House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was pressed about the calls from her party for President Trump‘s impeachment, something she had previously expressed caution on. At a CNN Town Hall, Chris Cuomo invoked a recent poll showing that more than 70% of Democrats want the president impeached and asked her why she wasn’t exactly onboard. Pelosi began by explaining that she prioritizes “what is unifying for our country” and that she was “hesitant” when there were calls to impeach President George W. Bush for getting the U.S. involved in the Iraq War. “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,” Pelosi said. The former Speaker urged voters should be more focused on other aspects of the Democratic agenda like their recent push to rid big money out of politics. “Impeachment is, to me, divisive,” Pelosi continued. “Again, if the facts are … [Read more...] about Nancy Pelosi at CNN Town Hall: If Only Democrats Impeach Trump, ‘It Will Divide The Country’
The first participant at CNN’s Town Hall with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi opened with a direct question: where’s the evidence of Russian collusion? “If Trump actually colluded with the Russians, why isn’t he found guilty of it after a year of investigation?” Joshua Gonzalez, a law student at Georgetown University, asked the Democrat. “Wouldn’t there be some kind of concrete proof by now?” “Well you know there is an investigation going on under counsel [Robert] Mueller,” Pelosi replied. “And that is where — we wouldn’t have any idea what is going on in that, and nor should we know what’s going on in that investigation.” “But it takes time, and I trust counsel Mueller and his work,” she added. CNN’s Chris Cuomo, hosting the town hall, asked if Pelosi thought Mueller should release his findings before the midterm elections so that voters could make their decisions based on … [Read more...] about CNN Town Hall Questioner Challenges Nancy Pelosi: Shouldn’t There Be Proof of Russia Collusion by Now?
President Donald Trump railed against Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in his speech at a pro-life gala on Tuesday night, claiming the House Minority Leader supports violent gang MS-13. Trump took a number of shots at Democrats at the Susan B. Anthony Campaign for Life Gala, claiming that if the Democratic party came into power they would “try to put up the taxes, so many things, open those borders.” “They don’t want walls, they don’t want other people stopping,” Trump said. ” And the other day, just the other day, Nancy Pelosi came out in favor of MS-13.” “That’s the first time I’ve heard that,” Trump continued. “She wants them to be treated with respect, as do other Democrats. That’s not going to be happening.” Trump sparked a controversy last week when he referred to members of the gang as “animals,” a remark that was misconstrued by some in the media as referring to all immigrants. … [Read more...] about Trump at Pro-Life Gala: ‘Nancy Pelosi Came Out in Favor of MS-13’
Sometimes the news can feel like a perpetual tire fire, with people in the executive branch getting fired left and right, but one thing remains true: Special Counsel Robert Mueller is in charge of an investigation into Russian election interference and alleged collusion involving the Trump campaign. Donald Trump hasn’t canned Mueller, although the president is constantly griping about the probe. So why did the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee use this misleading “Mueller FIRED” subject line in a fundraising email? DCCC needs to stop sending out emails with fake news as the subject line pic.twitter.com/0E6cTeY6kX — eve peyser (@evepeyser) April 16, 2018 Even the body of the email didn’t say Mueller was fired: Just that Trump was close to firing Mueller. “I’m so furious I can barely write this email,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California, 12th District) in the email released Friday, according to … [Read more...] about Nancy Pelosi and Dems Fundraised with False ‘Mueller FIRED’ Email
Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace grilled House Democratic Caucus chairman Joe Crowley (D—NY) on rumors he could run for the House minority leader position if Democrats flip the House in 2018, replacing Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D—CA) should he win the race. Wallace brought up how Republicans have run ads going after Pelosi––even a recent Democratic winner distanced himself from her––and asked Crowley, “Is Nancy Pelosi a liability for Democrats in this campaign?” Crowley pushed back on Wallace’s repeated questions about Pelosi being a liability to her party, and said he most likely would not attempt to unseat the longtime Democratic leader. “If Nancy Pelosi stays, I don’t see a scenario by which I would challenge her for that position,” he said on Sunday. “I’m focused right now on winning back the House of Representatives.” “It’s the focus and goal of the entire Democratic leadership,” … [Read more...] about Chris Wallace Grills Top Democratic Rep.: ‘Is Nancy Pelosi a Liability’ in Midterms?
