U.S. Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) on Friday introduced a resolution to expel Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) from Congress.
The resolution, which has over 70 co-sponsors, cites her "repeated endorsements of sedition, domestic terrorism, and political violence."
Congressman Gomez told his colleagues from the floor of the House, "I take no joy in introducing this resolution. But any member who incites political violence and threatens our lives must be expelled."
While drawing a line in the sand, the resolution would need Republican backing as well. A two-thirds majority is needed for it to pass and successfully remove the "QAnon Congresswoman," and it is doubtful enough conservatives would cross party lines to kick her out of Congress.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi weighed in during her daily press briefing, saying: "I believe some of my Republican colleagues, and one in particular, wish harm upon this legislative body. And I'm not saying this for shock value. It's the conclusion I drew after a member of Congress advocated violence against our peers, the Speaker and our government."
Greene has endorsed Pelosi's execution.
