Hello all and thanks for your time and expertise.  I'm still green at powershell and I've been tasked with removing multiple users from an AD group.  Please note I've already created a .txt file with all of the samaccountnames of the relevant users.  
The affected users are all in the same OU and that's where I exported the list of login names from.  
Would really appreciate if someone could provide me the syntax for this kind of operation.  Thanks.

To remove list of users from GroupA use following code..
Import-Module Activedirectory
$Users = GC C:\userlist.txt
Remove-adgroupmember -Identity "GroupA" -Members $Users

Open in new window


Or

Import-Module Activedirectory
GC C:\userlist.txt | %{Remove-adgroupmember -Identity "GroupA" -Members $_}

Open in new window

Sample C:\userlist.txt
UserA
UserB
UserC

Embrace Powershell.  Abandon third party apps.

This is rudimentary but works:
$List = Get-Content "C:\Users\jdoe\Desktop\input.txt" 
Foreach ($Item in $List){Remove-ADGroupMember -Identity GroupName -Member $Item}
