Nancy Pelosi tells Lesley Stahl that Trump ‘has to pay a price’ for inciting insurrection

In a wide-ranging “60 Minutes” interview, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke to correspondent Lesley Stahl about President Donald Trump, the rioting at the U.S. Capitol and the possibility of taking Trump out of office.Pelosi, who described Trump as a “deranged, unhinged, dangerous president,” said “he has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him.”In terms of consequences, she said nothing, including the 25th Amendment, is “off the table.””I like the 25th Amendment because it gets rid of him. He’s out of office,” she said. “But there is strong support in the Congress for impeaching the president a second time. This president is guilty of inciting insurrection. He has to pay a price for that.”Not only did Pelosi’s comments gain attention, so did Stahl’s questioning, which some viewers criticized as tough.”So unimpressed with this interview. Ms Stahl was tougher on speaker Pelosi than Trump,” user @YWeelden tweeted.”@LesleyRStahl I know your job is asking the hard questions, but all due respect, you propagated Republican propaganda about @SpeakerPelosi, & you were rude. She’s an icon who deserves respect, and is the only politician to get us through these hellish 4 years,” user @sfor4th tweeted.”@LesleyRStahl needs to retire. That was the worst interview I have ever seen her do. The questions were designed to be combative rather than informative,” user @suncode7 tweeted.Others found the interview to be powerful, especially when Pelosi retraced the events at the Capitol with Stahl.”I’m stunned after watching this #60Minutes interview with @SpeakerPelosi thinking about the fact that her young staff knew to kill the lights, barricade the door, and hide under the table after growing up doing those drills in their classrooms,” user @Miss_Mausie tweeted.
