Top Republicans hit back at Pelosi for ‘hypercharged language,’ calling GOP ‘enemies of the state’
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., on Tuesday blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for calling Republicans “domestic enemies of the state.”
“They want that chaos, they want the confusion because they know the president of the United States is going to win on Election Day, but, they want to keep counting just like they did in New Jersey four weeks after their primary election,” Jordan told “Fox & Friends.”
“Imagine if it takes six weeks to figure out who won one congressional primary. Now they’re talking about live ballots being mailed out to everyone and then counting ballots,” Jordan said.
Jordan said Americans want a “fair and secure election.”
“The speaker saying the things she does does not help things, only hurts things,” Jordan said.
Pelosi escalated her attacks toward President Trump and GOP lawmakers Monday, describing them as “domestic enemies” over their opposition to universal mail-in voting.
During an interview on “MSNBC Live” with anchor Ayman Mohyeldin, Pelosi slammed Trump’s repeated rhetoric opposing mail-in voting and accused him of “scaring” potential voters and welcoming Russian interference in the upcoming election.
