Open Thread | Dolt45 Would Not Have Been Indicted Without the Work of Nancy Pelosi

The Pelosi Factor: Trump’s longtime antagonist played an essential role in his historic indictment.

From the article:

Ultimately, however, you cannot tell the story of Trump’s historic indictment without Nancy Pelosi. It was the then-Speaker of the House who insisted that there be a congressional inquiry following January 6. And it was the work of the select committee she fashioned that finally appears to havespurred a reluctant Justice Department to action, setting in motion a more intense phase of criminal scrutiny focused on Trump’s effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election. The resulting indictment closely tracks the select committee’s work and findings, presenting a factual narrative that traces — almost identically — the evidence presented by the committee of a sophisticated, multipronged effort by Trump to remain in power that culminated in the mayhem at the U.S. Capitol.

“I knew on January 6 that he had committed a crime,” Pelosi told me late Friday afternoon, squeezing me in for a roughly 30-minute interview at the tail end of a remarkable week in Washington.
. . .
In what turned out to have been a historic miscalculation, Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell blocked the initiative in the Senate. “He went around to members and said, ‘Do me a personal favor and do not vote for this,’” Pelosi told me. “Even though he knew that night — and said — that the Republican president was responsible, they didn’t even want to have an investigation.”

Pelosi has earned a reputation as one of the most tactically savvy leaders in the history of the Congress, and she chuckled as she recalled McConnell’s maneuvering. “People said to Mitch, ‘You think Nancy is going to let this go?’ What could he have been thinking?”
. . .
“The indictments against the president are exquisite,” Pelosi added, referring to both the latest set of charges and the earlier federal indictment over Trump’s hoarding of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago and his subsequent efforts to obstruct investigators. “They’re beautiful and intricate, and they probably have a better chance of conviction than anything that I would come up with.”

As for the prospect of a second Trump term, Pelosi immediately recoiled when I brought it up. “Don’t even think of that,” she told me. “Don’t think of the world being on fire. It cannot happen, or we will not be the United States of America.”

“If he were to be president,” she continued, “it would be a criminal enterprise in the White House.”

There was a time in American life, not that long ago, when that would have been clear hyperbole. These are categorically different times.

With Turtle fumbling it….The House was the only show in town. And, once McCarthy, et al, clowned, Speaker Pelosi set up that 1/6 Committee exactly the way she wanted to – without any GOP clown interference. They all played themselves.

There is so much that we need to thank Nancy Pelosi for. That this is part of it, is just wonderful.
She is, and has always been, a True American Patriot.

    Republicans haven’t been a serious political party since Nixon. They were just adept at using dog whistles for their white grievance politics. That’s gone now.

    A restaurant owner, a Republican, was “very proud” of “everything” DeSantis has done — until Florida’s hateful anti-immigration laws forced him to fire 19 employees, some of whom had been on the job for decades.

    Republicans announced their plans to fight back against Democratic efforts to provide free school lunches to children. They released a federal plan calling to end a program that lets states ensure students have a meal at school.

    Michael Oher always hated the Blind Side movie and now comes to find out his “loving parents” were allegedly scamming him the whole time because they saw he could be an NFL player. Movie portrayed him as mentally slow because that helped the white savior plot and helped Sandra…

    “Blind Side” and “Crash” were held up by white folks as being proof of America’s racial progress and white goodness, at the time.

    If these allegations are true, they not only expose said myths, but reveal how white people still brutally rob black people.

    Trump is the racist demagogue the GOP was searching for after both McCain and Romney lost to Obama.
