(ConservativeStar.com) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared on the January 10 episode of “60 Minutes” for a wide-ranging interview with veteran reporter Lesley Stahl. They spoke of the riots on Capitol Hill, her conflict with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) — aka AOC — and then Stahl did something almost unthinkable in what passes for journalism today and asked her a real question and followed it through.

The interviewer then set her up when she said the speaker is not known as a person who compromises. To which she responded, “No, I am. I compromise…” Going on to explain how that is just a Republican myth and nothing else. This is when Stahl sprang the trap and asked about the COVID-19 relief package that was held up for eight months.

Pelosi tried to deflect responsibility, saying, “but that was their [Republicans] obstruction,” which led to a back and forth between the two, with Stahl refusing to back down from her position. Eventually, the California Liberal admitted what every Conservative has known for months, it was indeed her party holding America hostage.
