Just The News: Former Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a tweet flagged that stated that former President Donald Trump would have to prove his innocence in court.
“The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law,” Pelosi wrote on Twitter. “No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence. Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.”
The tweet was flagged for more context. An advisory attached to her tweet, according to the Washington Times, stated “Ms. Pelosi mistakenly says that Trump can prove his innocence at trial. Law in the US assumes the innocence of a defendant and the prosecution must prove guilt for a conviction.”
A Manhattan grand jury voted to indict former President Donald Trump this week over his alleged role in a payment to Stormy Daniels in 2016, making him the first former president to face criminal charges.
According to Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington, the 45th president plans to face the charges and keep campaigning.
“He will fight this all the way, but he’s not going to stop his campaign,” Harrington told the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “He’s not going to stop running for the American people and getting his message out.”
Need any more proof of her Communist mind-set???
April Fools from China
Pig anuses. All that comes to mind. Eating deep fried octopus at the tavern involves the risk of eating pig anuses. They’re cheaper.
Nancy meant exactly what she said.
Kinda makes ya wonder how well Nancy would do if she was investigated and told she had to prove her innocence….
She’s a Democrat.
They have no idea what the Constitution say and care even less.
They only understand if you completely agree with them
The only other option is ‘brute force’.
“Former Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a tweet flagged that stated that former President Donald Trump would have to prove his innocence in court.”
That’s not how it works, ya fuckin’ idiot.
She’s not wrong in a post constitutional republic.
Her death will be celebrated. Maybe we should do her ‘BLM” dance?
Aircubed: in a post Constitutional Republic Trump will not be able to prove his innocence. Innocence of a crime is no excuse.
Unsaid, but heard loud and clear: President Trump will receive a show trial where he will be found guilty on all counts.

This fucking creature isn’t even qualified to shine the shoes of the Founding Fathers, but thinks herself superior.
It’s not the task of the defendant to prove innocence: it’s the task of the plaintiff to prove guilt. I can explain it to you, Nancy, but unfortunately I can’t understand it for you.
Sniffer Joe is not the only combination senile/stupid/evil politician in DC.
A defendant having to prove his/her innocence is, I believe, right out of the Bolshevik/USSR/Stalinist brand of “justice”. Either that or it’s from “1984”.
I doubt if it was a slip of the tongue…she really meant it.
She isn’t wrong. This country famously coerces people to plead down to lesser charges rather than face the risk of being “presumed innocent.”
Not the first time she and other top democrats said authoritarian stuff like that.
If you remember the garbage they spew during Trump’s first impeachment, where they insisted that he had no rights since that was not a court, and before that they said if he had done nothing then he has nothing to fear from referring to Mueller and his band of angry democrat procedures losers, who were not investigating crimes that happened, but looking for a crime.
Show me the man, I’ll show you the crime.
