Pelosi Denies Maria Bartiromo’s Report That She’s Seeking Ambassador to Italy Role from Biden

Nancy Pelosi has denied a report from Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo that the Democrat speaker is seeking a cushy new role from President Joe Biden.

Bartiromo claims Pelosi wants Biden to appoint her as the next U.S. ambassador to Italy when her speakership and term in Congress come to an end.

Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, attempted to throw cold water on the report by claiming it is false.

“The speaker has no interest in this position and has not discussed it with anyone in the White House,” Hammill said.

“This is the second time Maria Bartiromo has proceeded with reporting anonymous rumors about the Speaker’s future that have no merit.

“And the second time she has failed to ask us for comment before airing or publishing this utter nonsense.”

Bartiromo reported:

“Sources tell FOX Business that Pelosi wants President Biden to nominate her to become the next U.S. ambassador to Italy if the GOP takes the House majority in the midterm elections.

“Biden is holding the spot for the speaker, sources say, which is one reason he has yet to fill the position since taking office.

“Speculation earlier this year that a Pelosi ally and former Wall Street executive wanted the job has shifted with the increasing likelihood that the GOP takes the majority.

“There was no clarity yet on how a new Senate will react to a Pelosi nomination, but there was a mixed reaction to her in the role from sources this week.”

“Nancy and Paul Pelosi frequently vacation in Italy and the ambassadorship to the Mediterranean country is a coveted post, often given to supporters of the nominating president.

“The speaker has visited Italy at least four times on personal and official visits since 2015.

“Taxpayers paid more than $184,000 for Pelosi and several other Democrats to visit the country in 2015.

“Despite the visit being an official congressional delegation, four family members reportedly joined Pelosi, and attendees dined at the $190-per-plate James Beard American Restaurant.”
