‘Little B***h’: MAGA’s 2 Leading Ladies Get Catty over Impeachment Articles

'President Biden has caused a national security crisis and is endangering the lives of the American people... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) For all their common traits, Reps. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.—both recent divorcees, second-term populist lawmakers and fearlessly devoted conservative females—seem to be developing an intra-party rivalry that came to a head during the motion Wednesday to censure Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

It ended with Greene calling Boebert a “little bitch” and Boebert walking away on the House floor saying “OK, Marjorie, we’re through,” the Daily Beast reported.

Despite the contentious intra-party ruckus over a push from Boebert for the U.S. House to impeach President Joe Biden, Republicans reportedly reached a compromise that keeps the issue alive while avoiding what critics called a premature move to force a vote.

Boebert’s “privileged motion”, which called for Biden’s impeachment over his disastrous and deadly mishandling of an illegal immigration crisis created by regime open border policies, circumvented normal party procedure and received stiff blowback from some Republicans.

At the same time, Greene, who had blasted Boebert’s impeachment move, on Wednesday indicated she was pursuing a similar fast-track vote to impeach embattled FBI Director Chris Wray.

In response to the tumult caused by Boebert’s motion and a potentially calamitous vote that could have seen enough Republican lawmakers side with Democrats to kill it, the House Rules Committee late Wednesday night crafted a legislative escape hatch, referring Boebert’s impeachment resolution to the House Homeland Security and Judiciary committees.

“Speaker McCarthy and House Republicans are committed to fulfilling regular order and undertaking investigations prior to taking up the serious constitutional duty of impeachment,” Rules Committee Chairman Tom Cole, R-Okla., said during the hearing.

The committee’s referral is slated for a floor vote on Thursday, House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., indicated. 

Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who had actively encouraged GOP lawmakers to vote against the impeachment, huddled with Boebert prior to the rules committee hearing and gained her agreement to support the referral.

“I think it’s best for everybody,” McCarthy offered as explanation for sidetracking the impeachment resolution, according to NBC News.

Boebert reportedly agreed to support letting the process play out in committees, as long as the end result remained the same. 

“A sophomore in Congress just forced the House of Representatives to do their job,” Boebert said Wednesday. “I’m fine with the process taking place…if we send this to that committee, then yes, we are forcing the committee to do the work of impeaching Joe Biden.”

Boebert’s resolution to impeach Biden accused the embattled president of “using the powers of his high office” to have “knowingly presided over an executive branch that has continuously, overtly, and consistently violated Federal immigration law by pursuing an aggressive, open-borders agenda by purposefully and knowingly releasing more than 2,000,000 illegal aliens into the interior of the United States without the intention or ability to ensure that they appear in immigration court to face asylum or deportation proceedings.”

The resolution accused Biden of abandoning his duties and as a result, “President Biden has endangered the security of the United States and the health and safety of the American people. President Biden has caused a national security crisis and is endangering the lives of the American people.”

Greene, who has introduced multiple impeachment resolutions targeting Biden and several regime officials, but without the fast-track tactic used by Boebert, reportedly trashed her colleague from the House floor Wednesday. Greene accused Boebert of copying her previous impeachment resolutions, calling her “a little bitch” during a heated argument that played out in public.

“I’ve donated to you, I’ve defended you. But you’ve been nothing but a little bitch to me,” Greene reportedly told Boebert. “And you copied my articles of impeachment after I asked you to cosponsor them.”

The GOP spat, in addition to shuffling Boebert’s impeachment resolution to committees for further review and investigation, ironically appeared to prompt Greene into copying the copycat. She announced Wednesday night her plans to push for the impeachment of Biden’s FBI chief using the same type of privileged motion employed by Boebert.

“Wray is a bad cop hiding Joe Biden’s crimes and must be held accountable,” Greene wrote. “I won’t tolerate this level of disrespect and pure criminal corruption.”

“Christopher Wray spit in our faces and disrespected our Oversight Committee and our Chairman Comer by forcing us to see redacted versions of UNCLASSIFIED 1023 forms that gave proof of then VP Joe Biden taking a $5 million dollar bribe,” Greene wrote. “I’m turning my Articles of Impeachment on Wray into a privileged resolution.”
