Nancy Pelosi Calls Republicans ‘Despicable’ in Fundraising Email (Video)

Nancy Pelosi sent out a misleading campaign email claiming that the “despicable” Republicans were “ramming through a vote” on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi attacked Republicans calling them “despicable” in a misleading fundraising email for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), House Democrats’ campaign arm.

Pelosi claimed she was “shaking with anger” and asked for donations “to defeat every last despicable Republican” in an email sent out under her name Friday afternoon from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Pelosi told supporters that Republicans were “ramming through a vote” on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh “in a matter of minutes,” which was misleading.

Under Senate Republicans’ best-case scenario, a confirmation vote for Kavanaugh would not have come until the weekend. As it was, the vote was delayed for at least a week to allow the FBI to investigate claims against the nominee that have so far been unproven.

“I need you to rush in $1 to defeat every last despicable Republican,” Pelosi said in the email. “I will personally quadruple-match it.”

Pelosi said Republicans were not interested in fairness.

“They don’t care about everything we’ve learned the past week,” Pelosi said of Republicans. “All they care about is falling in line behind Trump.”

The Daily Caller reports:

Even before Flake’s delay, the floor vote wasn’t scheduled to take place until Saturday. In no way was Kavanaugh “a matter of minutes” away from being confirmed to the Supreme Court when the DCCC sent the email.

The DCCC on Sept. 21 sent out a similarly misleading that falsely claimed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell resumed the Kavanaugh hearings without looking into the assault allegation and that Kavanaugh was “hours” away from confirmation.

The DCCC in July sent out an email under Pelosi’s name falsely claiming to need 100,000 signatures in order to “block” Russian President Vladimir Putin from visiting the United States at President Donald Trump’s invitation.

Democratic supporters who signed the “petition” were immediately redirected to a donation page.
