Nancy Pelosi got the last news she ever expected about impeaching Donald Trump

Nancy Pelosi is trying to hold off a Democrat stampede on impeachment.

Speaker Pelosi knows that it’s a politically disastrous path that will only serve to boost Donald Trump’s re-election chances.

But now, Nancy Pelosi got the last news she ever expected about impeaching President Trump.

Robert Mueller’s disastrous testimony before Congress was thought to destroy any remaining chance of impeachment.

Instead, a batch of Democrat lawmakers came out over the weekend in favor of impeachment.

That means nearly half of all Democrats in the House now support impeachment.

Politico reports:

Four more rank-and-file Democrats called for opening an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump on Sunday, inching lawmakers closer to a significant symbolic milestone: a majority of all House Democrats.

Though the steadily climbing total may not move Speaker Nancy Pelosi off of her resistance to opening a formal impeachment inquiry, Sunday’s burst of support suggests momentum behind the effort is growing and accelerating. More than a dozen Democrats — including Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), a member of Pelosi’s leadership team — have newly signaled their support since former special counsel Robert Mueller testified to Congress on Wednesday.

The four who issued their support on Sunday, all from Washington state, bring the total number of House Democrats who have publicly said they’d vote for an impeachment inquiry to 107 — 11 shy of a majority of the Democratic Caucus — with backers of an inquiry promising there are more waiting in the wings.

The lawmakers received a significant endorsement a short time later from Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, the third highest-ranking Democrat in the Senate and a close ally of Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Murray said in a statement that “as we have learned more about the gravity of the potential threats to our democracy identified in Special Counsel Mueller’s report, it has become clear the House should begin proceedings to determine whether the President’s actions necessitate impeachment.”

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler also supports an impeachment inquiry.

And if a critical mass of House Democrats supports impeachment, Nadler can steamroll Pelosi and try remove Trump from office.

  1. Well why is Schiff on an intelligence committee in congress then that stupid crook has got as much intelligence as my little toe.

  2. Several times now I have heard on T.V. or read in articles the Democrats refer to “our democracy.” How can it be “our democracy” when Demorats don’t believe in democracy. They believe in totalitarian dictatorship. Read the historical account of the 1917 Russian Revolution and the subsequent establishment of the Soviet State. Today’s Democrat Party. They are so much alike you can’t tell the difference. Right down to their slogans and rhetoric. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

  3. Hillary,George Soros and barracks obama that’s who. Doesn’t take a a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

  4. It took a moment, but did you mean “imbecile” (embezzle)? Otherwise, I understand

  6. If the demonRATS impeach Trump it will automatically hand him reelection,the people are just plain sick and tired of the demonRATS!I know I will NEVER AGAIN vote for a demonRAT under ANY circumstance! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ALREADY!

  7. All votes from these states can be run through the trash grinder. Totally useless, but law enforcement will have to watch over everything.

  8. Clinton was impeached by the House. After that vote, it goes to the Senate for trial. Unfortunately during Clinton’s Senate trial, some judge decided the Senate could not call any witnesses, but had to relie on past depositions. The Senate had enough votes to impeach but decided it would not be good for the country

  9. Hey, Pelosi. Just heard that the state of California and the state of Washington just passed there state law to BAN President Trumps name off the 2020 election ballots. Too bad , because I don’t think any Votes from these two states will be counted in our 2020 elections. Your votes wont be counted either. bye bye demorats.
