The Republicans have long argued that the impeachment of Donald Trump has been a goal of the Democrats from the moment that he took office – a damning accusation that would undermine practically all attempts to do so on the basis that it’s a carte-blanche plan.
This is important, of course, because Donald Trump was elected by We The People to serve as President, and should do so until such a time as he is beaten in an election, completes his second term, or is removed through the machinations of impeachment which show clear and concise wrongdoing. The idea that there is a blanket of guilt hanging over him for years on end would completely dismantle the argument that any clear or concise evidence would ever be rightfully recognized.
The Democrats have long denied that this was their intent, seeking instead to condemn President Trump on the issues of the UkraineGate conspiracy theory.
Well, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just blew that claim out of the water.
On Tuesday in Washington, D.C., at Politico’s Women Rule Summit, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitted the impeachment process of President Donald Trump has been going on for “two and a half” years.
When asked about criticisms of “the speed” of the House Democrats impeachment, Pelosi replied, “Speed? It’s been going on 22 months—two and a half years, actually.”
She continued, “I think we are not moving with speed. Was it two a half years ago they initiated the Mueller investigation? It’s not about speed. It’s about urgency. One of the charges against the president of the United States—saying he was violating the oath of office by asking for government to interfere in our election undermining the integrity of our elections.”
Impeachment remains doomed to fail in the Senate, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell indicating that his trial of President Trump will likely be “swift”.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
