House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) suggested that President Trump follow in the historical footsteps of President Richard Nixon and resign from office. It was a statement shockingly unworthy of the office she holds. It also speaks volumes for the self-inflicted dilemma the Democrats find themselves in after they started pushing for impeachment three years ago, before Trump was even inaugurated into the Office of the President, and they still don’t have anything to show for it except a history of unfair practices, Constitutional violations, and criminal leaking and perjury from their own ranks.
There’s something wrong with this woman. She’s usually far more effective in political warfare. This time, however, she’s letting the cat out of the bag by exposing the Democrat agenda not being about upholding the Constitution, but “get rid of Trump by any means.” In this case, she knows he will not be removed from office based on what we’re seeing in the impeachment hearings. She may not even get an impeachment vote, as there are 30 Democrats who are up for reelection in Trump-won districts. So, she went on TV to act like what the president did was so wrong that he should just resign rather than put the country through an impeachment trial. Hogwash! Any other president would have caved by now.
During an interview on CBS, Margaret Brennan asked Pelosi whether the president would “get to confront his accuser,” when Pelosi trotted out the Nixon garbage. Pelosi evaded the question, as she usually does, going into a grandma-like hissy fit, “What do you mean confront his accuser? Confront the whistleblower?”
“Presumably, that’s what he means,” Ms. Brennan replied.
“Well,” Mrs. Pelosi huffed, “I will make sure he does not intimidate the whistleblower.”
So, there you have it. The American idea that the accused may face their accuser is considered intimidating a witness, according to Battle-Axe Nancy.
Trump wasn’t asking to intimidate the so-called whistleblower, rather, he was pointing out that Pelosi and the Democrats have started an impeachment inquiry against him on the hearsay evidence of a whistleblower who did not follow the whistleblower statute, and who was coached and urged to file the complaint by Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), the liar-in-chief on all things impeachment, and he’s not able to confront him directly, because the Democrats have simply made up that a whistleblower has anonymity protections. Millions of Americans would agree with the president on this one, and thus, Pelosi fought back with a stupid statement.
Pelosi said to Brennan that the president could come before the committee and talk. Well, isn’t that nice, but that’s not what Trump asked about. He wants to confront his accuser, a right that symbolizes the idea of American jurisprudence, where the accused gets to question their accuser in front of witnesses.
Pelosi said the president can “speak all the truth that he wants,” more-than-likely in the hopes of setting a perjury trap. Brennan responded, “You don’t expect him to do that?”
Pelosi replied, “If he wants to take the oath of office… a really sad thing,” she said. “I mean,” the Speaker said on live television, “what the president did was so much worse than even what Richard Nixon did.”
Meanwhile, the president hasn’t done anything the Democrats have accused him of doing. They put Trump, and the entire country, through hell for three years with the Russian collusion nonsense that in the end came out to be a giant nothing-burger. They then waited all of two hours after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s devastating testimony that revealed what he already published in his report, that there was no collusion by Trump or his campaign, to start the next phase of their attacks on a duly-elected president over the Ukraine telephone call, to begin an impeachment inquiry where America has been able to read the transcript of the call that doesn’t show anything in it that the Democrats want you to believe is there.
From The Sun:
Given that the House hasn’t yet said what Mr. Trump did, that struck us as a bit rich. “At some point,” she said, “Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue.” It was plainly a backhanded — that’s the Pelosi method — way of suggesting Mr. Trump resign the presidency — and an extraordinary thing to be done on live television or any other venue.
Amazing, actually. For our part, we opposed Nixon’s resignation at the time and ever since. It was outrageous for Senators Goldwater and Scott to go over to the White House and, in effect, urge the president to resign. The House hadn’t even voted out articles of impeachment (the Judiciary Committee had but the House hadn’t). And the Senate hadn’t had a chance to properly weigh even a particle of evidence.
In the case of President Trump, though, no committee of the House, let alone the House itself, has voted out a single charge. When Ms. Brennan asked the Speaker whether “bribery” would be one of the charges, Mrs. Pelosi retorted, “I have no idea.” Then she said: “Well, there’s not even a decision made to impeach the president. This is a finding of fact, unfolding of the truth. And then a decision will be made.”
In the end, we have the Speaker going on national television to suggest that President Trump resign from office without ever telling us he is likely to be impeached or even what charges they could file against him, because at this point even they don’t know after the disastrous witness testimony so far. It’s been nothing but a show trial in an effort to overturn the 2016 election and to damage this president so badly that he doesn’t get reelected in 2020. It’s the largest election interference scam in our nation’s history, and I hope to God that the American people punish the Democrat Party in the 2020 election so as to remove all power by rewarding the GOP with the House, the Senate, and the White House, so that the message will finally get through that the American people will not tolerate such behavior by an entire political party in their pursuit of power to the point where they make up false charges and rig the rules so that no adequate defense can be made. What the Democrats have been doing in their impeachment inquiry is wholly un-American.
