McCarthy: “Bring it on.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz introduced a motion to remove Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House:
GAETZ: “Our DHS funding bill requires E-verify. And then hours later, after we pass that, the speaker warrants to vote for a continuing resolution that didn’t include E-verify. Retreat is never a strategy to win anything. So, Mr. Speaker, just tell us, just tell us what was in the secret Ukraine side deal? What commitments were made to President Biden to continue the spending of President Biden in exchange for doing things for President Biden? It is becoming increasingly clear who the speaker of the House already works for, and it’s not the Republican conference. Mr. Speaker, I would ask that these questions be answered soon because there may be other votes coming today or later this week that could be implicated by the answers to these questions. Members of the Republican Party might vote differently on a motion to vacate if they heard what the speaker had to share with us about his secret side deal with Joe Biden on Ukraine.”
He continued: “Mr. Speaker, pursuant to clause two A1 of Rule nine, I rise to give notice of my intent to raise a question of the privileges of House. Declaring the office Speaker of the House of Representatives to be vacant. Resolved that the office of Speaker of the House Representatives is hereby declared to be vacant.”

Gaetz has never been happy about McCarthy winning the leadership role. Remember how long it took for McCarthy to receive the votes?
Gaetz has threatened to file the motion for weeks.
Just did. https://t.co/zdQk3GblbV
