Term deposits being prepared to drain liquidity from the US

Federal Reserve: Press Release: Term Deposits

Herein is phase 1 of the exit strategy which is needed to keep rates low. Drain the liquidity using term deposits. There are many more options to take money from the system, not least selling treasuries. Hyperinflation just got shot in the heart.

How can you shoot something that isn't there?

Not sure I understand how this works. I thought 'Term deposits' had to be re-paid with interest after ther term expires. So how does this drain liquidity? Surely it just ties money up for a while?

it keeps tying it up again and again and again for fairly short periods. Thus its flexible enough to be changed very quickly in line with a desired outcome. its like a fixed term bond but one that offers interest so good that you never take the cash out.
