Sources from the White House said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was kicked out of a meeting by her own party.

On Thursday, an anonymous Democrat staffer reported Pelosi said she was “leaving anyway” after Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) kicked her out of a Progressive Caucus meeting. Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill claimed she entered and quickly left the confidential meeting to drop a letter off.

This comes amid Pelosi’s efforts to persuade progressives to sign off on the bipartisan infrastructure bill.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) also took aim at Pelosi for the Democrats’ mixed messaging in Congress. McCarthy asserted Pelosi has “destroyed this institution and its ability to function.”

He went on to add he no longer believes Democrats like Pelosi have the will to keep the House in 2022. McCarthy noted while it appears Democrats have different priorities, Republicans will be ready to put America back on the field and turn the country around in order to build a nation that Americans can be proud of.

In the meantime, the bipartisan infrastructure bill must pass the House before it reaches Joe Biden’s desk.
