House Democrats call on McCarthy to 'take immediate action' to address Greene's behavior
The group chose to take this step after Greene spoke as a warmup act for former President Donald Trump at his rally in Ohio last weekend, an aide familiar with the letter's origins told CNN. Greene, without evidence, repeatedly claimed Trump won the 2020 election and viciously attacked Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

Greene described Ocasio-Cortez as the "little communist from New York City," and nodded in agreement with the crowd when they started shouting "lock her up."

Ocasio-Cortez has signed on to the letter, which is led by Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington and is signed by a diverse list of House Democrats, including fellow progressives like Reps. Cori Bush of Missouri and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and more moderate members like Reps. Gerald Connolly of Virginia and Brendan Boyle of Pennsylvania.

The Democrats write that they believe Greene's conduct has reached an "unacceptable level," referring to several incidents from her short tenure in Congress, including Greene's posting of an anti-transgender sign outside of her office, directly across the hall from another lawmaker who has a transgender child.

"Rep. Greene's conduct does not comport with what we expect from a member of the House of Representatives," the letter reads. "Moreover, we are extremely concerned that her conduct is creating an unsafe work environment for members, and that her actions could lead to violence against members of Congress."


... In reality, McCarthy doesn't have many options. Greene already lost her committee posts, which is the most common form of discipline in the House. He could support a censure resolution or isolate her from the GOP conference by preventing her from attending conference meetings. Both moves are unlikely given Greene's popularity with GOP base voters. And as evidenced by her appearance at Trump's rally -- which he held for a primary challenger to one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach him -- Greene has strong support from the former President. McCarthy has repeatedly shown an unwillingness to cross the base of the party or Trump.
