In a victory for proponents of conservatism, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will finally give up the gavel on Tuesday at the kickoff of the 118th Congress. Via The Gateway Pundit, Pelosi has become the first woman to lose the speakership in the House twice in one lifetime after spearheading years of bickering with Republicans.
During her time as Speaker, Pelosi was perhaps one of the most divisive political figures in the history of the U.S., making no secret of her distaste for President Donald Trump.
President Donald Trump pointed out in a recent statement on Truth Social that Pelosi had overseen two failed impeachment attempts against him in the House and had further failed to follow his recommendation in January 2021 to send thousands of soldiers to the U.S. Capitol for protection ahead of the so-called “insurrection.”
“This is the year that Nancy Pelosi became the first woman to lose the House of Representatives twice in a lifetime, and lose two highly partisan and ill conceived Impeachment Hoax’s to a President who created the best Economy, with no Inflation, Energy Independence, and the safest Southern Border in the history of our Country,” Trump wrote.
As reported by RSBN, Speaker Pelosi and her husband, Paul, have also been accused of insider trading, with the Pelosis growing rich to the tune of millions of alleged dollars while Mrs. Pelosi has held her position as Speaker of the House.
On Tuesday, the House of Representatives will vote to elect a new Speaker of the House in the fresh Republican-controlled majority. However, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., is not expected to get enough votes on the first tally, according to a report from Fox News. Per the outlet, the House vote breakdown is likely to be 222 to 212, but it is yet unclear how many votes McCarthy will need to win until elected representatives hit the floor and announce the surname of their preferred Speaker candidate.
