Pelosi’s Newest Claims are as WHACKED as She Is

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi continues to astound reasonable people with her outrageous charges against the Trump administration. Working off of fake news from The New York Times, a not so trustworthy piece of media, she has charged Reince Priebus with pressuring the FBI. She also sees a Russian agent behind every Trump staff member.  

As Written by Gregg Jarrett for Fox News:
Nancy Pelosi is nothing, if not inane.
She is, of course, the former Speaker of the House who infamously said of ObamaCare, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.”
And who can forget the time she claimed that “500 million people will lose their jobs each month until we have an economic package” ?  Which is a pretty neat trick since there are roughly 300 million people living in the U.S.

So, it is understandable that Pelosi’s latest statement was met with the usual eye-rolling. She all but accused the Trump White House of obstructing justice when she described Chief of Staff Reince Priebus’s conversation with a senior FBI official as “a grave abuse of power…which may also be illegal.”
Some background is helpful. Priebus says he was approached by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who described as inaccurate a New York Times article about repeated contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign. Priebus allegedly asked the FBI to correct the record by disabusing the story with the truth. Since Justice Department guidelines prohibit the FBI from speaking about an ongoing investigation, the agency declined to comment.

(Of course, FBI Director James Comey, seemed to ignore those same guidelines when he chose to disclose details of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, but there is no shortage of hypocrisy in Washington.)
Pelosi, who is prone to batty remarks, promptly denounced Priebus and convicted the president for his “explosive ties… to Russian intelligence….
