Nancy Pelosi Falsely Claims Congress is the ‘Superior Branch’ of Government

WATCH: Pelosi says that Barr lied to Congress

What is there to say about Nancy Pelosi at this point.

Every time she opens her mouth she says something that doesn’t make sense and only helps Republicans.

Here’s the latest example.

From Fox News:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday declared that Congress is a “superior branch” of government, as the clash between congressional Democrats and the Trump administration over closely held documents intensifies.

During an interview with Robert Costa for Washington Post Live, Pelosi, D-Calif., was asked whether Congress is functioning as a coequal branch of government.

“I think we’re a superior branch, quite frankly,” Pelosi said. “We have the power to make the law and the president enforces the law. So we have a big role. We’re closest to the people and we have a big role to play.”

Despite Pelosi’s opinion, the U.S. Constitution, in its first three articles, defines three separate, but equal, branches of government: legislative, executive and judicial. The separation of powers also creates a system of checks and balances to ensure all three branches are coequal.

As small children in school we learned that each branch of the government holds equal power.

There are two possibilities here. Nancy Pelosi knows that and is lying or Nancy Pelosi doesn’t know that and never learned it.

Both are unacceptable if you’re the speaker of the House.
