Stefanik’s ‘Radical Authoritarian’ statement against Pelosi
Following Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s probe into alleged hush money payments made prior to the 2016 presidential election, a grand jury on Thursday indicted the former president. “No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence,” ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement on Thursday. “Hopefully, the former president will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.”
In a statement released on Friday, Stefanik Calls Pelosi, claiming that “guilty until proven innocent” is not how American justice operates. Despite stepping down as speaker, extreme authoritarian Nancy Pelosi is still regarded as a key figure in the House Democrat Caucus, according to as Stefanik Calls Pelosi.
“Her comments on the unprecedented and dishonest indictment of former President Trump must be condemned by all. They completely go against the American values of equal under the law and the presumption of until a case is proved guilty, are profoundly offensive, and are un-American.

Investigations into payments of $130,000 to adult film star Stormy Daniels and $150,000 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal have been conducted by Bragg.
