After over two and a half years of butting heads with President Trump, the leader of the Democratic Party Nancy Pelosi, has made a shocking statement- saying, she believes continuing the effort to impeach Trump is “not worth it.” Pelosi told the Washington Post that she believes continuing to press for impeachment would be too divisive.
The Washington Post quotes her saying, “I’m not for impeachment…I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. 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. And he’s just not worth it.”
This is VERY different from what her fellow Democrats are saying. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Al Green, and Rashida Tlaib went on TV immediately after Pelosi’s quote went live and contradicted their party leader. They are all still 100% for impeachment, and actively working to bring articles against the President. They even tried to give Nancy a way out by promising she didn’t mean what she said.
Many have drawn the conclusion that Pelosi recognizes the Mueller probe is not going to deliver the damning evidence against the President like everyone in her party wants it to. Pelosi could have easily said that she would like to wait until Mueller’s team completes their reports. She could have said that she would like to see what the House Intelligence Committee has to say about the issue before throwing in the towel. Instead, she has taken a clear stance against further attempts to oust President Trump.
This is out of character for Democrats, and especially for Pelosi. We’ve grown to expect the left to take any shot they think has even a remote chance of hurting President Trump. The Kavanaugh accusation is a prime example. They had less than zero evidence. In fact- they came charging at the would be Justice with a portfolio of claims and contradictions that made them look like liars.
Stunned by her statement, the anti-Trump newspaper asked for clarification, saying, “Do you believe Trump is fit to be President?”
Pelosi replied, “I don’t think he’s fit to be President of the United States. And that’s up to us to make the contrast to show that this president- while he may be appealing to you on your xenophobia, whether it’s globalization or immigrants- is against clean air for your children to breathe, clean water for them to drink, food safety, every good thing we should be doing.”
Trying to leave the building, Pelosi added, “I don’t usually talk about him this much. This is the most I’ve probably talked about him. I hardly ever talk about him. You know, it’s not about him. It’s about what we can do for the people to lower health-care costs, bigger paychecks, cleaner government.” We think the Lady doth protest too much.
Why would she say this when the Democrats have invested millions of dollars in the impeachment effort? They have ruined the lives of dozens of people, weaponizing politics and prosecuting anyone ever affiliated with the President on petty process crimes.
One marker proving the whole Russia collusion storyline is a hoax and Pelosi knows it came from the recent publication of the closed door testimony of Bruce Ohr. The transcripts reveal no Democrats even bothered to come to the closed door joint hearing between the Oversight and Judiciary committees to hear Ohr’s testimony about Russian collusion. (They save their appearances on the Capitol only for when the cameras are there like in the Michael Cohen hearing.)
Ohr was the DOJ contact for the fake pee pee dossier creator Christopher Steele. Ohr took information from Steele and Hillary propaganda partner Fusion GPS and delivered it to Obama’s favorite FBI and DOJ ranking members.
It seems Pelosi must not have made the rest of her party aware of her inklings because there are a handful of freshman congresswomen who are still quite eager to see Donald Trump ejected from the Oval Office. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, perhaps the most vocal among them, was humiliated by the President during the State of the Union Address. After the President elicited applause from the white coats- of which AOC was a member- he pointedly made reference to her Green New Deal proposal and said, “The United States of America will never be a socialist country.”
In light of the fact that Pelosi knows the President hasn’t committed any crimes and therefore can’t be impeached she’s working to distance herself from the so-called “fresh faces” of the left. These are the junior members like AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar who have been heavily criticized for their remarks and actions since entering Congress.
Seems like Pelosi knows is trying desperately to hold onto whatever power she can and unload Trump Derangement Syndrome onto the unruly new democratic members. It could be that Pelosi sees this as a last ditch effort to rein in her out of control party. She knows if she doesn’t Democrats will lose the House in 2020, impeachment proceedings will fail in a blaze of glory and Trump will win by a landslide in 2020!
