The House Freedom Caucus says Nancy Pelosi Needs to Go!


Wouldn’t that be great if Nancy Pelosi was removed from being House Speaker?

Well, that could happen!

Members of the House Freedom Caucus are trying to persuade House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to support an effort to get rid of  Nancy Pelosi as the speaker of the House.

The Freedom Caucus is a group of 40 Conservatives in the House and their plan is to dethrone Pelosi.

Many are skeptical of the plan.

Minority leader McCarthy a Republican is also on record saying we should beat her the old fashion way by voting.

Fox News broke the story and reported these details:

Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus are trying to convince House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to back an effort to remove Nancy Pelosi as the speaker of the chamber, an unrealistic long-shot effort happening less than seven weeks before Election Day.

McCarthy, R-Calif., on “The Ingraham Angle” Wednesday night said he is not interested in pursuing the move against the speaker, essentially dashing any hope the Freedom Caucus members — who occupy just about 40 of the 435 seats in the House of Representatives — would have had of gaining traction in their effort.

“What I’m in favor of is defeating Nancy Pelosi and [Jerry] Nadler and all the others,” McCarthy said as he made his pitch for Republicans deposing Pelosi, D-Calif., the old-fashioned way — by winning elections on Nov. 3. “If we were able to remove Nancy Pelosi you’d have another Democrat. The real challenge would be we’re … four weeks away from [the] election, or 40-some days. These Democrats could actually vote against Nancy Pelosi, use it in their campaigns to say they’re not with her, even though they vote with her 95% of the time.”

Politico offered these details to the story:

Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus are quietly working to convince GOP leadership to sign off on a long-shot bid to oust Nancy Pelosi from the speakership, according to multiple sources, which would represent a major affront to the California Democrat if they follow through with the plan.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is the only GOP member who can offer a “motion to vacate the chair” and force a floor vote on whether Pelosi can retain the speaker’s gavel, according to House rules implemented at the start of this Congress.

McCarthy apparently has not yet decided whether he will support the insurgent effort. But McCarthy did agree to hold a GOP conference meeting next Tuesday to discuss the idea, according to Republican sources — a sign that he is at least giving serious consideration to deploying the procedural weapon.

“I don’t think it’s the best move at the moment,” McCarthy said. “The best move is to win 218 seats, and that defeats Nancy Pelosi.”

She must go!

She has wreaked enough havoc.
