Once again, the democrats are fumbling their way into the weekend as news of dissent among the ranks grows louder.
The party itself seems ready to tear itself apart, somehow even more profoundly than it did after 2016’s primary rigging by Hillary Clinton. Today, the issue is the impeachment of President Trump, something that the House leadership team has been unflinchingly opposed to. Nancy Pelosi, in particular, has been a staunch anti-impeachment voice, urging her minions to stave off their wanton desires until such a time as she and only she gives them the green light.
After news broke that now more than half of the House democrats are in favor of impeachment, Pelosi was again scrambling to maintain order.
“The Mueller report and his testimony last week confirmed that the President’s campaign welcomed Russian interference in the election, and laid out ten instances of the President’s obstruction of justice,” she said. “To protect our democracy and our Constitution, Democrats in the Congress continue to legislate, investigate and litigate. … In America, no one is above the law. The President will be held accountable.”
Motions to impeach President Trump have made it to the House floor on numerous occasions, being enthusiastically stuck down at each and every turn.
Pelosi and others believe that further investigation will be required, possibly into Trump’s civilian life and taxes, before Congress can come to a conclusive decision to move forward on impeachment.
