All hell broke loose when Nancy Pelosi revealed her plans about impeaching Trump
When Democrats won the midterm election, their voters immediately demanded they impeach Donald Trump.
Freshman lawmakers like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Omar Ilhan led the charge to fulfill that wish.
And now all hell is breaking loose because Nancy Pelosi revealed her plans about impeaching Trump.
Democrats – led by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler – announced plans for a fishing expedition into President Trump’s personal and business life.
Many pundits assumed this was the first move in a political chess game ending with Democrats impeaching the President.
Pelosi threw cold water on those dreams.
She said “I’m not for impeachment.”
The Washington Post reports Pelosi stating:
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.
Even Nancy Pelosi knows a partisan impeachment effort will boost Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election chances.
However, she knows it is what her base demands.
So Pelosi is walking a tightrope.
Committee chairs like Nadler are conducting wide-ranging investigations to produce politically embarrassing results.
But will it result in articles of impeachment?
Experts believe Pelosi will eventually be forced to yield and allow a vote on impeachment.
