Turley: Pelosi accuses GOP colleagues of providing ‘aid and comfort’ to rioters

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spent the last four years relentlessly attacking Donald Trump for being “divisive,” but there is none more divisive in Washington D.C. than the Speaker herself.

Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley — himself no Conservative — noted in an op-ed on Saturday that Pelosi is unhinged to the point that she’s attacking her GOP colleagues with serious allegations of giving “aid and comfort” to the Capitol rioters — despite no evidence proving her accusations. 

After Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) accused freshman GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) of personally giving rioters a tour of Washington prior to the January 6 attack, Pelosi did not advocate for a sober examination of the facts.

Instead, Pelosi went nuclear, joining Cohen in the unsubstantiated accusations and charging Boebert of giving “aid and comfort to those with the idea that they were embracing a lie — a lie perpetrated by the president of the United States that the election did not have legitimacy.”

Turley commented on Pelosi’s lack of judgement as a leader:

Like many, I support a commission to look into how these rioters gained such rapid entry into the Capitol Hill.  However, Democratic members have claimed that Republican members were actual co-conspirators in the riot in supplying access to the building to plan out the attack. Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D., N.J.) went public with an extraordinary allegation against some of her colleagues that they conducted secret surveillance in a conspiracy with rioters at the Capitol. Sherrill stated in a Facebook live address to her constituents that she witnessed the surveillance personally. She said unidentified members of Congress “had groups coming through the Capitol” in “a reconnaissance for the next day.”

Sherill has still not supplied any of the names of her colleagues to who worked as inside co-conspirators. As noted earlier, this is an unambiguous allegation of criminal conduct against colleagues.  Either members were conspiring in a crime or Sherill unfairly defamed her colleagues.

One would think that this rising level of acrimony would prompt a Speaker to calm her members and call for an investigation. Speaker Pelosi however proceeded to ramp up the rhetoric.

In the context of alleged criminal conspiracy by members, the use of this language clearly suggested members were more than just politically at fault for their positions. It suggested that they were traitors.

These attacks are coming as some members are calling for the possible expulsion of members for challenging the electoral votes, an act expressly allowed under federal law and repeatedly done by Democrats in prior elections.

Democrats forced Americans to accept a Joe Biden presidency on the premise that the chaos of the last four years would finally be over, but Pelosi’s increasingly unhinged approach to her GOP colleagues proves it was all a lie.

Turley concluded that Pelosi’s rhetoric is “an example of the rage-filled politics that continues to build in our country, including calls for blacklists and punitive measures against anyone deemed supportive of Trump.”

You have that right! The last 12 years have turned me into a person I do not like. I have come to despise the media for their lies and destruction and I have utter contempt for Pelosi, Biden, Schumer, Cheney, Murkowski, Romney, McConnell, CJ Roberts, – and the list goes on. I love that President Trump was NOT a politician, but a loyal American! Those afore mentioned scumbags are trying to totally destroy this patriotic man.

Demonicrats maybe is better?
I’m tired of all this hatred for POTUS Trump, American Citizens, Republicans, and anyone who voted for anyone but Beavis Biden.
Seems now that the amount of hatred that’s been poured out on the above is getting a dose of their own mean-spirited hate.
Maybe we should be better.

Heaven forbid her little terrorist group get the blame. Oh Wait!!! It WAS them breaking into the capital, and the left were the ones who planned it, because they just can’t let go of the fact that Mr. Trump actually did something positive FOR the USA. So as usually, they’ll blame someone else. Their actions will be held accountable, not soon enough for most of us, but they will have to answer the Higher Power someday.

How can we get Trump back in office now? It’s to late, Biden and Harris are both sworn in they are now President and VP. Many people tied, saying fraud, witnesses stating what they had seen. Biden is stopping construction on the wall, 450 miles of the wall is completely finished, and he won’t let the rest be completed. Illegals know what Biden is doing, tens of thousands from Honduras are now coming to the US, they will be taking jobs away from the American people.

Biden can be impeached for China and Ukraine. Harris can be impeached for aiding &abetting the rioters, she bailed them out. Congress can be impeached for inciting violence. Pelousy,schumer,schiff,waters,McConnell, aoc,Omar, and tons of others.
Since our voices where not heard with our vote, we no longer have to pay taxes and support an illegitimate government.

If Biden wants to TRY and eliminate the devisive Climate he should START WITH PIGLOSI,SCHITMER, NADLER, SCHIFF, AND OTHER TRAITORIOUS DEMOCRATS. That would be a GREAT START. Pelosi and Schumer have done more damage to this country than any foreign country could ever hope to do. The really should be tried for TREASON. A FIRING SQUAD WOULD BE IN ORDER!!

Just a few problems with Pisslosi’s accusations. (1) The election was not legitimate, and most of the free world knows it. (2) who authorized the Capital police to open the doors and let the protestors in? Since DC Mayor is Democrat, and they work for her it had to be a Democrat, most likely Pelosi. That why she’s stoking the fire. Diversionary tactics they are famous for. (3) She has no proof of her accusations.

The whole thing was a set up by the demorats to make Trump supporters look bad and if that isn’t true, why are they still looking through video and find Trump supporters that were in DC and arrest them when rioters are in Portland going about their marry way????? Also how did they get video of people breaking into the captial if they didn’t plan it themselves????? Certainly better not even think about trusting this administration because they are as crooked as they come and most are criminals and should be in prison.

I’m angry at the Justice System, state and Gov, we have all seen the faces of the intruders/rioters at the Capital that did the damage, and it was members of the Antfi’s and some Dem’s. Could be a few radical republicans that accompanied them into the Capital but it was the Deml’s that planted these evil people in the crowd dressed as Trump Followers that caused all the damage and scared the poor little Dem’s in office that had to run to the shelter below the Capital for SAFETY. REALLY DEM’S …….WEREN’T YOU INFORMED WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN BY YOUR LEADERS? But WHY DIDN’T THE JUSTICES DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE PEOPLE AND THEN INVESTIGATE THE LEADERS, PIIGOSKI, SCUMMER, WATERS, BIDEN, OBAMA AND ETC.? BTW, if they try to impeach Trump now that he is no longer president, won’t they have to impeach Obama, Bush?

They can’t impeach anyone that is already out of office. They didn’t convict President Trump the first time so that means he can run again for President. They’re too damn old to remember that.

everyone has forgotten about covid 19 it would not surprise me if she and her people had something to do with that as well. remember when it started she was in china town telling everyone to come on down to town everything is going to be ok. she has lost her mine. all she knows how to do is make trouble for the people and she is supposed to be working for us. she is working for herself. that’s how she became so rich off of the American people. It’s time for term limes. she needs to go she has been there too long.

Nancy Pelosi has needed to be replaced as Speaker of The house for a very long time apparently has long been not been able to have any common sense or reasoning in her responsibility. She has lost respect and decorum for proper way to handle business. Tearing up President Trump speech after he delivered it was extremely disrespectful on cameras there.

Texas need to institute its own immigration policy, just as California’s Newson does. Besides with all these states making their own elect laws, I think we should make our own immigration laws. The Supreme Court isn’t going to do any thing any, cause it doesn’t have any standing.

I say we start impeachment hearings on all of the Democrats who: conspired to fund terrorist over the last year while they committed acts of murder, arson, We also use the same maneuvers that they tried to bring against President Trump, where he was unfit for office; no one is acting more insane the Speaker Pelosi, and our new President seems to be just a power hungry junkie looking for his next fix.
