Madam Speaker Issues Bitter Retort to Reporter Dubbed ‘Mr. Republican Talking Points’

Pelosi’s sharp retort is simply further evidence of the Democratic party coming unhinged as their impeachment fiasco spirals into farcical hyperbole.

Yesterday’s first round of public impeachment hearings didn’t quite go as the Democrats had expected.

Instead of bolstering their case against the President, the “resistance”-minded members of the House Intelligence Committee found themselves being outgunned and outmaneuvered by their Republican colleagues, who tore into diplomats Bill Taylor and George Kent over their distance from the alleged improprieties of the President.  Neither Kent nor Taylor had any firsthand knowledge of wrongdoing, and neither man had ever even had any interaction with the Commander in Chief.

All in all, the Democrats walked away deflated, forcing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to come out swinging on Thursday in order to bolster their waning confidence.

Instead, Pelosi delivered a scathing insult to an unbiased reporter that was seen by many as unbecoming a politician of her stature and experience.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Sinclair Broadcast Group reporter James Rosen of spouting GOP talking points after he asked a question about the whistleblower at the center of the Trump impeachment inquiry during her weekly press briefing on Thursday.

Rosen pointed out that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has said he would do anything necessary to protect the whistleblower’s identity during the ongoing impeachment hearings.

“I wonder if you could explain to the American people, why the legal rights of the whistleblower should prevail in this political setting over those of President Trump, who should ordinarily enjoy a right to confront his accuser?” Rosen asked.

Then came the insult.

“Well, let me just say this, I will say to you, Mr. Republican talking points, what I said to the President of the United States,” Pelosi said while gesturing to Rosen. “When you talk about the whistleblower, you’re coming into my wheelhouse. I have more experience in intelligence than anybody in the Congress.”

Pelosi’s sharp retort is simply further evidence of the Democratic party coming unhinged as their impeachment fiasco spirals into farcical hyperbole.
