Now, we know that Democrats have basically been trying to impeach President Donald Trump to a greater or lesser degree since he was elected.
What’s his real crime? He won and threw them out of power. And that’s unforgivable, to them.
They’ve been desperately searching for the magic key to get him out and/or severely injure his chances of getting re-elected.
While we know that’s what they’ve been about, they’ve never been more blunt and explicit about it than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was on Sunday during an interview with ABC News. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) busted her on it, but good. Indeed, the language she used was concerning, to say the least.
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

He will be removed “one way or another?” What the heck is she saying there? It sounds threatening and not at all “prayerful.”
Have Pelosi DEFINE/EXPLIAN WHAT She means by "One way or another" https://t.co/9Y9woJaYTG

Sounds like the @SecretService needs to pay her a visit.

As Scalise says, “It’s clear: Impeachment was a Democrat hit job to stain Trump’s legacy and hurt him at the polls. Nothing more.”
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) was on it too.
Democrats keep repeating this line that “Trump will be an impeached President forever.”
Remember this, next time they try to pretend they were “prayerfully” or “reluctantly” impeaching @realDonaldTrump. They weren’t.
It was all about trying to politically damage the President.

They wanted to be able to say he’s “impeached forever”, which they are — even using it as a hashtag.
We knew that, but now Pelosi has as much as admitted it.
