Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was evicted from her private Capitol office by the new speaker pro-tempore.
Fox News Digital confirmed that House Speaker pro-tempore Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., gave the order to Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway by Wednesday.
McHenry is a close ally to now-former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who was ousted from his role on Tuesday.
McHenry’s eviction order was one of the congressman’s first acts as the top House lawmaker.
Pelosi was notified of the eviction, first reported by Politico, in an email.
The email said the former speaker’s hideaway was being reassigned “for speaker office use.”
“Please vacate the space tomorrow, the room will be re-keyed,” the email read.
Pelosi moved out of her hideaway on Tuesday, with help from the staff of House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., according to a spokesperson for the former speaker.
