House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just got caught up in a lie after she falsely suggested that she never called federal officers “stormtroopers”. This is definitely one lie she isn’t going to walk away from as her stormtrooper comment attracted criticism from top Republican lawmakers and even the Attorney General.
In an effort to deflect criticism over her stormtrooper comment, the House Speaker said the following on MSNBC – “I said they acted like stormtroopers,” Pelosi claimed without evidence. “And they did and my colleagues have said that as well.”

From The Daily Wire:
On July 17, Pelosi tweeted, “Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protesters and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti. These are not the actions of a democratic republic. @DHSgov ’s actions in Portland undermine its mission. Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.”
Pelosi added, “First Amendment speech should never be met with one-sided violence from federal agents acting as Trump’s secret police, especially when unidentified. This is disgraceful behavior we would expect from a banana republic — not the government of the United States.”
