(Politico) Speaker Nancy Pelosi said there was never “any hatchet” to bury with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, praising the high-profile freshman after the two met privately Friday to move past their feud that erupted earlier this month.
Pelosi went on to describe Ocasio-Cortez as “gracious” and downplayed the fight between the two as a family disagreement.
