Why would anyone anywhere think to take you at your word? We've been watching for the last three years, you know. You aren't to be trusted any farther than I can caber toss the Washington Monument. Speaker Pelosi probably treated you far better than you deserve.

9. Because, as I was reminded today in a round about way, Nancy doesn't mess around.

She's as serious as a heart attack. And if she's stuck her neck out on this historic impeachment inquiry, you have to trust that she's got tRump and anyone else who stands against the law, by the balls.

16. And there's another thing going on here with her-

I.e., I think she (and the entire CA Democratic delegation) have had enough with the bullying shakedowns using federal agencies to target those on an enemy list (her and her state) -

Trump officials threaten to withhold highway funding from California for its ‘chronic air quality problems’

By
Juliet Eilperin and Dino Grandoni
September 24, 2019 at 11:14 a.m. EDT

Trump administration officials threatened this week to withhold federal highway funding from California, arguing that the state has not shown what steps it is taking to improve its air quality. The move by the Environmental Protection Agency escalates the fierce battle between President Trump and the left-leaning state, and could put billions in federal funding in jeopardy.

In a predated letter sent late Monday to the California Air Resources Board, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler suggested that the state “has failed to carry out its most basic tasks under the Clean Air Act” and needs to either update its plans to tackle air pollution or risk losing federal money.

At stake, the EPA said, are billions of dollars in federal highway funding every year. Federal officials have the right to halt that money if they determine that a state is not taking sufficient steps to show how it aims to cut air pollution such as soot or smog-forming ozone.

In the letter, Wheeler notes that 34 million Californians live in areas that don’t meet federal National Ambient Air Quality Standards, more than twice as many residents as any other state. California has more than 130 “state implementation plans,” which serve as blueprints for how California would tackle these pollutants, awaiting federal approval. “California has the worst air quality in the United States,” he wrote, adding that many of its plans “are inactive and appear to have fundamental issues” that would keep them from getting approved.

Trump: Can we work something out?

The Speaker should've said, "Yes, RESIGN and we won't impeach you."

27. It's the only way he knows how to do anything - it's all transactional.

You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours. He thought he could make a deal to get off the hook, and I'll bet he was surprised to be told to go pound sand.

31. Couldn't

that be added to the list of offenses?

What is the attempt to try to influence a lawmaker to work out something in order to avoid the ramifications when that would then result in obstructing justice?

If you had a court case tomorrow and called the Judge up on the phone: "Hey, I was wondering if we could work something out about my trial tomorrow?" then that is what I am implying.

39. "Hey Crazy Nancy!"

 

"I call you names and stab everyone in the back first chance I get! Can we make a deal to drop the impeachment talk that could wreck your political opposition?"

I imagine Trump showing such desperation only increased her confidence in the decision.
