“Her very presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and staff who serve our government, and it is with their safety in mind, as well as the security of institutions and public servants across our country,” Gomez said in the announcement

Gomez pointed to several conspiracy theories and threats Greene has made in the past, the most recent discovery being Greene supporting posts on Facebook that called for violence against prominent Democratic leaders, as first reported by CNN's KFile.


Greene has also expressed support for some conspiracy theories online, including QAnon.

A video surfaced Wednesday that shows Greene taunting David Hogg, a survivor of the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Capitol Hill and calling him a "coward." 

“Such advocacy for extremism and sedition not only demands her immediate expulsion from Congress, but it also merits strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthyKevin McCarthyPelosi, leaders seek to squelch Omar controversy with rare joint statement Omar: I wasn't equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries Schumer bemoans number of Republicans who believe Trump will be reinstated: 'A glaring warning' MORE and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellMaher goes after Manchin: 'Most powerful Republican in the Senate' Supreme Court confounding its partisan critics Why the Democrats need Joe Manchin MORE,” Gomez said. 

Greene already stirred trouble in the House when she refused to put on a mask. Whenever she complied, she wore a mask that said “censorship” on it.
