Robert Mueller’s testimony was supposed to be the turning point in impeaching Donald Trump.
The former special counsel was expected to deliver the death blow to Trump’s Presidency.
But when it was all said and done, Nancy Pelosi made a surprising decision about impeachment that no one saw coming.
Robert Mueller’s testimony could not have gone worse for the Democrats.
Mueller could not remember basic facts about the investigation, had difficulty hearing questions, and generally appeared to possess diminished mental faculties.
That made it clear that the partisan Democrat lawyers – and not the supposedly Republican Mueller – were really in charge of the investigation.
Speaker Pelosi surveyed the wreckage and took the opportunity to stiff arm the pro-impeachment members of her caucus.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Pelosi admitted the Mueller Report was a bust and that if Democrats want to impeach the President, they would need to find other avenues.
During a press conference on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that any decision on impeachment has “to be done with our strongest possible hand” and there are still “outstanding matters in the courts.”
Pelosi said, “My position has always been that whatever decision we make in that regard would have to be done with our strongest possible hand. And we still have some outstanding matters in the courts. It’s about the Congress, the Constitution, and the courts. And we are fighting the president in the courts.”
Pelosi is playing for time.
The Democrat base hates Trump and demands Congress impeach the President no matter what.
But Pelosi also can read a poll.
And the House Speaker knows if Democrats go down the impeachment path, they will not only lose the White House again, but will also lose their House majority.
That’s why Pelosi tried to steer her Party’s pro-impeachment caucus toward court battles that will take months to resolve.
So that way Pelosi can buy time and squelch the impeachment talk at a later date by claiming that since the election is right around the corner the Democrats should not even bother.
