( - After Easter -- a time, she said, "for deeper prayer and reflection" -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is demanding "the truth" about the coronavirus, and "the truth about what has put us in this position."

Hint: It's all President Trump's fault.

In a blistering April 14 letter to her Democrat colleagues, Pelosi presents the "truth" as she sees it.

Here's one of her "truths": "The truth is, a weak person, a poor leader, takes no responsibility.  A weak person blames others."

In total, Pelosi lists ten truths, some with bullet points, as follows:

The truth is that Donald Trump dismantled the infrastructure handed to him which was meant to plan for and overcome a pandemic, resulting in unnecessary deaths and economic disaster.

The truth is that in January Donald Trump was warned about this pandemic, ignored those warnings, took insufficient action and caused unnecessary death and disaster.

The truth is that Donald Trump told his most loyal followers that the pandemic was a hoax and that it would magically disappear, thus endangering lives and paving the way for economic disaster.

The truth is that we did not have proper testing available in March despite Trump repeatedly claiming that we did; and even now, we do not have adequate tests, masks, PPE, and necessary equipment, which creates unnecessary death and suffering.

The truth is because of an incompetent reaction to this health crisis, the strong economy handed to Donald Trump is now a disaster, causing the suffering of countless Americans and endangering lives.

The truth is a weak person, a poor leader, takes no responsibility.  A weak person blames others.

The truth is, from this moment on, Americans must ignore lies and start to listen to scientists and other respected professionals in order to protect ourselves and our loved ones.

"Here’s more that is true: the American people want us to work together," wrote the woman who hasn't spoken to President Trump in months and presides over a chamber that is in recess.

Pelosi listed two more truths:

"The truth is, one month later, we do not have appropriate testing...The truth is that we do not have the necessary hospital equipment."

At the end of her letter, Pelosi notes that "important decisions" lie ahead.

We can go forward confident that America, its competent and honest leaders and its people are fully capable of making the right choices and decisions to restore the American greatness that has been squandered.

But if we are not working from the truth, more lives will be lost, economic hardship and suffering will be extended unnecessarily and our children will not be safe, happy and learning. Our future will be healthy and prosperous if we no longer tolerate lies and deceit.

We must recognize the truth, we must speak the truth, we must insist on the truth and we must and will act upon it.

Pelosi signed her hostile letter "respectfully and sadly."
