Newt Gingrich Calls 8 Republicans ‘Traitors’: ‘They Should All Be Driven Out of Public Life’
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich lashed out at House Republicans who voted Tuesday to unseat former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in a historic first.
McCarthy’s speakership was cut short after only nine months when eight Republicans voted with the entirety of the Democratic conference to oust him.
Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida was behind the effort to remove the speaker — who was the first person in history to have the gavel taken from him by a floor vote.
Gaetz was joined in voting to oust McCarthy by fellow Republican Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona; Ken Buck of Colorado; Tim Burchett of Tennessee; Eli Crane of Arizona; Bob Good of Virginia; Nancy Mace of South Carolina; and Matt Rosendale of Montana.
According to Gingrich, each of them should be thrown out of office.
