Ex-House speaker Nancy Pelosi is getting scorched on social media for turning the American basics of justice and law upside down.

After the New Manhattan DA on Thursday released his political indictment of President Trump, she demanded that Trump "prove innocence.'

That's the reverse of the legal standard that no one has to "prove innocence," but in all cases, prosecutors must prove guilt, in criminal cases beyond a reasonable doubt. It's a standard that law students would be expected to be fully familiar with even before they begin their training.

Pelosi, apparently creating her own, brand new standard for criminal cases – in this case for President Trump, demanded, "The grand jury has acted upon the facts and the law. No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence. Hopefully, the former president will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right."
