Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just confessed what we knew all along: Democrats have been trying to impeach President Donald Trump since he came into office.
It was never about “holding Trump accountable” — it’s all about removing him from office and replacing him with one of their own.
Democrats abusing power
According to Breitbart, Pelosi appeared at Politico’s Women Rule Summit and was asked a question regarding the rather speedy pace at which impeachment is moving along, to which she replied: “Speed? It’s been going on 22 months — two and a half years, actually.”
She continued: “I think we are not moving with speed. Was it two a half years ago they initiated the Mueller investigation? It’s not about speed. It’s about urgency.
“If we did not hold him accountable, he would continue to undermine our elections,” Pelosi added. “Nothing less is at stake than the central point of our democracy, of a free and fair election not to be disrupted by foreign powers.”
Nancy Pelosi is using Robert Mueller’s investigation, which actually exonerated President Trump, as evidence against him. She is still accusing Trump of colluding with a foreign power, an accusation that the special counsel cleared him of several months ago.
This admission comes after Pelosi said that the House had “no choice” but to advance impeachment, the Los Angeles Times notes. However, Pelosi is lying about why Democrats advanced impeachment. The simple answer is they have no political choice.
Democrats went all-in when they started impeachment proceedings. That is why, in spite of the lack of evidence, they have continued to make false claims about Trump’s conduct.
It is too late for Democrats to go back. Once the ball got rolling on this thing, they had no choice but to proceed. Pelosi, Nadler, and Schiff have chosen this hill to die on, and they’re taking the Democrat party with them for better or worse.
Indeed, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) also admitted on Tuesday that Democrats are desperately pursuing impeachment because it’s the only way to stop Trump from winning in 2020 again.
Democrat leadership is in trouble though, because they can’t drop impeachment now that they’ve gotten this far. But as time has gone on, some of the less impeachment-happy members of the House have begun to grumble about the implications of pushing an unfair impeachment through to its conclusion.
A Senate trial will expose everything that Democrats did in the House in their attempts to incriminate Trump. Furthermore, a Senate trial is very likely to end up swinging public opinion in favor of Republicans leading into the election. Impeachment may very well destroy Democrats, and after all that’s happened, they may deserve it.
