Democrats are moving toward impeachment proceedings.
There is no doubt about that.
And Nancy Pelosi said three words that stopped Washington, D.C. dead in its tracks.
Nancy Pelosi was interviewed by Washington Post fake news reporter Robert Costa for a “Washington Post Live” event.
Costa brought up the possibility of holding Donald Trump in contempt of Congress if he asserts executive privilege to block former White House Counsel Don McGhan from testifying.
Pelosi gave a long and rambling answer and said Democrats impeaching President Trump was inevitable calling Trump’s conduct “self-impeachable.”
Pelosi replied, “Well, we don’t know that he has yet. Let’s take it one step at a time, let’s see where it goes. And I have said the president is goading us into, wants to goad us into impeachment because he knows, as do I, that that’s not a good thing for the country.”
She continued, “But the point is is that every single day, whether it’s obstruction obstruction obstruction obstruction of having people come to the table with facts, or ignoring subpoenas, every single day the president is making a case. He’s becoming self-impeachable, in terms of some of the things that he is doing.”
Costa asked, “Could there be an option for Democrats, that you would consider, of a narrow impeachment proceeding against President Trump about the issues you just raised, obstruction of Congress?”
Pelosi said, “Let me just say that right now, we have our committees doing the investigation. But since you mentioned 1974, at that time, Congress took months, months to build a case.”
Pelosi has tried to keep her foot on the brakes for impeachment.
But it’s clear that reluctance was always fake.
And now Pelosi is getting ready to let Democrats’ passion for impeachment run wild.
