The U.S. House of Representatives has stripped Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) of her two committee assignments in a process initiated by Connecticut Congresswoman Jahana Hayes. Speaking on All Things Considered, the 5th District representative talked about why she took the lead on this, what the day of the vote was like, what she feared about not censuring Greene for her violent and conspiratorial statements, and ... why she was sitting in Nancy Pelosi’s chair as the House vote commenced.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. In his 20th year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
