Skip to comments.Pelosi says Republicans 'trying to get away with murder' of George Floyd
Posted on 06/23/2020 11:05:03 PM PDT by knighthawk
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asserted in an interview Tuesday that Republicans are "trying to get away with murder, actually -- the murder of George Floyd" -- marking a dramatic escalation in rhetoric as the Democrat-controlled House prepares to pass its police reform package.
Pelosi, D-Calif., speaking to CBS News Radio correspondent Steve Futterman, said Senate Republicans' reform proposals in the wake of Floyd's in-custody death in Minneapolis were "unsalvageable" and won't make "any difference."
Specifically, Pelosi said Democrats want a total ban on chokeholds, which Attorney General William Barr has also suggested he would support. But, Pelosi said, some Republicans are waffling on the issue.

What constitutional authority does the fedgov have to ban choke holds that are employed in a non discriminatory manner? I know everyone wants to virtue signal, but this is ridiculous.
Are they speaking of federal funding only???
Lately she’s been soiling herself everything she speaks.
It doesn’t even make sense.
How many babies did you murder today Nancy?
Nancy Pelosi needs to put on a police uniform and patrol her own district. We need to watch this as a live stream.
It is becoming evermore obvious that “Nanny” Pelosi is mentally, morally, emotionally & in every other way UNFIT to be speaker or indeed to be in any public office.
She, IF she had any sense of common decency, would apologize for her bad conduct & RESIGN from Congress, forthwith.
I agree with Nancy that there was a vast right wing conspiracy involving the Minnesota Republican police chief, the Republican Mayor, the Republican Attorney General, the Republican Governor, both Republican Senators, Ihlan Omar..... oh wait, never mind.
LOL, almost everyone is in the tank for prosecuting the
officer for murder, so just exactly how is anyone other
than the officer trying to get a way with murder here?
I suspect he doesn’t feel that he was trying to kill the
man, so I’m not quite sure anyone is actually trying to
get away with premeditated murder.
Every one hold. Just hold. Wait patiently for the Lord. Go vote. Let them do what they're going to do, but get the vote in FIRST.
She really knows how to spread oil on troubled waters. And then light the oil.
That's okay, Fancy Nancy, Democrats have gotten away with murder for decades.
60 million times.
F’ you Nancy, you lying F’ing idiot.
And I would LOVE to say that to her face uncensored.
Nancy couldnt care less about George Floyd...she never met him nor would she have never had him home for tea and crumpets or ice cream...
If Nanci doesn’t singlehandedly incarcerate all violent humans who need to be subdued, eliminating the choke hold will result in our cities being inundated with violent drugged-up loonies, or result in other methods being used. The reason LAPD had no tools but PR-24’s left to deal with Rodney King is that politicians had banned use of the “choke hold” in just such circumstances.
Can we now arrest her for insisting violence and insurrection?
To Nazi Pelousi, trials are no longer necessary.
I wouldn’t be very surprised if we are told that Nancy Pelousy herself gave the order to have George Floyd killed to get this all started. She amazes me that at her age she tries so hard to dive to the very bottom of the cesspool of corruption she inhabits. Time will pass, and so will the memory of her, but for now, she is rivaling Hillary for the title of “Horrid Evil Harridan of the Century”, something I thought would be impossible.
PELOSI the babykilling cop killer?
insiting not insisting
