Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin: "I'm saying to the president and I'm saying to you, 'You've come into my wheelhouse now. I have 25 years of experience in intelligence.'"
Why it matters: That quote captures the speaker's mood and posture after a week in which her quiet patience on impeachment looked vindicated.
- "Pelosi has tried to frame [impeachment] through a historical, apolitical lens," the LA Times' Jennifer Haberkorn writes.
- "She is sprinkling her speech with quotes from Ben Franklin and Abraham Lincoln. And she has repeatedly cited her frequent prayers for the president, his family and their safety."
