Fox News had requested comment several times — including multiple phone calls to Pelosi’s office — with inquiries about whether she opposed the ideology and whether she would allow any self-described socialists elected in the Democratic caucus to hold leadership positions in the House of Representatives.

During a press conference on Friday, Pelosi acknowledged that there was a “difference of opinion” among members of her caucus as a rift between moderates and progressives appears to have expanded following the 2020 election.

Back in 2019, Pelosi insisted during a “60 Minutes” interview that socialism was “not the view” of her party.
