I'd like to read more about the issue being discussed in the video, as the FreedomWorks rep doesnt give any real substance to his claim that this move is illegal. Is there another, more in-depth source for this issue than an opinion piece?

Some libertarian-leaning delegates balked at the notion of signing legal affidavits pledging what they had committed verbally at the caucuses where they were elected. Many later submitted them, but not until after the deadline.
As a result, the committee disqualified them, winnowing the number of Liberty delegates and alternates to the convention from 35 to 19, said organizer Brad Wyatt. (One Liberty delegate was added due to the changes in the roster.)
