According to The New York Times, Greene handed out a five-page memo to her Republican colleagues laying out her arguments as to why Johnson should be ousted.

"If these actions by the leader of our conference continue, then we are not a Republican Party - we are a uniparty that is hellbent on remaining on the path of self-inflicted destruction," she wrote.

"I will neither support nor take part in any of that, and neither will the people we represent."

Greene claimed that Johnson is working with Democrats to support "Fully funding abortion, the trans agenda, the climate agenda, foreign wars, Biden's border crisis" and funding for Ukraine, which she said "is not 'ensuring liberty, opportunity, and security for all Americans.'"

She also claimed that Johnson "could have stopped" the federal prosecution of Donald Trump, who is facing criminal charges for attempting to overturn the 2020 election and mishandling classified documents, which she described as a "death sentence" for the former president.

"If we win the House this fall, it will only be because President Trump is on the ballot, not because we have earned it," Greene added.

MTG has yet to signal if she will make her motion to vacate privileged, which would force the House to a vote.
