“We know Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference. He does not have the full support of being Speaker,” Greene said in an episode of the “Firebrand with Matt Gaetz” podcast.

“He does not have the votes that are there, because there are many of us who are very unhappy that Republicans can not be held accountable, while conservatives like me, Paul GosarPaul Anthony GosarJanuary 6 organizers used burner phones to communicate with Trump family, White House: report The right wing’s newfound love of satire and defense ‘It’s just a joke’ Photos of the week: President Biden, Kenosha protesting and a pardon for peanut butter MORE, and many others just constantly accept the abuse of Democrats. The American people do not want that, “she continued.

Greene also targeted McCarthy over the fact that she was stripped of her committee duties earlier this year.

In February, her two committee duties were stripped of the House Democrats and close to a dozen Republicans for apparently supporting violence against Democratic lawmakers in addition to her earlier acceptance of QAnon and other conspiracy theories.

“Number one, everyone saw me being deprived of committees as a brand new member of Congress, which deprived my district of the opportunity to have representation working in committees. No action was taken,” Green said. “In fact, our leader did nothing to defend me, did nothing to stop it. Then today we saw Paul Gosar being censored, and then we saw him lose a committee, and this is another failure.”

McCarthy promised that both members would have committee duties restored if Republicans regained a majority in Parliament by 2022.

“They want committees,” McCarthy said earlier this month. ‘They may have other committee duties. They may have better committee assignments. ”

The Hill has contacted McCarthy’s office for comment.
