Last Thursday, Pelosi claimed it would have been her “right, as Speaker” to have not seated Iowa House election winner, Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks despite her certified win by six votes over Democrat Rita Hart.
“If I wanted to be unfair, I wouldn’t have seated the Republican from Iowa, because that was my right on the opening day. I would have just said, ‘You’re not seated,’ and that would have been my right, as Speaker, to do,” Pelosi claimed.
