Skip to comments.Goodwin: Pelosi’s Impeachment Flip-Flop Changes Everything
Posted on 09/24/2019 9:30:18 PM PDT by Helicondelta
For months, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned itchy Democrats against the perils of impeachment. She should have stuck to her guns.
In surrendering to the radicals and the noisy drumbeat of their media handmaidens, Pelosi established a formal investigative process involving the top legislative committees.
Yet she did something else, too, something far more monumental: She effectively committed House Dems to impeaching President Trump.
Because of what she said and did, if the House doesnt go all the way, it will be a political disaster. Either failing to take a vote on articles of impeachment, or failing to get enough votes among her majority to pass any articles, would be seen as a political exoneration for Trump, likely leading to his re-election.
If all that werent risky enough, consider another scenario. If House Dems do impeach Trump on grounds that much of the public sees as flimsy and concocted, they could win the battle and lose the war. Indeed, no matter what the House does, there is a next-to-zero chance the GOP controlled Senate would convict the president absent clear and convincing high crimes and misdemeanors.
Pelosi knew all that since January, when she became Speaker, which is why she kept resisting the impeachers. But her surrender proved again that her party cant quit 2016. Like generals fighting the last war, she and they are now committed to taking their sore-loser grievances to 2020 voters.

The GET EVEN impeachment:
<><> Hillary lost (sob).
<><> $ix-figure sinecures, Cabinet appointments, multiple pensions...ALL GONE.
<><> Obamas third term....GONE.
<><> the USSC and 40 years of social justice...GONE.
<><> Dems lost power (sob).
<><> Dems cant exist without power.
The current crop of 2020 candidates are NoWheres-ville.
With another power vacuum looming, there was nothing left for Pelosi.....the Dems HAVE to impeach.
Wait until 2 or 3 million armed Trump supporters and Bikers for Trump are outside her office. There aren’t enough policemen in Washington, D.C. to handle that. Even calling in the Army won’t help. Anyone have a wheelchair van my wife and I can ride in to the festivities?
This comes at a time when Trump’s approval numbers are surging. In the last 2 weeks, his approval has gone from 47% to 53%, disapproval has gone from 53% to 45% =>
THEY ACTUALLY PUT IT IN WRITING: In the letter, they implied that US assistance to Ukraine was at stake.
Yep, it caused me to double my monthly Trump Campaign donation.
“....handmaidens, Pelosi established a formal investigative process involving the top legislative committees....”
Until there is a house vote to start a inquiry, this is all a convoluted scheme to provide cover for Biden and his druggie, worthless son.
Folks, help me raise $1,000,000 for the Trump campaign.
Yeah, strange to see Pelosi lose control of the media.
Overall their interests are the same.
If Trump can drive a wedge between them it will be monumental.
A House vote is indeed needed to do anything official.
In the media world, PR, this is significant though.
It is still similar to what the House was already doing. Nancy can still hold it back by insisting the charges need to be iron clad.(Which is a difficult standard to reach when Pure Fiction is all they have)
Yeah, the media was more than happy to oblige the rat party and their lies. Tomorrow will be more. When the released transcript comes out, it will mean nothing. Pelosi said as much. Hate these rat people. So damn dishonest.
The dims just shot themselves in all feet with 12 gauges.
Do you have a link to that tweet?
It has been revealed the Senate Democrats wrote a letter to Ukraine threatening to withhold funds if they did not help to investigate Trump. These Senators should be removed from office.
NOTHING is official, until the House VOTES on it, and the Socialists have enough votes to go forward.
Pelosi's just playing the same game that Nadler's been playing..........and their voters are too dumb to understand that.
She can flip, flop, and fly - but until she puts impeachment to a vote she ain’t got anything.
