I can’t get past the fact that a small group in our conference violated the rules to get rid of Kevin, and then blocked Steve, Rep.

You don’t have a process where I play by the rules and these other people can’t and then they get what they want.

Americans want fair play and rule of law, Rep.

I was the last person on the floor January 6, and the idea that this guy is the Republican nominee to be speaker, a guy who aggressively agitated the activities that happened on January 6, I think is disgusting, Rep.

The bottom line is we’ve got to get back to work.

We don’t have any time here to waste, Rep.
