The cat is now out of the bag.
Democrats are scrambling to perform damage control on impeachment.
And that’s because Nancy Pelosi admitted one truth about impeachment that left Trump red with rage.
Nancy Pelosi finally admitted the truth about why the Democrats are pursuing impeachment.
In a “Dear Colleague” letter Pelosi sought to rebut Republicans attacks on impeachment that since this was taking place so close to the Presidential Election, the voters should decide Donald Trump’s fate.
Pelosi’s letter argued it would be “weak” and “dangerous” to let President Trump stand for re-election.
The Daily Caller reports:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doubled down on impeachment Monday, telling her Democratic colleagues in a memo that it was “weak” and “dangerous” to back off and let the American people decide in 2020.
“The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide.’ That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because POTUS is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections,” Pelosi explained.
Pelosi also asserted that the facts of the case were “uncontested,” saying that President Donald Trump “has abused his power for his own personal, political benefit, at the expense of our national security interests.” (RELATED: Democratic Rep: Some Democrats ‘Quietly’ Concerned About Impeachment, ‘Want To Move On’)
Pelosi responded to Republicans who have argued that president’s decision to withhold the aid is a non-starter because the aid was eventually released. “The aid was only released after the whistleblower exposed the truth of the President’s extortion and bribery, and the House launched a formal investigation,” she said.
This was not the first time Democrats admitted they wanted to impeach Donald Trump out of fear he would win in 2020.
Congressman Al Green has made that point in a TV interview.
But Green is a back bencher.
Nancy Pelosi is the shrewdest political operator in the Democrat Party.
And even Pelosi can see that without the intervening event of impeachment, Donald Trump stands a strong chance of winning re-election.
