its A
When we have to decide between two things, we should use wether. So now its boils down to A and C. C is out because wether or not is redundant.

^ A ^

"whether" is preferred over "if" on deciding between two things. So B, D and E are out.

We dont need "or not" as in C.

(A) whether the evidence warrants censuring him or ousting him
(B) if there is evidence that warrants a censuring or an ousting him
(C) whether or not the evidence warrants censuring him or ousting him
(D) if there is evidence that warrants censuring him or ousting him
(E) if the evidence would warrants that he be censured or he be ousted

A is the best choice. No redundancy and properly uses 'whether'
