During yesterday’s House proceedings, Congressman Matt Gaetz officially filed his highly-anticipated Motion to Vacate the Chair against Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
As The Gateway Pundit reported, the vote on this Motion to Vacate was brought to the floor today by House Leadership. Members then took fifteen minutes to vote on a motion to Table Gaetz’s Motion to Vacate, which McCarthy and his backers lost by a vote of 208-218. The House then debated the Motion for one hour and proceeded to vote alphabetically by roll call.
