Greene claims Johnson is ‘controlled by the Democrats’

When questioned about her belief that Johnson would not “defund Jack Smith,” the special counsel who filed two indictments against President Trump, Greene confidently stated, “Mike Johnson is controlled by the Democrats, and recent events have only validated my stance.”

During an interview on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, Greene emphasized that it was the Democrats who saved Mike Johnson when she called the motion to vacate.

“He may run down to Mar-a-Lago every chance he gets and hug President Trump as tightly as possible, but Mike Johnson is owned by the Democrats and refuses to protect him,” she emphasized.

In a recent vote, the House of Representatives decisively rejected Greene’s attempt to remove Johnson from his position. Despite Greene’s efforts, only 10 Republicans and 32 Democrats supported her in voting against House Majority Leader Steve Scalise’s motion to table her resolution. As a result, the resolution to remove Johnson was effectively blocked and never brought to a vote on the floor.

In an impressive display of bipartisan support, the chamber voted overwhelmingly, with a margin of 359-43-7, to save Johnson.

During a recent press conference, Johnson strongly criticized Smith and the indictments he filed against Trump. He assured the American public that Congress would take all necessary measures to ensure accountability for these actions.

Johnson restated his position on Sunday, emphasizing that he is collaborating with House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and House Oversight Chair James Comer (Ky.) to determine the next course of action.

“It’s clear that the judicial system in our country has been used as a weapon against President Trump,” expressed Johnson on X. He emphasized his collaboration with Chairmen Jordan and Comer to address the abuses of Special Counsel Jack Smith and ensure that he is held accountable.”
