Nancy Pelosi is one busy 80-year old. Armed with power she’s never had before, the House Speaker successfully led the impeachment of President Trump for the second time this week, and now she has her sights set on other Republicans.
There have been numerous House Democrats who have hinted that some of their GOP colleagues may have played a role in helping the Capitol rioters by giving some of them tours of the building the day before the riots on Jan. 6. That apparently has peaked Pelosi’s interest enough for her to announce that those claims will be looked into. “If, in fact, it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to this insurrection — if they aided and abetted the crime, there may have to be actions taken beyond the Congress in terms of prosecution for that,” Pelosi said Friday at a news conference.
Also at her press conference on Friday Pelosi did not say if she was planning on sending over the article of impeachment to the Senate, but her nine impeachment members she said are putting the case together to try to convict Trump in the Senate. “Right now, our managers are solemnly and prayerfully preparing for the trial, which they will take to the Senate.”
