As we reported earlier this month, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the quiet part out loud during her December 4th press conference about her newfound willingness to cut a deal on a smaller COVID relief package with Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
She snapped at reporters who asked about it at the time, stating that the impending availability of the vaccines as well as the media declaring Joe Biden the winner were “a total game-changer.”
“It’s what we had on our bills. It’s for a shorter period of time but that’s OK now because we have a new president,” Pelosi remarked. “A president that recognizes that we need to depend on science to stop the virus.”
In a nutshell, she had all but outright admitted that she wanted to wait until after the election when presumably Joe Biden would be declared the winner of the presidential race.
When CNN’s Manu Raju asked her at that same presser whether or not it was a “mistake” to not accept a smaller bill months ago when she had the chance, the House Speaker got snippy again, noting it was a calculated decision on her part to delay an agreement on the bill until after the election and that she was not ashamed of the decision.
Raju has continued since that time to be a pit bull in trying to get Pelosi to give more direct answers on the call she made to delay compromise on a COVID relief bill as well as the “sticking points” she has this time around, but she’s been continuously dodging him, even during her weekly press conferences where there are only five total reporters in attendance.
