Awe, Poor Pelosi: Couldn't Even Show Her Face After The Impeachment Hearing Ended
It seems like Nancy Pelosi just vanished after the impeachment hearing. The fact that the winded Dem didn't hang out to gloat just goes to show how poorly this whole thing is going for them.
Funny enough, even if she wanted to pull the breaks on this, she couldn't. It would destroy her party from the inside out.
The folks at RedState also notice Pelosi had cut tail and run right after the hearing. Here is what they noticed:
"No matter how the Democrats try to spin it, the first day of public hearings did not go well for them. From Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) powerful opening statement, to the brutal cross-examinations of Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), John Ratcliffe (R-TX) and other Republicans, the weakness, the partisan nature and yes, even the frivolity of their case against the President was exposed. The ultimate indicator that the day had been a bust for Democrats was the absence of a press conference from their fearless leader, Nancy Pelosi. Where was Madame Speaker after the hearing?
Pelosi issued a brief statement to CNN. She said, “What has come forth has further, of course, given us the truth of what happened at the time.” She told CNN she was “consumed with other legislative matters — prescription drugs, Dreamers, appropriations and the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement today,” but that she had “caught a few minutes” of the beginning of the hearing.
Now, impeachment is a relatively rare and deadly serious action for Congress to take. Generally, one wouldn’t expect the Speaker of the House to be consumed with other matters on the first day of public hearings. Pelosi knows it did not go well. And it will likely get worse."
Oh, it for sure will get worse and once this thing blows up there will be no hiding. My hope is that it's a wakeup call for House Dems and Schiff and Pelosi are forced to step down. We can hope a separate investigation into their actions ensues but I wouldn't hold my breath!
