The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
She’s against impeaching President Donald Trump until she’s for it. – Hey, know how to tell Nancy Pelosi’s lying? Her lips are moving! Hah-hah-hahhhhhh!
Ok, yeah, it’s an old joke. Sadly for the nation, where San Fran Nan is concerned, it’s 100% true.
Monday afternoon, she told the Washington Post in an interview that she is opposed to moving to impeach President Trump, “unless (isn’t there always an “unless” or a “but” whenever any Democrat makes a “promise”?) there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan” that it becomes unavoidable.
Pelosi is further quoted by The Hill thusly: “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.”
This is all just another lie from the most dishonest Speaker since Texas’s own Jim Wright held the office 30 years ago. All one must do to understand Pelosi’s lie in this instance is to spend 2 minutes analyzing the coordinated efforts the various committee chairmen who she appointed are lining up to do literally nothing over the next 18 months other than try to build a case for impeaching the President.
The execrable Jerry Nadler got that ball rolling a week ago when his House Judiciary Committee sent out subpoenas to the President and no fewer than 81 associates. Adam Schiff and Elijah Cummings, who chair the House Intelligence and House Oversight Committees, respectively, will follow with a raft of their own subpoenas by the end of this month.
The whole point of this tri-committee Witch Hunt is to build a case for impeachment that becomes “compelling and overwhelming” enough to provide congressional GOP squishes the cover they want to join in an effort to remove Mr. Trump from office. That’s what San Fran Nan’s “unless” phrase mentioned above is all about.
She’s against impeachment right now, but no one should think that in any way means she plans to lift a finger to stop it. To the contrary, she made the committee appointments she made specifically to get the most shameless partisan hacks possible atop those three committees.
That’s the truth. This is who Nancy Pelosi is, and how she operates.
That is all.
