Earlier today, we reported that U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) planned to introduce a resolution to expel U.S. House Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) from Congress for inciting rhetoric.
Greene has not stopped lobbying for her position either, retweeting a number of different articles written on her proposal and recently, tagging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a tweet.
“@SpeakerPelosi you impeached President Trump after you said he incited violence by saying ‘march peacefully’ to the Capitol,” Greene pointed out.
Then, Greene asked, “So I can expect a yes vote from you on my resolution to expel @RepMaxineWaters for inciting violence, riots, and abusing power threatening a jury, right?”
Greene also shared a Gateway Pundit article reporting on the comments made by Waters at the Minnesota protest.
In 2018, Pelosi rebuked Waters over her call for supporters to publicly confront Trump administration officials over immigration policy.
“In the crucial months ahead, we must strive to make America beautiful again. Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea,” Pelosi tweeted, while sharing a CNN article about Waters’ comments.

At the time, Pelosi also called a push among Waters and other Democrats to impeach then-President Donald Trump “divisive.”
The Democrats were in the minority in both the House and Senate, although Pelosi ended up impeaching Trump twice after they gained the majority.
