Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) will make his move against Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday, according to congressional reporter Annie Karni.
Gaetz has been at odds with McCarthy since the January battle for the Speaker’s chair. His group of lawmakers fought against McCarthy in the post, only agreeing to withdraw their opposition after some concessions.
“Gaetz plans to deliver a floor speech laying out a detailed case against McCarthy,” said Karni. “He isn’t expected to call for a motion to vacate, but he is laying the groundwork for a potential move to oust him if things reach that point.”
Last week, Gaetz (R-Fla.) dialed up pressure on House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.), demanding he move forward with impeachment whether other lawmakers were ready or not.
