The fate of impeachment in the House of Representatives rests in Nancy Pelosi’s hands.
If Democrats move on impeachment, it could tear the country apart and upend the 2020 election.
And Nancy Pelosi just changed her mind on one big impeachment decision.
Democrats have been agitating for impeachment over a number of months.
But Pelosi brushed off these demands because she knows impeachment is politically toxic for Democrats in 2020.
However, in a letter to fellow Democrats over the weekend, Pelosi inched closer to authorizing an impeachment inquiry over the manufactured scandal surrounding a so-called “whistleblower’s” complaint about Donald Trump improperly requesting the new President of Ukraine investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter for corruption.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told members of Congress over the weekend that President Donald Trump’s interest in Joe Biden’s Ukraine scandals could bring about a “new stage of investigation” and ultimately impeachment.
“This violation is about our national security. The Inspector General determined that the matter is ‘urgent’ and therefore we face an emergency that must be addressed immediately,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to lawmakers on Sunday.
“If the Administration persists in blocking this whistleblower from disclosing to Congress a serious possible breach of constitutional duties by the president, they will be entering a grave new chapter of lawlessness which will take us into a whole new stage of investigation,” she continued.
According to an anonymous complaint revealed in reports last week, President Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into former vice president Joe Biden’s son — Hunter Biden — and his business dealings in the eastern European country. However, according to CNN, the whistleblower “didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications,” citing an official with knowledge of the matter.
Pelosi may have no choice in the matter.
Democrats need their base to turn out in 2020.
And unless Pelosi embraces this fool’s errand of impeachment, Democrat voters could sit on their hands next November.
