Marjorie Taylor Greene must be expelled from GOP conference for Holocaust comments, says Adam Kinzinger
  • Adam Kinzinger says Greene should be expelled from the GOP conference for her Holocaust comments.
  • "What we can do ... is take a stand and say you don't belong in our conference," Kinzinger said.
  • More than 100,000 people have signed a petition calling for Greene's expulsion from the House.
Marjorie Taylor Greene should be expelled from the GOP conference because of her comments comparing mask mandates to the Holocaust, her Republican colleague Adam Kinzinger said.

Rep. Kinzinger said that their party should "take a stand" and "say you don't belong" at the conference.

"You can't stop somebody from calling themselves a Republican," Kinzinger told a Politico Live event on Tuesday.

Kinzinger has vocally criticized former President Donald Trump for his role in the Capitol riot on January 6, and earlier in May compared the Republican party to a "sinking" Titanic ship following Rep. Liz Cheney's expulsion from House leadership.

"What we can do as a party is take a stand and say you don't belong in our conference," he said.

"That's what I think we should do. I think we should kick her out of the conference, prevent her from coming to conference meetings, benefiting from conference materials."

... Kinzinger said that while he hadn't yet spoken to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy about Greene, "we're going to be looking at what we can do" to expel her.

"[McCarthy] obviously has the ability to remove people from leadership or remove people from the conference," Kinzinger said, adding "I hope he does."
