Kelly Armstrong backs House Speaker Mike Johnson following MTG's motion to vacate chair

(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota Representative Kelly Armstrong is expressing support for House Speaker Mike Johnson, even though Armstrong disagreed with Johnson on the recently passed FISA legislation.

"I've served with him for five years, he is a great man, he is a Christian man, he is a conservative. I think we need to give him a chance to operate in probably the most challenging environment a majority has ever had in congress, at least not in wartime," said Armstrong. 

Armstrong said Johnson's support of the FISA legislation is not enough of a reason for conservatives to want Johnson removed from his position as house speaker.

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has filed a motion to vacate the speaker's chair.

Armstrong made the comments while appearing The Flag's "What's on Your Mind".
