Pelosi pushes impeachment, says Trump supporters have bad judgment

PelosiWhile speaking at the National Press Club on Monday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said a case is being made for Pres. Donald Trump’s impeachment in a “very scientific, methodical way” and slammed the president’s supporters as not having very good judgment.

“The case is being made about the emoluments clause and you have to have evidence and the rest, but the case has not fully been made. The fact is that when I was speaker after we won in ’06 — in ’07 people wanted me to impeach President Bush because of the war in Iraq. I never recovered with the left on this subject for not impeaching President Bush because of the war in Iraq. You don’t impeach somebody because you don’t like their policies. When they break the law, that’s when you have grounds for impeachment. And at the time of the war, I said, as a top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, ‘The intelligence does not support the threat,’ and so did Senator Bob Graham,” she said.

“But the administration was making this strong case with the American people. And perhaps misrepresenting the American people could be a cause for impeachment,” she added. “If so, there’s plenty of grounds right now with the current president, but it just isn’t the case. That doesn’t mean nobody is listening to cases that are being made in a very scientific, methodical way as to whether there are grounds for an impeachment. But the fact is that we’re trying to unite the country. Many of the President’s supporters are just not ready to accept the fact that their judgment might not have been so great in voting for him. And by the time the case is made, perhaps they’ll be ready to accept that. It’s very hard, impeachment. It’s very hard.”
