House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) expressed her fears that the U.S. is currently facing a “Constitutional crisis” alongside House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Thursday.

“We’ve talked for a long time about approaching a Constitutional crisis. We are now in it,” Nadler stressed to reporters on Wednesday, following the panel vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt.

“Now is the time of testing whether we can keep a republic, or whether this republic is destined to change into a different, more tyrannical form of government,” he added, emphasizing that “we must resist this.”

Watch the video below:

Asked by reporters on her stance, Pelosi agreed that the country is facing a “Constitution-based” crisis under President Donald Trump.

“Yes, I do agree with Chairman Nadler,” she replied, defending her view “because the administration has decided that they’re not going to honor their oath of office.”

“This is very methodical, it’s very Constitution-based, it’s very law-based, it’s very factually based,” she said of Barr’s ruling of contempt. “It’s not about pressure, it’s about patriotism,” Pelosi affirmed, taking partisanship out of the equation.

Pelosi then discussed the timeline may be influenced by more “contempt of Congress issues.”

“In terms of timing, when we’re ready, we’ll come to the floor,” Pelosi explained. “And we’ll just see, because there might be some other contempt of Congress issues that we want to deal with at the same time.”

“He [Nadler] wants to do it as soon as possible, and so do we,” she then added.

Watch the video below:

Pelosi also reiterated her Wednesday comments that Trump is “every day” essentially performing an act of “self-impeachment.”

“As I said yesterday, the president is almost self-impeaching because he is, every day, demonstrating more obstruction of justice, and disrespect for Congress’ legitimate role to subpoena,” Pelosi said.

“We won’t go any faster than the facts take us, or any slower than the facts take us,” the speaker went on to say, during her weekly press conference.

The only ‘crisis’ here is that the Democrats’ years of selling out the American People and basically doing whatever they want with no consequences are coming to an end. It’s finally time to pay the Barr tab, and they know it. As they grow more and more desperate, look for even more outlandish behavior and ‘false flags’. At this point, NOTHING can stop what is coming for them..Deep State, your days are numbered.

Tyranny? Nadler wants to be a tyrant but I don’t deem him smart enough. Of course, what do I know? Stranger things have happened, such as Piglosi getting re-elected over and over.

“Constitutional crisis” is another go-to phrase the Socialists use to distract their low-IQ, low information base from the truth. They tried “Collusion with Russia”; “Obstruction of Justice” and both were blown up by the Mueller report. Then they tried “Trump’s taxes” which are none of their business as politicians and not as IRS employees. They have deliberately overlooked Barry’s, Hillary’s and the DNC’s paid collusion with Russia so HRC could become president. Failure #2, HRC. Not sorry

The ONLY Constitutional crisis we are in is the same one we face EVERY time when spineless, low IQ myna birds gain control of the House of Representatives. So, technically, the dims are correct, but they have no idea why.

As all can see, certain people dropped by and clicked on the down vote. Wonder why they didn’t try to explain the Constitutional crisis we are in?

Want to see a dim squirm and stammer out some senseless syllables, ask them to explain just WHAT “Constitutional crisis” we are facing.

” ‘It’s not about pressure, it’s about patriotism,’ Pelosi affirmed, taking partisanship out of the equation. Explain to me Louie, just HOW has partisanship been taken out of this equation?

How is it a constitutional crisis when AG Barr is upholding federal law?
