Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted armed Republican members of Congress as ‘the enemy within’ the House of Representatives on Thursday as lawmakers asked for additional funds for security amid increasing threats to their safety.
‘We will probably need a supplemental for more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives,’ she conceded at her press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday.
Asked to specific who she meant by the enemy within, Pelosi forcefully responded: ‘It means that we have members of Congress who want to bring guns onto the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress.’
So because Pelosi has an irrational fear of people with guns she wants more money so that she can surround herself with more people with guns? And I don’t buy for a second that any Republican threatened a Democrat with a gun.
