Dead Language

Saw this in an NBC article:

‘Asked to further elaborate on her statement regarding bribery, Pelosi said, "Well, you know we’re talking Latin around here — e pluribus unum, from anyone, quid pro quo, bribery, and that is in the Constitution, attached to the impeachment proceeding."’

“E pluribis unum” is not “from anyone” - it’s “from many, one”! They sound similar, but what is going on here? I’m going to give Pelosi the benefit of the doubt, and blame the reporter, Rebecca Shabad.

I hope they fix it.
