Pelosi spars with progressive party members

Wednesday's hearing on immigration jails came as one of the House Oversight Committee's most prominent members-New York's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-called for the Department of Homeland Security to be dismantled.

'Maybe you didn't hear what I said.

Chakrabarti made the comments during a meeting with Sam Ricketts, the climate director for presidential candidate Jay Inslee. Climate change is the centerpiece of Inslee's run for president. I agree with the Speaker. Inslee's plan proposes transitioning to 100 percent clean energy, prioritizing on environmental and economic justice, and ending fossil fuel subsidies.

"I think I've had one or two conversations", she said.

And the speaker snapped back at journalists who tried to question her further on the feud.

Said Pelosi Thursday in response, "We respect the value of every member of our caucus". Unity is our power. "But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK".

Clay also slammed "juvenile" Chakrabarti, who idolizes Nazi sympathizers, after Chakrabarti said that centrist Democrats were "hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s".

He later deleted the post. But I do think if we don't have progress on racial justice it will be because of the new Dems and blue dogs.

Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO) blasted socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for suggesting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was targeting her because Pelosi was racist, saying that it shows "how weak" Ocasio-Cortez's "argument is".

Sensing a need for communication, Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI), a co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, told reporters that he was working to secure a meeting between members of his group and party leadership, including Pelosi, to talk about "a whole bunch of things". In April, Pelosi said that a glass of water with a "D" next to it could win in Ocasio-Cortez's district.
