House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is allegedly facing a "revolt" among House Democrats, and is undoubtedly struggling to keep them in line.
From The Daily Caller:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is increasingly struggling to keep Democrats in line and appears to be following her members on crucial issues rather than leading them.
On Wednesday, House Democrats introduced a motion to impeach President Trump, despite Pelosi’s insistence for months that Democrats hold off on pushing impeachment. Fifty-eight Democrats voted in favor of impeachment on Wednesday, despite Pelosi’s objections.
“Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment,” Pelosi and Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer said in a joint statement.
Pelosi’s hesitance to push impeachment has put her at odds with left-wing activist groups who have been demanding Trump’s impeachment since before he was even sworn into office.
Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers’ resignation last Friday represented another victory for House Democrats who have bucked Pelosi’s authority.
Sworn affidavits signed by four of his former staffers describe Conyers, who resigned on Friday, as a serial sexual harasser who preyed on his female staffers and demanded sexual favors from them. Conyers also allegedly abused taxpayer resources to pursue sexual relationships with women.
Pelosi initially defended the 88-year-old Conyers as “an icon” and deferred to a House Ethics Committee investigation — a process that can stretch out for years.
It took Pelosi 10 days to call for the establishment Democrat’s resignation, which she did only after facing the prospect of a revolt from members furious over Conyers remaining in office.
