Some House Republicans Are Reportedly Plotting To Oust Matt Gaetz
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) could soon face a push for his own ouster, according to CNN and Fox News.
The Florida congressman said Sunday that he will attempt to strip House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of his gavel after the California Republican relied on Democrats to pass stopgap spending legislation that narrowly averted a government shutdown over the weekend.
Gaetz’s threat, which he has been repeating for weeks, has apparently rankled some of his colleagues.
“We want him out,” one unnamed Republican lawmaker told CNN in a report published Sunday.
