A slip of the tongue or a declaration? About Donald Trump’s indictment, Nancy Pelosi said, “No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence,” she said. [added emphasis]
Democrats do seem to think people have to prove their innocence at trial. Democrats are too comfortable saying the quiet part out loud.
Some say she said this mistakingly. However, she has said it before. In 2019, Pelosi told reporters that President Trump admitted to ‘bribing Ukraine.’ He never did, but she said it anyway. She moved to impeach him.
Fox News reporter Chad Pergram asked Pelosi why the public would not think that the House is dead set on impeaching the President.
“It’s called an impeachment inquiry, and if the president has something that is exculpatory — Mr. President, that means if you have anything that shows your innocence — then he should make that known,” Pelosi said.
She wanted him to prove he was innocent. Nothing changed with the trial. There was no evidence he bribed Ukraine.
So, here she goes again. Pelosi must think we’re France. That’s how they do it.
The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law.
No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence.
Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.

Democrats seem to believe that Republicans are guilty until they prove their innocence and the Government shouldn’t disclose exculpatory evidence when a Conservative is charged.
Foul besotted sloth…hey nancy, you and fauci should be indicted for mass murder…you have the right to a trial to PROVE your innocence..
The brain dead said Trump was a tyrant…obviously the brain dead know not the meaning of the word…unless google supplied one…and are begging to be tyrannised…
It occurred to me this isn’t the first time a democrat used that phrase. Thinking back, there have been a number who have spilled the beans with the same rhetoric.
Unfortunately too many people think that is what a trial means, a chance to prove innocence. They accept all charges as being true unless a person can prove innocence. More and more I hear of cases where innocent people plead guilty because if they don’t they will receive even more obscene sentences.
