On Thursday, all House Democrats and 11 members of the GOP voted to remove Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments. Green has been under scrutiny for comments and social media posts she made before she was elected.

Green had embraced QAnon conspiracy theories, questioned the legitimacy of the 9/11 terror attacks — and even suggested the Parkland school shooting was a “false flag” operation.

Thursday morning, Rep. Greene stood on the house floor and expressed regret for her past remarks without directly apologizing.

The eleven Republicans who joined Democrats to expel Greene from her assignments were as follows: Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart (Fla.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Carlos Giménez (Fla.), Chris Jacobs (N.Y.), John Katko (N.Y.), Young Kim (Calif.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), Nicole Malliotakis (N.Y.), Maria Elvira Salazar (Fla.), Chris Smith (N.J.) and Fred Upton (Mich.)

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy has been under intense pressure to punish Greene or call on her to resign her elected House seat.

In response to the vote, Rep. Greene said she will hold a press conference Friday at 11 a.m.
