He told NBC News. He added: “Our majority is very small, and one or two people are enough to make it a minority,” recalling the situation of the Republican faction in the House of Representatives.

Bacon himself supports some level of aid to Ukraine and, along with several lawmakers, has introduced a bill that falls short of the Biden administration's total military aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan of $66 billion.

However, Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia representative who belongs to the conservative wing of the Republican Party, indicated last week that she would take the initiative to dismiss the Speaker of the House of Representatives, although she had not requested a vote on this matter yet, but she only intended this step. As a nod to Mike Johnson.
