In an MSNBC interview that aired Tuesday night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi floated the astounding idea that former President Trump might be an “accessory to murder” in conjunction with the protest at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month.
Pelosi falsely accused Trump of inciting what she has also falsely called the “insurrection” at the Capitol on January 6. “President’s words are important, they weigh a ton,” she said. “And if you’re Donald Trump talking to these people, they believe it, and they used his words to come here.”
Pelosi added that, if some members of Congress conspired with the people who stormed the Capitol, they too would be considered accessories to crimes committed during the riot: “When we talk about, ‘Did any of our colleagues collaborate?’ Well, that remains to be seen.”
“We have to get the evidence of that. And if they did, they would be accessory to the crime. And the crime, in some cases, was murder. And this president is an accessory to that crime because he instigated that insurrection that caused those deaths and this destruction,” she added.
Nothing is beyond the pale where the left’s obsessive hatred of Trump is concerned, including attempting to convict him of accessory to murder.
