House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proudly unveiled Democrats’ latest effort to overturn the 2016 election Tuesday as she announced the formalization of an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Pelosi, appearing unsteady at times, proclaimed that “the president must be held accountable” for the “betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections.”
For all the media excitement about the House Speaker’s little speech, however, nothing official has changed from a procedural standpoint. To explain, Pelosi effectively endorsed a process, which to some degree has already been underway.
Pelosi specifically charged that the administration had violated the law by not turning over a whistleblower complaint concerning Trump’s July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Citing testimony that the director of national intelligence was blocking the release of that complaint, she said: “This is a violation of law. The law is unequivocal.”
Fun times and so hauntingly familiar are the House Speaker’s words. Reminds me of that time when Democrats couldn’t nail the President on Russian delusion and attempted to charge him with obstructing an investigation into a crime that never occurred.
Speaking of Russian collusion, are we done with that now? We’re moving on? Does this latest rabbit trail have Democrats’ full focus and attention for the next 3.5 seconds? Squirrel!
According to transcripts released by the White House of Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump sought an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, asked about a DNC server, but made no mention of U.S. aid.
Fun Fact: Former Vice President Joe Biden has acknowledged on camera that, when he was Vice President, he successfully pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, while Shokin was investigating the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings — where Hunter Biden was on the board. Shokin himself had separately been accused of corruption.
Bottom line, this is the same horsecrap the left has been pulling since they lost the election. In essence, the Democrats are paralyzed with hatred and attempting to impeach the President with a vengeance.
Plagiarism Alert: I stole that last line from a speech Nancy Pelosi gave in 1998 regarding the impeachment of Bill Clinton. That’s right; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was singing a very different tune on impeachment when it was President Bill Clinton who was being accused by a Republican-led House of Representatives.
“Today the Republican majority is not judging the president with fairness, but impeaching him with a vengeance,” then-House Minority Leader Pelosi declared on the House floor in December 1998.
She continued, “In the investigation of the president, fundamental principles which Americans hold dear — fairness, privacy, checks and balances — have been seriously violated and why? Because we are here today because the Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton. … Until the Republicans free themselves of that hatred, our country will suffer.”
