The neocons want to punish Pelosi for tearing up King Trump's speech?  Wow!  After Trump and his cronies basically tore up the US Constitution?

You are as overly dramatic as Pelosi and Schiff. Progressives take lessons in bad acting and professional butt hurt?

It was a pathetic gesture by the Republicans. They knew it meant nothing.

 

Impeachment was a pathetic gesture by the infantile Demoncraps. Everyone knew it meant nothing, and now libretards here are even bragging that they knew for months that Trump* would be exonerated. Yet they persisted in their pathetic gesture.

 

 

 

*not guilty

Image result for Kay Granger pelosi

 

 

This resolution isn't worth the paper its written on. Why don't you just physically slap Nancy's wrist, it would be as effective.

 

And I have a resolution for you right here, Kay. Get to work.

 

 

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/gop-introduces-resolution-to-condemn-pelosi-for-ripping-up-trumps-state-of-the-union-speech/ar-BBZHuiX?ocid=spartanntp

(Full article at above link)

 

Just hours after their colleagues in the Senate voted to acquit President Trump on the two articles of impeachment brought against him, Republican lawmakers in the House introduced a resolution to condemn House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for ripping up a copy of Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night.

The privileged resolution, which was introduced Wednesday by Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger, blasted Pelosi’s public shredding of the text of the address as “a breach of decorum” and said it brought “discredit on the House.”

After sparring with Republicans on the floor, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said he will move to table, or set aside the resolution, but since the measure is privileged the House must consider the resolution between now and Friday.

Pelosi’s action on Tuesday evening has stolen much of the spotlight from Trump’s State of the Union address.

As Trump finished his address -- and with television cameras focused on him, Pelosi and Vice President Mike Pence -- the speaker ripped in two the paper the speech was printed on. As Trump stepped down from the pulpit, she ripped papers again. Then a third time. And a fourth. 

Pelosi told reporters as she left the ripping was not planned and added “I felt very liberated last night."

Pelosi’s action led to widespread Republican condemnation that spilled over onto the House floor when Granger introduced the privileged resolution.

On Wednesday evening, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Hoyer had a feisty exchange in which the Republican leader called the copy of Trump’s address a "document of the House," arguing that it should not have been destroyed.

It was just a copy. There is no infraction here.

I suppose that you think that anyone that has a copy of Trump's speech is going to keep it forever to keep from breaking the law.

Trump is a dirtbag and his speech is full of lies.

once again your ignorance is astounding.

it was not just a copy, it was the official copy, as the national archives ruled in 1986 regarding the state of the union speech

 

 when President Trump handed her that signed copy of his speech there were no other copies available she had not seen it ahead of time, and it was personally signed by him.

 

and she mutilated or destroyed it in violation of federal law, and should be prosecuted

No. She didn't. So let me put this to rest for the perpetual butt hurt.

 

Code 2017 states, “Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

 

What Kirk, Higbie and Trump, Jr. are overlooking, Kalmbacher points out, is the “filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States” part.

 

“Trump handed Pelosi a copy of the speech,” Kalmbacher explains. “He didn’t file this copy with any official — clerk or otherwise — whose job it is to make sure such documents are collected, recorded and physically and legally protected. The president gave Pelosi a copy of his address as a memento of sorts.

 

This action wasn’t an official deposit. It was an act of theater.”

 

The piece of paper that Pelosi tore up, according to Kalmbacher, “is not covered by the statute at all…. Nothing official happened here one way or another, and certainly, no laws were broken by the speaker.”

 

Laurence Tribe, a Harvard Law School professor, has lambasted Pelosi’s detractors for being so clueless that they don’t even understand how Code 2017 works.

 

“Not even Bill Barr would fall for that ludicrous misapplication of the federal law criminalizing mutilation of government records,” Tribe asserted. “The copy was the speaker’s own. It wasn’t a government record to begin with, and her action was purely symbolic expression well within the protection of both the speech and debate clause and the First Amendment.”

 

Want some cheese to go with that whine clown?
