House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to place a timeline on the phony impeachment inquiry process when a reporter asked her if it would conclude prior to the 2020 election in order to create a level playing field for candidates.
Regarding a timeframe, Pelosi gave the joke of a statement that “the timeline will depend on the truth line.”
She was asked by the reporter why not allow American voters to decide whether Trump stays in office in 2020, Pelosi said, “I keep saying to people, impeachment is about the truth and the Constitution of the United States.”
“Any other issues that you have, disapproving of the way the president has dealt with Syria, whatever the subject is, reluctance, the cowardice to do something about gun violence, the cruelty of not wanting to help our Dreamers and transgender people, the denial about the climate crisis that we face, the list goes on, that’s about the election.”
“That has nothing to do with what is happening in terms of our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution and the facts that might support. And we don’t know where this path will take us, it could take us down further path but the two are completely separate.”
The reporter then asked about voters again.
Pelosi said in the press conference that “they already decided that in the last election,” insisting that voters are “not going to decide.”
She then said again, impeachment is not about politics, it’s about “patriotism,” and she said she’s “very proud” of the way Adam Schiff is proceeding (lying and scheming) with the House intelligence committee’s impeachment inquiry.
On Tuesday, she told reporters that the House “will not be having a vote” on holding a formal impeachment inquiry.
President Trump, Congressional Republicans, and the American people have all laid criticism on Democrats over the bogus impeachment inquiry, labeling the Dems efforts as illegitimate and a way to cheat the voters out of a duly elected president.
In the press conference, she also took a moment to offer a eulogy to Rep. Elijah Cummings after his passing on Thursday morning.
Cummings’s committee is one of three conducting the House impeachment probe of Trump and is also authorized to investigate virtually any part of the federal government. Cummings was among the three chairmen to sign a letter seeking documents into the formal inquiry about Trump.
The committees have issued subpoenas of witnesses. The Trump administration said it will not cooperate with the illegal impeachment probe, saying the House needs to vote first to make it legitimate.
Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a veteran House Democrat from New York, will for now take over leadership of the House oversight committee, according to several news reports.
Democrats behavior and blatant disregard for the people – who they are supposed to serve – and what they want is troubling. What they fail to see however, is that this behavior is not going unseen.
Even longtime Democrats are switching teams now, tired of the endless investigations with no actual work done by the Dems in office.
Pelosi said the voters won’t decide on Trump’s impeachment, but they sure as hell will decide whether or not to keep these do nothing Democrats in office, and they may just be brewing up their own defeat.
