• Pelosi’s All-In – Exposing the Hypocrisy of the Dems on Impeachment

    Surge Summary: Some Democrats’ enthusiasm for impeaching Donald Trump contradicts their general attitude toward impeachment of not so long ago.

    by Gary Bauer

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi addressed reporters in the Capitol this morning at 9:00 AM.  To no one’s surprise, Pelosi declared that she was all in on impeaching President Donald Trump.  After warning that our “democracy was at stake,” Pelosi ordered Jerry Nadler “to proceed with articles of impeachment.”

    What a sham and what a scam.  (This is a good time to make the most generous donation you can to help American Values fight impeachment!)

    Democrats simply have not made the case for impeachment.  Polls show independent voters are increasingly turned off by the left’s Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    All the left is accomplishing at this point is to further exacerbate the political divisions tearing America apart.  That flies in the face of everything leading Democrats have said in the past about impeachment, which is the political equivalent of capital punishment.

    For example, in 1998 one leading Democrat said this:

    “We must not overturn an election and remove a president from office . . . without an overwhelming consensus of the American people. There must never be a narrowly-voted impeachment or an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by the other.”

    That was Jerry Nadler, the man now leading the charge to remove a president without the overwhelming consensus of the American people.  But 1998 is ancient history.  Here’s something more recent:

    “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”

    That was Speaker Nancy Pelosi just eight months ago.  But there is nothing “compelling and overwhelming” about this impeachment effort.  It is all based on conjecture, opinions and hearsay.

    And it certainly isn’t bipartisan.  In fact, the only bipartisan aspect of this impeachment effort is the opposition to it.  No Republican supported the House impeachment resolution and two Democrats voted against it.  As Rep. Kevin McCarthy correctly pointed out, Pelosi isn’t even meeting her own standards.

    Meanwhile, in spite of Pelosi’s declaration this morning, there is growing division within the Democrat caucus about how to proceed.
