House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi just sunk to a new low. Pelosi has started a cash grab for her own reelection campaign using fake news that President Donald Trump will fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The California liberal sent out an email last week with the subject line “Mueller FIRED” and asked for supporters to donate money to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
But, there is one big problem with her email: Mueller has not been fired.

The mail began, “I’m so furious I can barely write this email,” Pelosi wrote, according to The Washington Examiner. “President Trump is inches away from firing Robert Mueller and derailing the entire Russia investigation.”
However, Trump tweeted on Thursday, “If I wanted to fire Robert Mueller in December, as reported by the Failing New York Times, I would have fired him. Just more Fake News from a biased newspaper!”

Pelosi’s email was sent out only a day after Trump once again stated that he had no plans to fire Mueller — which means she knowingly lied.

The liberal leader went on to state in her email, “my Republican colleagues are actively HELPING him. They’re jeopardizing our democracy, our national security, and the safety of every election we hold. Frankly, they can’t be trusted.”
She asked, “I need a MASSIVE 24-hour fundraising surge to send them a powerful message: If they let Trump fire Mueller, we’ll kick each and EVERY one of them out of office.”
Not surprisingly, Pelosi described Mueller as the Democrats’ “only hope for justice.”
The email grew criticism from spectators on Twitter —

The DCCC's subject lines may not have contributed to the fake news crisis, but damned if they help. https://t.co/qrM9JX9ccD

In Pelosi’s email, there were hyperlinks included to directly donate money to the DCCC in increments of $1, $35, $50, $100, $250 or other amounts “immediately.”
We can thank Pelosi for giving Trump even more credibility in his battle against liberals spreading fake news.
