After Decades in the House, Pelosi Still Has Not Read the Constitution, Critics Take Her to School and Eats Her Lunch

Pelosi says President Trump must prove his innocence. Wrong again.

Pelosi said:

“The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law. 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.”

Unfortunately or rather I should say fortunately she needs to tell Pat Sajak that she wants to buy a clue. In the United States, a person who is accused of a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty. An accused person is not required to prove their innocence.

A lot of people have weighed in on the comments coming from Congress’s most frequent inside trader. She really isn’t the person who should lecture on morals. Especially when you are talking about the last and future president. I wish we had one now and not the Lobbyist for China in Chief.

Cornell Law School also explains:

The presumption of innocence is not guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. However, through statutes and court decisions—such as the U.S. Supreme Court case of Taylor v. Kentucky—it has been recognized as one of the most basic requirements of a fair trial.

“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.”

Pelosi’s tweet went viral garnering over 10 million hits. The Backlash was brutal:

  • “This exactly the opposite of how this works. Nobody is required to ‘prove innocence’ in our criminal justice system. See the 5th, 6th, 8th, and 14th Amendments, or any episode of ‘Law and Order,'” Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-N.D.), a lawyer, said.
  • “The right to ‘prove innocence’? This is America, not Stalinist Russia,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), a lawyer, responded.
  • “Wrong. So obviously wrong. Most Middle Schoolers know this—at least they used to, when civics and the Constitution was respected in schools. You’re innocent until proven guilty,” Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer, responded.
  • “This is exactly backward. Under our justice system, no one has to prove innocence. The state must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. You’d hope a former speaker would know the basics of law and be precise, especially in such an unprecedented and seemingly flimsy prosecution,” former Rep. Justin Amash, a lawyer, said.
  • “Uh it’s ‘innocent until proven guilty’ not opportunity to ‘prove innocence,'” Ben Shapiro, a lawyer, said.
  • “Nancy Pelosi is dead wrong here. Does she really have no clue that the burden is not on a defendant to prove their innocence at trial?” former Rep. Lee Zeldin, a lawyer, responded.
  • “Stalinist Pelosi. Prove innocent? It’s innocent until proven guilty, moron. Or at least used to be,” BlazeTV host Mark Levin, a lawyer, responded.

Twitter’s “Community Notes” function later added a fact check note on Pelosi’s tweet, saying “readers added context they thought people might want to know.”

Ms. Pelosi mistakenly says that Trump can prove his innocence at trial,” the fact check reads. “Law in the US assumes the innocence of a defendant and the prosecution must prove guilt for a conviction.”

Twitter also added a link to Cornell Law School’s website definition of “presumption of innocence.”

A presumption of innocence means that any defendant in a criminal trial is assumed to be innocent until they have been proven guilty,” the Cornell Law School says on its website. “As such, a prosecutor is required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the person committed the crime if that person is to be convicted.”

    • billi says:

      You misunderstand. She doesn’t give a hoot what the constitution says. No one takes her on and forces her to comply with the Constitution. She should be in Jail for an attempted Coup –among other crimes.

  3. ox says:

    This is the kind of judicial system the Queen of Mean, wishes America had. It’s not up to Trump to prove his innocence, it’s up to the little fat man from NY to prove Trump is guilty. Guilty of what? Hush payments are not uncommon. The Congress has been doing that for years. The Congress has a slush found financed by the taxpayers, every time a Congressman person found themselves in trouble, thy Congress was dipping into this fund and paying out. Congress persons that found themselves in trouble, never saw the light of day inside a court room. If this were happening to Lying Corrupt Quid Pro KING Joe, Pelosi would be singing a different tune.

    Shes Zero Now
    No longer House Speaker

    • boone1 says:

      No she’s not Speaker of the house the democrat communist party voted in a black communist.

  5. Sandgrandmother says:

    Why isn’t it law that anyone before the confirmation of becoming a Judge, Senator, Congressman/woman, or President and all personnel hired by these entities, no matter their level, have to take a test just on the Constitution and have to pass at 100%? Then, if they miss, they are given three chances with one week to prepare and retake the test. Then periodically throughout each year while in office, they are given the same test, and if missed, then they are fired.
    Gee, it makes them better students in school and college if they desire to become a; politician in life as a career. It may even become a ripple effect because then schools and colleges might higher qualified educators instead of the low talented hired now.

    Even though Twitter is owned by Elon Musk, it appears that they are standing up for the former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. In my estimation, that woman never should have been Speaker after what she did to President Trumps State of the Union address. She should also be tried for insider trading along with her husband. It is truly amazing to me that any member of Congress that earns the salary that they do is able to become a multimillionaire. Can someone please explain to me how that happens?

  7. Pelosi was always too busy drinking to even read the laws she past. She needs to be sent home because we are done with her mouth.

  8. Adonis says:

    No amount of time heals someone’s very low IQ. It is what it is, and now American public knows it. She was a moron and still is the same moron .

  9. Americafirst says:

    You are all going to e shocked when you really find out that Nancy Pelosi was executed at 10:07 EST on 12/27/22. There are body doubles and clones in her place. Executed for all 5 counts in a Military Judicial system. She was a horrible traitor.

  10. jean says:

    Piglosi is raised by the mafia, she follows the example set by her criminal mentors!

  11. Adonis says:

    How do you spell illiterate moron? Here it is: PELOSI.

  12. Dr Katz says:

    Pathetic Pelosi hasn’t read the Constitution due to her time drinking vodka, and her time eating very spendy ice cream. Nutty Nancy has not helped our citizens at all, just helps out her rich, partners in crime. Glad she’s nowhere near a chance to be President anymore with her demotion.

  13. CharlieSeattle says:

    Piglosi is ig’nate, a liar and a traitor!

  14. Ell jay says:

    Enough already that he/she/him was executed is bull! If it “really” happened, then why are body-double allowed to carry on as if nothing happened?
    Please, these people are still alive and creating hell on earth for our country.

  15. Wyatt Earp says:

    Pelosi you are NEXT! Just remember your own words! The people know you have violation more laws than Trump! But got away ( for now) because of all the corrupt in the justice system. But don’t worry we are coming for you and the other! Just as you said you will need to prove you are innocent! But CAN’T!
