House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in an interview with ABC News, threatened the President saying “one way or another” he will be removed from office by next year.
She added that Democrats “may have him removed sooner” than that.
This doesn’t sound like the same woman who promised impeachment had no political motivation. That it pained her greatly to the point of prayer to even engage in the process.
“It’s Sunday morning — let’s be optimistic about the future … a future that will not have Donald Trump in the White House, one way or another, 10 months from now we will have an election, if we don’t have him removed sooner,” she said.
No, this isn’t politically motivated at all. Except it is. And Crazy Nancy, as Trump likes to call her, just admitted the desired outcome is not justice, it is the removal of the President of the United States.
Pelosi said today:
– Trump won’t be president next year “one way or another”
– Dems may “have him removed sooner” than the election
– Trump “will be impeached forever”
It’s clear: Impeachment was a Democrat hit job to stain Trump’s legacy and hurt him at the polls. Nothing more. pic.twitter.com/LY4TUwNiuZ

Pelosi Receives Blowback
Granted, Nancy Pelosi is no doubt discussing one of two ways for the President to be removed from office – the election, or conviction in the Senate.
That said, can you imagine for a minute that President Trump had tweeted something about the ‘Squad’ telling them they’d be “removed” from office? They would have insisted he was making death threats.
Pelosi was subject to her fair share of criticism, still.
Rep. Steve Scalise suggested her comments made it clear: “Impeachment was a Democrat hit job to stain Trump’s legacy and hurt him at the polls. Nothing more.”
“Remember this, next time they try to pretend they were ‘prayerfully’ or ‘reluctantly’ impeaching [Trump],” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) added. “They weren’t.”
“It was all about trying to politically damage the President.”
George @GStephanopoulos, ask Crazy Nancy why she allowed Adam “Shifty” Schiff to totally make up my conversation with the Ukrainian President & read his false words to Congress and the world, as though I said it? He got caught! Ask why hearing was most unfair & biased in history?

Pelosi Admits This Was the Plan From Day 1
Readers of the Political Insider have always known this was a political hit job on the President.
It doesn’t matter that Pelosi has pretended to be “prayerful” and sorrowful over the situation she’s put this country in. It didn’t matter when she pretended she had no interest in impeaching Trump prior to the midterm elections in 2018.
Pelosi is a liar, through and through. And lying liars lie – it’s what they do. But sometimes they slip up with an accidental truth.
Such was the case a few weeks ago when she blasted critics for the rushed impeachment hit job.
Straight from the Speaker → Their #ShamImpeachment has been YEARS in the making.

“All I hear from the press is that we’re moving so swiftly, that it’s like a blur going by,” she complained. “This has been a couple of years – two and a half – since the initial investigation.”
There you have it. Nancy Pelosi has been planning this hit job, to have Trump removed from office before the election, since the moment he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.
