Democrats have introduced a resolution to strip a pro-Trump Republican lawmaker of her committee assignments over her past posts on social media. Marjorie Taylor Greene has embraced conspiracy theories, including that school shootings and 9/11 were staged. The group of Democrats that filed the resolution called it a “line-in-the-sand moment for the Republican Party”. The Georgia congresswoman last month introduced a measure attempting to impeach US President Joe Biden. She tweeted on Monday: “If Democrats remove me from my committees, I can assure them that the precedent they are setting will be used extensively against members on their side once we regain the majority after the 2022 elections. “And we will regain the majority, make no mistake about that.” Elected to Congress in November, Mrs Greene was assigned to the Education and Labour Committee and the Budget Committee by House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy.(BBC)…[+]
