Nancy Pelosi freezes, repeatedly flubs lines during attack on Trump
Nancy Pelosi appears to have issues, but Democrats continue making her their
The House Minority Leader repeatedly misspoke during brief remarks with her
colleagues late Friday, and at one point even awkwardly froze up.
She criticized the "actions of the Trump administration as relation- related
to the rule of the law."
"The Trump administration and the Trump family have pa- eagerly ex- uh,

"Members of Congress take a sa- sacred oath," Pelosi struggled to say
"What do the Russians have politically, financially, uh, uh, or- and any-
personally on Donald Trump that he fawns over Putin, uh, questions
sanctions, uh-" she said, then froze.
"Uh- is- reckless when it comes to Article V," Pelosi finally said.

for their actions and one of the questions they will have- some of the
questions they will have to answer will be posed by our colleagues."
She went on to introduce her sidekick Maxine Waters, who called the Trump
family a "criminal enterprise."
