    Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) supports retaliating against Republicans who oppose him, he reportedly told high-dollar donors at the swanky Four Seasons in Washington. Johnson signaled to the high-powered group at a fundraiser on Sunday that he would support kicking members who blocked his coalition government’s legislative agenda off committees. He also said he is in favor of changing House rules – such as rules on the motion to vacate – at the end of this Congress
  • Exclusive – Byron Donalds: ‘Incredibly Disappointing’ Johnson Violated Hastert Rule on Passage of Ukraine Aid

    WASHINGTON, DC–Reps. Byron Donalds (R-FL) and Chip Roy (R-TX) slammed Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) for violating the Hastert Rule after the $60 billion Ukraine aid bill passed on Saturday without a majority of Republican support. The longstanding rule directs that a Republican speaker will only put legislation up for a floor vote if a majority of the GOP conference supports it. The rule is meant to prevent a GOP speaker from colluding with Democrats to pass bills. But most of the GOP did not back the Ukraine bill.

    House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) made history by relying on minority party votes to advance a foreign aid plan, marking a first in recorded history. This decision, occurring just before midnight on Thursday, has sparked controversy among Republicans, with some questioning Johnson's loyalty to the party. The move has raised concerns about party unity and the potential implications for future legislative decisions.

    Utah Sen. Mitt Romney revealed the two GOP presidential candidates he refuses to support under any circumstance in a “Person to Person” interview that aired on CBS News. Romney responded that he would support “anybody” except former President Donald Trump and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy when asked by Norah O’Donnell if there was anybody he liked in the Republican field. “You know, I would uh, I’d be happy to support virtually any one of the Republicans. Maybe not Vivek. But uh, but the others that are running would be acceptable to me, and I’d be happy to vote for them,” Romney...

    The Hill ^ | 10/24/23 12:16 PM ET | Emily Brooks and Mychael Schnell
    House Republicans nominated House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) for Speaker on Tuesday, making him the third GOP lawmaker who will attempt to get 217 votes to secure the gavel. The conference selected Emmer — the No. 3 House Republican — for the position in a secret ballot during an internal election that lasted three hours, choosing him over six other candidates vying for the job. Two Republicans withdrew their names from the race before voting began. Emmer, 62, will now take his nomination to the House floor, where he will have to muster enough votes to win the gavel...

    House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) is attempting to undermine Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) bid for the Speakership gavel after voting for him on the first ballot, sources familiar with the matter have confirmed to Breitbart News. CNN’s Annie Grayer noted on X that the majority leader would not commit to helping Jordan secure the 17 outstanding votes he needs for the top House job. This is despite Jordan requesting his aid, as the House has not had a Speaker since now-former Speaker Kevin McCarthy was removed on October 3. Sources on Capitol Hill have confirmed Grayer’s reporting...

    Liberal Republicans and Democrats and RINO Republicans are working together to expel Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL) from the U.S. House in the wake of Tuesday’s successful ouster of Kevin McCarthy from his role as Speaker of the House, according to an exclusive interview Rep. Lauren Boebert gave National File on Thursday. “The threat to expel Matt Gaetz is definitely real,” Boebert told National File’s publisher Noel Fritsch via telephone. “The next House Speaker needs to make blocking any expulsion vote of Gaetz a primary piece of their platform for the gavel,” Boebert said. “I fully support Matt’s move to use...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — On the brink of a federal government shutdown, Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced a dramatic pivot Saturday, trying to push a 45-day funding bill through the House with Democratic help — a move that could keep government open but most certainly risks his job.Republican lawmakers met behind closed doors early at the Capitol with hours to go before the midnight deadline needed to fund government operations or face a disruptive federal closure.The new approach would leave behind aid to Ukraine, a White House priority opposed by a growing number of GOP lawmakers, but the plan would increase federal...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Saturday backtracked and said he will keep the $300 million of Ukraine aid in the Pentagon funding bill. snip McCarthy on Saturday said he will keep Ukraine aid in the Pentagon appropriations bill just one day after vowing to strip the funding. In another article, the Hill said: “McCarthy told reporters that he expects Greene to oppose the procedural vote to advance the four spending bills because of the inclusion of Ukraine aid.” Congressman Byron Donalds: “A lot of my colleagues, Freedom Caucus members, etc., need to be very concerned about the fact that we...

    Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) became choked up on Wednesday as he spoke about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at a ceremony for the unveiling of Pelosi’s speaker’s portrait. Boehner, who is known for crying, was speaking during the event about his and his family’s appreciation for Pelosi, whom he succeeded in 2011, when Boehner became tearful. "Madam Speaker, I have to say, my girls told me, ‘Tell the speaker how much we admire her,’” Boehner said as tears filled his eyes and the crowd applauded.

    Weak GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this morning from Poland. The Republican House leader called for arming Ukraine. Kevin McCarthy then discussed the GOP plan if the party takes control of Congress next year. _________________ McCarthy said nothing about election integrity. He would not commit to the impeachment of Joe Biden but will “look where the evidence leads us.” He said nothing about the DOJ-FBI apparatus that targets Trump and his supporters and sets up ordinary Americans in their evil schemes. He said nothing about the political prisoners held in jail today after...

    Political writer Peter Schweizer’s latest book reportedly accuses 20 current and former GOP members of having essentially sold out to China. Released late last month, “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win” has attracted attention thus far mainly for its bombshells about President Joe Biden and his extremely wealthy family. But also contained within the book is a treasure trove of bombshells about elected Republicans, ranging from current Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell to former President George H.W. Bush. Regarding McConnell, Schweizer reportedly writes that the Senate leader and his wife both “enjoy some of the deepest and...

    House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has conceded that January 6th was a 'violent insurrection,' saying he agreed with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's description of that day. 'No one would disagree with that,' McCarthy told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. His clarification comes after McCarthy was mocked by Democrats for walking away from an ABC News reporter who was asking him about the Republican National Committee censure of Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney for serving on the committee investigating the insurrection.

    Allies of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) are starting to make a concerted effort to boost her reelection bid as she wages the fight of her political life against a Trump-backed challenger. Former President George W. Bush will hold a fundraiser for Cheney next month, as reported Wednesday, handing her a boost with the traditional wing of the GOP. But backers say they expect more Republicans aligned with Cheney's brand of conservatism to get off the bench to help her in a primary knife fight against attorney and erstwhile ally Harriet Hageman. "I think it's going to be much more than...

    We could capture all the political problems our country faces today with a single question – where have all the conservative leaders of the past two decades gone? I’m thinking of a select few: George W. Bush, John Boehner, Paul Ryan, and Jeff Flake. They all have a couple of things in common. When in office, they were viewed as nice guy conservatives with whom the other party could negotiate. Since having left office, they have all been absent from the public scene when the country most needs them. Boehner is happily hawking marijuana and writing books. When he appears...

    Former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that a string of mass shootings had become an embarrassment to America. Anchor Dana Bash asked, “47 mass shootings in the United States in just over the last month. And I know you know this, polls show the vast majority of Americans support at least some new gun restrictions. When you were speaker, there were 20 first-graders killed in Newtown, Connecticut. Looking back, do you regret not passing laws then, and do you to see Republicans come to the table now at least to...

    During an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, Boehner focused on what he thinks is the importance of reaching across the aisle. The segment began with CNN’s Dana Bash claiming there have been “47 mass shootings in the United States in just over the last month.” Bash provided no substantiation for the claim of 47 mass shootings. Instead, she just looked at Boehner and said, “Polls show that vast majorities of Americans support at least some new gun restrictions.” She then noted that gun control was not passed after Sandy Hook when Boehner was Speaker, and asked if gun...
