 Pelosi Accuses Republicans of ‘Trying to Get Away with the Murder of George Floyd’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday accused Republicans of trying to get way with the murder of George Floyd, a black man whose videotaped death in police custody in Minneapolis last month set off a violent protest movement nationwide. Pelosi made the remark, “they were trying to get away with murder, actually–the murder of George Floyd”, in an interview with CBS News Radio’s Steve Futterman while commenting on the Republican police reform bill largely authored by black Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.

YouTube took down the posting by the Republican National Committee of Pelosi’s comments Tuesday night but restored the video around 11 p.m. EDT.

The entire interview can be heard on Soundcloud:

Nancy Pelosi says with their police reform proposals, Senate Republicans are “trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd.”

Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill accused Republicans.

@SpeakerPelosi said “Republicans” — if there’s any one Republican she’s talking about it’s the self-proclaimed Grim Reaper @senatemajldr.  Didn’t hear any GOP outrage when his #3 in leadership @SenJohnBarrasso said Ds put their bill in a “chokehold.” https://t.co/GnNZ6fzJz5

Only a chokehold BAN would have saved George Floyd. We need the #JusticeInPolicing Act.
