The Newest Member of The Squad, Rep Cori Bush pushes the ouster of GOP Reps who questioned the election results. My prediction is that she will fall flat on her face like all Squad members seem to do. People might like you if you are a little bit crazy but not so much when you are totally insane. In order to remove them from the House requires a 2/3rds majority.
Democrats control 222 seats, therefore to expel a member 68 Republicans would have to go along with it. Bush claims members of the House instigated the violence at the Capitol. The laughable part of her claim is that GOP members tried to undo a crooked election. The Democrats tried for four years to overthrow the 2016 election. Do you suppose Bush realizes just how pathetic she looks?
“Tomorrow, I’m introducing my resolution to expel the members of Congress who tried to overturn the election and incited a white supremacist coup attempt that has left people dead, violated the 14th Amendment”.
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, referenced by Bush and in Pelosi’s press release, explicitly states that “No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
But, here’s the rub. They didn’t engage in rebellion, they voted in the constitutionally approved way. And to remove a Senator like Cruz, 18 GOP Senators would have to vote to expel him and the only ones who would do such a thing would be Mitt Romney and possibly Lisa Murkowski and Ben Sasse. Hopefully, all three will be voted out of office.

We can’t have unity without accountability.
Bush swiftly announced her intention to take action against Republican members of Congress following the chaos that erupted at the U.S. Capitol last week, accusing her GOP colleagues of inciting a “domestic terror attack through their attempts to overturn the election”:

St. Louis, I hear you loud and clear. We’re in this fight together.
Other members of the far-left “Squad” have openly embraced taking action, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who called on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarty (R-CA) to resign for what she claims is their role in inciting the chaos that occurred in the nation’s capital on January 6.
