Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally admitted today what Republicans have alleged for months about why she held up an agreement between House Democrats and Senate Republicans on a coronavirus relief package:
She wanted to wait until after the election when presumably Joe Biden would be declared the winner of the presidential race.
The stunning admission was made during her weekly press briefing with reporters this morning where questions were asked about the status of the Wuhan virus relief bill including on how soon she felt both sides could come to an agreement on the particulars.
Prior to the election, Pelosi and other Democratic leaders in the House balked at the Senate’s smaller bill and demanded much more. Now she says she’s open to a scaled-down bill in the interests of getting something passed soon (bolded emphasis added):
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a press conference Friday that she’d be willing to support a smaller coronavirus relief package, citing President-elect Joe Biden’s win and COVID-19 vaccine progress.
The package is smaller than the relief bill Democrats have previously pushed for — leading Pelosi to address why she supports the legislation.
Pelosi said that Biden’s win and the development of coronavirus vaccines is “a total game-changer” during her weekly press conference.
“It’s what we had on our bills. It’s for a shorter period of time but that’s OK now because we have a new president,” she said. “A president that recognizes that we need to depend on science to stop the virus.”
Watch Pelosi snap at the reporter who asked her why the sudden change on wanting to agree on a relief package:
Finally, Nancy Pelosi said today she would be willing to do a smaller covid-19 relief bill after months of refusing to budge on anything except for the liberal wishlist in the HEROES Acthttps://t.co/LP3xaFnKbn

In another contentious exchange between a reporter and Pelosi during the presser, the House Speaker admitted it was her decision to delay an agreement on the bill and that she was not ashamed of the decision:
Pelosi: "That was not a mistake; that was a decision that has taken us to a place where we can do the right things without should we say 'other considerations' in the legislation that we don't want … I'm very proud of where we are." Says she's proud of the work of her chairs

Prior to the election, President Trump made it a point often to note that Pelosi, Schumer, Biden, and the rest of the Democrats were using the virus and various relief packages to undermine his presidency and defeat him on Election Day. Reporters would in turn scoff at the claims, reacting in outrage at such a heinous accusation.
As it turns out, it was indeed a heinous accusation but one that was also true. Trump probably had no idea just how on the mark he actually was. Unfortunately, this illuminating concession from Pelosi will blow over in a few days (hours, probably) courtesy of the same media who relentlessly accused Trump for months of being ok with hundreds of thousands of Americans dying if it meant getting the economy on track.
How many Americans lost their jobs and homes because of what she did? How many starved, gave up hope, committed suicide? These are questions that will never get asked of her, because the reasons why they’d be asked would show the left’s true motivations for the shutdowns, the stall tactics, all of it right from the start:
To defeat Trump – literally by any cold-hearted means necessary.
