Update: Speaker Johnson, MTG meet over potential ouster

by ian

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) and his in-party rival, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, have met.

For weeks, Greene has berated Johnson as a sell-out and an incompetent leader. However, the two met yesterday, alongside Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), to try and resolve their differences. CNN reports that the talk, which Johnson called “productive” and nothing outside his usual duties, lasted about two hours.

The meeting precedes a House vote that could oust Johnson, despite most Republicans and Democrats indicating their approval of the speaker.
