Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is attempting to remove fellow Republican Speaker Mike Johnson after the GOP-led House on Friday morning passed a $1.2 trillion spending bill with more Democrat than GOP votes.

The bill was to avert a government shutdown before midnight, and the measure now heads to the Democrat-led Senate. 

Greene, the conservative firebrand, filed what is know as a motion to vacate, which will set up a vote on whether Johnson, just several month on the job, should be removed.
