(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the lead Democrat orchestrating the J6 Inquisition, was caught on tape during the Capitol uprising threatening to “punch him out” if she encountered President Donald Trump.
In audio recording obtained by CNN, an unhinged Pelosi boasted that she hoped to run across Trump and didn’t care if she went to jail for physically assaulting the president, which Todd Starnes noted is actually a federal offense.
“Just in case you are wondering, it is indeed a federal crime to threaten a president,” Starnes wrote.
“Threatening the president of the United States is a federal felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making “any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict great bodily harm upon the president of the United States.”
Pelosi certainly made her assaulting intentions clear on Jan. 6, 2021, after her chief of staff informed that the Secret Service was keeping Trump from coming to the Capitol because of safety concerns.
“They told him they don’t have the resources to protect him here,” the aide said on the recording. “So at the moment, he is not coming. But that could change.”
“I hope he comes,” Pelosi said. “I want to punch him out.”
“Oh wow, I would pay to see that,” the aide said.
“I’ve been waiting for this,” Pelosi bragged. “For trespassing on the Capitol grounds. I’m gonna punch him out, and I’m gonna go to jail, and I’m gonna be happy.”
“Oh my god, how did that guy get up there?”

While leftists have repeatedly cheered largely-passive protesters for receiving harsh prison sentences for as little as “gesticulating” at police officers, they lauded Pelosi as a hero.
“I’m gonna punch him out and I’m gonna go to jail and I’m gonna be happy.”
It is the greatest sound bite of the last seven years. It is what we have been dreaming to say and what we have been waiting to hear.
Thank you, Nancy Pelosi!

“Perfect. Absolutely perfect,” gushed one self-identifying “award-winning investigative journalist.”
Biden Inaugural editorial video director Chris Strider praised Pelosi as “Nancy ‘GOAT'”.
