Exclusive: Steve King Republican House Members Considering Forcibly Removing Paul Ryan from Speakership
Ed. Rep. Paul Ryan is one of a number of D.C. liberals pretending to be conservative Republicans. His exit from the House will be welcome.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told Breitbart News Tonight
earlier this week that House Republicans are considering forcibly removing
House Speaker Paul Ryan from the speakership via a “motion to vacate the chair”
over Ryan’s efforts to undermine President Donald Trump’s agenda.

“It’s kind of odd
that he has as much power as he has,” King said of Ryan during the appearance
on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel with Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak on
Breitbart News Tonight earlier this week. “But I do predict, and it is
happening, that that power is diminishing. I also have got information that
there are–I’ll say ‘members’–I say that plurally, with knowledge, that are
considering introducing a motion to vacate the chair. If they do that, that
will throw this place into a tizzy and force the kind of election for a Speaker
that may bring out someone who is a lot stronger on this.”
A motion to vacate
the chair would call a referendum on Ryan’s speakership to the floor. It could
force a vote on whether Republicans want Ryan to remain as speaker as a lame
duck for the rest of the year, especially after all these failures in strategy
and his efforts to undermine the president with an amnesty bill that the
president opposes and said he “certainly” would never sign.
falsely, to House Republican members recently in a conference meeting that the
president did support the Ryan amnesty bill–something the president confirmed
on Fox and Friends on Friday morning was not true. The president opposes the
bill and Ryan’s continued claims that Trump did back the bill are now proven to
The fact that sitting
House Republican members are contemplating calling forth a motion to vacate the
chair–the same mechanism forced Ryan’s predecessor, now former House Speaker
John Boehner into early retirement–is remarkable. He announced earlier this
year he intends to serve out the rest of this term in Congress then retire at
the beginning of next year. That thrust Ryan into a lame duck status in the
speakership, meaning he has lost a significant amount of influence.

“From the time that
Paul Ryan announced that he would be retiring at the end of this Congress, his
juice has been diminished day by day by day,” King said on Breitbart News
Tonight. “It’s not a personal thing. It’s just a function of how things work.
He has less power, less influence, and yet he’s still leading us into this
amnesty piece. People are acting like he’s the Speaker of the House who will be
deciding who can chair which committees, who can be seated on which committees,
and whose bills move forward in the next Congress. But that will not be the

moderate office whose member sits on the House Appropriations Committee
confirmed to Breitbart News that if offered the opportunity again to vote on
whether Ryan should remain Speaker, that the member would vote against it.
Conservatives across the party have been calling for Ryan to step aside now
from the Speakership, with Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) saying in a previous
Breitbart News radio interview that Ryan should not be allowed to stay as a
lame duck speaker–especially while he’s opposing the president’s agenda on
immigration, trade, national security, and more.
