House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was not pleased with Democrats who suggested that Democrats work with Republicans on the select Benghazi committee, according to a report from Politico’s Jake Sherman and Lauren French.
During her caucus meeting on Friday, Pelosi sarcastically told members of her party, “Thanks a lot for giving me leverage over the last couple of days.”
Pelosi was likely referring to a number of rank-and-file Democrats who signaled support for participating in the Benghazi committee – and even some Democrats who voted with Republicans to create the committee.
Pelosi was in Los Angeles this week for a series of fundraisers with President Obama.
According to Politico sources, Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) joked that Pelosi “just flew to L.A. and back in two days and that can make you a little grumpy.”
