Nancy Pelosi Caught In A Major Lie

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is clearly still bitter over President Trump being acquitted of his impeachment charges. So bitter, in fact, that she refuses to acknowledge that he actually was acquitted.

During an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Saturday, Pelosi insisted that the president was not acquitted because the Senate did not call for additional witnesses or documents.

Amanpour asked, "What about, though, the fact that the president seems liberated, and this is about democratic politics so I'm not asking you to criticize here, but he was acquitted, his poll ratings are high—"

Pelosi quickly interrupted her and said,  "You can't have an acquittal unless you have a trial, and you can't have a trial unless you have witnesses and documents."

She continued, "So he can say he's acquitted, and the headlines can say 'acquitted,' but he's impeached forever, branded with that, and not vindicated. And even the senators were saying, 'Yes, it wasn't right,' but they didn't have the courage to act upon that."
