Pelosi also discussed the ongoing fight for abortion rights in upcoming elections. When asked about her trust in the Supreme Court, Pelosi responded: "No, I think they've gone rogue. It's most unfortunate," She particularly criticized Chief Justice John Roberts for his role in the decision to roll back abortion rights, questioning, "What happened to the chief justice? Did he go weak or did he go rogue? I don't know."  Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Her comments come at a time of historically low public confidence in the Court, fueled by controversial rulings and ethical questions surrounding several justices.  Kara Hawley/American-Statesman / USA TODAY NETWORK
