It hasn’t been a good few months for Nancy Pelosi…
Back in November, her close friend Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to her sworn enemy Donald Trump. Then, Pelosi herself almost lost her precious position as Democratic minority leader when a rival Democrat from Ohio ran against her claiming that she was out of touch.
Now, things have gotten even worse for Pelosi after she spoke out to slam President-Elect Donald Trump for refuting the CIA’s claim that Russia hacked the election. Unfortunately for Pelosi, this turned out to be a huge mistake.
It all started when Trump criticized the intelligence community, saying, “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again.’”
Pelosi responded by going on MSNBC and saying, “He returned with, ‘well, people told us that Saddam Hussein had—Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.’ It did not. The intelligence community never said that. It was a massive misrepresentation to the American people. But there’s nothing in the intelligence to support the threat that Bush-Cheney was presenting.”
However, it has since been revealed that this could not be further from the truth. In reality, the first unclassified finding of the 2002 National Intelligence Estimate was: “We judge that Iraq has continued its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs in defiance of UN resolutions and restrictions. Baghdad has chemical and biological weapons as well as missiles with ranges in excess of UN restrictions; if left unchecked, it probably will have a nuclear weapon during this decade.”
Nice try, Nancy, but you just failed MISERABLY!
