Verified Twitter user Carl Higbie set Twitter on fire when he pointed to US code that shows Nancy Pelosi could be facing HUGE punishment for ripping up Trump’s State of the Union Address if it proves to be an official government document.
Check out his tweet below, which says Pelosi could be fined and even be DISQUALIFIED from holding any office of the United States if the document is deemed to be official:
FYI: @SpeakerPelosi destroyed an official government document.
18 US code 2071 states:
“Whoever, having the custody of destroys the same, shall be fined… shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”https://t.co/o5jzF4X43C pic.twitter.com/xbj3gCzzX8
