CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): Here's my recommendation. You need a replacement. I think you guys should have a temporary Newt Gingrich as speaker. I'm not kidding. I think that Newt Gingrich should be a temporary speaker until the end of the year. He's not actually a member of it. You guys — you need an alternative. Are there — are you guys talking about alternatives here? And, look, I know that it could be chaos. Potentially, Hakeem Jeffries could become speaker. Nobody wants that. But let me just be very clear. You cannot, as speaker of the House, come and be the deciding vote against the US Constitution with the Fourth Amendment and come out unscathed. I will not put up with that. That was the crossing of the Rubicon. And for the record, Marjorie, I was cheering for this guy. I gave him room to operate. We had him on the show a couple weeks ago. I was cheering for him. I was rooting for him. I wanted him to succeed. I thought he'd be a big, kind of a, let's just say an upgrade. And I am horrified and infuriated because — and we have this tape here that we're downloading here, and we're getting it, of all the different times he said that we're not gonna do Ukraine without the border, then you have the FISA stuff, and now he's willing to go work with Democrats. That has not happened in 60 years. And, MTG, I'll be honest, you know, a couple weeks ago, I was like, I don't know if we should, you know, vacate and all this. Now that you — if we don't vacate, we're basically saying the Fourth Amendment doesn't matter. Our own country does not matter. Your reaction, MTG>

REP. MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE (GUEST): I completely agree with you, Charlie.
