House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is refusing to apologize for her scandalous comments about the Senate GOP and police reform.
Pelosi infamously said recently that Republicans were “trying to urge away with murder, the murder of George Floyd.”
She doesn’t care if she loses credibility as long as she will pretend to try to to something for her base when actually she is simply taking cheap political shots – all talk no action.
Empty and useless and Mitch McConnell even predicted it might come to the present . “What fascinating times we sleep in ,” he mocked.
From The Washington Times:
“Absolutely, positively not,” Mrs. Pelosi said on MSNBC, saying the press has given Senate Republicans an excessive amount of credit for his or her offer on policing legislation.
“They’re saying, ‘well you’ve got your bill. they need theirs.’ Yeah, our bill does something — theirs doesn’t,” said Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat. “When you beat the press say well, can’t you compromise? No, we can’t compromise if you say ‘no chokeholds’ and that they say ‘some chokeholds.’”
Senate Republicans’ bill provides incentives for enforcement to ban practices like chokeholds and involves more reporting on the execution of “no-knock” warrants, while House Democrats’ bill includes outright bans on the practices.
“Their bill may be a non-starter,” she said.
On Tuesday, Mrs. Pelosi said Republicans were trying to “get away with murder” within the ongoing push for brand spanking new laws within the wake of the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police last month.
“So far, they were trying to urge away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd,” she told CBS News.
Earlier Wednesday, Senate legislator McConnell called it a “jaw-dropping” comment.
“Trying to urge away with murder? The murder of George Floyd? That’s the speaker of the House accusing Senate Republicans of trying to urge away with murder?” said Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican.
“Are you starting to see how this game works?” he said.
