House Freedom Caucus Ousts Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Amid Controversy

Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican Representative from Georgia and a staunch ally of former President Donald Trump, has been officially removed from the House Freedom Caucus.
Representative Ken Buck of Colorado confirmed the decision to oust Greene, who cited her repeated “attacks” on fellow GOP colleagues as the primary reason behind the group’s move.

Despite reports of a vote on June 23 to expel Greene due to her altercation with Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado and her vocal support for Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s debt-ceiling deal with President Joe Biden, confusion persisted over Greene’s status.
Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry of Pennsylvania had declined to comment on the matter, and Greene claimed ignorance about any vote against her.
