Congressman Biggs' Update on Efforts to Remove Pelosi as Speaker of the House
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the House Republican Conference discussed Congressman Andy Biggs’s and the House Freedom Caucus’s proposal to Vacate the Chair to remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. Congressman Biggs issued the following statement:
“Weeks ago, I, along with the membership of the House Freedom Caucus, began an effort to vacate the chair to remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. Speaker Pelosi has abused her position, demonized millions of Americans, and extracted political revenge on President Trump by impeaching him. Millions of Americans, including many of our constituents, agree that Nancy Pelosi must go now.
“Thanks to our efforts, House Republican leadership allowed us to bring this proposal for debate within our conference. I have spent many hours over the last few weeks, strategizing with my colleagues and talking to them about the necessity of taking this action. Most Republican Members of Congress wholeheartedly agree that Nancy Pelosi must be removed as Speaker of the House.
“I will not stop fighting to remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has already indicated that he might use the Freedom Caucus’s motion to respond in the event that Speaker Pelosi abuses her position yet again to impeach President Trump or Attorney General Barr over the Supreme Court vacancy. I will continue to work with our Republican leadership and our conference to ensure that Nancy Pelosi is no longer able to destroy our republic as Speaker of the House.”
Congressman Andy Biggs is a second-term Representative from Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District, representing parts of Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and Queen Creek.
