House Minority Whip Steve Scalise says the reason House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is moving to invoke the 25th amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office comes from her lack of confidence in former Vice President and Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s ability to govern and her inability to negotiate a bipartisan COVID-19 relief bill for the American people, he revealed on “Fox & Friends” Friday morning.
“This shows you just how misplaced Speaker Pelosi’s priorities are,” Scalise said. “We should be in Washington helping families that are struggling and recovering, small businesses that would love another round of Paycheck Protection Program funding, where there’s massive bipartisan support for Rep. Chabot’s bill to give another round of PPP funding. That could be passed tomorrow, but she’s not bringing us back for that.”
Pelosi signaled Thursday that she plans to move forward with establishing a Commission on Presidential Capacity. She and Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) announced the move in a press release. The move would likely die in the Republican-controlled Senate, which Scalise said she knows would happen.
“She has been fixated for the last four years with overturning the results of the last election. Here she is again, on the heels of Vice President Pence winning handily a debate against Kamala Harris. She’s now trying to overturn the results of next month’s election. She’s wanted to remove President Trump from office because she doesn’t agree with the people’s choice from the last election,” Scalise explained.
He added, “Look, they started with the Russia hoax, they did impeachment. This is what you spent and wasted her speakership on. She should be fighting for families and small businesses, not trying to overturn the results of the election because she knows how well President Trump’s doing. And, by the way, what a signal that is to Joe Biden that she’s spending her time trying to remove President Trump from office because clearly, she mustn’t have confidence in Joe Biden’s abilities.”

DOJ charges eleven pro-life protesters ‘aided and abetted by one another’
Eleven pro-life protesters were charged with violating federal law by the Department of Justice Wednesday for blocking abortion clinics. The individuals, “aided and abetted by one another, used force and physical obstruction to injure, intimidate, and interfere with employees of the clinic and a patient who was seeking reproductive health services” said the DOJ.
According to a summary of the indictment, seven of the demonstrators were charged with conspiracy against rights secured by the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, which prohibits obstructing the entrance to an abortion facility. The remaining four were charged with violating the legislation.
Pro-life activist AJ Hurley told Live Action News the FBI raided the home of Chester Gallagher, the organizer of the protest and one of the accused conspirators, on Tuesday with guns drawn. He said Gallagher’s neighbors told him Gallagher was out of state when the FBI showed up and entered his home.
National Review reports that Hurley also told Live Action News that the FBI reportedly recently called a few of the charged individuals to tell them they had arrest warrants and that they must turn themselves in. If convicted, those charged with conspiracy could face up to eleven years in prison and fines up to $250,000, the DOJ confirmed.
National Review writes:
Gallagher allegedly advertised a series of pro-life events on social media for March 2021 in the Nashville area. The indictment claims he and other coordinators recruited participants to travel to the city and erect a blockade, which Gallagher allegedly called a “rescue,” at Carafem Health Center Clinic in Mount Juliet, Tenn., to prevent pregnant women from pursuing abortions.
A livestream of the stand-in shows activists chanting and singing prayer up the stairs to and along the hallway outside the abortion clinic, located in an office complex. Police officers eventually appeared in the video urging them to take their protest outside to the sidewalk.
“This is not allowed guys. Asking you to leave the property or I will call the police,” a security guard can be heard saying. The indictment alleges that the group prevented a patient and an employee from entering the facility. After they refused to leave the premises, the activists were reportedly escorted away to jail by police on misdemeanor trespassing charges. One pro-life activist wroteon March 6, 2021, on Facebook the claim that one “rescuer” was held on $1,000 bail, six, including Gallagher, on $1,500 bail, and two on $2,500 bail.
