(Tea Party 247) – A press conference was held on Wednesday featuring Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer where he was asked a question about the egregious comments made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in which she stated that Republicans are “trying to get away with murder, actually. The murder of George Floyd.”
The comment was in relation to the GOP police reform bill. Schumer stated that Pelosi’s gross statement was “fine with me.”
Birds of a feather, right?
These folks are absolutely disgusting.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Schumer was asked, “What’s your reaction, do you think it was appropriate for Speaker Pelosi to say that Republicans are quote, getting away with murder of George Floyd?”
Schumer cut in to respond, “Pelosi’s answered that question herself and whatever — what she said was fine with me.”

During a Tuesday interview with CBS News Radio, Pelosi accused Republicans of being responsible for Floyd’s death, just one day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set a date to vote on the GOP’s police reform legislation.
“The press has given them so much play for this unsalvageable piece of legislation and then say, ‘well, can’t you compromise with that?’ No, it’s because it is no and we are yes,” Pelosi said of GOP proposed police reform legislation.
“So when they admit that and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration, but so far they were trying to get away with murder, actually. The murder of George Floyd,” she added.
The House Speaker said Wednesday she will not apologize for her comments. “Absolutely, positively not,” she said.
Senate Democrats blocked the GOP police reform bill, which was led by Sen. Tim Scott, a black Republican senator from South Carolina, in a vote of 55-45. It needed a total of 60 votes in order to proceed. Part of the bill calls for data to be gathered concerning the use of force by police and the use of no-knock warrants — those are just a horrible idea to be honest — and also encourages local law enforcement agencies to get rid of chokeholds. This particular measure is connected to federal law enforcement grants. Those that don’t get rid of the holds, don’t get the grants.
Folks, this once again is about usurping power. If the left truly were concerned about police brutality, they’d be willing to take a look at solutions that protect the liberties of individuals citizens, enable the police to more effectively carry out their duties to keep us safe, and provide better training after examining pertinent data. Instead, they want a list of demands to be met or else.
There’s no doubt that if you look at the data already collected, we’re definitely having some issues with police using excessive force. However, that doesn’t mean the problem is racially motivated. We need more data to understand this problem, especially since it’s an issue that impacts everyone, regardless of color.
