6 January was not a “Constitutional Crisis”

The weekend after the 6 January events, I found myself watching “60 Minutes.” I don’t normally watch this show but was intrigued that Leslie Stahl would be airing her interview with Speaker Pelosi. I needed to hear her account of what happened.

The lead-in to the interview referred to the 6 January events as a “constitutional crisis.” I think the term was misapplied. A constitutional crisis is a situation that arises where no clear guidance exists. The situation on 6 January was not that.
