    An ongoing feud over who will lead House Democrats next year is poised to enter a new round as early as next week, as members eager to oust House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, are floating a new way to do so. The latest attempt — which senior leadership aides anticipate will be futile — once again exposes that a handful of House Democrats remain concerned about whether Pelosi is dragging down candidates locked in competitive races that the party needs to win in order to gain control of the House. This group of anti-Pelosi Democrats is seeking to change...
  • Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff and Warner DEMAND DOJ-FBI Defy Trump Declassification Order

    In a shocking letter intended to undermine the President, and his authority over the Executive Branch, multiple high ranking Democrats sent a letter ordering intelligence agencies to ignore Trump’s order to declassify numerous documents involving the Russia investigation until consulting with Congress. The intelligence agencies serve at the pleasure of the president — and this clearly crosses the line separating the branches of government. The letter was signed by Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Senator Mark Warner, and Senator Charles Schumer and sent to Director Coats, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and Director Wray. “Your agencies’ review, and any communication...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is renewing President Barack Obama's so-called “war on coal” by backing a radical initiative to shut down more than a third of U.S. coal plants by 2020 -- a line of attack that spectacularly backfired for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) revealed that though even she agrees that Democrats need “new blood,” she is not going anywhere so long as Donald Trump is president. In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that will air Monday evening on CNN International and PBS, Pelosi said she agrees that “it’s time for new blood and we should move on” and added, “If Hillary Clinton had won, and the Affordable Care Act was protected— I feel very proprietary about that—I was happy to go my way,” “But to have no woman at the table and to have the Affordable...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says she has no plans to step aside as long as President Trump is in the White House. “As long as [Trump is] here, I’m here. I feel very comfortable that the support I have in the caucus and that I will be the speaker of the House," she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an interview set to air Monday.

    2 min video at link. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Screen Capture) ( - At her Thursday press briefing, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi presented a list of issues and groups of people she believes will be “on the chopping block” if the Senate confirms Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. “If Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed, Roe v. Wade, affordable health care, voting rights, common-sense gun violence prevention, freedoms of LGBTQ Americans, communities of colors and immigrants are all on the chopping block, just to name a few,” Pelosi said. “And if he doesn't believe in stare decisis as...

    Nancy Pelosi stopped caring about what people think of her a long time ago, so she has no qualms about eating ice cream for breakfast with a stranger. Dark chocolate, two scoops, waffle cone. It’s a freezing January morning in Baltimore’s Little Italy, where Pelosi grew up in the 1950s. “You know what’s good about ice cream in this weather?” she says. “It doesn’t melt down your arm while you’re eating it.” We are sitting in an Italian café on Albemarle Street, alone save for the staff and Pelosi’s security detail, to whom she has offered coffee. The Trump era...

    Levi Sanders, son of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), said that if he's elected to Congress he won't support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) keeping her top spot in the Democratic Party. The younger Sanders is running for the Democratic nomination in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District where, like his father, he supports far-left proposals, including Medicare for all and free public college. Sanders announced that instead of supporting Pelosi he would support Rep. Barabara Lee (D., Calif.) for the top spot among House Democrats, CBS News reports. Lee, who was co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus from...

    At an appearance in San Francisco last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) repeated her story that the spirits of women’s rights activists Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul and Sojourner Truth squeezed into her chair—and then spoke to her—the first time she went to a meeting at the White House after being elected House Minority Leader. When she was elected to that post on Nov. 14, 2002, Pelosi became the first woman in U.S. history to become the leader of either party in the House or Senate. “I sit down and as he [President...

    House Minority Leader said at an event in San Francisco last week that she prays “a lot” in the hopes of stopping the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be a Supreme Court Justice. “I believe in the power of prayer and I think it is urgent,” Pelosi said at an August 22 event sponsored by the Public Policy Institute of California. She was responding to a question from someone in the audience who asked: “Speaking of women’s rights, can we stop Kavanaugh and how?” […] … “Elections have ramifications. People didn’t turn out.

    Nancy Pelosi is the chief villain of Republican campaign ads. The leader some Democrats promise to vote against. The subject of much speculation that her grip on power is coming to an end. Nevertheless, she says she’s not going anywhere — and certainly not while President Donald Trump is in the White House. “This is not anything to make a big fuss over, it’s politics,” Pelosi said in a 35-minute phone interview with The Associated Press. “I can take the heat and that’s why I stay in the kitchen.” Pushing back on those who say her leadership position is in...
  • Maxine Waters: Congress Has ‘Responsibility’ to ‘Impeach Trump’ for ‘High Crimes’

    On a day when top Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tried to downplay any talk of impeaching President Donald Trump, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) declared that it is Congress’s “responsibility” to impeach Trump for “high crimes.” Pelosi has previously said that “any discussion of impeachment” would be a “gift to Republicans” and claimed on Wednesday that impeachment is “not a priority” for Democrats. But after Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to various campaign finance violations on Tuesday, Waters could not restrain herself, tweeting about impeachment hours after Pelosi signaled to Democrats to downplay the issue....

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday said impeaching President Trump is "not a priority," despite Michael Cohen's guilty plea to campaign finance violations that implicated the president. "Impeachment has to spring from something else," Pelosi, who has long downplayed the possibility of impeachment, told The Associated Press. **SNIP** "If and when the information emerges about that, we'll see," Pelosi said. "It's not a priority on the agenda going forward unless something else comes forward."

    The British Broadcasting Corporation ^ | August 22, 2018 | Anthony Zurcher
    As the swirl of legal drama around Donald Trump grows, it will be increasingly difficult for Democrats to avoid direct questions about the "I word" - impeachment - even if the topic makes many on the left squirm with discomfort. On Tuesday Donald Trump's former personal lawyer stood in a New York courtroom and said then-candidate Trump directed him to commit campaign finance crimes. If Mr Cohen is to be believed - and his lawyer has produced an audio recording that appears to be at least partial corroboration - it draws the president closer to what is now-documented illegal activity....

    The 2018 midterms are close upon us, and for Republicans looking to keep control of Congress, the face of Democratic iniquity definitely has a certain...look. According to a new report by The Hill, Republicans are planning to hold on to their seats by tarring their opponents as “puppets” of more widely known and hated politicians: Specifically, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (old! Corrupt!), Rep. Maxine Waters (crazy! Scary!), and Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (radical! Socialist!). Other popular targets include feminist harpy Kirsten Gillibrand and Trump’s old favorite, Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren. You may have noticed these Democrats all have one major...

    In a New York Magazine cover story, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor turned progressive activist David Hogg lashed out at Democratic leadership, accusing them of not getting “the f**k off the plate” and giving the next generation its turn. In the glowing profile, Hogg shares that he plans to run for office when he turns 25. He is on a gap year but will begin college next year and read a “s**tload of books.” He said that Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “a future president of the United States” and floated the idea of age limits for politicians....

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and says, “Move the f**k off the plate and let us take control.” NYMag indicates Hogg is wearied by the “old” Democrats who keep hanging onto their offices. He mentioned Pelosi in particular, and said pointedly, “Nancy Pelosi is old.”

    **SNIP** Since Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 presidential election, much conversation has taken place about black Americans’ loyalty to the Democratic Party. Since the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the party has regularly received the overwhelming majority of black votes. But some have questioned how committed the Democratic Party is to its most loyal constituency. While Clinton went on to win nearly 90 percent of black votes, questions about her commitment to the black community — based on some of her past comments about black youth — were a consistent thorn in her side during her...
