Thursday, reporter James Rosen attended Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s press conference where he asked the Speaker one difficult question.
“I wonder if you could explain to the American people why the legal rights of the whistle-blower should prevail in this political setting over those of President Trump who should ordinarily enjoy a right to confront his accuser?” Rosen rightfully asked.
Pelosi lost it, calling Rosen “Mr. Republican Talking Points.”
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. When you talk about the whistleblower you are coming into my wheelhouse. I have more experience in intelligence than anybody in the Congress, anybody who has ever served. 25 years on the committee as top democrat ex officio, as leader and speaker,” Pelosi bizarrely ranted.Rosen later responded to the Speaker’s jab, tweeting that he thought the question “was fair and respectful. Her reply descended to personal insult without addressing the substance, and was accordingly beneath her office. I later asked @GOPLeader [Rep. Kevin McCarthy] tough questions. It’s called journalism.”Pelosi’s outbreak comes at no surprise considering the Democrat’s impeachment agenda is falling apart in front of their
Pelosi also refused to elaborate on what if any charges House Democrats would bring against Trump, notably declining to say if the president’s Twitter attack on former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch during her testimony Friday amounted to witness intimidation.
“I haven’t had a lot of time to pay attention to the president’s tweets and the legal implications of them. I just think that was totally wrong and inappropriate and typical of the president,” Pelosi said on CBS’ “Face the Nation“ in an interview that aired Sunday.
Pelosi and other senior Democrats have long declined to publicly commit to an end date to their impeachment investigation into whether Trump violated his oath of office by pressuring Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a top political rival.
