before a bill is read and considered by the entire body.

These and other concessions allowed Mr. McCarthy to advance to the position of second in line for the presidency.

Greene also voted in favor of the debt ceiling law, which raises the debt ceiling until January 1, 2025, in contrast to the majority of her caucus members.

Additionally, Greene has been accused of calling Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), a fellow member of the House Freedom Caucus, a “little [expletive]” during an altercation they had on the House floor on June 21.

While Greene had already proposed articles of impeachment against Alejandro Mayorkas, Merrick Garland, Christopher Wray, and Matthew Graves, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, it seems that Greene did not appreciate Boebert submitting one against President Joe Biden.

Congress will resume its busy agenda next week with or without Greene in the Freedom Caucus because the fiscal year ends at the end of September and because no appropriations bills have yet to pass either, much less both, chambers.

The Federal Aviation Administration’s reauthorizations to continue allowing the surveillance of foreign countries, people, and entities are up for renewal, along with a farm bill dealing with agricultural and food policy.

Furthermore, there will be important hearings the following week, including one on July 11 by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations regarding the scandalous merger of the PGA Tour and Saudi-funded LIV Golf.

Despite the subcommittee’s request, the PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan, LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman, and Yasir Al-Rumayyan, the governor of the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, which supports LIV Golf, have all declined to appear before it.

Mr. Norman and Mr. Al-Rumayyan cited “scheduling conflicts” as to why they will not appear for the hearing—according to the subcommittee’s chairman Richard Blumenthal—while Mr. Monahan has been on medical leave since June.

Instead, PGA Tour Chief Operating Officer Ron Price and PGA Tour board member Jimmy Dunne will appear before the subcommittee.

On July 12, Mr. Wray is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary Committee in what is likely to be an explosive hearing.

Mr. Wray, a Republican, has come under fire for—among numerous issues—allegedly allowing the FBI to be weaponized against conservatives.

He is accused of failing to hold those responsible for the Steele Dossier, which led to the surveillance of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, the special counsel investigation that concluded there was no collusion between the campaign and Russia, and the FBI being called to school board meetings after parents voiced their displeasure and anger over the far-Left and explicit material being taught to children.

Additionally, Wray has come under fire from the GOP for withholding documents that are allegedly connected to the corruption of Mr. Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

Under threat of contempt, Wray allowed members of the House Oversight Committee to view in a classified setting an unclassified document alleging Mr. Biden taking a bribe from a foreign official when he was vice president.
