Larson: 'Nancy Pelosi is not in any trouble'

The fourth-ranking House Democrat vehemently backed Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Monday, asserting there is no chance at all that there will be a change in Democrats' leadership.

"The Democratic Caucus stands firmly behind Nancy Pelosi, as does Steny Hoyer stand with her," House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson (D-Conn.) said during an appearance on MSNBC.

When asked if there would be any change in the Democratic leadership over Pelosi's accusations that the CIA misled Congress in intelligence briefings, Larson said, "No. None whatsoever."

"I mean, she has done an outstanding job moving this nation forward, working directly with Barack Obama," Larson continued. "That's the important thing. Only inside the Beltway is this a distraction."

The Connecticut lawmaker's comments are maybe the strongest to back Pelosi after she's fallen under Republican scrutiny in recent weeks.

"Believe me when I say this: Nancy Pelosi is not in any trouble," Larson added. "If anything, the wagons are circling more around the speaker during this time."
