Both Green and Goser have been stripped of their committee functions for intimidating the Democrats.

Goser was condemned this month for posting a manipulated anime cartoon that featured him assassinating Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Greene was removed from his act after posting messages that included sharing anti-Semitic and Islamophobic comments as well as QAnon conspiracy theories.

McCarthy has been under pressure to act against members who use violent rhetoric, amid increasing threats against lawmakers in the wake of the January 6 uprising at the Capitol.

But he shrugged off the matter at a press conference, saying Republicans can expect to regain their committee position if they retake the House in the mid-2022.

‘I can’t respect leadership that doesn’t hold people accountable, yet allows people like me, Paul Goser, to be constantly trampled on and abused, and then throw us under the bus at the first opportunity. I’m really sick of it,’ she said.

Green spokesman Nick Dyer explained in a statement: newsweek: ‘Democrats have consistently targeted Congressman Green since he was sworn in on January 3. Jimmy Gomez and more than 70 other Democrats have a bill to expel him. Not to mention, Democrats are destroying Congressional norms and voting to remove (Green) from committees.’

“Member of Congress Marjorie Taylor Green has previously supported social media posts calling for political violence against members of the House of Congress and former President Barack Obama,” Gomez said in a statement earlier this year.

Gomez continued, “His presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and employees who serve our government.”

‘And it is with their safety in mind, as well as the safety of institutions and public servants across our country, that I urge my House colleagues to support my motion to immediately remove Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body. I call.’
