During a fundraiser in San Francisco last week Nancy Pelosi said, “Even if Republicans stonewall the Democrats’ requests to include more witnesses, Democrats have still won an important battle,” she claimed.
“Whatever they do, and however they try to run and hide from the truth, as I have said to the president—you are impeached forever,” Pelosi said, according to NBC News.
Although many Republicans have warned that the Democrats’ impeachment efforts will backfire among independent voters in the swing states, Pelosi claimed that public opinion is on her side.
“Over 70% of the American people have said that they want witnesses, and I think that is the leverage that the Democratic senators have, and hopefully some of the Republican senators as well,” she said.
Where is she getting this information? She’s pushing herself onto the Senate’s rules and she can’t do that. That’s out of her jurisdiction. She and the Dems in the House had their chance already and can’t influence the senate which she and Schumer are trying to do. They know Trump will be vindicated in the Senate and don’t want to see that happen.
It is the job of the house to impeach. It is the job of the Senate to try that impeachment. Dems had their chance and want it both ways and now want a do-over. They are all big crybabies because the election didn’t turn out their way.
It remained unclear whether Pelosi also supported the possibility of President Donald Trump’s defense attorneys calling to the stand witnesses like presumed whistleblower Eric Ciaramella, as well as former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Central to Trump’s defense will likely be that the corruption implicating the Bidens and their pay-to-play influence-peddling with the Burisma gas company justified calling on Ukraine to reopen its investigations into them, which had been suspended under duress during the Obama administration.
Pelosi encouraged Democrats to continued their attacks on Trump, regardless of what his defense may reveal.
“What this president did is worse than anything that any president has done,” she alleged, implicitly downplaying historical wrongs such as slavery and the exploitation of American Indians.
“We have to make sure that no president—no matter who he or she may be—can think they can get away with this,” Pelosi continued.
WOW, Pelosi is suffering from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome to think that Trump did things worse than slavery and the exploitation of the American Indians. Again I ask her, Where are you getting this poppycock information Nancy and just what did Trump do that was worse than slavery and exploiting the American Indians when he’s done more than any other president to make everyone’s lives better? That’s more than you and your dem colleagues ever did. I think Ms. Nancy is ready to be fitted for a nice white coat, the kind with wrap-around sleeves.
Trump did nothing wrong. If what he did was so wrong why didn’t you show it in your hearings, Mrs. Nancy? hmmmm?
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made it clear that the Senate will conduct the impeachment trial quickly and efficiently, pointing out that the Republican majority will almost certainly vote to acquit Trump.
But Pelosi countered that no matter what McConnell does, Trump is “never going to be exonerated.”
Hey Nancy, your district is covered in filth, people are defecating on the streets, needles all over the place, people living in filth on the sidewalks while you play at impeaching Trump in Washington. Clean up your own yard first before criticizing others.
McConnell blasted Pelosi last week for turning impeachment into a “sham” and treating it like a celebration.
“She signed the impeachment papers. And that took place at a table with a political slogan stuck on it. And they posed afterward, for smiling photos, and the Speaker distributed souvenir pens to her own colleagues emblazoned with her golden signature that literally came in on silver platters. Golden pens on silver platters. A souvenir, to celebrate the moment,” McConnell said on the Senate floor.
“Now, I seem to remember Democrats falling over themselves to say they did not see impeachment as a long-sought political win,” McConnell continued. “They recognized the gravity and seriousness of this action, and of course, they had only come to it reluctantly. Of course, nothing says seriousness and sobriety like handing out souvenirs.”
