The speaker of the House has doubled down on her statement that Republicans are “trying to get away with the murder of George Floyd.” On Wednesday, Nancy Pelosi stated she will absolutely, positively not apologize for the claim.
This comes as Congress continues to butt heads over police reform legislation.
Pelosi dismissed the Senate’s attempts to compromise and claimed the media has been giving the GOP too much credit for their bill.
“I think you, frankly, in the press have given far too much credit for a bill that does nothing,” she said. “…Our bill does something, theirs does nothing.”
