WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been unshakable as she’s guided her caucus toward the decision she announced Thursday that the House will vote on articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. But when a reporter questioned whether she was doing so because she hates Trump, Pelosi exploded.

The heated exchange, occurring at the end of Pelosi’s weekly news conference, culminated in a warning from the speaker that was directed at James Rosen from the Sinclair Broadcast Group. But it is a broader indication that she is ready to brush off any attacks that come her way as the House moves to impeach Trump.

“Don’t mess with me,” Pelosi said.
