House Speaker Mike Johnson is facing a growing conservative rebellion.

Johnson could soon find himself out of a job.

And Rand Paul put Mike Johnson on notice that this heinous betrayal is the final nail in his coffin.

Speaker Johnson betrays conservatives

Conservatives in the House of Representatives were already up in arms over Johnson rolling over for Joe Biden in the fight over government spending.

But the anger boiled over when Johnson cast the deciding vote to kill an amendment to a bill reauthorizing Section 702 of the FISA Act that would have required the government to get a warrant before spying on American citizens.

The FBI abused FISA to spy on Donald Trump in the 2016 campaign and to illegally target Trump supporters after January 6.

Yet Johnson (R-LA) – who voted against FISA as a member of the Judiciary Committee – cast the deciding vote to kill the warrant requirement amendment.

Johnson later explained the Deep State pressured him behind closed doors and he folded despite knowing how the Democrats weaponized FISA and the FBI to terrorize Trump and his supporters.

“When I was a member of Judiciary, I saw all of the abuses of the FBI — there were terrible abuses, over and over and over,” Johnson stated. “And then when I became Speaker, I . . . got the confidential briefing from sort of the other perspective on that, to understand the necessity of Section 702 of FISA and how important it is for national security.”

Conservatives fume over Johnson supporting Joe Biden illegally spying on Americans

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) didn’t mince words.

In an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Paul told host Shannon Bream that Johnson conducts himself like a Democrat Speaker of the House.

“Speaker Johnson was incredibly wrong,” Paul stated. “He broke the tie. He voted with the Democrats. Here we have the leader of the Republicans in the House votes with the Democrats against a warrant requirement.”

“We also have Speaker Johnson voting for the spending package once again with a majority of the Democrats,” Paul added. “As I see it now, I’m not so sure there’s a difference between Mike Johnson being in charge and the Democrats being in charge.”

Paul explained that Republicans had the majority in the House and all Johnson had to do was stick to his previous position that he Fourth Amendment requires the government to obtain a warrant before spying on American citizens, but that Johnson – like he did in the government funding fights with Joe Biden’s open borders – rubber stamped another lawless Biden policy.

“Johnson hasn’t held his ground,” Paul stated. “He has power. He has a majority. Use the power of the purse. Speaker Johnson, do something to make us think you are different than the Democrats. But so far I don’t see a lot of difference.”

Paul’s words echoed the argument made by Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) who introduced a motion to vacate the chair and remove Johnson as Speaker.

Greene said Johnson served as a Democrat Speaker by not insisting Joe Biden seal the border as part of a government funding bill.

And now that Johnson caved to Biden on illegal warrantless spying, Greene may feel compelled to call for a vote on her motion to vacate, which could put Johnson’s speakership in peril.

Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) poured fuel on that fire when he called on Johnson to resign and announced he was cosponsoring Greene’s motion.
