‘I’m Done With Him’: Pelosi Talks Dems Impeachment Plans

9

In the months since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., assumed her role, there’s one subject she can never seem to avoid being asked about: President Donald Trump. But on Thursday night, she said she’s over it.

“I’m done with him, in terms of talking about him,” Pelosi told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on his ABC show. “What we want to talk about is, let’s build the infrastructure of America and not have him stomp out of the room.”

Pelosi and the president have been engaged in an ongoing feud that reached a boiling point last week after the speaker publicly accused Trump of engaging in a “coverup.” In response, Trump stormed out of a planned meeting intended to discuss a $2 trillion infrastructure package after only three minutes, choosing instead to rail against Democrats and their “phony investigations” at an impromptu news conference in the Rose Garden.

Kimmel, however, appeared to be much more interested in keeping the focus of his sit-down with Pelosi on Trump. The host and vocal critic of the president kicked off the 14-minute segment pressing Pelosi on impeachment in the wake of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s recent suggestion that only Congress could “formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing.” Despite facing intensifying calls for impeachment from members of her own party, Pelosi has repeatedly made efforts to tamp down the talk and resisted making decisive moves toward that step.

“We need you to get in there and to take care of this,” a passionate Kimmel said at one point during the interview.

“Let me just say this immodestly, I probably have a better idea as to what the president has to be held accountable for than anyone,” Pelosi responded. She later added, “The only person who knows better than I why this president is not above the law, why this president must be held accountable, the only person who knows better than I do is the president of the United States. He knows. He knows what his violations have been.”

The challenge, Pelosi said, would be convincing the Republicans in Senate, who are “completely in the pocket of Donald Trump.”

She again asserted her belief that this may be the reason Trump wants to be impeached.

“He knows it’s not a good idea to be impeached, but the silver lining for him is then he believes he would be exonerated by the United States Senate, and there’s a school of thought that says if the Senate acquits you, why bring charges against him in the private sector when he’s no longer president?”

She continued: “When we go there with our case, it’s gotta be ironclad.”

As Pelosi repeatedly stressed the necessity of being “as ready as you can possibly be” before taking on impeachment, Kimmel only had one question.

“Will we be ready before the year 2020?” he asked.

“Yeah, we will,” Pelosi responded with a laugh.

  1. Well guess what, Mrs. Plastic? We’re done with you. You don’t represent America. You are constantly voted in to Congress in a little district in California where you live with your multi million dollar husband. The 10 people who vote for you in your little district does NOT in any way represent the entire population of the United States.

  2. President Trump wanted to discuss infrastructure. Why did you have him come for nothing?
    PELOSI, YOU’RE DONE! As soon as the arrests begin, criminals like you and your Pelosi Crime Family will surely be one of the first to go. Pelosi, how many more days do you think you have?

  3. She’s made of plastic or wax? She seems like an ancient figurine out of a wax museum that has remodeled and removed the old, irrelevant figures and placed them in the Congressional rotunda for posterity!

  4. Rabbosai, we yidden should keep our political opinions to ourselves and our profile low. Don’t forget we are in Golus, history has shown us time and again that when we begin feeling too heimish in the way we act and talk, things start unraveling quite rapidly.

    • Excellent point. Just be contrite and enter the cattle car. Showers will be available upon arrival. Don’t resist or there will be trouble. Behave. Just go quietly like sheep.

  5. So she basically means that they have been wanting to bring charges against Trump, and impeach him from the start, but they had no case for it. Only when they so, will they bring it. So if after 2 years hey haven’t found anything, they are going to keep digging until they do.

  6. The Dems involved in all the BS need to be tried for treason. From the start they have tried to undermine the government and the president for there own personal gain to overthrow the government.

  7. Pelosi, was it a free speech when you addressed to the Antifa crowd: ” disrupt disrupters ” and inspired the violence in the universities and colleges campuses of California?
