Newsline: Claims that Nancy Pelosi wants to be the US Ambassador to Italy rejected as ‘nonsense’

Nancy Pelosi’s office is pushing back on the ‘utter nonsense’ report that the Speaker will abandon her House leadership role to be U.S. Ambassador to Italy if Republicans take a majority after the 2022 midterms. ‘The Speaker has no interest in this position and has not discussed it with anyone in the White House,’ Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hammill told DailyMail.com. A Monday report claims that Pelosi, 82, has no interest in returning to a minority leader role in Congress. According to Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, sources claim President Joe Biden is holding onto the U.S. ambassador to Italy assignment for Pelosi. ‘This is the second time Maria Bartiromo has proceeded with reporting anonymous rumors about the Speaker’s future that have no merit,’ Hammill accused. ‘And the second time she has failed to ask us for comment before airing or publishing this utter nonsense.’ (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11184993/Pelosis-office-rejects-nonsense-report-wants-Ambassador-Italy-GOP-win-House.html) The White House refused to comment on the report, telling DailyMail.com: ‘We don’t engage in hypotheticals.’
