Nancy Pelosi is no stranger to complaints as could be seen by the circus impeachment trial of which she was a mastermind and principle figure. Her latest issue with President Trump comes in the form of dissatisfaction that the President failed to notify her of the drone strike which killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. Rather than celebrate the success of the drone strike against the military figure who is accused of orchestrating the deaths of hundreds of Americans during his tenure in Iran’s military, Nancy Pelosi must find any shadow to cast over the President’s resolute action.
According to Pelosi, President Donald Trump did not brief her or Congress adequately on the strike which led to Solemani’s death. The House Speaker issued the following statement through her office:
“The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.
The full Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the Administration, including the significant escalation of the deployment of additional troops to the region.”
It is unclear if Pelosi had any solution to offer herself to the escalation of conflict between the United States and Iran.
Nancy Pelosi, “Swamp Mistress” of the Year
The New York Post, bodly labeled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a “Swamp mistress” on it’s cover. The tabloid posted news of President Donald Trump’s impeachment with a picture of Nancy Pelosi and the following caption, “It’s your funeral.”
The cover was accompanied by an column written by Michael Goodwin in which he states, “I would have counted her more honest if she had pledged her allegiance to a Democratic donkey.”
The Post columnist states that Trumps impeachment is a “stomach-turning charade”, that “damages America.”
