On Monday evening, Gaetz (R-Fla.) ‍introduced ⁢a motion, which will now come down to the House of Representatives’ ⁣vote on whether⁣ or not the top House leadership post⁤ should have a new⁢ leader⁣ in place.

Due to House rules, the motion⁢ must‌ be ⁤voted on within the next ‌two‌ legislative⁢ days.

In order for him ⁣to retain his position, McCarthy (R-Calif.) must collect ⁢a majority of ‍the⁤ votes. Currently,‌ the ⁤House has a Republican majority. However, it is only a five-seat majority. It is⁢ not ‌yet known ⁣where the ​votes will fall.

At least one member ⁣of‍ the ​House, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ⁣(D-N.Y.), has voiced that she plans to vote to⁤ remove McCarthy.

Gaetz has been very vocal ‌regarding ‍his disapproval of McCarthy.

He has consistently criticized the speaker’s handing of spending and ⁢the budget and also ⁢stated that the California native has “at⁤ one point or another… lied to⁢ all of us.”

“Members of ‌the ⁢Republican Party might vote differently on ​a motion to vacate if they‍ heard ‍what the speaker had to share​ with us about his ​secret side deal with Joe Biden on ‌Ukraine. I’ll be listening,” Gaetz said.

During the past two weeks, Gatez made it clear that if McCarthy passes a short-term government funding bill to ​the floor, he would try to⁤ oust the speaker.

The bill​ was passed ⁣on Saturday night with the help of Democrats.

The Floridian stayed true to⁤ his ‌word and ‍filed the motion to vacate two days later.

No Speaker of the ⁢House has ever successfully been ‍removed this way in the⁣ past. Although, the motion has been⁤ attempted‌ a handful⁢ of times.
