Inside Sources Say Efforts Already Underway to Draft Trump as Speaker

House Republicans are making efforts to draft President Donald Trump as Kevin McCarthy’s replacement as House Speaker, according to inside sources

The House of Representatives voted to remove McCarthy on Tuesday by a 216-210 vote, with eight joining House Democrats to approve Matt Gaetz’s (R-FL) motion to vacate.

Now, a growing number of House Republicans are calling for Trump to replace McCarthy.

There is no requirement that the Speaker must be a House member.

During Tuesday’s broadcast of FNC’s Hannity, Sean Hannity said some inside sources told him House Republicans were already in the process of drafting Trump in for House Speaker.

“Eight Republican lawmakers joining all 208 House Democrats to remove Kevin McCarthy as House Speaker — first time in our nation’s history,” Hannity said.

“And McCarthy will not seek the Speakership again,” Hannity said.

“Now, sources telling me at this hour some House Republicans have been in contact with and has started an effort to draft former President Donald Trump to be the next speaker,” he said.

“And I have been told that President Trump might be open to helping the Republican Party, at least in the short term, if necessary, if it is needed.”

Watch

War Room host Steve Bannon said a move to elect Trump as Speaker would “bring this party together.”

Infowars’ Alex Jones also called for Trump to be “nominated as a litmus test on these Republicans.”

“With all the fake charges and all the fake trials, how awesome would it be to make Donald Trump Speaker of the House?” Jones added.

Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani also called for Trump to become Speaker in a post on X:

“President Donald Trump for Speaker of the House?” he wrote.

Marjorie Taylor Greene also declared her support for Donald Trump as Speaker of the House.

Others who also said they would support Trump’s Speakership included Rep. Jim Jordan.

However, Jordan said McCarthy’s leadership has been “rock solid” and believed he had kept his word.

McCarthy announced he would not seek to regain the Speaker’s gavel after losing a motion to vacate the chair.

The former Speaker took questions after announcing his intentions to step down.

“I believe I can continue to fight, maybe in a different manner,” McCarthy told a packed Capitol room.

“I will not run for Speaker again, I’ll have the conference pick somebody else.”

McCarthy expressed no regrets over his choices in the days leading to Gaetz filing the motion to vacate.

“Doing the right thing isn’t always easy, but it is necessary,” he said, smiling.

“I don’t regret standing up for choosing governing over grievance.”
