In our news wrap Thursday, tensions simmered between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and four progressives. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called Pelosi’s criticism of her and three other newly elected women “outright disrespectful.” Pelosi said she was rebuking an “offensive tweet" from one of them. Also, the British navy says Iran tried to interfere with a British tanker in the Persian Gulf.
