HOUSE OF CARDS: Another GOP House Member Calls for Mike Johnson's Ouster; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.19.24

A third member of the House GOP is calling for Speaker Mike Johnson’s ouster in the wake of the $95 billion dollar foreign aid plan; Rep Paul Gosar (R-AZ) released a statement indicating he would support a motion to vacate.

Reps Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) also want Johnson gone.

From Fox News:

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., released a statement shortly after Johnson’s plan – four bills that amount to $95 billion in spending – survived a key procedural vote on the House floor with more Democratic support than Republican.

He bashed House GOP leaders for not linking his foreign aid proposal, particularly a bill sending money to Ukraine, to U.S. border security measures – frustration shared by other conservative foreign aid skeptics who voted to block the plan from getting a vote on final passage.

“[R]ather than spending the resources to secure our southern border and combating the invasion of 11 million illegals and despite repeated promises there would be no additional money going to Ukraine without first securing our border, the United States House of Representatives, under the direction of the Speaker, is on the verge of sending another $61 billion to further draw America into an endless and purposeless war in Ukraine,” Gosar said in a statement.

“I have added my name in support of the motion to vacate the Speaker.  Our border cannot be an afterthought.  We need a Speaker who puts America first rather than bending to the reckless demands of the warmongers, neo-cons and the military industrial complex making billions from a costly and endless war half a world away.”

Johnson appeared on Mark Levin’s show this week, defending his “controversial” choice to break out the aid bills into separate pieces.
