Ga. lawmaker challenges Pelosi in dramatic floor standoff
WASHINGTON — Gainesville U.S. Rep. Doug Collins squared off against Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, using a parliamentary tactic to punish the House’s top leader for comments she made about President Donald Trump on the floor.
As the House voted, Lithonia Democrat Hank Johnson lambasted Republicans for using a “cheap, dilatory parliamentary tactic” against Pelosi.
“To prove what point?” Johnson said. “They’re making things worse for themselves, and I’m ashamed of the conduct of my friends on the other side of the aisle.”
