Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) praised the allegations against former President Trump, calling them “beautiful and complicated” and believed they have a good chance to convict the former president.
In a detailed conversation with New York Magazine published Monday, Pelosi discussed the implications that Trump could secure another term.
Pelosi commented: “The allegations against the president are exquisite. They’re beautiful and complex, and probably have a better chance of conviction than anything I could come up with.”
Speaking about the possibility of Trump’s re-election in 2024, he expressed strong reservations. “Don’t even think about it,” Pelosi remarked about Trump’s potential return to the White House. “Don’t think about the world on fire. It can’t happen, or we won’t be the United States of America.”
He also said, “If he were president, it would be a criminal enterprise in the White House.”
The longstanding feud between Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump has intensified over the past week.

Trump currently faces three indictments related to payments to an adult film star, his storage of classified documents and his attempts to challenge the results of the 2020 election.
Pelosi also said in the New York Magazine interview that “I learned on January 6 that I had committed a crime.”
He did not explain why the House of Representatives did not improve security despite repeated warnings days in advance that extremists planned to disrupt Electoral College proceedings. Thus, Trump could not have “incited” these extremists to riot at the Capitol in his speech. In fact, he told protesters on January 6 to “make your voice heard in a peaceful and patriotic way.”
The most recent indictment was issued by Special Counsel Jack Smith a week ago regarding Jan. 6. Another potential charge awaits Trump in Georgia over his challenges to the state’s election results.
In response to Smith’s accusation, Trump’s defense argues that his 2020 actions were within the bounds of the First Amendment. John Lauro, Trump’s lawyer, clarified on Fox News on Sunday that Trump simply asked officials to confirm the election results rather than impose such directives.
