GOP anger toward Nancy Pelosi is growing, as more people are calling for her to get the boot as Speaker of the House.
The Conservative House Freedom Caucus has formally asked for Kevin McCarthy’s assistance in removing Pelosi from her position. The latest tension between GOP leaders and Pelosi stems from her rejection of two GOP picks for the January 6 Capitol attack special committee.
“Speaker Pelosi’s tenure is destroying the House of Representatives and our ability to faithfully represent the people we are here to serve,” the caucus wrote in its letter to McCarthy and other GOP leaders. “Republicans, under your leadership, must show the American people that we will act to protect our ability to represent their interests,” the letter continued.
What else did the Conservative House Freedom Caucus and other GOP leaders have to say about Pelosi? And are Democrats prepared to thwart the plan to oust her?
