Kevin McCarthy, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, was recently voted out

This historic event was led by a group of hard-right Republicans.

The rebellion was spearheaded by Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz.

McCarthy's removal followed a motion to vacate the chair from Gaetz.

Eight hard-right Republicans joined 208 Democrats in supporting McCarthy’s removal.

This is the first time in US history that a Speaker of the House has been removed from office.

McCarthy's removal was partially triggered by his efforts to avoid a government shutdown.

His willingness to collaborate with Democrats to prevent economic chaos sealed his fate.

Gaetz sought McCarthy’s removal after the speaker worked with House Democrats to pass a stopgap spending bill.

Gaetz also accused McCarthy of cutting a “secret side deal” with Joe Biden on providing additional funding to Ukraine.

Despite his repeated efforts to appease them, his willingness to collaborate with Democrats to prevent economic chaos sealed his fate.
