House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared at the “Time 100 Summit” in New York City on Tuesday, where the Democratic leader said the House may have “no choice” but to impeach President Trump.
“I do believe impeachment is one of the most divisive forces — paths we could go down to in our country,” Pelosi said. “But if the facts, the path of fact-finding takes us there we have no choice but we are not there yet.”
“No choice?” Is Pelosi backing down from her former statements that she would not seek impeachment? Is she caving in to the increasingly powerful far-left flank of her party?
Last Thursday, Pelosi called for a Democrats-only phone call to explore how Democrats should handle Trump in the wake of the release of the Mueller report.
“Rep. Nancy Pelosi wants to have a meeting with Democrats to see what steps they could take to go after the Mueller report,” The Political Insider reported. “Rep. Jerry Nadler subpoenaed the report on Friday, even though Barr said he was going to release an unredacted copy for select lawmakers.”
The Huffington Post reported:
Pelosi asked for the conference call to take place on Monday in a letter to Democrats. In her letter, Pelosi described the special counsel’s findings as a “grave matter.”
The speaker also said the nature in which the Justice Department released the findings was “disrespectfully late” and “selectively redacted.”
“The Caucus is scheduling a conference call for Monday to discuss this grave matter, which is as soon as our analysis and this Holy Season’s religious traditions allow,” Pelosi said.
“Congress will not be silent,” she concluded. [HuffPost]
Congress will not be silent about WHAT, exactly? Robert Mueller found no crimes. No evidence of collusion. No obstruction. No reason for any indictments.
Mueller was the Democrats’ GUY. They put their entire faith in him, and he still came up with nothing.
Pelosi is right that Congress won’t be silent – because Democrats won’t shut up about wrongdoing on the part of Trump that doesn’t exist.
The American people are fed up with this. Let Nancy Pelosi and her friends try to impeach President Trump.
But don’t be surprised if the 2020 election blows up in your face.
