Skip to comments.Nancy Pelosi Blasts GOP Claim She Set ‘Precedent’ To Kick Dems Off Committees: ‘We Said If You’re A Danger, You’re A Danger!’

Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi objected when CNN anchor Chris Wallace asked if she’d “opened the door” for Republicans to kick Democratic members of Congress Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and Ilhan Omar off of their committees......
WALLACE: Didn’t you open the door to this?
PELOSI: No, we set a precedent which I hope they will follow. If they have members, as they did, who threatened the security of our members on the committee or a danger to our members, threatening them, then they will go off the committee. So if they have that accusation about any of our members, let’s hear what they have to say. It was clear that their members were a threat to our members. So this is about maintaining safety for our members. The fact that they want to take these people off the committee is philosophical. So, they have the votes they could take somebody off, but that’s for philosophical reasons. That’s not the precedent that we set. We said if you’re a danger, you’re a danger. You can’t be on the committee.
WALLACE: They would say Ilhan Omar has made a number of anti-semitic comments, they’d say Eric Swalwell had a relationship of some sort with an alleged Chinese spy. Those are legitimate reasons to kick them off their commitees.
PELOSI: Well, that’s not — there’s not legitimate reasons. If they want to do that, then that’s the precedent they are setting, but don’t say it’s a precedent that we set. We said these people are a danger to the other members of the committee and they’re threatening manner and the rest, and that’s why they’re going off the committee, because they’re a danger.

All Democrats are a danger, thus we will keep them all off the committees!
A concise translation of Pelosi’s definition of “threatening manner” is “strongly disagreed with us”.
Of course, Wallace didn’t ask her in what specific way they were a “danger” to the sweet little dems. He just let her ramble this total nonesense.
I couldn’t get the clip to download.
So did Chris “low ratings” Wallace follow up, or did he let her skate?
Nancy Pelosi is the example of the perfect democrat...She is a lying anti-American POS....
Unfortunately only she is the judge of who is a danger. And when they stage a fake "insurrection" and then reps defend trespassers she labels them a "threat". So this is what you call word salad.
Karma is a witch. So is pecker puss Pelosi
Elections have consequences, Nancy.
“If they have members, as they did, who threatened the security of our members on the committee or a danger to our members, threatening them, then they will go off the committee.”
She threw everyone off of the Jan. 6th committee except to willing stooges? This makes no sense.
The woman will lie about anything.
What is she still doing in Congress? Didn't her ambassadorship to Italy come thru yet?
So they are a danger if they are a member of a committee but not a danger if they are just a member of congress.
Lying sack Pelosi
Safety? Is that physical safety? That’s a delusion. It’s more likely that these snowflakes can’t handle hearing alternative perspectives. They need their safe spaces. I’m so tired of irrational fears. Over half of Americans are living in a self imposed prison of fear. People are afraid to speak their minds. People are afraid of offending and being offended. People still wear face diapers. They don’t work by the way. People are afraid of Russia when it’s proven their military is crap. People are afraid to create, build businesses, and live their dreams. Fear seems to be everywhere.
Wake up. Our so-called betters are using fear to control you and for them to expand their power. The next time you feel a twinge of fear, the do some research and a little critical thinking. Get off the emotional bus. The next big wave of fear is for the debt limit. It does not need to be feared. It doesn’t need to be increased. Congress can cut spending and government programs. They have only forgotten how too. There is nothing to fear.
The biggest surprise to me is that Chris Wallace was saying these things to Queen Nancy.
All Democrats are dangerous to the Republic and to the people.
Oh my a lot of things Nancy did are now coming back to them on the you know what ,LOL
Similar to what Harry Reid did over in the Senate.
“PELOSI: Well, that’s not — there’s not legitimate reasons. If they want to do that, then that’s the precedent they are setting, but don’t say it’s a precedent that we set. We said these people are a danger to the other members of the committee and they’re threatening manner and the rest, and that’s why they’re going off the committee, because they’re a danger.”
Word salad. Hard to say if it’s stupidity, senility, or some combination of both.
