After serving as the caucus leader for 19 years, Pelosi will give her final speech on the House floor at noon. However, Nancy being Nancy, even if she mentions delegating leadership to Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), she has no intention of disappearing altogether. According to Puck, she intends to continue serving as a backbencher and leading the Democrats behind the scenes in a sort of emeritus capacity. She reportedly struggled to decide what she wanted to accomplish and frequently had what she intended to say altered.
According to what I’ve been informed, Pelosi has spent the last 24 hours clearing the way for Hakeem Jeffries while planning how to make sure that Adam Schiff, one of her dogs, is taken care of and won’t be tempted to confront Jeffries. He plans to concentrate on a bid for Dianne Feinstein’s Senate seat, according to Politico. Pelosi’s objective has always been a smooth transition.
That’s Pelosi; she simply can’t relinquish that control, even if it means working in secret and being the minority. Even at the very last second, she is holding onto everything she can with her hands. She seems to be trying to pull off a Putin/Medvedev maneuver, where Jeffries is the leader but she is the main mover. Additionally, there is a hint in that article about what Schiff may do in an effort to unseat Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
In any case, she will no longer be the Speaker defending their abhorrent ideas and claiming that they are all for the benefit of the kids with such tacky statements.
