Nancy Pelosi Admits Democrats Have Nothing on President Trump
Democratic House Speaker backs off on calls for impeachment
Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has admitted for the first time that the Democrats have nothing on President Donald Trump as she publically backs off on calls for his impeachment.
In a surprising turn of events on Monday, Speaker Pelosi announced that she's now against impeaching President Trump unless “something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan” arises, which it hasn't.
Pelosi will have access to any evidence the Democrats actually have against President Trump and has a clear understanding of what Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s Russia probe report will say.
The speaker now claims that moving to impeach Trump would be “divisive to the country,” meaning it's also bad for the Democratic Party, as she recognizes that they have nothing that will persuade anyone who hasn’t wanted Trump ousted since Election Day 2016.
"I’m not for impeachment," Pelosi told The Washington Post.
"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."
Pelosi later added: "I don’t think he’s fit to be president of the United States."
According to the Daily Wire, Pelosi's comments contrast to the far-left wing of the Democratic Party — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — who have called for his impeachment.
Speaking to the far-left group MoveOn hours after being sworn into office, Tlaib yelled: "we're gonna go in there and we're going to impeach the motherf****r."
Omar and Tlaib later signed a pledge in February to impeach the president.
Last June, Ocasio-Cortez said: "I would support impeachment. I think that you know, we have the grounds to do it."
Any move to impeach the president would most likely be met with strong opposition as the president's approval rating hovers around 50%, according to Rasmussen Reports.
Trump has also rock-solid support from the Republican base, as The Hill reported late last year: "More GOP voters associate with President Trump than they do with the Republican Party itself, underscoring the degree to which Trump has taken over the GOP brand, according to a new poll."
Another factor looming in the decision will be the outcome of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, which could conclude in the near future.
Reuters reported: "The big question is whether Mueller will present evidence of criminal conduct by the president himself.
"Such findings could prompt the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to begin the impeachment process laid out in the Constitution for removing a president from office for 'treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.'"
While Mueller's investigation has resulted in charges being brought against multiple people, the charges are for things not related to actions taken by the Trump campaign.
On Sunday, ABC News' Terry Moran noted that if Mueller's report shows no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia that there will be a reckoning.
"The most central and most serious question in this investigation, the reason Robert Mueller started it is, did the current president of the United States assist the Kremlin in an attack on our democracy?" Moran said.
"And if Mueller, after two years, comes back and says, 'I don't have the evidence to support that charge,' that's a reckoning.
"That's a reckoning for progressives and Democrats who hoped that Mueller would essentially erase the 2016 election.
"It's a reckoning for the media. It’s a reckoning around the country if, in fact, after all this time there was no collusion."
Now, will Pelosi call off the dogs?
Committee Chairmen Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff will keep on subpoenaing away, and grandstanding for the cameras — in hopes of maybe somehow, someday, somewhere finding some genuine dirt, while at least harassing the president, his family, and associates and feeding an endless string of breathless this time, Trump is going down reports.
Just as impeachment would be bad for the Democrats, chances are Americans will note that the press has been blaring those “scoops” for more than two years now, and not a one has panned out.
Keeping it up only shows that not just the Democratic Party, but also most of the media, can’t stop themselves from playing to the unhinged left.
