Nancy Pelosi Charges Forward With Impeachment But It Looks Like There's Trouble In Paradise
House Speaker and all-around moonbat, Nancy Pelosi, has sounded off the battle cry to charge forward with the impeachment voting process. She's done so knowing that several of her comrades are still not on-boarded but it seems she plans to drag it out until she can convince them,
Talk about a gross abuse of one's position...
According to FoxNews, during her televised remarks about impeachment on Thursday Pelosi did not suggest any particular timeline for a vote, saying only, "We will proceed in a manner worthy of our oath of office."
The timing of such a vote could be indicative of whether Pelosi has enough Democrats to vote to impeach: Pelosi is a master at reading her caucus. If she has the votes, she’ll likely give the green light to impeach on the floor. If she doesn’t have the votes, impeachment could wait -- conceivably until the New Year.
A major milepost, though, could come at 5 p.m. Friday: Democrats have said the Trump administration has until the close of business to decide if it will cooperate with the investigation or try to defend the president. If the administration says it’s willing to play, then impeachment could stretch out a bit. If not, Democrats may operate under a compressed timeframe.
Meaning, Pelosi is going to try and drag it out until she can convince her fellow Democrats to move forward on a vote. Not being prepared by your court date would generally lead to a mistrial for the average person but this is politics.
Pelosi is hanging her hat on the hopes that she and Adam Schiff can sway the few level-headed Dems to vote in their favor. She may be in for a rude awaking because those against an impeachment trial are fairly adamant.
Let's hope they stay that way...
"This is a hard vote to make one way or the other," Rep. Jeff Van Drew, D-N.J., who opposed the inquiry before it began and remains skeptical of the impeachment efforts, told reporters Thursday.
The President is fiercely out-numbered:
A simple majority -- 216 of 431 members -- is needed to impeach. There are 233 Democrats, meaning that presuming anti-Trump independent Rep. Justin Amash backs impeachment, Democrats can lose 18 of their own and still impeach the president
A member of Pelosi’s leadership team told Fox News this week that the backlog of bills up this month in the House “works against” a December impeachment vote, explaining that impeachment “doesn’t fit the holiday spirit.”
There is some hope, however:
Van Drew was one of just two Democrats who opposed the inquiry, alongside Minnesota's Collin Peterson, but Republicans are hoping that the 31 Democrats from districts that supported Trump in 2016 could be the key to defeating the impeachment effort.
The Republican National Committee sew the flaw in Pelosi's efforts and have begun running ads to urge taxpayers to vote for Reps who won't waste their hard-earned money. It's a move to rally the support of voters who see the injustice being done.
After all, this is at best is an impeachment vote based on hearsay and second-hand information, without any solid evidence. but the RNC knows it's still a wild card. Innocent people are convicted all of the time so it's wise of them to get the word out there and remind the public what exactly is going on. Especially because the mainstream media keeps blasting said hearsay as gospel.
In the end, it will come down to integrity. Either, Representatives will vote for Trump in the name of justice and on behalf of their voters or they'll go with Pelosi's half-cooked scheme to impeach.
At this time it would be foolish to discount what Democrats are capable of, even without the evidence. Especially with their leadership foaming at the mouth to get Trump out of office- breathing down their necks.
