“I’m telling you right now, this is gonna be the misdemeanor from hell for Merrick Garland, Nancy Pelosi, and Joe Biden.

And we’re gonna go on the offense.
We’re tired of playing defense, we’re gonna go on the offense on this, and stand by.
By the way, you should understand that Nancy Pelosi is taking on Donald Trump and Steve Bannon.
She ought to ask Hillary Clinton how that turned out for them.
We’re going on the offense.”
