Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) said Sunday that Republican leadership should take a stand against “totally unacceptable” behavior from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), and suggested it could be appropriate to strip her of her committee assignments.
Portman, who recently announced he will not seek reelection in 2022, was asked in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” if he supports punishing Greene. The House Republican and QAnon conspiracy theorist has been under fire over past social media activity, in which she appeared to endorse violence against prominent Democrats. She also expressed support for conspiracy theories purporting that several mass shootings had been staged, and was seen on video harassing a school shooting survivor.
