Speaker Pelosi statement on Stefanik appointment







PBS interview, Wednesday
Pelosi said the GOP is, "punishing Members who tell the truth" about Trump's election loss and his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, per a statement posted to her website.

"Nothing less is at stake than out democracy," Pelosi said in an interview with PBS on Wednesday.

"Maybe she's more, shall we say, compliant," Pelosi said in reference to Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), who has been floated as Cheney's replacement as House Republican conference chair.

3. Really. Like they ever expected us to? Spkr Pelosi is correct in speaking for her Congress.

That's why she's Speaker of the House & they aren't.
Plus her words are entered into Congressional history opposing the decision.

7. That's enough of that.

You and I know Trump is a frozen chunk of lard, and Trump even knows he's a frozen chunk of lard, but it's not nice to keep rubbing his face in his own frozen chunk of lard.
Let's keep it civil, OK?

Now watch the mystification on the face of reporter after reporter as they try to divine what Speaker Pelosi is saying about Rep. Stefanik and the Republicans.

20. This is what her constituents in my neck-of-the-woods think of Stefanik. This went up last February:



Billboard campaign calls on Stefanik to resign

23. Are there any challengers to her 2022 election?

Dem or R's?

She once said to try for NY Gov. Yikes.

24. I'm guessing that Tedra Cobb from up north will run against her again

It was close the last time and she garnered a lot of national support. There have been numerous Democratic challengers, I think there were 10 in the last primary, but Tedra Cobb won. NY-21 was represented by a moderate Democrat until 2015 when long-time Rep. Bill Owens retired. He chose a successor, Aaron Woolf, and I went to the meetup where Owens introduced him and I liked him a lot, made GOTV calls for him, but Stefanik won. I'm sure that she'll have more challengers this time around, but it looks like Tedra Cobb is running again.

26. I think so, too. Tedra Cobb had support from far outside the district

There were even discussions about her here on DU. There have been protests against Stefanik since she first took office, she stopped publicizing her schedule ahead of time because she knew protesters would show up. And this was before she attracted national attention by standing up with Gym Jordan during the first impeachment hearings on national TV. She's obviously taken a hard MAGA turn, but the protests and the opposition started well before that. Tedra Cobb had some national support and I'm guessing that she'll have an even greater national profile this time around after the amount of publicity Stefanik's been getting.
