Nancy Pelosi’s evolution on impeachment

I’M announcing the House of Representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi has officially announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump. This is a dramatic turnaround from the Democratic leader who has pushed off calls for impeachment for a while. So what changed? Impeachment entered the realm of possibility after the 2018 midterms, when Democrats regained control of the house and could, in theory lead the way introducing articles of impeachment when Pelosi assumed power. As Speaker of the House, she made it clear very early on that she would approach the issue with extreme caution. But again, an Pietschmann is a divisive issue in our country and let us see what the facts are, what the law is and at the time most Democrats were waiting to hear the impending results of the Muller report. If the Mulla report comes back with information, I don’t think we should impeach a president for political reasons, and I don’t think we should not impeach the president for political reasons. But you have to be ironclad in terms of your facts. As a veteran of Congress’s lower chamber Pelosi said she wanted to rely on the many already opened congressional investigations into Trump, his businesses and his campaign, but sometimes to Isis’s impeach or nothing. No, it’s not that. It’S a path that is producing results and gathering information, and she deflected comments on impeachment by calling out Trump’s actions. Instead, I think the president every day gives grounds for impeachment in terms of his obstruction of justice. Is he me but they’re a distraction which is his his master of distraction? We will all agree on that. Even as more Democrats sounded their cries for impeachment proceedings, Pelosi continued to hold back. Yes, there are some and – and the press makes more of a fuss about the 238 and the 200. Who are it’s about an investigating it’s about litigating, it’s about getting the truth to hold everyone accountable, the facts and the law. That’S what matters? Not politics, not partisanship. Just patriotism, eventually the question of impeachment, put Pelosi at odds with more progressive members of the House. We won’t proceed when we have what we need to proceed not one day sooner and everybody has the liberty and the luck to espouse their own position and to criticize me for trying to go down the path in the most determined positive way. But she still maintained her position. I said I have said what I’m going to say on the subject. That’S it. We are legislating. We are focusing on the work that we’re here to do for the American people. Pelosi change of heart comes after reports of a phone call Trump had with Ukrainian president Vladimir’s olenski Trump allegedly asked him to investigate hunter Biden, the son of former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate, Joe Biden, but Pelosi is still cautiously moving forward. The actions of the trump presidency revealed dishonorable fact of the president’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections.
