Watch: After House Vote To Handcuff President Trump Video Surfaces That Haunts Pelosi
It has been a tough week for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who’s world is starting to crash around her. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has now given Pelosi a week to hand over the articles of impeachment, Democrats are putting pressure on Pelosi to give the Senate the articles of impeachment and now a video has surfaced that is causing her a lot of grief.
Since President Trump used a drone strike to eliminate Iranian General Qasem Soleimani last week, Pelosi has claimed the President’s use of force was illegal and held a vote on a resolution to limit the power the President has to lead the military. It passed mainly along party lines and has no teeth because it is a “concurrent resolution.” A concurrent resolution definition is “generally employed to address the sentiments of both chambers, to deal with issues or matters affecting both houses, such as a concurrent budget resolution, or to create a temporary joint committee. Concurrent resolutions are not submitted to the president and thus do not have the force of law.”
So basically the House just spent an entire week doing absolutely nothing.
Pelosi claimed that President Trump used a “provocative and disproportionate” force in the drone strike that took out Soleimani.
However, when former President Obama turned Lybia into a dumpster fire Pelosi was singing a different tune. A video has recently been released that is now haunting Pelosi over what she said after former President Obama took action against Lybia.
A reporter asked Pelosi, “Madame leader, you’re saying that the president did not need authorization, initially, and still does not need any authorization from Congress to go in Libya.”
Pelosi responded, “Yes,” and then walked away.
FLASHBACK: In 2011, Nancy Pelosi confirms she thinks Barack Obama “did not need authorization” to use force in Libya.
This opinion has not aged well for Pelosi.
