Speaker Pelosi Revokes Vice President Pence's House Office Space
March 12, 20191:40 PM ET Susan Davis
The speaker giveth, and the speaker taketh away.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has reclaimed office space her predecessor, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., awarded to Vice President Pence.
Republicans gave Pence, a former House member, a first-floor bonus office in the U.S. Capitol shortly after President Trump was inaugurated in 2017.
The vice president rarely used the space, but it was a symbolic gesture of the warm relationship Pence enjoyed with Ryan and the House GOP. The vice president serves as the president of the U.S. Senate and historically has been provided an office on the Senate side of the Capitol, which is where Pence more regularly holds court when he visits Congress.
A placard above the door identifying it as Pence's House office was quietly removed in recent weeks. A House Democratic aide confirmed to NPR that the space will be reassigned. "Room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress," the aide said.
The speaker has sole authority to dole out office space in the Capitol, which is prized real estate for members of leadership and senior staff. While Pelosi revoked Pence's office privileges............

“The vice president rarely used the space...”
Then I can understand Pelosi’s decision.
Doesn’t mean I like her, just that I can understand her action.
I propose Mike bring in a big honking motorhome to serve as HQ.
Gerry Nadler couldn’t fit through the door in his office anymore so they needed to knock down the wall between his and Pence’s to get him out. Now they figure ‘just let him keep it so we don’t have to go through this again’.
That’s all right, he has an office right next to the President’s at the White House.
Nancy may have some problems getting through the gates at the White House. Someone will tell her: Sein Papierein sind nicht in Ordnung.
Yup. Use it or lose it.
Damn, I almost typed ‘loose.’
Hope I’m not infected with something.
Big deal... Anything to make it look like Nancy is in control. I’m sure Pence is sitting at home crying his eyes out.
VP Race Bannon will manage.
Ah Nadler the 400 lbs warrior. The room will be used for Tastykakes,Entemens and KristyKreme. Mange Jerrypoo
[Anything to make it look like Nancy is in control.]
Nancy’s the boss!
Alexandria’s the boss!
Sorry, but the Vice-President does not need space or an office or anything else on the House of Representatives side of the Capitol. He has an office on the Senate side because he is the president of that body. That is enough.
“Warm relationship..Pence ..Ryan”
That worries me more than space.
This is not unreasonable.
Petty Pelosi pulls Pence preferential place.
I’m okay with this.
She probably needs the space for Tlaib and Omar’s goats and the Ocasio’s donkey.
Sounds to me like Lyin’ Ryan was just trying to co-opt Pence away from his boss. It sure as he** didn’t help get any of the Trump agenda passed through the House.
Does it have a loft....for the hay.
[Petty Pelosi pulls Pence preferential place.]
Petty, pigheaded, presumptuous, perfumed princess pig-piker Pelosi promptly pulls Pence preferential political place.
