On Wednesday, California congressman Jimmy Gomez announced plans of a resolution calling for Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene to be expelled from the House of Representatives, the Boston Globe reports.

Per the Independent, the move comes as a result of Greene's alleged public support of social media comments calling for violence against Democratic politicians.

Gomez, who represents parts of Los Angeles, said the following in a news release:

“As if it weren’t enough to amplify conspiracy theories that the September 11 attacks were an inside job and the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was staged, a string of recent media reports has now confirmed that Congresswoman.

“Marjorie Taylor Greene had previously supported social media posts calling for political violence against the Speaker of the House, members of Congress, and former President Barack Obama.

“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.”

CNN reported on Tuesday that before Greene took office, she appears to have liked comments on social media about a “bullet to the head” for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and said the “stage is being set” to hang former president Barack Obama as well as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The publication also stated that she liked a post about executing “deep state” FBI agents.

Ms. Clinton supported calls to have the Republican congresswoman removed on Wednesday, writing on Twitter: “This woman should be on a watch list. Not in Congress.”

Greene responded in a statement that “fake News CNN is writing yet another hit piece on me.”

“Over the years, I’ve had teams of people manage my pages. Many posts have been liked. Many posts have been shared. Some did not represent my views,” she wrote. “I will never back down to the enemy of the American people and neither should you.”

According to the Associated Press, Rep. Greene, who only started her term as congresswoman this year, is a supporter of the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory and has been accused of making racist comments.
