Nancy Pelosi had one closed-door meeting that changed her life forever
Nancy Pelosi waited eight years to regain the position of Speaker of the House.
But her reign may be short-lived.
That’s because Nancy Pelosi had one closed-door meeting that changed her life forever.
Pelosi and other Democrats told voters over and over again last fall that Democrats were not going to launch an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump if they won back control of the House of Representatives.
But impeachment fervor is building in the Democrat caucus as they extend their politically motivated fishing expeditions into Donald Trump’s private finances.
And in a closed-door meeting with her Democrat caucus, it became apparent that Pelosi was fighting a losing battle against the rising tide of impeachment building within the Democrat Party.
House Democratic leaders sparred internally on Monday over whether to begin an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her allies rejecting the call to move forward for now, according to multiple sources.
Reps. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Joe Neguse of Colorado — all members of Democratic leadership — pushed to begin impeachment proceedings during a leadership meeting in Pelosi’s office, said the sources. Pelosi and Reps. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico, Hakeem Jeffries of New York and Cheri Bustos of Illinois — some of her key allies — rejected their calls, saying Democrats’ message is being drowned out by the fight over possibly impeaching Trump.
Raskin — a former law professor — said he wasn’t advocating impeaching Trump but suggested that opening an impeachment inquiry would strengthen their legal position while allowing Democrats to move forward with their legislative agenda.
Some Democrats speculate Pelosi will be forced to accept an impeachment inquiry within the coming weeks.
Pelosi knows it’s a politically unwise move, but Democrats are motivated by such insane hatred of Donald Trump that they have abandoned all reason.
