Nancy Pelosi makes absurd claim regarding democratic support for impeachment


Nancy Pelosi has been on an island, all by herself, for some time.

Her constant, nagging refusal to open impeachment proceedings against President Trump has been the crux of a major national issue for months now, as the democratic party angrily flails around her.

Pelosi’s belief is that any impeachment proceedings against Trump would end in a fiery mess in the republican-controlled Senate – a theory that seems to be supported by the rhetoric coming from the right.  Furthermore, a failed impeachment would give the incumbent President loads of ammunition to use during his reelection campaign in 2020, and would put targets on the backs of democrats who are also seeking reelection.

Still, the party has been publicly demanding such a move despite Pelosi’s objections.

Now the Speaker of the House is simply ignoring her fellow democrats, and telling the American people, falsely, that there is little support for impeachment.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday downplayed the support inside her caucus for impeaching President Trump, saying House Democrats who oppose it outnumber those vocally pushing for it.

“It’s not even close in our caucus,” Pelosi said during an on-stage interview at the Fiscal Summit in Washington hosted by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation.

Pelosi was responding to a question about whether she would move forward with impeachment if a majority of her caucus supported it. The speaker, who has resisted impeachment so far despite growing calls from the progressive wing of her party, declined to say. “Why are we speculating on hypotheticals?” she asked.

This flies in the face of the incessant and pressing calls for impeachment that the nation has endured from democrats, (and republican Justin Amash), in the wake fo the Mueller report’s release, and only serves to highlight the intense hypocrisy of the democratic party.
