MTG calls for the Expulsion of Republican Congressman Mike Gallagher

Republican Congressman Mike Gallagher will depart from Congress early, dealing another blow to Speaker Mike Johnson and his razor-thin Republican majority.

The Wisconsin Rep. said had he made the decision after "conversations with my family." He added that he would be leaving Congress on April 19.

Earlier he said that he would not seek re-election.

“The Framers intended citizens to serve in Congress for a season and then return to their private lives,” Gallagher said in a statement. “Electoral politics was never supposed to be a career and, trust me, Congress is no place to grow old. And so, with a heavy heart, I have decided not to run for re-election.”

Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Saturday called for the expulsion of Gallagher so that the people of Wisconsin can hold a special election and have representation in the House.
