Republicans Call on Barr to Criminally Investigate Pelosi for Tearing Up Trump’s Speech

Two Republican lawmakers are calling on Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate whether Nancy Pelosi committed a criminal act when she tore up President Trump’s State of the Union speech.

According to Fox News:

Two House GOP leaders have officially called on Attorney General William Barr to determine whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke federal law when she ripped up President Trump’s State of the Union speech earlier this year.

Republican Policy Committee Chairman Gary Palmer, R-Ala., and Republican Study Committee Chairman Mike Johnson, R-La., wrote a letter to Barr on Tuesday asking he deliver a definitive answer on whether “Pelosi committed a criminal act by destroying an official copy of the State of the Union speech delivered to her” by Trump.

“Nancy Pelosi’s famous tantrum on the House floor was more than disgraceful; she violated her responsibility to preserve official documents delivered to the House of Representatives,” Palmer said in a statement. “We ask the Attorney General to review this scandalous outburst, not simply because it offended every American, but because it set a precedent for radical politicians to hijack state events for partisan performance art and possibly break the law with, thus far, no consequence.”

The GOP lawmakers believe Pelosi could have violated 18 U.S.C. § 2071 which deals with the mutilation of official federal records and sets a criminal penalty of destroying documents of up to three years in prison.

A fact-checker looked at the claim and found that because it was a printout of the speech and not an official record, Pelosi could do what she pleased with the speech.

How does the fact checker know it wasn’t an official copy? I read it was and I’ve read it wasn’t. It says in the complaint that it was an “official” copy. Will be interesting to find out.

These liberal “fact checkers” are hard on checking, but light on facts. If they were earnest in their fact checking duties, they would have condemned the complete democratic national convention. That whole circus was made of nothing but lies and misinformation.

Even if it was a copy, it was still an official document and she had no right to destroy it. She, like so many other liberal politicians, is above the law and answers to no one. She will get her hair done when she wants, and will eat her $15 per pint ice cream, and not answer to us peasants!

the fact checker, is a liar. to destroy any federal document, you, need the permission from the director of national archives even if it is a copy of a copy, since it is hard evidence you received it.

and has to be entered into an official log, listing what is to be destroyed, why it is being destroyed, and a summary of what is in it. and even the method of destruction must be followed for hard copies are burned in a special furnace.

and there must be three guards present along with the carrier, to witness the destruction of hard copies to sign off for it during transport to destruction. no congressperson, or presidential administrator get any say in the destruction of not for public dissemination, confidential, secret, top secret or above top secret documents.

no one person, can take it upon themselves to destroy any federal document. even documents, that were allowed to be shredded must be burned in a certified furnace.

so pelosi violated more than just one law, when she ripped the document.

And after the criminal investigation she needs to be investigated as to her mental sanity . She clearly is not playing with a full deck and anyone that mentally unbalanced should be locked up for their own good .

I felt that tearing up the speech of a sitting president violated everything a Speaker of the
House represents. Her partisan views are so apparent and alarming to the American people she represents. I feel she should have been impeached for that tantrun.

Pelosi tearing up the speech of a President shows just how much disrespect she has for this country. We voted for this President and we are Pelosi’s boss. She doesn’t seem to get that her duty is to the people. We chose Trump and it is her job to show respect to him and to us.

I was very excited when Barr got installed as AG.
But, he’s been there over a year and what has he done?
No endictments, no supeonos, no IG report yet.
I’m a true Trumper but I’m getting really disappointed
in the lack of any action.
And, two months ahead of the elections, ain’t nothing
going to happen except the GOP might wonder “what
happened”when it’s all over.

So true and while they were on her private server. She should either be tried for having classified/secret documents on a private server or for the destruction of 30.000 government documents if they say the server was official she. Either way she goes to prison. She had no authority to destroy them even if they were about Chelsea’s wedding. Once on a government server they become Government property. That. Case should I be reopened in light of the Biased FBI Investigation based on a Dossier paid for by Clinton.

Seems like there should be a lot more to nail old queenie Nanc with after a little digging. Just investigate her like they did Trump for that something just like the dim wits did to Trump. Open the investigation with any little charge that allows the digging for dirt to start. She is far from not guilty of something. In fact, it is a certainty the woman and Fienstein and Shifty all deserve an investigation for “something”. Name the investigation like the dim wits did, real vague!

It’s the act and sentiment of tearing up the speech that matters here, not what paper her copy was printed on. This was clear and deliberate disrespect of the President, the SOUA and the Country. She needs to be held accountable!

She would NEVER have torn up a copy of any speech by a black president…. or ANY black politician for that matter.
But she’s smart enough to know you can get away with that.

Tearing up a speech is the least offensive thing she has done, and it reflects very badly on her character. But what about all the absolute lies she has told about Trump to Congress, the media, and the public. That’s her worst offense.

I don’t care about the speech as much as I care about how she conducts herself as Speaker. What about the false allegations she proposes, what about the lies she tells, what about the comments verging on treason? What about Pelosi’s need for power at any cost? What about her continued insults of the President and his Administration? She’s an insult to my country, and as far as I’m concerned…a criminal.
