Charlie Kirk Tells Rep. Elise Stefanik That Her VP Ambitions are Finished After Controversial FISA Vote

Charlie Kirk, a prominent conservative figure, is now claiming that Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has significantly diminished her prospects of becoming former President Donald Trump’s Vice President due to her recent vote in favor of reauthorizing FISA.

On Friday, a total of 86 Republicans opposed a bipartisan amendment put forth by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) that aimed to mandate the FBI to obtain a search warrant for monitoring foreign intelligence information that may involve U.S. persons.

CNN said that the Biden administration, along with national security hawks from the GOP, initiated a lobbying operation to urge members to vote against the amendment due to the issues it raised.

Stefanik was among the 86 legislators who opposed the amendment following her vote in favor of reauthorizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Kirk responded to the news on Friday by informing the audience of The Charlie Kirk Show that Stefanik had effectively eliminated her prospects of being selected as Trump’s running mate in the 2024 election against President Joe Biden.

Kirk subsequently vowed to vehemently resist Stefanik’s selection as the Republican nominee’s vice presidential running mate inside Trump’s inner circle.

“Elise Stefanik you have ended your running to be Donald Trump’s vice president. Elise Stefanik, you’re done! We will now actively oppose you to be Trump’s VP. Nice person. You just ended your VP political career. All that ambition for nothing,” Kirk declared.
