Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has kept to shadows recently. But she wasn’t going to pass-up releasing this news.
And Nancy Pelosi made a sudden announcement about Donald Trump.
The media has been buzzing with stories about a possible indictment of former President Trump.
What seemed like rumors could turn out to be true, and Donald Trump may very well be arrested any day now.
Republicans and Democrats are getting out ahead of a possible arrest as quickly as possible.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., refused to speak on the likely indictment of former President Donald Trump in New York City on Monday night.
During a Wall Street Journal speaking event this year, the Democrat was asked whether Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump, involving alleged hush money paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels, was the “right vehicle for challenging” him – or whether it will boost his chances of winning the Republican nomination in 2024.
“I think that’s a matter for the courts,” Pelosi responded.
“The grand jury will vote and decide on the basis of evidence they have, as to whether there should be any follow-up to that information.”
“It’s not for any of us to say whether he should be indicted or not, it’s the basis of the law, and the facts, and that’s up to the court. So that’s all I’ll say about him,” she said.
Pelosi ended the answer with a jab at Trump, her former political nemesis that she refused to name: “I don’t like talking about him.”
That was a cautious response from the legislator who led two separate impeachment investigations of the former Republican commander in chief while she was House Speaker.
Last week, Trump tweeted on his Truth Social app that he anticipated to be indicted in Bragg’s investigation on Tuesday.
Although no indictment was released, reports indicate that a decision on potential charges could come as early as Wednesday afternoon.
According to Fox News Digital, he had not yet been aware of the impending indictment at the time.
Pelosi is not the only Trump opponent who has been cautious in responding to the explosive rumors.
When approached by Fox News Digital on Monday evening, two Republican senators who have been known to oppose Trump on several occasions declined to comment.
“I’m really not going to comment on this until we know what happens,” Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney stated.
When asked if an indictment should disqualify Trump from running for president, Sen. Mike Rounds, R-South Dakota, told Fox News Digital, “That’ll be up to the people that vote in each state because that’s where it’ll be determined, but for right now, there has been no indictment at this stage of the game.”
