Former RNC Chair Blames Marjorie Taylor Greene For Causing 'Chaos' For Speaker

Former Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus blamed Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and other fringe members of the GOP caucus for causing “chaos” for Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA).

During a Sunday panel discussion on ABC’s This Week program, Priebus reacted to Rep. Mike Gallagher’s (R-WI) decision to retire early.

“Here’s the deal, though, and it’s happening all over the country,” Priebus said of gerrymandering. “435 House seats, only 20 are in play. I mean, what that means is that they’re almost all really, really Democrat, or all really, really Republican.”

“Now, second problem, division is pure profit,” he continued. “The two top-grossing probably members of the House or the Senate is AOC and Marjorie Taylor Greene because the division is pure profit.”

Priebus insisted Republicans did not hold a “real majority” in the House.

“I mean, you have 8 or 10 people that run around the Capitol and cause chaos for the speaker,” he said. “And last thing, the speaker rules just create a very weak speaker, the by rule.”

“All of that together creates this chaos,” he explained.
