House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently admitted one truth about impeaching President Donald Trump that has everyone stunned.
While speaking at a Cornell University’s Institute of Politics and Global Affairs event in New York City, Pelosi admitted that Democrats trying to impeach Trump would be a political disaster for the Democrats.
Pelosi argued that Democrats pushing impeachment would not only fail in the Republican-controlled Senate, but it would likely not sit well with many American voters.
With the 2020 election heating up, Pelosi instead argued in favor of defeating Trump and Republicans at the ballot box, not by trying to impeach the president.
However, she did take a few shots at Trump and claimed that the president commits impeachable offenses every day, but again said trying to impeach Trump along party lines only plays into his hands.
“Every day, he’s obstructing justice by saying this one shouldn’t testify and that one shouldn’t testify and the rest. So he’s making the case, but he’s just trying to goad us into impeachment. And wherever you go, I say to my colleagues, whatever it is, be ready. And whatever it is, we’ll be ready.”
Pelosi was then asked about the Democrats strategy to investigate Trump on every front, and appeared to imply that Democrats would investigate the president slowly over time and build a case for impeachment.
“One thing leads to another,” Pelosi added. “One hearing leads to another, where they don’t tell the truth … and that might take us to a place. We have to have more, I believe we have to have more information. But our impeachment power is a justification for our getting that other information.”
Pelosi appeared to be arguing that Democrats are building an impeachment case now, and will use it if Trump wins the 2020 election.
Aside from Pelosi’s stunning admission about pumping the brakes on impeachment, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report clearly vindicates the president.
Earlier this month, Attorney General William Barr put the final nail in the collusion coffin and reiterated countless times that Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
Barr said he consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and they both determined there was no evidence to charge Trump with obstructing justice in the Russia probe.
The attorney general also made it clear that the White House offered “unfettered access,” “no redactions,” and “didn’t exert any executive privilege, which would be within their rights.”
This means that Trump and the White House provided Mueller’s team with essentially all of the records and documents they requested.
The president has been completely vindicated after the two-year Russia witch hunt.
Barr and Mueller have made it clear that there is no evidence of collusion or obstruction.
