House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is reportedly leaning toward removing QAnon-loving Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) from her committee assignments because he fears having a floor vote could do real damage to his party.

Politico's Rachel Bade appeared on CNN Wednesday and explained that McCarthy met with Greene on Tuesday and asked her to publicly denounce QAnon and apologize for spreading false information about school shootings being staged false flag operations.

Greene apparently didn't agree, Bade explained, because McCarthy held a late-night meeting with lieutenants to talk about removing Greene from the House Education and Labor Committee.

"The consensus in the room, according to my reporting, is everybody agreed that she's probably going to have to come off Education and Labor," Bade said.

She said that the Republicans then discussed going to Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and making a deal with him to avoid a floor vote on removing Greene.

"The feeling in the meeting was that a floor vote, and forcing Republicans to take a yes or a no vote on removing a colleague, would be catastrophic on the campaign trail," she said. "They could either get hit from the base or, if they're from a swing district, they could be labeled as someone protecting a QAnon conspiracy theorist."
