House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi promised to “avenge” former President Barack Obama in a bizarre fundraising email sent out on Monday afternoon.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign sent out a letter under Pelosi’s name that claimed she is going to make Republicans pay for confirming President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Pelosi claimed that Republican ad-buys on behalf of Trump’s nominee will “eviscerate our chance to make Republicans pay for the Supreme Court seat they STOLE from President Obama.”
“But I’m determined to avenge President Obama if it’s the last thing I do,” she claimed, before asking supporters to click on a link to donate.
The House of Representatives doesn’t play a role in confirming Supreme Court nominees, which the Constitution leaves to the Senate.
The DCCC has previously faced scrutiny for blatantly misleading supporters to entice donations. (RELATED: House Democrats Lie About Mueller Investigation In Fundraising Emails)
The committee falsely told supporters in May that if they signed a petition then Trump would be forced to sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller.
