REPORT: Pelosi’s own leadership team REBELLED against her on Trump impeachment!

The left really wants to pursue impeachment of Trump, so much so that they are now confronting Pelosi to change her position on beginning impeachment proceedings:

WASHINGTON POST – Members of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s own leadership team confronted her in a contentious Monday night meeting and argued that it was time to begin an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, according to multiple officials in the room.

At least five members of Pelosi’s leadership team — four who also sit on the House Judiciary Committee with jurisdiction over impeachment — pressed Pelosi to allow the panel to start the inquiry, which they argued would help investigators attain documents and testimony Trump has blocked.

Pelosi, according to the officials, pushed back on the idea alongside House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.), arguing that it would undercut other House investigations. Pelosi has also long been an impeachment skeptic and tried to tamp down impeachment talk in her caucus as recently as last week by encouraging members to focus on their legislative agenda.

The meeting underscores the first time Pelosi’s rank-and-file members — including members of her leadership team — have lobbied her to change her long-held position on impeachment. Judiciary members for days have discussed how to move the speaker toward their thinking, but few have been willing to break with her publicly.

The hard left doesn’t even care anymore that they are harassing Trump and they don’t care how it looks. They want to use the tool of impeachment to continue fishing in Trump’s life for whatever they can find to destroy him.



In fact, several of them are going to start calling for impeachment tomorrow morning when McGahn doesn’t show up:

However, a core group of Judiciary Democrats on Tuesday plans to begin calling for an impeachment inquiry if former White House counsel Don McGahn does not show for subpoenaed testimony at 10 a.m., according to multiple sources familiar with the plan. The White House on Monday moved to block McGahn from showing up, arguing that he is exempt from testimony.

This jives with what Chad Pergram tweeted tonight on the issue:

They really want to turn Pelosi on this and I bet she caves. After all, she’s been calling for impeachment for the last two years, starting right after Trump took office.

If Nadler can not get Mueller to come and testify, why not subpoena him. He has no [email protected]@!s to do that. He just is ready to throw subpoena to any Trump associate. Hypocrite!

I’m afraid they are going for it… there’s a meeting in the morning, then she asked to see Trump… they are going to do it. I’m sick.

I hope it backfires as badly as it did for Rs with Clinton…

It’s not fair. They are attacking him for being unhappy they were trying to frame him!

The closer the Republicans get to finding out the truth, the harder the Dems fight for impeachment. I doubt that anyone who believes it isn’t for political purposes and saving their own butts should be able to vote. This is getting ridiculous and more than a little obvious. I would be embarrassed to be a Dem right now. I certainly wouldn’t vote for one.

It seems as though Pelosi is becoming a rare breed of Democrat, a sane one,. She knows it’s going to be a disaster, but the other members don’t care. What good would that do when a 2.5 year investigation about Trump, with the power and resources of the FBI and DOJ behind it, couldn’t find squat. They think they could find something by doing this? The only thing that’ll ensure is them losing their minds on Nov 2020.

One of the clearest examples of contrast/sickness I can think of:

Obama gets elected, and he immediately gets a Nobel Prizefor doing nothing.

Trump gets elected and they immediately want to impeach him – for doing nothing wrong.

Again, there’s nothing that’s been identified that they can legally “impeach” him on. NOTHING. And they have been illegally using the power of the government, the FBI, etc. to pry, spy and harass him and have found nothing. In fact The Left’s own investigators have all but exonerated Trump from any wrong-doing. And they STILL want to keep being lawless, rabid animals about this? I hope the voters notice and overwhelmingly reelect Trump. “THAT’S RIGHT, I SAID IT!”

Goodness, Nancy….the foxes in your hen house are pretty darned riled up and clearly on drugs! Impeach, impeach, impeach. I could blame it on the full moon, but the crazies among the democrat masses far outnumber any who may have clearer heads. Usually, it is hillary who suicided people, but the entire democrat party is doing it to themselves. For quite awhile, it truly looks as if the demonrats realize they have NO one who can beat Trump in 2020, so their best (if not insane) course of action is impeachment….on what grounds, exactly? All of the evidence of crimes points straight back to demonrats!

It is too late to stop the ball from dropping on the heads of those in the obama administration who broke laws and destroyed the trust of the American people, so their attempt to portray Trump as worse falls short.

Oh well, popcorn’s a-poppin!

Posters on this and other sites keep saying that the Ds can’t impeach because there’s nothing to impeach Trump for, but we’re talking about zealots. They don’t need a persuasive reason; they’re running on their spectacular hatred of the man who is trying to protect the US from their destructive insanity. They don’t need a reason, period. They’ll impeach him because Trump. And when they initiate proceedings, EVERY D in the house will vote in favor of it. Then posters on these sites will say that the R-controlled Senate won’t vote him out of office. What, with all those RINOs? With the treacherous McConnell in charge? What will happen if every D and a group of RINOs vote to remove him from office? How do you know they won’t? The RINOs will risk being voted out of office themselves, yes–but they’re all crooked millionaires. Maybe it would be worth it… Read more »

The strategy for Trump is to slowly expose the demonrats, one crime and one demonrat at a time, then blow the lid off sometime in 2020, closer to the elections. This politics game requires timing and, so far, Trump is pretty good at playing. Those who have been in the game a long time have become slackers.

Couple things:
1) “Impeachment” is just the name for a trial in the senate. Impeachment does not equal removal. Trump can be impeached, and cleared. This would be devastating to House Democrats, who seem to be operating under the assumption that Trump can be impeached and that means he’s out of office.

2) To convict upon impeachment requires a super-majority vote in the senate. D/RINOs don’t have 66+1 votes, not even close.

I would love it if you were right. But the left has a stranglehold on communications. And the law is nothing against these mad dogs. They don’t even have a reason to hate Trump–everything they say about him is a lie. They’re fanatics of nothing, yet they’ll never stop coming at him. At us. And I truly believe there are enough traitors in the Senate to vote with the Ds against the President.

Isn’t that what McConnell wants? Will those crooked squishes stand up to him in the end?

Actually they can impeach him for “high crimes and misdemeanors”. Impeachment is permissible for “misdemeanors” like things like abusing the public trust, conduct unbecoming a president, and so on. Now that won’t carry much weight with the public, and it is especially hypocritical coming from the Dems, of whom many are stealing from the public.

I wonder if they could even get it through the House.
