House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, having twice impeached President Trump without evidence, now apparently wants to prosecute Republican House members for allegedly aiding the Capitol rioters, again without evidence.
Pelosi’s desire to expel elected Representatives just for supporting what they assumed would be a peaceful rally or using their Constitutional power to challenge a vote they considered suspect was so over the top that even a liberal columnist in the Washington Post condemned it. He pointed out that under such a House precedent, “any member who helps to organize a mass rally that is disliked by a super majority of Congress could be at risk of expulsion or censure. We cannot have a democracy where minorities are subject to sanction when they legally protest against an existing majority.”
