Rep. John Larson (D-1st district) has a pretty tough job right now: defending Nancy Pelosi. Larson said on MSNBC today that Democrats aren’t considering a change in leadership:
“The Democratic Caucus stands firmly behind Nancy Pelosi, as does Steny Hoyer stand with her,” House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson (D-Conn.) said during an appearance on MSNBC.
When asked if there would be any change in the Democratic leadership over Pelosi’s accusations that the CIA misled Congress in intelligence briefings, Larson said, “No. None whatsoever.”
Pelosi has been in hot water lately over just how much she knew about the Bush administration’s use of torture. There have been a few calls here and there, mostly from Republicans, for her to resign. That seems very unlikely, but still it’s good form for the man who may succeed her one day to go on television and offer a robust defense.
