Rep. Cole Indicates Strong Support for Johnson Removal Concerns

On Sunday, Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) downplayed the threat of House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) facing removal from his position, characterizing it as a concern held by only a “relatively small number” of GOP lawmakers.

During an interview on CBS News’s “Face The Nation,” Cole expressed skepticism about the seriousness of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) motion to vacate the Speaker’s position, indicating that he does not view it as a serious threat to Johnson’s leadership.

Cole drew a comparison to a previous attempt to oust former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), noting that only eight Republicans joined with Democrats in that instance. He emphasized that he does not perceive unified Democratic support against Johnson.

Despite potential discontent among some House conservatives over recent legislative decisions, Cole highlighted Johnson’s accomplishments and widespread support among Republicans. He praised Johnson’s effectiveness and leadership, suggesting that his reservoir of goodwill within the party is substantial.

Greene initially introduced the motion to vacate the Speakership last month following the passage of a spending package to avert a government shutdown.

While tensions over issues like Ukraine aid have reignited the threat, Greene asserted that the motion is forthcoming regardless of Johnson’s actions and called for his resignation.

She did not specify the exact circumstances that could prompt her to bring the motion to the floor but insisted that Johnson’s Speakership is effectively over, urging him to step down.
