Impeaching President Trump Not on Democrats' To-Do List For Now

Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi

A group of nine Democrats threatened Friday to withhold support for Nancy Pelosi's House Speaker bid, creating a potential roadblock for the California Democrat who has been lobbying for weeks to get her old role back. Stephanie Murphy and Darren Soto seeking broad rules reform in the U.S. House of Representatives responded Friday to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's appeasement effort by saying it is not good enough and they can not support her for House Speaker.

"Although we are at a stalemate in our discussions, and therefore can not support Leader Pelosi for Speaker at this time, we will keep working with the Leader and others in hope of reaching consensus on specific rules changes for more bipartisan, common sense governing", the group said.

According to a source familiar, the nine members who signed are: Reps.

Gottheimer, one of the chairmen of the Problem Solvers Caucus, told CNN on Friday that he had been in touch with Pelosi and her team a half dozen times over the course of the week.

In a letter sent on Friday, Pelosi thanked those who've supported her so far, and said she requests "that we all support the nominee of our Caucus for Speaker on the Floor of the House", consistent with party rules that require all members to vote in favor of the Democratic candidate.

Gottheimer emphasized that the opposition letter is not about any one person in particular but instead about "process and governing". On Monday, a bloc of 16 House Democrats officially released a letter declaring they will not support her.

The Mountaineers were humming along early, driving 75 yards twice on nine and 10 plays, respectively, to set the early pace. Murray finished 20 of 27 for 364 yards and converted a late fourth down to seal a matchup of Heisman Trophy hopefuls.

Democrats will vote for their party leader next month. However, Pelosi could win with fewer than 218 votes if some members of the caucus vote "present", which does not count to the overall vote total, or if some members are absent.

Pelosi (D-Calif.) has expressed confidence that she will elected to the position she held from 2007-2011, despite some Democrats calling for new leadership.

This follows recent polls, showing several members of the Democrat party are shying away from Pelosi as the next House speaker.

Since then, Pelosi has muted much of the opposition, and key opponents such as Representatives Marcia Fudge of OH and Brian Higgins of NY now say they plan to support her.

Pelosi, the only declared candidate for speaker, is working to counter opposition from another group of Democrats who gathered 16 signatures from members and members-elect pledging to oppose her for speaker in a January 3 floor vote.

Pelosi met with the Democratic signees last week and made vague assurances to support their goals. Pelosi announced on Tuesday that Fudge would chair a House Administration subcommittee on elections. She is, for now, the only declared candidate for speaker.
