Pelosi Rips Repubs. For ‘Normalizing Lawlessness’ In Scathing Op-Ed

dublinbay z6 (KS)

You tell 'em, Nancy!

-----------------------------------

"Nancy Pelosi on Friday launched a fresh attack on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and the GOP senators who earlier this week voted to acquit President Donald Trump on impeachment charges.

The Democratic House speaker, in a searing editorial for The Washington Post titled “McConnell and the GOP Senate are accomplices to Trump’s wrongdoing,” accused them of “normalizing lawlessness and rejecting the checks and balances of our Constitution.”

Pelosi noted how Trump’s defense team “all but” conceded the president’s misconduct in the Ukraine scandal. . . . "

“Their argument was only that Congress and the American people have no right to stop him from using his power to cheat in our elections,” said Pelosi. . . .

Pelosi said Senate Republicans had “embraced this darkest vision of power: that if the president believes his reelection is good for the country, he can then use any means necessary to win, with no accountability or consequences.”

“In declaring their loyalty to the president over our Constitution, Republicans have made a farce of the old boast that the U.S. Senate is the greatest deliberative body in the world,” she added, warning that “because of the Republican Senate’s betrayal of the Constitution, the president remains an ongoing threat to American democracy.”

"Scathing Op-Ed"--sounds about right. Bullseye!

''You tell 'em, Nancy!''

Yes, tell us, Nancy, how you put together the phony impeachment real quick because you know you will be busted for your family's corruption activity in Ukraine. It's coming, Nancy, you know very well that Trump has a grip of a bulldog.

And tell us what law you broke when you ripped apart the State of the Union Address.

We understand that you are in a political agony, but hold onto your teeth and brace up yourself.

1. Oh dear, now the Pelosis and the Bidens have done corrupt things in the Ukraine? Who’s next? Mayor Pete? Amy? Lassie?

2. Contrary to what righties keep repeating from the nonsense they hear from Trump, Fox, etc., Nancy did nothing illegal when she ripped up Trump’s horrid speech. Google it. She did that “speech” a favor!

3. Nancy rips up a piece of paper, but Trump and the Republicans rip up the Constitution everyday. Not to mention giving the medal of freedom to a racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, conspiracy theorist gasbag. Shame on all of them.

Nancy certainly has more spine and backbone than all the R’s in Congress. She is not intimidated by Trump at all like they are. Go Nancy!

As the water levels of the swamp lower, the deep state's head starts to be exposed. This needed to happen this way in order for them to out themselves. They are exposed now.

Meet the guys who tape Trump's papers back together.

The president's unofficial 'filing system' involves tearing up documents into pieces, even when they're supposed to be preserved.

It wasn’t illegal for Speaker Pelosi to rip up her own personal copy of Trump's speech, which was not the official version sent to the National Archives under the Presidential Records Act.

I looked it up, you are right, it wasn't. Disrespectful, unethical but not illegal.

Anyone getting their undies in a bunch over Pelosi tearing her copy of the speech need to turn their objection to the National Archives destroying official ICE documents. If you're that concerned about protecting official documents, that is.

A lot has recently been normalized that would have never been considered acceptable behavior prior to handing the nation's microphone to trump and his fan club.

What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

Just keep demonstrating the hypocrisy for everyone to see. The false smears and baseless accusations reflect clearly on those delivering them.

And apparently some people do not understand that truth vs. falsity is not equivalent, when it comes to our president and his actions and words.

That was a hard lesson for the left to learn. They still don't get it.

Considering the impeachment process started the day Trump was elected , she has proven nothing but that TDS is a disease.

Pelosi didn't start the impeachment process until last Sept once the Ukraine scandal broke, the repubs were in charge for the first 2 years of the trump administration and ran the Mueller probe. If Pelosi had been in charge at the start she would have gone with the Stormy scandal, it had everything repubs love for impeachment, sex, money, and cover up.

In the ''dictator'' thread I didn't see a single comment of that nature from the left. In fact, it was the opposite - posting fakes supposed to reveal how integrity works.
