Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is supposed to be one of Joe Biden’s closest allies.
But Pelosi is doing Biden no favors.
And that’s because Nancy Pelosi made Joe Biden’s life a living hell with this admission about arresting Trump.
Special counsel Jack Smith bludgeoned the First Amendment with a sledgehammer by turning Donald Trump’s constitutionally protected right to challenge the results of the 2020 election into a criminal conspiracy.
The thrust of Smith’s charges is that no one is allowed to question election results if the Democrat Party wins or now face jail time.
Pelosi appeared on left-wing activist Jake Tapper’s CNN show where Tapper asked Pelosi what it meant for the country to have a former president facing 78 criminal charges at the state and federal level.
Tapper, of course, never mentioned the fact that every one of these cases was brought by a Democrat prosecutor to time the trials with an election.
Democrat prosecutors Smith and George Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg also ramped up their investigations after Donald Trump announced he was running for re-election last November.
Pelosi put on a painfully transparent act pretending she thought that this was a somber day for the United States of America.
“It’s heartbreaking for our country to have a president of the United States with this list of charges against him,” Pelosi began.
But then Pelosi let the mask slip.
Pelosi launched into a long-winded answer thanking the January 6 committee – which was led by Adam Schiff and Liz Cheney – for paving the way for Smith’s indictment.
“I just want to commend the January 6th committee, the House committee, Benny Thompson and Liz Cheney and all the members of the committee and the staff and the work they did. They made a foundation of facts, about facts and the law, and made a criminal referral to the Justice Department. That was in December, the end of last year, 2022. We didn’t know what we couldn’t know. It wasn’t our role to know what the Justice Department would do, if anything. So when it became clear that there would be criminal charges made, it’s interesting to see how similar they are to some of the charges recommended by the January 6th committee,” Pelosi began.
Reporter Julie Kelly even noted that Smith’s indictment read like a paraphrased version of the January 6 report.

It’s obvious Smith lifted a lot of his claims from report.

Pelosi then doubled down on congratulating the committee for making Smith’s sham charges against Trump possible through the show trial hearings they ran last year.
“I commend, again, the committee. I’m so proud of them, their courage, their bravery, and the courage really of all of those who are making the case now. Of course, the former president is innocent until proven guilty. No one is above the law, and the assault that they are making on the rule of law in the country is really a sad thing. I’m sure it would bring tears to the eyes of our Founders,” Pelosi added.
Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy ripped the Smith indictment as an impeachment proceeding masquerading as a criminal case.
McCarthy didn’t know how right he was as Pelosi admitted she put the January 6 committee together to do the leg work so the Biden Justice Department could arrest Joe Biden’s chief political rival in the 2024 election.
