'Squad' newcomer pushes to expel House Republicans who fought Biden win


A first-term Democratic lawmaker, Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri, is seeking sanctions that could include a political death penalty for Republican House members who contested electoral votes sent in by states that finalized Joe Biden’s defeat of President Trump.

Bush plans to introduce a resolution Monday that could lead to the harshest possible sanction of sitting House members (expulsion), which has only happened five times in the nation’s history. Bush’s efforts may pick up support after last Wednesday’s storming of the Capitol by Trump backers, which left five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer, and disrupted legislative business.

A discussion draft of the resolution posted by Bush on Twitter Sunday would direct the Committee on House Administration and Committee on Ethics to investigate and issue a report on whether the 138 Republican House members who contested electoral votes for Biden in one or more states should face sanctions for trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
