In a move sure to rile up the radical freshman Democrats taking charge in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted she doesn’t support impeachment for President Trump.
In an interview with the Washington Post magazine, Pelosi said that “unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan,” pursuing impeachment would only serve to further divide an already politically fractured nation.
“I’m not for impeachment,” she told the publication.
“This is news. I haven’t said this to any press person before,” Pelosi continued. “But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this, impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country.”
“He’s just not worth it,” she added.
Pelosi, who just had her hat handed to her by freshman Democrats during the Ilhan Omar condemnation debacle, still managed to make some comments to throw a bone to the radicals, calling the President “ethically,” “intellectually,” and “curiosity-wise unfit.”
The New York Post editorial board writes that Pelosi’s admission stating she would need “something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan,” is proof that “there isn’t” anything.
It should also be noted that for all of her faults, Pelosi is a cold and calculating politician when it comes to her opponents. She knows what she’s doing. These preemptive strikes against impeachment may very well serve as a means to soften the blow for when the Mueller investigation is completed and they more than likely conclude there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Pelosi’s comments, whatever the reasoning, will surely rile up her extremist base.
On day one of the Democrat party’s takeover of the House, Rep. Brad Sherman, a California Democrat, announced his plans to bring forward articles of impeachment against President Trump.
Other Democrat lawmakers such as Al Green (TX), Chuck Schumer (NY), and Maxine Waters (CA), have also made comments in the past supportive of the effort to impeach.
Then, of course, there was Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who famously screeched to her supporters that we’re “going to impeach the motherf***er.”
“I happen to disagree with that take,” socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said of Pelosi’s statement. “But you know, she’s the speaker… I think we’ll see.”
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland took a shot at Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, and Omar, noting that Pelosi has more Democrats that she serves than just the freshman in Congress.
“We’ve got 62 new (Democratic) members,” he said. “Not three.”
In other words, ‘you’re not nearly as important as you think you are.’
However, as we stated before, those same three radicals managed to run roughshod over Pelosi and more moderate Democrats when it came to condemning Omar over her clearly anti-Semitic comments.
Is this a stand Hoyer and Pelosi are now going to take in order to reassert their power? Sounds like a fight may be brewing.

I WOULDN'T TRUST PELOSI AS FAR AS I COULD THROW HER!!!!!! SHE'S DANGEROUS AND CRAZY!
AOC is just someone that the Justice Democrats (ties with George Soros) hired to do their work after she won their contest. She is nothing but a puppet. She has nothing to do with the green new deal, nothing. She is being told what to say, except when she decides she wants some of owns words in, then sounds like a total fool. She is nothing but a fake. The Justice Democrats want to take over first our government then the whole USA. Nancy and Chuckie don't have much longer in congress. Look up justice democrats on line or on you tube and see for yourself
i love a good circus act, we have so few now days, can't wait for oct. to come, it ought to be one glorious show. got my popcorn all ready, how about you folks.
gee, a two faced rat is gonna desert the ship, how surprising.
He's not worth it. Why have you funded crooked cop Mueller and his gang of anti-Trump left wing lawyers to the tune of $20 million+ ???
Either she knows all the pieces aren't in place yet (troops to suppress the citizens that will get a bit upset) or she is planning to continue some nefarious greedy plan while he is in office for her own betterment (keep your friends close and your enemies closer) or suddenly they've discovered they will be forced into admitting the coup d'etat they attempted and that it failed and why (when Mueller has NO evidence of ANY of the things they've alleged it will be obvious even when they do NOT allow any info into the public) -- JNotice how they've re-written the rules on double-jeopardy to further ostracize trumps lawyer, it seems they'd like to continue removing all persons suspected of being of a conservative bent... from any effective or influential position BEFORE they assume power - can't do that if he is NOT in power..
I hope when Trump is reelected it helps sweep the republicans back in control of both houses.
Pelosi's going to cave, you watch.
Just like this crap with the Anti-Semitism, Pelosi will cave for no other reason than to interfere with the workings of government.
