House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D- CA) is no slouch. She came from a political family. When she was nine, she held the Bible for her father as he was sworn in as mayor of Baltimore, Maryland. The Speaker managed the Intelligence Committee for years before handing it off to the capable hands of Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA).
Speaker Pelosi tweeted that Congress would “protect America’s elections and defend our Constitution:”
‘Congress must not turn away from its duty to protect America’s elections and defend our constitution, just as generations before us have done.’

She waited to announce the impeachment inquiry until even the representatives in red districts were on board. Then, Pelosi moved with a precision swiftness to save America from Donald Trump’s “lawless actions.” She called them a threat to “national security:”
‘@realDonaldTrump’s lawless actions are a direct threat to America’s national security. #TruthExposed
She told The New Yorker that she doubted Trump even knew of his responsibilities to the country:
‘“I saw, as a young person, that the Republicans didn’t come around until the tapes. It wasn’t like they were saying, ‘This behavior is not acceptable to us.’ The tapes were dispositive of the issue. There was no vote to impeach, because it was so clear that he had to go. But even Nixon knew of his responsibility to the country. I’m not sure this person does.”’
