With Republican House Minority leader McCarthy twisting in the wind…..
And Democrats vowing to strip her of ALL her House committee spots….
And the medias on fire against her….
The Junior House member from Georgia has told some fellow House members (in private) she was sorry for her past comments and actions…
She received applause from the group in the room…
She still has not come outside the same publicly….
We’ll see what Democrats do …..
Inside the Republican caucus meeting Wednesday night, Greene rose to express contrition for some of her most outré comments made on social media — including questioning the 9/11 terrorist attacks, blaming a space beam controlled by a Jewish cabal for a deadly wildfire and doubting school shootings, according to Republicans in the room.
She also, according to Republicans in the room, apologized for putting her colleagues in a difficult spot — prompting a round of applause. Her remarks came after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in a statement that her various remarks “do not represent the values or beliefs of the House Republican Conference.”
“I made this clear to Marjorie when we met,” he said, referring to a Tuesday night meeting. “I also made clear that as a member of Congress we have a responsibility to hold ourselves to a higher standard than how she presented herself as a private citizen. Her past comments now have much greater meaning. Marjorie recognized this in our conversation. I hold her to her word, as well as her actions going forward.”
While Greene expressed contrition in the private meeting Wednesday, she has yet to publicly apologize but instead has signaled an aversion to surrender.
“I won’t back down. I’ll never apologize. And I’ll always keep fighting for the people,” she tweeted Saturday.
On a podcast with right-wing provocateur Dinesh D’Souza published Wednesday, Greene took aim at GOP leaders for not standing more squarely behind her: “It’s me this week, and it’ll be someone else next week, and our leaders are too weak to stand up against it. That is why Republican voters will not vote for them anymore.”….
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) issued a statement late Wednesday condemning Greene’s words but stopped short of taking any action against her….
