Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) ordered former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway office by Wednesday, according to an exclusive report 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.
Politico reports only “a select few House lawmakers get hideaway offices in the Capitol.”
Her eviction was one of the first order of business for the acting speaker.
Pelosi, who is in San Francisco attending a memorial service for the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein, blasted what she called the “eviction.”
“Sadly, because I am in California to mourn the loss of and pay tribute to my dear friend Dianne Feinstein, I am unable to retrieve my belongings at this time,” she said in a statement obtained exclusively by POLITICO.
“This eviction is a sharp departure from tradition,” she said. “As Speaker, I gave former Speaker Hastert a significantly larger suite of offices for as long as he wished. Office space doesn’t matter to me, but it seems to be important to them.”
Why did ex-Speaker McCarthy provide Pelosi an exclusive, hideaway office in the the U.S. Capitol instead of giving that work space to a Republican? And what other secret deals was McCarthy making with the Democrats?
