Nancy Pelosi Is Already Attacking the the 2020 Election’s Legitimacy , “Nancy Pelosi just stated that ‘it is dangerous to let ,

What Pelosi has done is even more cynical. She’s arguing that if Democrats fail in their efforts to impeach Trump—and, I assume, remove him from office—then the very legitimacy of the 2020 election will be in question before any votes are cast.
