PELOSI PUZZLES PRESS: Nancy Says Even if President Trump is Acquitted… ‘He Will Not Be Acquitted’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.30.20

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi puzzled members of the press during her weekly briefing Thursday; bizarrely asserting President Trump “will not be acquitted” if he’s ultimately acquitted by the United States Senate.

“When this is over, do you think that President Trump will understand that he’s got a Congress watching this? Or will he be emboldened because the Senate will have acquitted him? asked one reporter.

“Well, he will not be acquitted. You cannot be acquitted if you don’t have a trial. You don’t have a trial if you don’t have witnesses and documentation,” said Pelosi.

Pelosi doubled-down on her demands for more witnesses in the ongoing Senate impeachment trial last Sunday; saying Republicans must permit further investigations or “pay a price.”

“It’s about a fair trial. They take an oath to have a fair trial. We think that would include witnesses and documentation. The ball is now in their court, so either do that or pay a price,” warned Pelosi.

Pelosi addressed reporters from the US Capitol last Thursday after signing her Articles of Impeachment, saying the entire process is not a “question of proof” but “allegations.”

“It’s not a question of proof, it says what allegations have been made. That has to be subjected to scrutiny as to how we go forward, but it should not be ignored in the context of other events that could substantiate some of that,” said Pelosi.
