Nancy Pelosi is one of the most ruthless lawmakers on Capitol Hill, and one of the most reviled.
She even has enemies within her own party.
But she’s been there for decades, so she knows the system inside and out, which makes her the No. 1 poster child for term limits.
In any event, being a Democrat, she is going to milk the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill for all its worth, which is evident by the fact that she established a ‘select committee’ to look into it.
It’s a sham, of course, and isn’t legitimate in any way — except for one purpose: To keep her party from suffering a bloodbath in the 2022 midterms.
She is going to use the panel to tar and feather as many Republicans as possible, which is typical of course, of her style of politics.
But there’s more here, and constitutional experts are sounding the alarm: Pelosi’s tactics, via her committee, are going to run roughshod over the Constitution in the process of the ‘investigation,’ which will include violating the rights of members of Congress.
And the problem with that is, once a ceiling is shattered, there is no rebuilding it.

An expert on the Constitution is warning that Democrats in Congress are attempting to “weaponize” the Jan. 6 events at the U.S. Capitol in order to advance their political agenda.
Jonathan Turley, the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University, wrote online about the dispute after it was reported that Democrats are preparing a “tsunami” of court demands for information from “hundreds of targets.”
The committee now is demanding information about “hundreds of targets [to] include not only GOP members of Congress but demands for secrecy from these companies on the identity of targets,” Turley explained.
“Just two months ago, the Democrats denounced such secret orders by the Justice Department as a threat to our civil liberties,” he pointed out.
“It is not clear that Congress has such enforcement authority for secret subpoenas. What's more, the Democratic House Judiciary Chairman denounced such secrecy demands just last month, saying ‘they deny American citizens, companies, and institutions their basic day in court and, instead, they gather their evidence entirely in secret,'” he said.
In short, Turley sees Democrats throwing all norms and processes out the window because they are certain they’ll be able to get away with it since the Biden regime’s ‘Justice’ Department isn’t going to stop them.
These are tough times for our Constitution and our republic.
If Pelosi gets away with this, there won’t be any stopping Democrats from trampling the rest of our rights.
Opting out is going to be the only recourse they will leave for us.
