It’s almost comical, the amount of time Pelosi invested in pretending impeachment was never her plan.
I’m not sure what her angle was, but I think she wanted to give the appearance that Trump left her no choice. He just broke rule after rule until Democrats could no longer take it.
In fact, Pelosi plays it as if she was Trump’s biggest supporter on the left, until details of that pesky call to the Ukraine surfaced.
Tucker Carlson elaborates:
It was at that point that impeachment became entirely inevitable. As a patriotic American and a person of deep and sincere and passionate religious faith, Nancy Pelosi really had no choice at that point. The die was cast, she had to remove the president from office immediately.
So that’s Nancy Pelosi story. We don’t read minds on this show, so we can’t really tell you if it’s true or not. What we can say with absolute certainty — provable certainty — is that permanent Washington has been thinking about impeaching Donald Trump for an awfully long time. In fact, before he was even elected president, if you can imagine that, they were thinking about impeaching him.
The Obama Connection
No Trump scandal is complete without an Obama connection. This Ukraine matter is no exception. Besides the fact that Biden was Obama’s VP / BFF, there are other dots to connect.
Consider this. A woman called Evelyn Farkas was an Obama appointee at the Defense Department. She helped run the last administration’s — believe it or not — Ukraine policy.
She was also an enthusiastic booster of the Hillary Clinton for president campaign in 2016. So, two weeks before the last election, Farkas appeared at a panel discussion which, thankfully for us, was videotaped. Someone asked Farkas who she thought would win the election:
“We do have a strong system of checks and balances,” she said. “And actually, if Donald Trump were elected, I believe he’d be impeached pretty quickly or somebody else would have to take over government, and I’m not even joking.”
If Trump were ever to get elected — and of course, that’s likely not to happen, she said — he would be impeached. Now, to be completely clear, we are not alleging that Evelyn Farkas was part of a conspiracy. Conspiracy suggests secrecy, and what Farkas and the rest of the national security state did was not secret. It was never hidden. They all but bragged about it.
Trump’s Biggest Faux Pas
Democrats and Republicans have both faced losing elections many times over. So why does the left hate Trump like they do? Is it because Hillary lost? Sure, that’s a piece of it. But Hillary also lost her presidential bid in 2008. So what about Trump makes democrats spontaneously combust?
Carlson has the answer.
They hated Donald Trump from day one. I mean, yes, Donald Trump is vulgar, but that had nothing to do with why they hated him. They disagreed with Trump profoundly — and by the way, disagreed with most American voters — on the issues, particularly on the question of Russia, but also on the question of Middle Eastern wars.
But more than anything –and this is the key — they couldn’t control what Donald Trump said or did. Nobody can. And that was the unforgivable crime. So from day one, they planned to take him out.
A story in the New York Times Wednesday morning reveals every bit as much that this is just yet another pretext. It turns out that House Intel Committee Chairman, Adam Schiff knew about the whistleblower complaint before it was even filed.
But never fear, Donald Trump isn’t scared.
Just like he wasn’t scared of the Russian investigation, Stormy Daniels, or any other democrat claim for impeachment.
As Kevin Jackson pointed out:
President Donald Trump said Thursday he wants both Ukraine and China to investigate Joe Biden and his son. So the president effectively DARES Democrats to impeach him on Ukraine, then added China to the mix.
Take that, Democrats! What a boss frickin’ move by Trump.
What must Democrats be thinking? Most Republicans would have been asking for a plea bargain, and Donald Trump takes Democrats by the ears and rubs his crotch in their faces.
Trump essentially forces Democrats to back off him or make Biden their Great White Hope.
Of course, we know how this will pan out. The only question is, will Pelosi jump ship on this impeachment nonsense before it’s too late?
