Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is losing it. She accused President Trump of being an accessory to murder and instigating an insurrection.
In an interview on MSNBC, Pelosi, the third highest-ranking Democrat in the United States, speculated that other Republicans also joined the President in instigating the riot on January 6th. She reasoned thus:
“And if they did, they would be accessory to the crime. And the crime, in some cases, was murder. And this president is an accessory to that crime because he instigated that insurrection that caused those deaths and this destruction.”
Pelosi tied President Trump to the riot and the ensuing deaths because he dared to contest the results of the 2020 election, along with millions of his supporters.
“When we talk about, ‘did any of our colleagues collaborate?’ — that remains to be seen … If they did, they would be accessories to the crime. The crime, in some cases, was murder. This president is an accessory to that crime,” Speaker Pelosi says about the Capitol riot. pic.twitter.com/wZW5AFZmBb

Pelosi went on to say:
A president’s words are important, they weigh a ton. And if you’re DonaldTrump talking to these people, they believe it and they used his words to come here. So, when we talk about ‘did any of our colleagues collaborate?’ Well, that remains to be seen. We have to get the evidence of that.
Pelosi should also acknowledge that the Speaker of the House’s words “weigh a ton,” and when the Speaker deliberately accuses a president of being an accessory to murder, she should be held accountable, too.
If Pelosi really believes what she is saying about Trump instigating the January 6th riot, she should apply the same standard to all the Democrats that encouraged and instigated the riots and insurrection which started in May 2020 and continues to this day in places like Portland.
President Trump told his supporters to protest peacefully. Earlier in the year, Pelosi literally called for “uprisings” all over the country. Will she be held responsible, and will anyone call her an accessory to all the murders committed throughout the “unrest” in the summer of 2020?
