Pelosi Claims Senate Republicans are Trying to ‘get away with murder’ of George Floyd

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) blasted Senate Republicans for introducing a police reform bill that does not meet her standards.

During an interview on CBS News Radio, Pelosi accused Senate Republicans of “trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd.”

Following the extreme statement, Pelosi refused to apologize for saying it.

Unsurprisingly, the statement was widely criticized by Republicans.

New York Republican Representative Lee Zeldin called Pelosi’s comment “disgusting.”

In contrast, Democrats circled the wagons to protect Pelosi.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did not criticize the House Speaker.

Schumer backed Pelosi’s comment saying, “what she said was fine with me.”

Republican South Carolina Senator Tim Scott hit back at Senate Democrats for blocking debate on his bipartisan police reform bill.

“The actual problem is not what is being offered. It is who is offering it. Took me a long time to figure out the most obvious thing in the room. It’s not they what,” Scott said.

Both Pelosi’s statement and Senate Democrats’ successful effort to block debating the Republican bill is outrageous.

Democrats don’t want to solve problems – they only want to exploit racial tensions for political advantage.
