Nancy Pelosi Accuses Trump of Causing a Constitutional Crisis by Exposing FBI Coup

Obviously enraged, Nancy Pelosi accuses Donald Trump and Devin Nunes of what amounts to treason—obviously projecting.

Nancy Pelosi accuses Donald Trump of failing to protect a criminal organization that is directly attacking his Presidency. That’s what her accusation amounts to.

The FBI is not listed in the Constitution. It is a bureaucracy that did not exist during much of the history of the United States. On the other hand, the presidency is established in the Constitution and the Fourth Amendment was in the Constitution from the time is was ratified. Pelosi is the one starting a Constitutional crisis.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) blasted President Donald Trump and House Republicans for their decision to release a controversial four-page memo alleging abuse of surveillance authority by the Justice Department and the FBI, saying it could ultimately cause a “constitutional crisis.”

“He has abdicated his responsibilities as commander in chief to protect the American people by protecting our intelligence sources and the rest,” she said of Trump. ““If the president uses this fake, horrible release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [deputy attorney general Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis.”

In Chicago for a town hall meeting on the Trump tax plan, Pelosi also called House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) a “stooge for the president.”

Pelosi noted Nunes was supposed to have recused himself from the Russia investigation last year, and she said he should resign for releasing what she called a release of “distorted intelligence.”

“He should not be the chairman of the committee,” Pelosi said.

“It’s appalling. It’s a misrepresentation. It isn’t even the release of intelligence material. It’s a release of a distortion of it,” Pelosi said. “They’re not representing the facts to the American people, and yet the president has given it his imprimatur. This is unprecedented to the nth degree.”
