Democrats won back the House and the nation immediately braced for an ugly impeachment battle.
And then Nancy Pelosi revealed her shocking plan on if she would move against President Trump.
That’s when Trump said the two words Nancy Pelosi never thought she would hear.
Nancy Pelosi left jaws on the ground when she told the Washington Post, “I’m not for impeachment.”
That slammed the breaks on the freshmen Democrats – led by Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar – from pressing forward with an immediate impeachment push.
President Trump reacted by tweeting that he “greatly appreciated” Pelosi’s comments.
“President Donald Trump responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) assertion that Democrats would not try to impeach him in the House of Representatives.
“I greatly appreciate Nancy Pelosi’s statement against impeachment, but everyone must remember the minor fact that I never did anything wrong,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “The Economy and Unemployment are the best ever, Military and Vets are great – and many other successes!”
Since Democrats won a majority in the House of Representatives, the activist left has demanded Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.”
Pelosi and Trump are rarely on the same side of any issue.
But Pelosi knows the political risks of an impeachment fight fall squarely on the Democrats.
A politically motivated impeachment proceeding is dead on arrival in the Senate.
And it will only serve to motivate Republican voters to turn out in 2020.
Democrats think they can win this next election.
But many pundits believe President Trump is in a stronger position than many Democrats believe.
And the Democrats juicing the Republican base’s enthusiasm with articles of impeachment would strengthen Trump’s hand in 2020.
