Newly elected Congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) made a big name for herself after she contended that the infamous Parkland school shooting in 2018 was staged.

Since last week, rhetoric has spread of House Democrats making a push to expel Greene from Congress. This prompted Florida Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) to co-sponsor a bill to expel Greene from the committees she sits on (House Education & Labor Committee and the House Budget Committee).

If the resolution goes to a vote, it is unlikely Republicans will back the cause.

Fellow Representative, Schultz, who resides very close to Parkland stated that Greene, "cannot be entrusted to make education and budget policy."

Deutch who represents Parkland defined this as a "line-in-the-sand moment" for the Republican Party.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is expected to speak with Greene, but the party is not expected to inflict any repercussions.

Greene's presence does raise an important question of, where will the post-Trump Republican Party go?  Will it be won over by those among the likes of Greene, or go back to the Liz Cheney (R) establishment?
