Pelosi Admits They’ve Been Trying to Impeach Trump For 2 1/2 Years

Nancy Pelosi claimed that

  • “’No member, regardless of party or politics, comes to Congress to impeach a president,’ Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, said during the floor debate on two articles of impeachment against Mr. Trump.” (WASHINGTON TIMES)

Maxine Waters and Rashida Tlaib literally came to Congress wanting that. Also, Nancy admitted it is what she wanted, via THE FEDERALIST PAPERS

But five days before that speech she gave another where she let the American citizens see behind the curtain.

“You’ve been hesitant for weeks to make the move and cautious to make this move to impeach. Was there an ‘aha’ moment for your personally, a piece of evidence or testimony that swayed you now to take this step?” a reporter asked.

“Well, I’m glad you asked that question, because all I hear from the press is that I move so swiftly that it’s like a blur going by.

“This has been a couple of years – two and a half – since the initial investigation of the U.S. – of the Russian involvement in America’s election, which started much of this and led to other things,” she said.

Was it a mistake? It could be that she did not mean to say that. But wait, there was another reporter, another question and another answer.

“So, all along I said for two years, this is an impeachment, it is not a pleasant experience, it can be divisive. We don’t take any glee in this at all. It is heartbreaking,” she said.

Two mistakes? That is possible. Everyone makes mistakes. Let’s see her answer to a third question.

“We feel comfortable with all of the time that has gone into this, two and a half years since the appointment of Mueller and all that that has, that has transpired since then.

“I’m not, I have confidence, humility, again a heart full of love for America,” she said.

I do not know, I’m not an expert, but when someone tells me that they have been working on something for two and a half years, and they say it three times, I take them at their word….

The media as well:

  • There was this racy headline, from Vanity Fair on Nov. 14, 2016: “Will Trump Be Impeached?”
  • Then this, yet another Vanity Fair piece, on Dec. 15, 2016: “Democrats Are Paving the Way to Impeach Donald Trump.”
  • There was this, from The New York Times, in an opinion headline from Nov. 3, 2016: “Donald Trump’s Impeachment Threat.”
  • Remember: Trump wasn’t inaugurated until Jan. 20, 2017. He wasn’t even elected president until Nov. 8, 2016.
