Pelosi Inverts American Justice System Claiming Trump Has Right to “Prove His Innocence”

 April 1, 2023

In a statement Thursday, as she was reacting to news that a Manhattan grand jury had voted to indict former President Donald Trump, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared to invert the U.S. justice system. In her attempt to sound benevolent, 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.” Adding that “The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law,” …. “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.”

-Former House Speaker (D-CA) Nancy Pelosi

After the New York Times first reported Thursday, that Trump was indicted in connection with a years-old case, by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Pelosi formally chimed in with the Democratic leadership but with a very twisted perspective. Pelosi’s statement seemingly deprives Trump of the presumption of innocence, literally contradicting our legal system and making a mockery of the U.S. Constitution.

Democrat leaders, not quite as bold as Pelosi, appeared more subdued in their reactions. Reportedly, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), as an example, said Trump “will be able to avail himself of the legal system and a jury, not politics, to determine his fate.”

The historic news of a former president’s indictment on charges that remain unclear prompted reactions from top Republicans at all levels of Government. Several Republican leaders, such as House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), conveyed outrage, slamming Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for what they said was a weaponization of the legal system, against political enemies. This use of his office, in seeking this indictment against Trump is purely political – the facts, of the case demonstrate it.

Bragg has literally opened up a political Pandora’s’ box.  Who’s to say that any President past or present can’t be treated accordingly, now that this warmongering Soros – bought, Democratic DA, has opened the lid?

Hopefully the American people have seen enough, no matter their politics, to clearly vote these radical anti-constitutionalists out of their offices and replace them with constitutionally sound men and women who will respect America’s founding principles. The survival of America now depends on it.

"The glory of justice and the majesty of law are created not just by the Constitution - nor by the courts - nor by the officers of the law - nor by the lawyers - but by the men and women who constitute our society - who are the protectors of the law as they are themselves protected by the law."
