Nancy Pelosi: Trump’s Impeachment Trial Is About ‘Protection of the Constitution’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters Thursday the upcoming impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump is about the “protection of the constitution and the preservation of our republic.”

The 80-year-old California lawmaker made the remarks while speaking to reporters during Thursday’s press conference, explaining that Democrats will “insist upon the integrity and fairness of the proceedings” while recognizing the role that the Senate plays.

“No one is above the law. Not even a President of the United States,” she said, maintaining Trump must be “tried and convicted to ensure that no future president will ever think it’s ok to incite insurrection” and “to stop the ascertainment of who the next president of the United States will be” with inflammatory rhetoric.
