House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped off at a reporter who dared to ask her a question about Senator Lindsey Graham’s threat to start calling FBI agents to say how the actions at the Capitol had been pre-planned, which would kill the Democrats claim of “incitement” in the impeachment trial.

Apparently she didn’t like having the deficiencies in her alleged case being questioned.
“Your question is a waste of time,” Pelosi shot back at the reporter. Of course, anything she doesn’t like, she’s not going to answer.
She also got a bit snippy when asked if there would be the unlikely event of enough Republicans that would cross the line in a vote on whether to convict. Democrats would need a 2/3 vote.
“They don’t know that. They don’t know that. They don’t know that. They haven’t heard the case. They don’t have the case. In the court of the Senate, they will make their case. In the court of public opinion, they will make their case,” she said.
“And we’ll see. We’ll see if it’s going to be a Senate of courage, or cowards,” she continued.
But then when she was asked about the Democrats stripping Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of her committee assignments, if she was worried about setting a bad precedent. Of course she wasn’t.
“If any of our members threatened the safety of other members, we’d be the first ones to take them off of committee. That’s it. Thank you,” Pelosi said.
Was Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) removed from committees when she encouraged people against Trump officials? “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, at a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Answer: of course she wasn’t.
Was Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) removed from very significant intelligence and homeland security committees when it was found that he had a relationship with a Chinese spy? That doesn’t just compromise the members, that potentially threatens the country. Answer: no.
Were any members removed from committees for demonizing the Republicans during the healthcare debate which led to series of attacks on Republicans including the infamous GOP baseball practice shooting where four people including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) were shot? Answer: no.
Were any members removed from committees for falsely calling their colleagues insurrectionists or supporting insurrection, as Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said about Rep. Burgess Owens (R-UT)? Answer: not yet and liberals were cheering the video of his lie.
Funny how Democrats can’t seem to handle any questioning about their efforts to consolidate their political control.
