The acting speaker of the House, Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina, ordered former Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway office by Wednesday, according to an email sent to her office viewed by Politico.
“Please vacate the space tomorrow, the room will be re-keyed,” wrote a top aide on the Republican-controlled House Administration Committee. The room was being reassigned by the acting speaker “for speaker office use,” the email said.
McHenry is a close ally of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who was ousted as Speaker on Tuesday. Eight Republicans joined with the Democratic conference to vote out a Speaker for the first time ever on a House vote.
House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries’ staff helped Pelosi’s office make the move, according to a spokesperson for the former speaker.
