Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said Sunday that he intends to file a motion to oust House Speaker Kevin McCarthy this week after Congress voted to avert a shutdown hours before the deadline.
"I do intend to file a motion to vacate against Speaker McCarthy this week," Gaetz said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think we need to rip off the band aid. I think we need to move on with new leadership that can be trustworthy."
Gaetz also confirmed that he'll soon file a motion to vacate the speakership in an appearance on ABC News' "This Week," after the Senate and House on Saturday night voted to pass a short-term bill to keep the government funded through Nov. 17.
In response to Gaetz' announcement, McCarthy said, “That’s nothing new ... He’s tried to do that from the moment I ran for office ... Yes, I’ll survive. You know, this is personal with Matt.”

Someone who is not owned by the Pentagram/Deep State/GloboHomo, please. There are some.
Opsec is dead.
Whatever it takes to pour molasses onto the gears of globohomo.
Yeah, right. /s
Marxist Dems will fight Gaetz to keep McCarthy.
Republicans fighting Republicans
Democrats must be loving this
Going to sacrifice one pawn to save another.
Gaetz would make a fine Speaker of the House, please and thank you.
I always said I couldn't be on the Board of Directors because I would jump over the table and strangle someone.
I like his demeanor...and more folks like him than dislike.
Everyone forgets...who would replace him and what could another do better.
As it stands....with the Dems in the Senate and the Whitehouse...he works..."against all odds."
what exactly is needed to oust McCarthy? And hasn’t this Rat has taken precautions against ouster?
I’m praying for strength and wisdom for Gaetz.
He’s the only one in Congress whom I believe wants to help taxpayers and preserve our Republic.
Jim Jordan is my rep. I loved him once, but now he’s all talk, just like the rest of them.
Exhibit A in why America is collapsing, with an enormous assist from Republicans.
Jacqui Heinrich @JacquiHeinrich House GOP members are seeking to quickly expel Gaetz if the ethics report comes back with findings of guilt.
Following threats to vacate McCarthy, one tells me “No one can stand him at this point. A smart guy without morals.”
The 21 “rebels” as the MSM and GOPe refers to them are those who expected McCarthy to hold to his promises and he has not.
This is far bigger than this CR for the budget.... there is a laundry list of pledges made that fell by the wayside once again and if you listen to those who are upset they sounds a lot like the average freeper in their concerns.
The media always paints a picture of “chaos” with conservatives in congress to deflect from how broken the system is. They laud Pelosi and her iron-grip on her caucus as if it were a virtue ignoring the exploding deficits and spending that is crushing poor Americans more than anyone through inflation.
This is politics..... McCarthy will try to personalize it but if you listen to the complaints of Gaetz, Burchette, Green, Biggs, and others it has very little to do with personality and more to do with the future of my children and grandchildren.
The problem is he doesn’t understand conservatism.
Conservatism is opposition to government intrusion into everyday life.
He embraces the non conservative philosophy that he comes to Washington to “get things done.” No. That’s not conservatism. Conservatism is NOT doing things. It is reducing government activity. Of any sort.
It seems like even MTG is sick of Gatz’s showboating
Getting rid of the debt ceiling in June is NOT doing a good job.
