Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (Nancy Pelosi) said in an interview scheduled for “60 minutes” on Sunday night that President Trump “is in trouble, without obstacles, and danger” and should be prosecuted.
After protesters besieged the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, last week, the San Francisco Democrats had a discussion with Leslie Starr of the CBS News program.
“Is anyone running the executive branch of the government? Who is running the executive branch?” Starr asked in a preview clip released by CBS, suggesting that Trump might be criticized for a security breach in the Capitol. Will abdicate in the days when the tenure is gradually reduced.
In response, Pelosi said: “Sadly, the executive executive is a lost, mindless, and dangerous American president.”
“And we only have a few days to be protected from him. But what he did is very serious and he should be prosecuted.”
Pelosi: “Patience” of CAPITOL rioters when they choose democracy
The 80-year-old Pelosi is certainly the angry target of President Trump and other Republicans and Senator Chuck Schumer (DN.Y.), another Democratic leader in the House of Representatives. Republicans generally consider democratic policy proposals to be unnecessary, expensive, overly strict, or a combination of the two.
Before the siege of the Capitol, at a Trump rally near the White House, Rep. Mo Brooks, a supporter of Rep. Trump, Republican of Alabama, wore a red hat as he spoke in the crowd on Wednesday , It says “Fire Pelosi (Fire Pelosi)”.
In another speech at an online conference held with voters in San Francisco on Saturday, Pelosi described the siege of the Capitol from a racial perspective, accusing participants of choosing “for American democracy.” White people”.
Pelosi said: “The world has seen that our people under the leadership of the president have temporarily chosen white people instead of democracy. This has become a world epiphany.” The Associated Press said.
“Nothing on the table”
Subsequently, in the “60 Minutes” clip, Starr asked whether members of Congress had “announced” the 25th Amendment to the Constitution in a conversation in Congress discussing how Congress should announce its response to Trump, which outlined Steps to remove the current president. riot.
“No, no. There is nothing on the table,” Pelosi replied.
What is the 25th amendment? How does it work?
In another CBS preview clip, Pelosi described his experience inside the Capitol when the protesters gathered outside and then entered the building.
Pelosi said: “I was pulled out of the podium, only pulled off the podium.” Probably referring to Congressional security personnel.
The turbulent situation made lawmakers (including Pelosi) seek cover in the building as the protesters violently walked through the corridors and even entered the councillor’s office.
Pelosi told Starr: “They said loudly,’Where is the speaker? We know she has a staff. They are somewhere. We want to find them.” Although it is not clear whether the speaker refers to a security officer or a crowd the member of.
News reports of the siege included at least two widely-spread photos related to Pelosi: in one shot, a person was seen holding a podium, which the authorities said was from the podium in Pelosi’s office, and in another photo, one was seen.
