She won’t be able to get out of this one.
During a recent interview, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lied saying that she never called federal law enforcement “stormtroopers,” by stating that what she said was that they “acted like stormtroopers.”
Attorney General William Barr was questioned in Congress recently, and Pelosi was asked about the statement Barr gave about her stormtrooper comment.
Barr was asked, “And the stormtrooper comments by the Speaker of House, and we know that that is a direct reference to the paramilitary wing of the Nazi Party… don’t you think it encourages the violence that we’re seeing and encourages the participation against the police?”
His response was, “I think that’s possible and I think it’s irresponsible to call these federal law enforcement officers stormtroopers.”
Pelosi’s response to the clip with Barr was, “Well, actually, I said they acted like stormtroopers.”

Tweets of her actual words have come up, and it looks like she was lying about what she said.
First Amendment speech should never be met with one-sided violence from federal agents acting as Trump’s secret police, especially when unidentified. This is disgraceful behavior we would expect from a banana republic — not the government of the United States.

Pelosi has been caught lying once again. Her calling officers stormtroopers also relates to a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party called Brownshirts.
