On Thursday, the House will vote on stripping Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of her assignments on the Education and Budget committees over her endorsement of violence against Democrats and support for extreme far-right conspiracy theories. One of those conspiracy theories includes QAnon, which alleges, among a slew of other wild things, that (now-ex) President Donald Trump was secretly battling a Satanic cabal of pedophiles in Hollywood and the Democratic Party.

It’ll be the second time Republicans will be forced to reveal on the record how much they will tolerate QAnon in their ranks.
