Meadows files a motion to remove Boehner as Speaker, saying that Boehner has caused the power of Congress to atrophy, “thereby making Congress subservient to the Executive and Judicial branches, diminishing the voice of the American People.” The motion also claims that Boehner has:
[used the power of his office to] punish Members who vote according to their conscience instead of the will of the Speaker.
Boehner seeks to investigate Planned Parenthood’s alleged sale of organs from aborted fetuses.
At my request our committees have begun looking at some of the gruesome practices embraced by Planned Parenthood. I am also demanding that the President denounce and stop these practices. If you’ve seen this video I don’t have to tell you how sickening it is. So rest assured we are going to get to the bottom of this…It’s disgusting.
