17 Democrats handed Nancy Pelosi a letter that could end her career

Democrats are trying to count votes for the next Speaker.

Nancy Pelosi has predicted she will win.

But 17 Democrats handed her a letter that crushed her hopes and dreams.

Many House Democrats campaigned saying they would not vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker.

Now at least 17 have signed a letter saying they will not vote for Pelosi for Speaker.

Fox News reports:

The revolt inside the Democratic Party against Nancy Pelosi’s return to the House speakership is gaining momentum with a growing number of Democrats signing a letter pledging not to support the California Democrat for speaker.

“It’s going to get ugly,” a senior House Democrat told Fox News.

Fox News has confirmed at least 17 House Democrats, including incumbents and incoming members, have signed on to a document saying they will not support Pelosi on the House floor for speaker. A Democrat familiar with the effort says they are trying to add more names before the letter is publicly released.

If all those Democrats vote against Pelosi on the floor, Pelosi would not have the votes for speaker. To get the gavel, Pelosi will first need to pick up a majority of the Democratic Caucus in internal leadership elections, then go on to win an absolute majority of the House.

Pelosi can’t afford to lose any more votes.

But so far, no other Democrat has stepped forward with a legitimate shot at grabbing the Speaker’s gavel.

Pundits have reported on an internal “civil war” within the Democrat Party.

The new generation of Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are socialists in the mold of Bernie Sanders.

But Nancy Pelosi has an unmatched political fundraising machine.

That – along with no other viable alternatives – could be enough to propel her back to the Speaker’s chair.

    In all fairness to the people of the US and Nancy’s constituents, it’s time for her to retire. Whether she retains the gavel as Speaker of the House irreverent as it will be gridlock in Washington. Instead of both parties working together for the betterment of American citizens, they refuse to do so…..they act like children and I spanked my child for misbehaving…..

      Someone has suggested that Bernie Sanders might be the alternative in which case I might prefer befuddled Nancy Pelosi. Either way, nothing will get accomplished.

  2. Jorge says:

    I am not too much for Airhead Pelosi. However, given the alternative of the Bernie sanders, I think I would prefer Airhead Pelosi than communistic inclined Sanders.

  3. Mikey says:

    A civil war in the democratic caucus? So much the better.

    • Karin Isbell says:

      For once 17 democrates did the right thing. Pelosy lost my respect when she slandered and smeared Judge Kavanaugh during his hearing.

  4. They have to make her SPEAKER, dementia or not, as they want to see her as “president” in the White House….The plan is to KICK OUT Trump and Pence – that’s the ORDER of the OWNER of the so-called democRAT party, and WHO is that, george soros….His MONEY will BUY her the presidency because HE couldn’t BUY it for hillary…….

  5. Who they choose for Speaker will make little difference in their objective. But obviously some of them don’t want Pelosi out front making a public fool of herself and the party.

  6. I really don’t care who they put in power for the Democrats. It is a short lived environment. The more left the person is the more problems they cause for our country. They won this election by using fraudulent voting. We as a country should be pushing for voter ID as the solution. That is the only way a fair election can be done.

  7. M says:

    The Dems will figure it out (in their mind’s eye)! If there is one, even one, who will work with DJT for the good of the Country, that would be their best option. That will happen when snow is 2 feet deep in hell!
    Nancy Pelosi will win the gavel again. She raises more money than anybody else possibly could as she has all the experience and connections, money talks and BS walks. She is very good for Republicans, she suffers from dementia and other mental problems, she is the single most hated actively serving woman in American politics, everytime she gets in front of the camera we wonder if her brain is going to completely freeze up as she stammers and searches for her words, and she is so much fun we would miss her so much!

  8. Philip says:

    There is so much disarray in the Democratic party. How are these people going to run things.

  9. Grizz Mann says:

    Republicans, it is time to stand up for this victim of the Democrat War On Women. If the Democrats do not want her, vote her in. She will be accused of colluding with the Republicans.

    • RON HATT says:

      NASTY PELOIS, IS PROBABLY THE “WORST” SWAMP FEMALE, ON THE DEMONCRAT SIDE! SHE WIELDS HER “POWER”, LIKE A GUILLOTINE! I THINK NASTY, IS ALMOST TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE “MENTAL DERANGEMENT OF THE FAR RADICAL LEFT!

      TRUMP, SHOULD APPLAUD HER NEXT TENURE……& SIMPLY SMILE, AT HER AWKWARD EXUBERANCE, & CHUCKLE AT HER IGNORANCE!….”GO NASTY”……DO YOUR THING!

  10. We need a speaker who will communicate with the President in order to get things accomplished …..maybe a foreign exchange student?

  11. David in MA says:

    After more thought, the speaker does not have to be a member of congress, so, maybe they will nominate the immigrant from Indonesia, OR, hag Hillary?

  12. David in MA says:

    At the last minute scumbag schumer will either be drafted or simply end up with the votes, he already has it lined up.

  13. James C Green says:

    Let’s hope she ‘s chosen as the Speaker again. The demise of the Dem Party will come sooner that way!

  14. dlmstl says:

    San Fran Feces Nan is not going quietly into the night. I hope these wannbe rebels remember, if your goal is regicide, you’d better complete the mission. Coup failures end messy. In the mean time POTUS Trump and the Republicans can watch and wait. If she’s a few votes shy it could be time for the ‘Art of the Deal’. Even though the Dems gained the House, the fact that this wasn’t a Blue Wave has complicated matters. They still have to show progress before 2020 other than ‘we resist’. Then there’s always the specter of a ‘black swan’ event, like Buzzy Ginsburg assuming room temperature. Get ready for some American style kabuki theater.

  15. Mike says:

    Here’s the problem with Congress, in a nutshell; no term limits. Two 4 years is all anyone should be able to serve in the House or Senate. Also, unlimited donations to political action committees needs to be eliminated, as well. Lobbyists need to be put on a tight leash, as well. Congressional benefit packages to be greatly reigned, as well. Considering that almost 75% of the members of Congress are millionaires, to begin with, they have no concept of what the majority of Americans go through to make ends meet.

    • David n Texas says:

      Agree, and it is time to put an age or time limit on the SCOTUS.

    • jack says:

      I agree. Congress was never intended to be a career. Term limits is the best way to ensure that no one can be owned by outside interests. Also, put congress on the same medical and retirement system as we common folk. Make them abide by the rules they make for the rest of us.

  16. it’s a fact that “44% of the American population pays no Federal Income Taxes.” Nancy Pelosi claims she plans to “claw back” the “Crumbs” from the Trump Tax Bill. What will reducing ZERO from ZERO accomplish for the American economy? What middle America deserves is the new Republican Tax Bill that will make the Trump Tax permanent!

  17. Barb W says:

    Robert Tipton, you are so right. The speaker position DOES matter for the reason you state.

  18. Kendall Bryan says:

    Pelosi will be Speaker, but it does not really matter. They are all the same. Communists demorats.

  19. John Decker says:

    Sounds like the poor ol’ rich girl has some rejection to deal with. Poor baby! My choice for speaker is Ocasio-Cortez. She’s young, she’s brash, and hasn’t got a brain cell in her entire body, let alone her head! And attractive? NOT! Pop eyes and tombstones for teeth. She’s a natural for the job. The job of destroying the U.S. Is everybody positive she’s Hispanic and not North Korean? Kim won’t need nukes if she’s in charge!

    • Sheron says:

      Boy John I hope you realize that if something happens to president and Vice President, the speaker of the house becomes president. Do t. Ever say Cortez.

    • Sheron says:

      Boy John I hope you realize that if something happens to president and Vice President, the speaker of the house becomes president. Don*t Ever say Cortez.

  20. Mark says:

    Pelosi will be elected a Speaker. The no Pelosi thing is political horse manure. They, the no Pelosi contingent, will say they did all they could……..”but”.

    • Judith F Bennett says:

      I also think she will be Speaker, even if some Republicans have to vote for her. That would be hilarious and give the upstarts what they deserve.

  21. Blonnlass says:

    The Department of Defense, Department of Interior/National Park Service/Governor of California, Commerce Department, Internal Revenue Service, Veterans Adminstration should have their individual O.I.G. Counsel call for Nancy Pelosi and her nephew Laurence Pelosi sited under their private allocation of creating the Presidio Partnership following the BRAC and Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi allowed the Former U.S.S.R.Dictator Mikhail Gorbachev to set up his NWO Foundation without allowing the voters of California to oppose such a globalist agenda at their expense. If the Democrats VOTE for Pelosi’s continued corruption, the Democrats supporting her should not be allowed a leadership role despite their seniority.

  22. Alibaba says:

    Who in his right mind would care about DC dog and pony show, while US is officially invaded by hordes of wealth seekers? While we are on the verge of WW III, just because…
    DC is so disconnected of what should represent and work for who pay them, I actually wonder why do we need them anymore. Ultimately US IS a confederation of Sovereign States. Why Maine, or South Dakota have to bow to Washington? Obviously California doesn’t. Nor Texas!…

  23. God is in charge, and there are still good God fearing people to get us over the difficult times!

  24. Wendell Fountain says:

    Regardless of what this handful of delusional democrats have said about not wanting nutty Nancy, I still think she will be Speaker.

  25. Karl says:

    Pelosi is the holder of the BAG OF DEMOCRATS FECAL MATTER.
    THAT IS WHY HER OWN DON’T WANT HER AROUND ANYMORE BECAUSE SHE STINKS TO MUCH. THEY SHOULD ALSO GET R ES ADY OF SCHUMMY, AND THR REST OF THE MUMMIES.

    • Anne says:

      She knows where every single body is buried , who owns the shovel and who bought the plot. She is the devil that all the Rinos know and will toss votes to her toget whatever they can from her. The young turks have so little education in regard to their own Nations history and are such whinners they are pitiful.

  26. Al nowak says:

    Could care less who is the speaker of the house, we are just trading in one communist for another! I really cant think of a Democrat politician that is not a looney tune and will work with the president!

  27. Michael Taylor says:

    DEM’s are Dumb, however, I do not think they are The Stupid to elect her Speaker…She would set the Party back in her quest, along with Waters and Schiff, to spend the next 2-years going on the Attack of Trump and Not doing the Jobs of the Promises they made to get elected…Pelosi, is already Back Tracking on some of her promises…

  28. Sarge says:

    Just like Hillary

  29. Travis says:

    The thing about Democrats…Democrats are always right, they’re never wrong, and they can never commit a wrong…just ask one. Fact is, it’s not easy to be a Democrat. To be a good Democrat one must be capable of hating, cheating, lying, stealing, and falsely accusing another. Democrats are a special kind of American. Not everyone can make the grade to be a true Democrat; although I know of few good Americans who want to be one. Just think of all the good that Democrats have accomplished. Without them we would have significantly less, racism, hate and political stagnation; less crime and suppression of blacks; fewer illegal aliens and no sanctuary cities; alteration of history would stop and historical events and landmarks would not be changed and/or destroyed; and the NEA would not be in control of education and dumbing down our children. Just think of all the things we would miss without Democrats.

  30. FRANK says:

    Nancy,
    Don’t grab for that gavel until Congress votes on it. Remember you got to pass before you get to read it.

    • Dave says:

      I love it when the dems start eating their own. So if this country was totally dems, there would be in-fighting to the death. All the snakes would turn on their own. Oh, I love it.

  31. Retired Marine says:

    She is a sneaky old bag of wind. Blackmail or other thing are not beneath her arrogant idiotic arse.
    She will lie, cheat, steal, or bribe her way. An ugly troll that will not fade quietly into the night.

  32. Randall M says:

    See. Even her own party doesn’t want her. Retire already.
