In an interview with the Washington Post Magazine, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked why she was opposed to impeaching President Trump.
“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. 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.” Meow.
Pelosi is saying that the Democrats have no “evidence” that Trump has committed an impeachable offense. If they did, they would surely use it.
Pelosi was asked if she believed Trump was fit to be president?
“Are we talking ethically? Intellectually? Politically? What are we talking here? All of the above. No. No. I don’t think he is.”
Powerful, substantive answer Nancy.
She said she was “respectful of the office that he holds…I just tell him what I think. [I’m] hopeful that at some point we can find common ground that he’ll stick to. So, yeah, respectful, honest and hopeful.
According to the Washington Post, Pelosi also accused the president of “disregarding the Constitution of the United States [and] disregarding our commitments to the world in terms of our commitment to NATO, to Paris climate, to our values.”
When asked if she thought Trump had done anything good for America, Pelosi quipped: “He’s been a great organizer for Democrats, a great fundraiser for Democrats and a great mobilizer at the grass-roots level for Democrats. And I think that’s good for America.”
Message to Nancy Pelosi:
The performance by House Democrats since taking over the majority in January has been a walking, talking campaign ad for Republicans.
- You are the Speaker in name only. AOC has taken over the leadership position in the House.
- You lost your power when you allowed/were forced to rewrite your anti-Semitism resolution.
- You would impeach Trump in a heartbeat if only you had “evidence.”
- A recent poll indicated that only 20% of Americans are ready for socialism. The majority, not so much.
Maybe you should direct your attention to the divisions within your own party.
