Johnson: Nancy Pelosi Committed a Crime by Ripping up Trump’s Sotu Speech

 U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04) today released a point-by-point legal analysis outlining why he believes Speaker Nancy Pelosi committed a felony by tearing up President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday.

“Much has been said over the last 24 hours about Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s antics during President Donald J. Trump’s delivery of his State of the Union address Tuesday night,” said Johnson. “Her dramatic facial expressions and eyerolling were enough to violate the rules of decorum and the traditions of civility in the House, but when she ripped up the written document on live television, she crossed a different line.”
