Statements issued by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) against former President Donald Trump signal that they are plotting to steal the 2024 election, according to author Jeffrey Lord.

To illustrate, Lord cites Pelosi’s remarks to host Lesley Stahl, who commented that Trump “could run for president again,” according to the Feb. 1 article. 

Pelosi agreed with Stahl, saying, “And that’s one of the motivations that people have to advocate for impeachment,” or the impeachment trial that Democrats are pushing for against Trump even after he leaves office, which if convicted could prevent him from running for president in 2024.

This intention of Pelosi’s is also highlighted by the renowned former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, in one of his tweets in January. 

“The will of the American people has to be subordinate to the will of Pelosi. Trump has to be impeached to stop him from running again. Pelosi fears the American people might pick him if they were allowed to. What a formula for expressing Washington’s contempt for the people,” Gingrich said.

In turn Schumer also emphasized that the goal of impeachment against Trump is to prevent him from running in the 2024 elections.

“After what he has done, the consequences of which we were all witness to, Donald Trump should not be eligible to run for office ever again,” Schumer said referring to the unrest on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6, for which Trump is unjustifiably blamed.

Evidence shows that Trump called for calm and urged attendees to go home, and the demonstration was proven to have been infiltrated by members of the violent Marxist groups Black Lives Matter (BLM) and antifa. 

Lord reiterates that with Pelosi and Schumer statements and the impeachment by Democrats they only intend to gain power for themselves.

“Pelosi and Schumer are pushing the stark, deliberate lie that the former president, Hawley, and Senator Ted Cruz incited the Capitol riot,” Lord said.

He added, “And they are using that lie in an attempt to steal the 2024 election by denying the American people their right to vote for the candidate of their choice. Which is to say, denying Trump his constitutional right to run again if he so chooses.”
