Pelosi’s need for FBIprobe tough to consider

Re: “Pelosi needs FBI to analyze pro-Palestinian protesters” (Web page A3, Jan. 29).

Nancy Pelosi has known as for FBI investigations into people who find themselves advocating for a cease-fire in Gaza, suggesting that they’re doing Putin’s work. That is fairly frankly appalling.

Actually, she is conscious of the historical past of FBI “investigations” into the actions of individuals working for peace. The names of Martin Luther King and Leonard Bernstein, amongst many, come to thoughts. I’m dumbfounded by her notion that those that have an ethical revulsion on the slaughter of tens of hundreds of ladies and youngsters are one way or the other serving to Putin — and that not solely ought to we stop working for peace, however we ought to be investigated by the FBI.

Her statements are removed from the Nancy Pelosi whom I as soon as admired. It’s tough to consider that she feels that this persevering with slaughter in Gaza is justified as a result of stopping it will assist Putin.
