(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – In a “sweet revenge” strike back against Democrats over the deposing of Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, his interim successor has kicked out leftist heavyweight Nancy Pelosi from her private Capitol office.
In an order on Tuesday, House Speaker pro-tempore Patrick McHenry (R-NC) ordered former Democrat Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) to leave the “Capitol Building hideaway office.”
McHenry’s order came only hours after McCarthy was ousted from the speakership in a 216-210 vote, in which all non-abstaining Democrats and eight Republicans supported the motion vacate filed by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
On Wednesday, the new interim speaker also ordered the second-highest-ranking Democrat in the House, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), to leave his hideaway office.
“The hideaway offices appeared to be courtesies extended by House Republican leadership,” Breitbart comments, calling McHenry’s move “a retaliation.”
It notes that both Pelosi and Hoyer have smaller offices in the office buildings of Congress.
“Please vacate the space tomorrow, the room will be re-keyed,” reads the email the interim speaker sent to Pelosi, who held the same post from 2007-2011 and 2019-2023.
McHenry’s message also informed her that her private office at the Capitol would be reserved “for speaker office use.”
The report points out that McCarthy slammed his predecessor Pelosi because she had “apparently promised” him support in case of a motion to vacate against him.
“Interesting, it was in this room, after we had won the majority and I had become speaker, Nancy Pelosi came to me, she was speaker at the time on the way out, and I told her I was having issues with getting enough votes,” McCarthy said in a speech at the Capitol.
“And she said, ‘What’s the problem?’ I said, ‘They want this one person can rule you out.’ I had the power to call the vote on her, but I never would. I lost some votes because of it,” he revealed further.
“She said, ‘Just give it to them. I will always back you up. I made the same offer to [John] Boehner, and the same thing to Paul [Ryan], because I believe in the institution,’” the deposed speaker added.
“I think today was a political decision by the Democrats,” McCarthy concluded about his ouster.
Before the vote, Pelosi had written on X that she wouldn’t support him because the House speaker “is chosen by the Majority Party.”
