Nancy Pelosi takes heat over resurfaced tweet casting doubt on Trump’s 2016 win: Report

According to Fox News, House Democrats were joined by 10 of their Republican counterparts in voting to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday on a single charge that he “incited” the violence that transpired at the U.S. Capitol last week, in part by casting doubt over the last several months over the integrity of the 2020 presidential election.

But if Democrats think questioning the results of America’s elections is a crime, then one of their own has just been caught red-handed.

According to the Washington Examiner, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing criticism for a resurfaced tweet that shows her raising doubts about the results of the 2016 White House race.

“Our election was hijacked”

It was on May 16, 2017, that the speaker tweeted, “Our election was hijacked. There is no question. Congress has a duty to #ProtectOurDemocracy & #FollowTheFacts.”

The speaker’s claims were wholly unsubstantiated, and that was later proven by a years-long investigation, led by then-special counsel Robert Mueller, that found no evidence of collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign team and Russia. But unlike Trump’s tweets about the 2020 race, Twitter hasn’t put a notice on Pelosi’s message to warn that her claims may be false.

According to the Examiner, Twitter declined to explain to its reporters “why a warning label was not attached to Pelosi’s tweet challenging a certified election result.”

A “stolen” election?

Of course, Pelosi isn’t the only high-profile Democrat to cast doubt on the 2016 presidential race; failed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has repeatedly argued that the White House was “stolen” from her.

During an interview with CBS News in September 2019, Clinton insisted that her former opponent “knows he’s an illegitimate president,” according to The Washington Post.

“I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories — he knows that — there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did,” she added.

Four months earlier, the former secretary of State had questioned the election’s validity while promoting a book.

“You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” she said in May 2019, according to USA Today. Sound familiar?

  1. The DemoRats can play anyway they want and never be called out by anyone. Hillary should be in prison right now but instead she is out there mouthing off knowing that she is above the law.

    1. I agree with you I am so upset about the double standard of our country. How do they get by with it Is it the money and china

      1. They get away with it because they are the swamp creatures that have the criminal deep state protect them and help cover up all the criminal acts they have committed.

  2. This woman and I use the word loosely has done more damage to America than any other person in history, For the last 5 or six years, she has done nothing for anyone in America except sowing hate for the opposite party to further her own goals. How and why do we let people like her destroy everything we believe in.

    1. You are wrong, Obama is the one who has inflicted the most damage on our country by corrupting every Federal department. Clinton is second in line. I predict that Corrupt Biden and Ho Harris will be even worse, but they are mere puppets for Obama and Soros. We are in for a rough ride for the next four years.

      1. Republicans will never get in office again they have everything rigged there way now that’s they stole this election and got away with it.

    2. Because the people of California keep reelecting her and the dumb democrats in the Housse keep doing the same and reelect her to the Speaker position.

  4. If we do not have term limits, our country is doomed by rotten democrats. Come on,lets get the oldsters out of our congress and get some new blood in for 2 terms, like our president. This would give us, of the people, by the people and for the people. Congress was never to be a home for the crooked. TERM LIMITS IS A MUST.

  5. Are we going to continue another 4 years of their projecting what they are doing on everyone else? We have listened to it now for over 20 plus year and more in the last 12. Everything that came out of Obama and Pelosi’s mouths are the things they do well so guess that is how they know.


    1. Amen. Democracy died. The only winners are the media. In a time when NO ONE is watching commercials or live tv what a god send to the networks to have all this divide and hate and protest and riots. The media is your enemy. None of them lost work during this pandemic or had to shelter in place. Same as the politicians. Ratings are soaring. They could care less about you. The ability to brainwash you has never been greater and you all just kee0 making it easier. If you think any of them dont want this you are lying to yourselves. Unless the evidence is shown to the people and they can make an educated determination for themselves wether Trump lied to them or the election was in fact rigged (as the majority of americans believe) then america will never be the same.

  7. with jo and ho you will not even be able to defend yourself from being murdered, in fact they will probably have trump supporter murder squads – think i will shoot anyway and consider it a good deed.

  9. If Nancy trult believes Trump was an illegitimate president, then why is she going to all of the effort to impeach him?

  10. All of Pelosi’s actions for the past 4 yrs. are acts of TREASON against the president of the United States of America.

  11. Obama was an illegitimate president. He wasn’t born in hawaii he was born in kenya. Trump is still the president. You Dems are frauds and should all be in prison for the election.

  12. All posts are right on target! The demonrats can say and do anything they please, no repercussions! If President Trump or his supporters say ONE WORD, we are pilloried on the spike of hatred! WHEN are THEY going to be held accountable? Piglosi, screwmer, shifty shiff, nadless Nadler and the rest of the sewer roaches need to be out of our government, barred from holding ANY office, that goes for Obama, killary, Kerry and all the rest! They are the domestic terrorists in our country! When do we get to see justice done for all THEIR sedition, treason, lying, cheating etc? As long as they are free, our country is bieng attacked!

  13. Why do you think the Democrats want Trump out of there so bad because another four years he would have all of them arrested convicted and possibly to the death they ran scared so that’s why we got stuck with the first impeachment then along came the coronavirus which they put among us American people and they knew it how do you think they have a vaccine so quick takes years for a vaccine to be developed tested and make sure everything is correct but no they knew that because they already had the vaccine that is why they did all of what they have done because they are Satan and they should be the one to get infected with some kind of so infectious disease that they die from it and they deserve it and I don’t like talking like that but something needs to be done they have been trying to control the American people for a very long time and now they’re going to be able to it Americans need to take a stand we only have a few days left after January 20th we lose everything!!!
