US lawmakers on Tuesday voted to remove Kevin McCarthy as Speaker.


Eight Republicans aligned with all 208 Democrats in voting for a motion to vacate, forcing McCarthy to relinquish his post.


It’s the first time in U.S. history that a speaker has been voted out.


Because there is no precedent for McCarthy’s removal it is not immediately clear what happens next.


House Republicans are holding a closed-door meeting and  It’s unclear what they’ll announce publicly afterward.
