Pelosi: GOP is trying to ‘get away with murder’ of George Floyd

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went all-in on Congressional Republicans on Tuesday, accusing them of “trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd” because they aren’t cooperating with her police reform proposal.

Pelosi told CBS News Radio correspondent Steve Futterman in an interview that the Senate’s police reform bill is “unsalvageable” and won’t make “any difference.”

The Senate’s police reform bill was introduced by the Senate’s lone Black member, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), and House Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in early June.

Scott’s bill includes a slew of police reform proposals, but rejects a revision of qualified immunity that Democrats have chosen as their hill to die on. Additionally, Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues want a total ban on chokeholds, another no-go for Republicans.

Pelosi is furious that the Senate is moving ahead with a vote on Scott’s bill instead of listening to her. She told Futterman:

For something to happen, they’re going to have to face the realities of police brutalities, the realities of the need for justice in policing, and the recognition that there’s many good people in law enforcement, but not all. And that we have to address those concerns.

So, when they admit that, and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration — but so far they were trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd.

Pelosi’s accusation that Scott is somehow responsible for the murder of George Floyd prompted widespread outcry and demands for apologies. In another interview on Wednesday, though, she doubled down on her firey claim.

When asked in an interview on MSNBC whether she would apologize to Scott, she replied: “Absolutely, positively not,” adding that the media gives Republicans “far too much credit for a bill that does nothing.”

Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) have accused the GOP of refusing to make meaningful change, ignoring the fact that the GOP bill would authorize a national database of police use-of-force incidents, restrict police chokeholds and set up new training procedures and commissions to study race and law enforcement, among many other proposals. It’s not good enough for radicals in D.C. that seek to completely eviscerate law enforcement agencies nationwide.

“Granny Nancy” Thinks With He Fanny!” How else do you describe her silliness. She, Waters, Biden, Nadler and Ginsburg are proof positive evidence of the need of Three, Two Year Terms and a Seventy Year Maximum Age Limit for service. Dr. David McCoy

She’s way past needing to be put out to pasture. She can’t lead our Nation, she has blinders on. ALL of these people in Congress who have nested there for over 40 years needs to pack up and leave. They BELIEVE they know what’s best for our Country but in actuality, they only know how to rob, cheat, and steal from hardworking taxpayers padding their pockets and their mansions with their walls around them. Get REAL Nancy Pelosi!!! You’re no better than your counterparts and people are disgusted by you!!

First of all we need to vote them all out. They don’t care about anyone or the death of people. They’re trying to get votes and will say anything people want to hear. This Country is spiraling down because grown as adults in Congress refuse to work with OUR President because they don’t like him. If they worked in the real world, they’d be fired!!!

There needs to be a term limit and Nancy’s expired a decade ago. The woman is the worse house speaker. She doesn’t speak clearly or makes any sense. Smiling as she’s speaking makes her look crazier. Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer & Nadler, should of been working for the people rather than trying to impeach the President. We listened & waited for the Mueller report which was fake & cost lots of money. Now that Barr hired Durham to investigate the investigators, it’s suddenly a waste of time Diane & Democrats. It’s time we see the real reason our President has been under a microscope before winning the election. That’s scary for the safety & Security of our country. Democrats like to point fingers, accuse, assume, expose, but can’t handle when is their turn to be exposed. Civilization in America needs the truth to come out.

How much longer do we have to put up with the lying, cheating Democrats, Pelosi and Schumer to name a few? I’m sick and tired of her trying to ramrod all her ideas through Congress and senate to prove she is all powerful? She is determined not to work with the Republicans’. They are ruining our country and have no respect for our President or you and I. I pray everyone who is of voting age will get out and vote Republican tickets and get rid of the Democrats who are causing the trouble, it is UN-AMERICAN. They are traitors and need to be arrested and hung for their crimes of treason. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!

Ms Pelosi ‘s time has come and gone – she has caused more problems within our “rule of law” and should be voted out as Speaker House- we need people who love America and are willing to work to get us back to our roots- Retire Ms Pelosi and go home and knit!!!

I believe a good pseudonym name for “Nancy Pelosi” for the past 3+ years is Contrary Mary”. Per HRC requests/commands.
Nancy is determined to get the Last words, “My way or the highway…No!

Oh, please Mr. Jim believe that there’s a GOD. How can you look around you, and see all the beauty in the flowers, trees and hillsides and not believe in GOD? GOD, does care about you and our everyday life. He sent his own SON, JESUS, to die on the cross for us. He’s with us every sec, min, hour of the day and night. All you have to do is ask JESUS to come into your heart to stay with you. Believe and you will have eternal life. I know I’m 76 yrs young, but I don’t feel afraid to die, because I KNOW JESUS is with me. We have trials and tribulations everyday of our lives. GOD watches how you accept these and helps you to grow stronger. Put your faith and love in GOD. He won’t fail you. PRAY, PRAY, Talk to him, tell him your troubles.

Nancy Pelosi is so determined to get rid of President Trump that she is no longer even making sense. She needs some psychological evaluation to help her began to think reasonably and do her job of working for the people instead of constantly telling lies about our President and the Republican members of the Senate and Congress.

Pelosi is so out of touch with reality and so far left of the norm, why is she still in office?

Nancy Pelosi is one sock person. She has to go. She is evil. I know she says she prays everyday but for what. Love to be a fly on the wall. She has done nothing for American people. She is only interested in power and protecting all the crap Democrats have done. When President Trump and Bill Barr expose it all their piggy bank will once and for all be broken. Can’t wait

NANCY IS INDEED POWER HUNGRY. SINCE TRUMP & PENCE TRAVEL TOGETHER ON AIR FORCE 1, SHE’D BE MORE THAN HAPPY IF AN ACCIDENT HAPPENED SO SHE COULD TAKE OVER THE PRESIDENT’S JOB. STAYS AT HER COMFY HOME WHILE EVERYONE ELSE IS WORKING IN DC. SHE HAS ALREADY SPENT 9T DOLLARS OF OUR TAX MONEY TO GIVE TO HER CRONIES RATHER THAN GIVE TO THE NEEDS OF OUR PEOPLE WHO’VE HAD TO STAY HOME DUE TO THE VIRUS & STAY SAFE. SHE GETS PAID NO MATTER WHAT. THAT TOO, NEEDS TO BE CHANGED ASAP!! THEY DON’T WORK, THEY DON’T GET PAID – JUST LIKE THE REST OF US!! WE WANT OUR TAX MONEY PAID BACK. WE DO NOT AGREE WITH HER VIEWS. OUR COUNTRY IS WORSE OFF WITH SHE AND HER ILK IN CONGRESS!! THAT’S WHAT THEY’VE SPENT THEIR TIME ON FOR MORE THAN 3 1/2 YEARS!! TOTAL WASTE OF TIME & MONEY!!
SHE HAS BEEN BEHIND AND CONTRIBUTED TO ALL THESE ATTEMPTS TO REMOVE OUR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. THEY’VE USED EVERY TRICK IN THE BOOK AND MANAGED TO COME UP WITH NEW WAYS TO TAKE HIM DOWN – UNLAWFULLY!! INDEED – WHY DOES SHE STILL HAVE A JOB AND THAT’S TRUE OF THE REST OF THE ONES WHO’VE BEEN PROVEN TO BE WRONG – LIES AND MORE LIES – THAT’S WHAT THEY ARE GOOD AT. THEY NEED TO BE IMPEACHED OR WORSE!!! A TRAVESTY!! LM

Polisi is a big but that follows that @$$hole from New York senator Schumer along with all dumbocrates that are high rip-offs that the people New Yorkers and people of United States. Polosi don’t like Trump and vise versa as they work against each other Trump reccamends something tó get anything rolling she and her dumbocrates say it’s not. It’s the same with her but it has to go through the Senate and they drop it. She has gone crazy and seniale after Trump won his impeachment.

Pelosi has been irrational for years and now her condition borders on advanced dementia. If Congress was a responsible government body, people like that would be encouraged to retire and removed from office if they don’t. I haven’t heard her say anything that was logical or realistic for a very long time and her blatant disregard for everyone but herself is disgusting. She’s been allowed to become a Democrat tyrant in the House and Congress as a whole.

Pelosi needs to be able sent home to stay. She is a danger to our nation, and has no other motive than to cause trouble for President Trump and the Republican party. Lies mean nothing to her. She wants Biden elected President so she can rule the White House. She knows that Biden is mentally incapable of running the country and that he will listen to her. What a shame.

Pelosi is on a power trip. Now she tripping herself. She needs to be impeached. She does not care about the people, she simply thinks she can talk her way into or out of anything. Why is she working at her age? Put her out to pasture one way or another. Or put her on duty with a few cops in a
Rough area. She might get a clue
