Democrats are eyeing the 2018 midterms as their first step towards removing Donald Trump from office.
If they win control of Congress, Democrats will be chomping at the bit to investigate the President.
And now Nancy Pelosi just revealed this dark secret about her plans to impeach Trump.
Liberals were furious when they found out Pelosi was trying to clamp down any impeachment talks.
She believes it will alienate swing voters and motivate Republicans to turn out if they believe their President’s fate hangs in the balance.
“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi offered a forced smile recently when asked on MSNBC about a Tom Steyer-sponsored ad that calls for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
“That’s a great ad,” Pelosi said twice, before rushing to plug the Democrats’ Better Deal economic agenda as the TV hit wrapped up.
Pelosi played it off, but privately she was peeved. She told lawmakers at a Democratic leadership meeting soon after that she had reached out to the Democratic megadonor to tell him that his $10 million ad campaign is a distraction. (A source close to Steyer said he hasn’t spoken with Pelosi since the ad launched.)
Pelosi is eager to show her party can govern — in contrast to the chaos surrounding Trump — and she believes that a reputation as the “no drama” Democrats is key to taking back the House in 2018 and whisking her backing into the speaker’s chair.
While not an official slogan, Pelosi has discussed the strategy broadly in recent leadership and caucus meetings, urging members to avoid talk of impeachment and resist taking Trump’s bait on whatever topic is dominating his Twitter feed that day.
“There’s nothing any of us can say in Congress that is going to change people’s view of Donald Trump,” said freshman Rep. Ro Khanna, a Silicon Valley progressive who agrees with Pelosi’s strategy. “What they need is us to help them form their view of whether the Democratic Party is ready to lead.”
Pelosi and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland both issued cautious statements Monday after former Trump campaign aides were indicted in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. The House Democratic leaders reiterated their calls for an independent commission while carefully avoiding any speculation about Trump’s potential collusion with Moscow in the 2016 campaign.”
While Pelosi may be trying to slow play impeachment talks, conservatives do believe the Democrats will go pedal to the metal on removing Trump should they win back Congress.
Democrats in the House have already introduced articles of impeachment and Democrat base voters believe if they hand control of Congress to Pelosi and Schumer, impeachment is on the table.
Would the Democrats really betray their base?
History shows that unlike establishment Republicans, Democrat politicians follow through on their word.
Do you believe Pelosi when she tries to quiet talks of impeachment?
Or do you think she secretly wants to remove Trump from office by any means necessary?
