When questioned about two IRS whistleblowers testifying before Congress this past week, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gave an interview that gave the impression that she was muddled on a number of issues.
During an interview with presenter Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union” this week, Pelosi made the comments.
“This past week, two IRS whistleblowers, professional investigators, provided testimony under oath that the Justice Dept. slow-walked its investigation against President Biden’s son Hunter as well as ignored the recommendations to file more severe felony charges,” added Bash. “Are you certain that politics didn’t enter into this at all?”
In her response, Pelosi confused the hearing with the IRS whistleblowers with the hearing with Democrat presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy, whom she referred to as “Joe Kennedy.”
“Since you brought up the hearing,” Pelosi replied, “Well, that was a — what a ludicrous clown performance, again, on the side of the Republicans. This was the goal you expressed. How did they act? Bring in Joe Kennedy about censorship and how he is being censored while speaking to the entire world at a congressional hearing and displaying images that had nothing to do with the main points.”
When questioned once more if she thought the Department of Justice was conducting its investigation fairly, Pelosi stated that she respected whistleblowers but once more referred to the hearing as a “clown show” because of the images that Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene had brought in and since RKF Jr. was not present.

“No, I am not — I am not confident of — with regard to what the whistleblower stated,” Pelosi responded. “The U.S. attorney worked for Trump. They feel like they do. It wasn’t what the other people present thought.”
