House Speaker Nancy Pelosi abruptly shut down a reporter Thursday after being asked about GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham’s threat to call in FBI agents to testify about who planned the Capitol riot last month if Democrats call witnesses in former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
“Your question is a waste of time,” Pelosi told the reporter during her weekly news briefing on Capitol Hill.
Another reporter quickly shouted a question to her as she walked away about whether House Democrats were setting a precedent by aiming to strip Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) of her committee assignments over her embrace of QAnon.
“If any of our members threatened the safety of other members, we’d be the first ones to take them off of committee. That’s it. Thank you,” Pelosi said.
