I already mentioned that I am fed up with hearing people who have been proven to be above the law time and again piously intone about political prosecutions of Republicans that “nobody is above the law.” But here we are again, with Nancy Pelosi tweeting those exact words about Donald Trump.
But note what she also said in an attempt to look as if she were actually defending due process for her opponents: “Everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence.”
You would think that someone who has been a lawmaker in Congress longer than Kayleigh McEnany has been alive would know that it’s not the legal responsibility of the accused to prove his or her innocence. It’s the job of the prosecutor to build a case that an actual crime has been committed and prove guilt to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt (and not to target a particular individual and then try to find something to charge them with.) Absolutely none of that applies to the pending Trump indictment.
But I am glad to hear that Rep. Pelosi agrees that nobody is above the law. I assume she’ll now realize that the paltry $130,000 fine that Hillary Clinton got away with for using campaign funds disguised as legal expenses to pay for the sleazy “Russian dossier” is exactly what Bragg is accusing Trump of doing, and she will demand that Hillary also be indicted on criminal charges immediately. She might also want to demand a Congressional investigation of her own alleged insider trading.
Am I reading you right, Nancy?
