Pelosi’s Whopper of an Answer When Pressed on FBI Raid Explains the DC Swamp in a Nutshell – Opinion

There have been a lot of things said by powerful Democrats in the aftermath of the brazen Monday raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home by the FBI, but perhaps none were more unintionally revealing than comments made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

During a Tuesday interview with “Today Show” co-host Savannah Guthrie, Pelosi was asked about the FBI’s actions and what she made of them. She claimed she didn’t know any more about the rationale behind it than what had already been reported by the mainstream media. But when she was asked in a follow-up question about House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) remarks urging DOJ Attorney General Merrick Garland to “preserve your documents and clear your calendar” for questioning should the GOP take back the House, it was then that Pelosi jumped on her high horse:

Pelosi said “whatever the leader is saying is probably idle,” adding she believes Democrats will win the House in the 2022 election, referencing the strides Democrats have made in recent days with the passage of the climate, tax and health care bill in the Senate.

“But nonetheless, we believe in the rule of law. That’s what our country is about,” Pelosi said. “And no person is above the law. The president of the United States is not above the law. Not even a former president of the United States.”

The clip starts at 2:42:42.

You really are? You could’ve fooled many of us.

The way the world looks now, Nancy and Paul Pelosi seem to be above the law. Joe Biden and Hunter Biden have no regard for the law. Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton are above law. Hillary Clinton clearly knows. All of the late Jeffrey Epstein’s clients – whoever and wherever they are, because the authorities won’t say – are above the law, too, at least at this stage in the game.

This is another option:

Importantly, Trump must remember that the law is not above him. If he has indeed done something wrong, let’s find out what it is and let the chips fall where they may. However, the problem is that there are different standards for Republicans and Democrats.

Back in 2008, failed (and disgraced) Democratic vice presidential candidate and former Sen. John Edwards (NC) soaringly coined a phrase about the disparities between the rich and everyone else, calling it “two Americas.” What he didn’t mention in that speech but what is perhaps even more prevalent than the “two Americas” theory is that there is a two-tiered justice system in America as far as politicians and other public figures are concerned.

There’s the one that lets Democrats off the hook for very serious violations of the public’s trust, and the one that throws the book at Republicans no matter how small the alleged offense.
