WATCH: Nicole Malliotakis says Pelosi may not retain her role as Speaker

Appearing on Fox News, Congresswoman-elect Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y. made the case that Nancy Pelosi may not retain her role as House Speaker.

Malliotakis said “what I can tell you is that she (Pelosi) was elected speaker there were 15 Democrats that did not vote for her. 10 of them are returning and the majority is less than that and so we have an opportunity to see a new speaker.”

“We even have an opportunity for Kevin McCarthy to become speaker depending on how things play out, who shows up.”
