So what about that secret Pelosi letter? The one being circulated among defeated members of the Democratic caucus asking Pelosi not to run? The one obtained by Fox News?
I just spoke to a senior staffer in the office of one of those defeated Democrats. And this is a member who had been quite critical of Speaker Pelosi for some time. No one’s sent or shown the letter to them. They’ve heard about it from reporters. But not from any other congressional offices.
Makes me pretty skeptical.
