U.S. Congresswoman Abigal Spanberger (D-VA) lashed out today at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), suggesting that perhaps new leadership is needed in the party.
Bloomberg’s Erik Wasson reported, “Scathing statement from @RepSpanberger after House fails to bring up ban for a vote.”
“This moment marks a failure of House leadership — and it’s yet another example of why I believe that the Democratic Party needs new leaders in the halls of Capitol Hill,” Spanberger said.
Advisor to former President Donald Trump, Stephen Miller, responded to Spanberger’s desperate attempt to appear moderate in a quote tweet of Wasson.
“The only way to get new leaders is to defeat @RepSpanberger and elect a GOP majority,” Miller explained.
Miller added that despite her posturing, “A vote for radical left Spanberger is a vote for Speaker Pelosi.”
Pelosi bristled at the criticism by Spanberger, calling the press release “interesting” as she attempted to brush it off.
When asked by a reporter, Pelosi responded, “I’m strictly focused on winning the next election. Do you want to talk about that? Okay. Is that your question? Who’s next? And let me just say about Spanberger’s letter.”
“First of all, her bill is contained in this bill. Other members had ideas too, to improve upon the bill. So I didn’t see that. I mean, I don’t know what her statement is, but it is contrary to what the House Administration Committee — I said to them, whatever you, whatever the members want to do, I fully support. And they took her bill, added other others that made the bill stronger as a matter of fact. So this is an interesting press release, but it’s more important to write a bill.”
Pelosi then insisted that you have to have the votes to bring it up, to which the reporter asked if she did.
“Well, we’ll see. We’ll work at it. We don’t go from one day to the next. But I think we should have legislation. There are others who have spoken out against the bill. And again, this is the legislative process. But it is, what you, how you described her. Her characterization is not accurate. Her bill is in the bill. Others had ideas, too. And that’s what the committee put forth. But it’s good press because you asked the question.”
