House Majority Whip Claims Pelosi Has Already Begun Moving Toward Impeachment

Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) predicted the House will eventually impeach President Trump, disclosing that the Democrats intend to ‘educate’ the American people so that Speaker Nancy Pelosi will be able to conduct an ‘ironclad’ vote.

During a segment on CNN’s ‘State of the Union,’ Clyburn proceeded boldly where Pelosi has often tried to temper expectations.

Pelosi often conveys that impeachment is not a viable option citing the lack of support amongst the American voter and the political ramifications it would entail.

Clyburn, however, revealed that the process has already begun.

Building Their Case

“What [Speaker] Nancy Pelosi [D-Calif.] is trying to do, and the rest of us in the House of Representatives, is to develop a process by which we can efficiently move on this issue so that when we get to a vote, it would be something that she calls ironclad, I call effective,” he stated.

“I think we’ve already begun,” admitted Clyburn. “We’ve got all of these committees doing their work, we’re having hearings.”

Better yet, while Pelosi is apparently trying to hide her intentions from the people, Clyburn revealed that really, if you’re not on board with the pursuit of impeachment, you’re just not smart enough to understand.

“We do believe that if we sufficiently, effectively educate the public, then we will have done our jobs, and we can move on an impeachment vote and it will stand, and maybe it will be what needs to be done to incent the Senate to act,” he said.

Is it any wonder Pelosi is trying to keep things quiet? Impeaching a President a majority of Americans don’t want to see impeached, then telling those same voters that they’re just too stupid to understand, isn’t going to work out very well.

Pressuring Pelosi

If Clyburn’s comments are true, then public pressure from the resistance party and one wayward Republican is apparently working.

Steve Cohen (D-TN) recently told Pelosi that she needs to do the “patriotic” thing and impeach President Trump.

Justin Amash (R-MI) lowered the standards for impeachment to encapsulate “violat[ing] the public trust” in his call to move forward.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough (Journalist-White Padded Cell) compared Pelosi’s effort to impeach with that of Lincoln freeing the slaves.

And at the California Democratic Party’s convention this past weekend, she was interrupted by hecklers demanding that she take down the fairly elected President, despite investigations that cleared him of collusion or obstruction of justice.

During her speech, Pelosi hinted at what Clyburn has alleged.

“This isn’t about politics, it isn’t about partisanship, Democrats versus Republicans, no,” she said of a fabricated ‘cover-up.’ “It’s about patriotism, it’s about the sanctity of the Constitution and it’s about the future of our nation.”

“We will go where the facts lead us,” she continued. “We will insist on the truth. We will build an ironclad case to act.”

Make no mistake, Pelosi is heading down this path where Trump will eventually be the subject of an impeachment vote in the House. Should it get through, Republican Senators have already vowed to crush the effort.

  • Ironclad impeachment vote? Can you say Senate? I knew you could, little Richard Head.

  • "I think we’ve already begun,” admitted Clyburn. “We’ve got all of these committees doing their work, we’re having hearings."

    In other words, they (as usual) are shirking the job they were elected to do (legislate), and are simply continuing on the path to wasting time and taxpayer dollars. Time to send them all home, and remove their pensions and any other life-long benefits they have voted for themselves. Traitors do not deserve un-earned, special priveleges.

  • "They are playing a risky game and it could cost them." I believe it is more accurate to state that it is a risky game that will cost them dearly in 2020 and beyond! I don't believe the Dems have contemplated just how risky their ploy really is and what the real risk will be if the truth comes out in full about Clinton, the DNC, and all the deep state players that are involved in this sham. Once the truth is revealed, there won't be a hole deep enough or a rock large enough for these people to hide from the patriotic American public who will want justice.

  • Pelosi has nothing to do with the impeachment push. The radicals have taken over the Democrat Party, even though they are in the minority.

  • "ironclad"? It may be so for charges of impeachment in the House of Representatives. But that is only the first step. It would have to go to the Senate for a trial. It would requires sixty - seven votes for a conviction. And that is not "ironclad"! Whatever charges are created would have to be substantiated and proven. And a lot of information is likely to brought to public attention that democrats would prefer to remain hidden. They are playing a risky game and it could cost them.

  • Disgusting Democrats will stop at nothing. Their hatred for the president is ripping this country apart.

  • I hope the American People realize that they do not want any Democrat in a position of real power since their Juvenile behavior belongs in the Park Sandbox. Not one of the Democrats in Congress could actual get a job in the outside world without pulling strings to get them. They do not have the Mental Stability that job actually entails. Spending their lives just coasting though Congress providing them a better than average income is just in their Wheelhouse and anything that would cause them to have to THINK is outside of their abilities.
