Pelosi Misquotes Congressional Oath of Office
Leave it to Nancy Pelosi to rewrite the swearing-in oath members of Congress take, in order to further the Barack Obama gun control agenda. The House Minority Leader, speaking at a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee hearing on “Gun Violence Prevention: A Call to Action,” misquoted the actual oath to include the idea the Congress must “protect and defend” the American people.
How does the actual oath read? Like this:
I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
