Pelosi Never Actually Ruled Out Impeachment


March 14, 2019 at 9:09 am EDT By Taegan Goddard

Molly Ball: “Conventional wisdom in Washington tends to treat impeachment as a fringe crusade, on a par with campaigns by anti­fluoridation activists or UFO ­enthusiasts, and views Pelosi as right to resist this momentum. Many believe it would be a political disaster for Democrats, galvanizing Trump’s base and alienating moderates. Republicans have taken to goading their opponents to try it, while White House officials say they relish the prospect of the Democratic Party tearing itself apart over the issue.”

“But Pelosi is actually playing a deeper game. Her aides note that she’s never ruled impeachment out. All she’s done, they say, is set a ­standard: ­increased popular support and some degree of GOP backing. Behind the scenes, she and her team are working to see that standard is met.”

Said one senior Pelosi aide: “The easy thing to do would be to start down the path of impeachment. That’s a trap. Now that we have the gavel and can expose all of this wrongdoing, I think you will start to see a shift in public opinion and movement of Republicans.”

1. The Corporate media is going around saying that she didn't impeach W on the war on Iraq

The war was not the crimes most people wanted him Impeached for. It was the torture and spying on Americans without warrants that most wanted W Impeached for.

Funny how W's and Cheney's crimes are all just swept under the carpet. The same thing will happen with Traitor Trump.
