House Speaker Paul Ryan is crusading to ram amnesty through Congress.
But he just got some bad news.
Conservatives are mobilizing and have one trick up their sleeve to stop Ryan for good.
Ryan – on the orders of big money donors – has been pushing a disastrous piece of legislation that would grant amnesty to two million illegal aliens.
Such a maneuver would cement the Democrats winning back Congress in November.
Conservatives who are committed to Donald Trump’s agenda are mounting opposition.
And they have one move that could end Ryan’s career.
Iowa Congressman Steve King – who has led the fight against amnesty – told Breitbart news conservatives are willing to file a motion to vacate the chair and remove Ryan as Speaker.
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.”
Congressman Mark Meadows used the threat of motion to vacate the chair in 2015 to force John Boehner to resign.
Ryan has said he will leave Congress when his term is up, but as a lame duck Speaker he is no longer accountable to his caucus.
Conservatives would vote to remove Ryan in the hopes that a new Speaker would care more about preserving the majority than “legacy” achievements.
