Levin shreds Pelosi's bogus bribery accusation against President Trump

Thursday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took on an accusation from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., that President Donald Trump engaged in bribery with Ukrainian officials.

At a Thursday morning press briefing on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said that the House's impeachment probe had turned up evidence that Trump had committed bribery in his handling of Ukraine foreign aid. “The bribe is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement of a fake investigation into the elections," she said. "That’s bribery.”

"Let me explain something to Nancy Pelosi," Levin said. "The word 'bribery' in the Constitution is right there in Madison's notes [on the federal convention]. Their concern was that a foreign power might bribe a president with cash, with money, with titles, in order to buy his loyalty. It's nothing to do with what they're talking about in Ukraine and 2016; that's not what they meant by bribery."

"So she gets the word bribery wrong from a constitutional perspective, and she has no evidence," Levin concluded. "She's an idiot."
