Former House Speaker, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), praised the indictments brought against former President Trump, describing them as “beautiful and intricate” and said they have a solid chance of resulting in conviction.
Pelosi made the comments in a comprehensive interview with New York Magazine that was published on Monday, also discussing the prospect of Trump securing a second term in the White House.
“The indictments against the president are exquisite,” Pelosi said.
“They’re beautiful and intricate, and they probably have a better chance of conviction than anything that I would come up with,” she continued
The interview then switched its focus to the 2024 presidential election and Trump’s re-election campaign, in which Pelosi spoke in dire terms.
“Don’t even think of that,” she said of Trump winning the White House again.
“Don’t think of the world being on fire. It cannot happen, or we will not be the United States of America,” Pelosi continued.
“If he were to be president, it would be a criminal enterprise in the White House,” she added.
At the moment, Trump is facing three indictments for charges relating to hush money payments to a porn star, mishandling classified documents, and attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Special Counsel Jack Smith handed down the last of those last week. Trump also faces another potential indictment in Georgia for his efforts to overturn the state’s election results.
Trump’s legal team has responded to Smith’s indictment by arguing that his efforts in 2020 were protected by the First Amendment.
