House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has apparently been looking for places to blow off steam after being forced to admit she would not be pursuing impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Looking for a way to lash out at the Trump Administration, Pelosi has stooped to repossessing office space that former Speaker Paul Ryan awarded to Vice President Mike Pence.
Throughout most of U.S. history, the Vice President has held a physical office located near to the Senate. The office may not see much use, but it stands as a symbolic gesture and gift for the VP.
Now Pelosi wants to make her own statement by removing Pence from the office like a thief in the night.
There was no announcement to preclude Pelosi’s reassignment of the office. Instead, the Speaker simply authorized to have Pence’s placard removed.
A Democratic aid shared with NPR that such “room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress.” They gave no other motives for the move.
