Nancy Pelosi is telling any reporter that will listen that Democrats are not trying to impeach the President.
That lie went up in smoke.
And it’s all because Chuck Schumer went on TV and let the cat out of the bag on Nancy Pelosi’s plan to impeach Donald Trump.
In an interview on Morning Joe, Chuck Schumer made it clear the only question about Democrats launching an impeachment inquiry was when it would happen.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Thursday spoke with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” regarding President Donald Trump’s impeachment as House Democrats continue to push for it.
Schumer cautioned that the impeachment process is long and “slow moving,” but said the president will not be able to “upend it.”
“The process is deep and strong, but slow-moving,” Schumer stated. “And that’s how [the Founding Fathers] wanted it and that’s how it is, but it’s worked pretty well for 220 years and I don’t think someone like Donald Trump is going to be able ultimately to upend it, as long as the American people don’t become just apathetic and who cares what happens.”
Schumer’s interview came on the same day Pelosi tried to sell reporters on the fact that Democrats were “not there” on impeachment.
The two leaders failed to get their stories straight and it delivered a political gift to Donald Trump.
Trump has tried to portray the Democrats as the party of impeachment.
Pelosi resisted this label and stumbled and stammered her way through a press conference where she tried to claim Democrats would not rush into any impeachment proceeding.
The Speaker knows that every survey shows impeachment is deeply unpopular.
But Schumer let the cat out of the bag and now all Americans know exactly what the Democrats are up to.
