For the past few months, the Democrats have been chomping at the bit for a chance to impeach President Trump.
And while a substantial number of representatives in the House believe there’s more than enough evidence to go off of for impeachment, Pelosi has demurred and insisted that the average American doesn’t want Trump impeached and it’d backfire if they tried.
That being said, Nancy Pelosi believes she’s found the smoking gun that’ll finish off Trump.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you know that at the end of last week President Trump admitted to having conversations with Ukrainian officials.
The details of those conversations are unknown at the present, but a whistleblower says Trump may have asked Ukrainian officials to launch an investigation into the Biden family.
It’s believed that Biden’s son, Hunter, may have arranged a shady business deal with a natural gas company called Burisma Holdings.
And now with this all out in the open, Pelosi has reason to believe that this call that Trump had could be looked at in a criminal manner.
And so she wants to address it so that she can see if this is something for which she can finally impeach Trump over.
In a letter written to fellow members of Congress about Trump’s phone conversation, Pelosi said [the call with a foreign leader] “must be addressed immediately.”
She also warned of a “new stage of investigation” if Trump’s administration decided to block the whistleblower who brought the phone call to the attention of media.
“This violation is about our national security. The Inspector General determined that the matter is ‘urgent’ and therefore we face an emergency that must be addressed immediately,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to members of Congress released Sunday.
“If the Administration persists in blocking this whistleblower from disclosing to Congress a serious possible breach of constitutional duties by the president, they will be entering a grave new chapter of lawlessness which will take us into a whole new stage of investigation.”
For his part, Trump doesn’t seem all that concerned that what he did will come back to harm him.
In fact, he’s already said he’s entertaining the notion of releasing the transcript of the call which would obviously clear up any worries that something underhanded was taking place.
Should Trump be worried?
If the transcript contains details of Trump insinuating he wants the Ukrainian government to investigate the Bidens because it could benefit Trump, then yes.
If, on the other hand, President Trump provided a reasonable request for justice to be served where the United States has no jurisdiction, then no.
The number one thing he should be concerned about is this: The Democrats are desperate to have Trump removed.
And if they believe this gives them another arrow in their quiver, they’ll use it to aim at Trump to take him out.
Keep in mind that even Adam Schiff, House Intelligence Committee Chairman, who’s been cautious about advocating for impeachment said “that if allegations over Trump reaching out to Ukraine are true, impeachment ‘may be the only remedy.’”
