On Wednesday night, CNN's Chris Cuomo asked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi a (seemingly) simple question:
Why don't you support the idea, put forward by some of your Democratic colleagues, to impeach President Donald Trump if your party retakes the House in the fall?
This is her answer:
"Well, first of all, let me just say, our founders gave us our guidance. They said E Pluribus Unum, from many, one. They couldn't possibly have imagined how many we would be or how different we would be, but they knew that we had to be one.
"I have hesitated to use impeachment. People wanted me to impeach President (George W.) Bush for going into Iraq. And they impeached President (Bill) Clinton. We -- I -- there is an investigation. If it takes its course, let it take its course. But I do not think that impeachment is a policy agenda.
"What I'd rather talk about is, if people have an unease about government and the rest, is an agenda we put forth on Monday, which is our agenda to save our democracy, which is about reducing the role of money in politics, which changes the revolving door of lobbyists coming in and out of government, which has something that says to -- to people, if you think that your voice is not as heard as well as the voice of others, then we have to satisfy your concern and change the system.
"So let's focus on things like that, that I think are unifying for the American people. Impeachment is, to me, divisive.
If you weren't counting, that's 279 total words -- ranging from the founding fathers through President George W. Bush and landing on unity. What a run!

Absolute gibberish. As usual.
just say “I hate Trump”. thats a good enough reason for leftards
If she thought impeachment was a winning strategy in November she’d be shouting for it five times louder than Maxine Waters. Obviously, her internal polling has told her that it’s a loser.
Who did he think he was? President and commander in chief?
A better question would have been what issues are the RATs
Because the only colleague that is positing that goofy idea is a goofy black racist in a James Brown wig.
“Because even I, stupid and demented as I am, know it’s a losing idea”.
Use the Zuckerberg standard reply to a hard question;
“Hmmm....My Team will get back to you on this asap!”
Typical politician ramble, covering all the bases.
In short: “We don’t have a legitimate basis for impeachment, but are hoping the “investigation” will provide some kind of pretext. In the meantime, we’ll direct our ad hominem attacks on the President to create momentum in our perpetually roiled voter base.”
Actually it’s one of the most coherent things SanFranNan has ever said. It’s BS cover for the fact that impeachment will turn off middle of the road voters though.
There she goes again. Get her some Paxil.
She looks like Reverend Cleophus.
I’m beginning to understand why the upper echelon of democrats do not want impeachment as one of the themes this coming election. They know now that Trump knows inside out of the Plot to discredit him. Every month something leaks that shines a bright light on the misdeeds of FBI/CIA/DOJ that the democrats don’t like because those misdeeds boomerang right on top of them.
Given her IQ, I'm impressed she was able to memorize that little response. I wonder what other Latin she knows? LOL. I'm not convinced she can read English. She didn't get that quote from "Hooked on Phonix".
Nancy is speaking in Latin. That’s either racist or she is possessed by evil spirits. I say she be immediately exorcisized.
I have no idea what she said
You have to pass the articles impeachment so you can find out what’s in them?
