As Americans, we have long witnessed the warped way in which the liberal mind works in order to vilify Donald Trump, with the incredibly popular former President being forced to constantly defend himself against all manner of political attacks – nearly constantly.
This is no different today, as Trump faces an indictment in New York on charges stemming from an investigation into alleged “hush money” payments to former adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
Perhaps the most egregious misinterpretation of the situation comes to us from former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who appeared to rewrite the entire ethos of the judicial system in order to take a shot at Trump.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared to invert the U.S. justice system in a statement Thursday as she was reacting to news that a Manhattan grand jury had voted to indict former President Donald Trump.
Pelosi, the former House speaker, placed the burden of proof in legal cases on defendants, saying that “everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence” and that the justice system “grants [Trump] that right.”
Pelosi seemed rather confused about the concept of “innocent until proven guilty”.
“The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law,” Pelosi wrote on social media. “No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence. Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.”
Pelosi is legally controversial in her own right, as she and her husband Paul have been accused of massive swaths of insider trading, making money moves that defy the stock market that can often be tied back to knowledge that Pelosi herself could only have gleaned from her role in the American legislative system.
