Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) was removed from her position on the powerful House Financial Services Committee after she criticized committee chair, Rep. Maxine Waters, (D-CA) according to Breitbart News.
Porter was favored among liberal voters for the way she castigated former President Donald Trump and went head to head with oil executives and American financial institutions.
However, it is believed that when the same tenacity spilled over into interactions her own party and she became a problem for the leaders of her committee and party.
According to Breitbart, Porter regularly criticized Waters and was thought to represent a number of House Democrats with her objections.
“Porter flowered into a force of her own, overshadowing Waters while garnering praise from House progressive stars such as ‘squad’ member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), for attempting to ‘change the system that her colleagues have been operating under for years,’ which particularly undermines committee leadership,” the news outlet reported.
The Los Angeles Times reported on Porter’s fall from favor in their article where the paper stated that “Democrats loved Katie Porter when she bashed Trump. Now she is making them squirm.”
The LA Times reported that Porter was known to publicly confront Waters, Pelosi, and anyone else who was found in her path.
While division in the DNC might seem like good news for conservatives, knowing that the fight is between the aggressively liberal and shockingly socialists ideologies makes it difficult to see how the American people will win no matter who comes out on top of the infighting.
Possibly the best scenario for conservatives would be for this disruption to allow those on the fence about our two-party, no term limit system to see what powerful politicians will do to stay in power, even to their own people.
