Defiant Pelosi Says She's Staying: 'I Think I'm Worth The Trouble'

Pelosi's comments come in the wake of new challenges to her leadership.

"That is why I'm able to attract the support that I do, which is essential to our elections, sad to say", Pelosi added, in a reference to her unparalleled fundraising hauls.

Pelosi, speaking to reporters on Thursday, said she's confident she has the support in her caucus.

It's come to this: For leadership that doesn't repel a majority of Americans, Democrats need to recruit someone who doesn't represent the truth about their party. "My decision to stay is not up to them", she said of her critics, noting that she welcomed and respected "the ambition that exists in my caucus" and members who are "having fun on TV".

Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela from Texas told Politico that you'd have to be an idiot to think that Democrats could win with the current Democratic leader in the House. Ryan added, "I don't think it's fair".

In the first tweet, Trump said former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was "the latest top intelligence official to state there was no grand scheme between Trump and Russian Federation".

As a result, several House Democrats have intensely and publicly criticized Democratic minority leader Nancy Pelosi.

"This is not about me", Rice said. One of Trump's electoral strengths was that he is not Hillary Clinton, and Tuesday in Georgia the voters said they don't want a congressman who has been hanging out with Nancy Pelosi.

"The Democrats actually are competitive when they talk about Medicare, college tuition, wages", Watters said.

Ryan told MSNBC's Hardball Wednesday morning following millennial Democrat Jon Ossoff's defeat to Republican Karen Handel in the Georgia special congressional election to occupy the seat vacated by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price that that loss as well as others is indicative of the Democratic Party's perception among some as a "toxic national brand". "Time to move forward and win again".

The minority leader also responded to Republican attack ads in Georgia and elsewhere that targeted her record and her San Francisco district. "They always want to choose our leaders and usually they go after the most effective leaders because they want to diminish the opportunity that we have", Pelosi said.

"This is certainly something that we have to discuss because it's clear that, I think, across the board in the Democratic Party we need new leadership".

After attending the meeting on Pelosi's future, Representative Richmond, the head of the Congressional Black Caucus, suggested the solution might be changing the narrative surrounding the minority leader, not ousting her. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" he tweeted.

"I'm worth the trouble, quite frankly", she said. "We have to communicate it to a broader audience", Pelosi said.
