Nancy Pelosi was asked on Thursday to respond to claims that she is playing games on impeachment.
Her answer was bizarre and barely made any sense.
Here’s a partial transcript via ABC News:
Pelosi: Not sending impeachment articles to Senate until she sees details of trial process
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday stood by her position that the House will not send the Senate the just-passed articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump until she sees “the process that is set forth in the Senate” — how a trial would be structured.
When asked at her weekly news conference if there’s risk in Republicans saying she is playing games by holding the articles, Pelosi said, “We don’t know the arena that we’re in. Frankly, I don’t care what the Republicans say.”
“We would hope there would be a fair process just as I hope they would honor the Constitution,” Pelosi said of Republicans, adding that she’s said all she’s going to say on the matter until she knows more about what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will agree to.
“In any event, we are ready. When we see what they have, we’ll know who, and how many [impeachment managers], we’ll send over. And that’s all I have to say on this now,” Pelosi said.
See the video below. She sounds like she has no idea what she’s saying:

If Trump said something so incoherent CNN would have 7 panelists debating his mental health. https://t.co/4Ienquc5X9

That last tweet is spot on.
The media would use this against Trump for days.
