This kind of broad, inflammatory rhetoric is like throwing a match into the tinderbox,” lei disse.

What Speaker Pelosi is talking about is a very serious thing. If there is evidence to back what she is sayingis true, this is a legal issue for law enforcement.

What Nancy Pelosi is talking about is a crime of terroristic threateningand if true should be reported to law enforcement. Members of Congress are not above the law,” lei disse.

This is why it’s so important for Nancy Pelosiif these accusations are baselessshe needs to apologizenot so much to her colleagues but to the American people who right now, more than ever, need leadership coming from the speaker of the House, who represents all members of Congress and the American people to bring us together.
