Glenn Ivey Views House Passage of Foreign Aid as ‘Positive Development’ for Johnson Despite Removal Concerns

Rep. Glenn Ivey (D-Md.) suggested on Sunday that the recent bipartisan passage of a foreign aid bill in the House could potentially benefit Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), who is facing a threat to his Speakership from some members of his GOP conference.

During an appearance on NewsNation’s “The Hill Sunday with Chris Stirewalt,” Ivey was asked whether he and other Democrats would support Johnson against a motion to vacate.

While he didn’t reveal his stance, Ivey acknowledged the progress made on Saturday and highlighted the collaboration between Speaker Johnson and Democratic leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) on important bipartisan legislation.

Last month, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) introduced a motion to vacate Johnson’s Speakership, citing concerns over his handling of Ukraine aid and government spending. The tension escalated when Reps. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) expressed their support for the motion.

However, it remains uncertain whether Greene will proceed with the ouster motion, as she has not yet brought it to the floor for a vote or specified the conditions that might prompt her to do so.

The House passed a foreign aid package on Saturday, including allocations for Ukraine, Israel, and global humanitarian aid, among other national security measures.

Ivey expressed optimism that this bipartisan achievement could pave the way for further collaboration going forward, noting that many important tasks in Congress have been accomplished through bipartisan efforts.

The foreign aid bill will now advance to the Senate, where it is expected to be voted on later this week.
