For such a ‘master legislator’ there’s an awful lot she doesn’t seem to really know.
These last couple of days, Nancy Pelosi has been breaking down the Latin roots of words while talking down to Trump and the rest of us.
She’s playing the role of grade-school teacher, interrupting herself in mid-sentence so that she can explain the meaning of a word her students may not know. Exculpatory.
We know the words, Pelosi. That’s what Schiff left out of his summary of the transcripts that were favorable to Trump’s explanation of the Ukraine scenario.
She was a guest on Face the Nation, where she made the following statement:
WATCH: Nancy Pelosi shreds the Constitution.
She says @realDonaldTrump has to demonstrate his innocence.
That’s patently un-American.
In America, there is a presumption of innocence but Democrats don’t care. #StopTheMadness pic.twitter.com/CO5piZgU4W

REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Well, there are many things that the President does that are completely out of the question that are not impeachable. And they’re about the election. But when it comes to violating the Constitution of the United States, as he undermines our national security, jeopardizes the integrity of our elections, dishonors his own oath of office, that’s about impeachment.
MARGARET BRENNAN: So the Constitution defines an impeachable offense as treason, bribery or high crimes and misdemeanors.
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Yes.
MARGARET BRENNAN: What do you think applies to this case?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: We are unfolding the facts. That’s what an inquiry is about.
MARGARET BRENNAN: You use the term bribery.
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Yeah, I was translating from the Latin. That – that was in the context of E Pluribus Unum. From many, one. And so I said from many, one. Quid pro quo, bribery. Now that’s what that is. Mm-Hm.
MARGARET BRENNAN: So, but do you expect that to be one of the articles –
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: I have no idea. Well, there is not even a decision made to impeach the President.
MARGARET BRENNAN: Mm-Hm.
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: This is a finding of fact, unfolding of the truth, and then a decision will be made, and that is a decision that goes beyond me.
MARGARET BRENNAN: Well, you point out factually, right, that vote has not taken place to proceed necessarily with impeachment. But do you think you’ll go through all of this and not vote to impeach the President?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: That remains – the facts, if the President has information that demonstrates his innocence in all of this, which we haven’t seen. His transcript of a phone call is tucked away in a highly sensitive, compartmentalized intelligence server so we can’t see that. If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpa, blame, then we look forward to seeing it.

She has assumed guilt, and is now scrambling for ways to prove it, literally using focus groups (which explains the Latin lesson) rather than evidence to determine the case they are making against him.
News flash, you old bat. Americans — even the ones you hate — are presumed to be innocent. It’s on the accuser to prove that the accused has done what you said he has done. (Whatever it is that you’re accusing him of today.)
But she ‘doesn’t know whether there will be an impeachment.
Sure, Nancy… and Michael Moore is a Calvin Klein model.
