"We have unity in our caucus," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at a Thursday press conference on Capitol Hill.
"There's no question, the White House is just crying out for impeachment," @SpeakerPelosi says. "That's why he flipped yesterday...[Reporters] want to believe there's all this unease in our caucus, that simply isn't the truth...We have unity in our caucus."— Elaine Godfrey (@elainejgodfrey) May 23, 2019
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), whose Kentucky Fried Chicken stunt during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Mueller report earlier this month was roasted by just about everyone, did not get Pelosi's memo. Instead of doing his part to make the Democrats at least appear united, Cohen publicly berated the speaker for driving in the slow lane on impeachment. He implored her in a CNN interview to move ahead with the proceedings. If she doesn't, she is simply unpatriotic.

"She needs to do what's right," he said.
"When you have a Constitution and you have a rule of law, and it’s being destroyed in a reckless gangster manner, you need to act," he added. "I think the only reason not to act is because of politics. Patriotism says act."
Pelosi held multiple meetings with her fellow Democrats this week on impeachment which, again, did not exactly scream unity.
