Could GOP Oust Pelosi?

Could GOP Oust Pelosi?
  • The Freedom Caucus wants Pelosi out of the speaker’s seat.
  • After the 2020 State of the Union, the speaker ripped up a copy of President Trump’s speech. 
  • Pelosi and her caucus refuse to compromise on a COVID-19 stimulus bill.
  • The speaker recently admitted she hasn’t spoken directly to the president in almost a year.

(NewsReady.com) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been one of the most disrespectful congressional leaders in recent history. Her disdain of President Donald Trump has made her behave unprofessionally time and again. Meanwhile, her party members aren’t doing their jobs by helping the American people during this crisis. A collection of Republicans are sick of it and they want to do something about it. But, can they?

Freedom Caucus Devises a Plan

On September 16, POLITICO published a report claiming the Freedom Caucus has been devising a plan to oust Pelosi. According to sources, the Conservative lawmakers want House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to offer a motion to “vacate the chair.”

The GOP leader is the only member of Congress able to do that. By calling for a motion to vacate the chair, the full House of Representatives would then have to vote on whether they believe Pelosi should remain in power.

Republicans could oust the speaker.

“Could” is the operative word, however. In reality, the Democratic Party still has a majority in the House. So, even if the entire chamber voted, Pelosi would probably retain her seat.

McCarthy was asked about the plot on Fox News and said he doesn’t think the idea is the “best move.” Instead, the minority leader said Republicans need “to win 218 seats” and Pelosi will lose her power that way.

Democrats, like the GOP, are trying to find ways to expand their power, too. Not only does the Left want to keep the House majority, but they also want the White House and the Senate. If they can take control of both chambers of Congress and the executive office, they could undo everything President Donald Trump has accomplished.
