Grabien published a video montage Friday of the Democratic lawmakers who are now calling on US House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to step down or be replaced. In fact, 12 Democrats reportedly met to discuss a “coup” against Pelosi.
These Democrats include Reps. Filemon Vela (D-Texas), Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y), Seth Moulton (D-Mass.), and others. US Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) even said the Democratic brand has become “toxic” under Pelosi’s leadership.
The calls from some Democrats for Pelosi to step down follow another special election loss Tuesday, in which Democrat Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District despite tens of millions of dollars spent — along with other party resources — to propel Ossoff to victory.
In a related note, Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that he hopes Democrats don’t force Pelosi out:
I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out. That would be very bad for the Republican Party – and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!
