Pelosi Sees Risks for Democrats Seeking Trump's Impeachment

09 May, 2018, 01:06 | Author: Israel Montgomery
  • House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says a Democratic House takeover is possible because of vulnerable Republicans in districts President Donald Trump narrowly won in 2016

The California Democrat appeared to be referring to full-page ads the Oakland Raiders - whose founder and late owner Al Davis coined the famous phrase - football team has taken out to support the Golden State Warriors as they prepared for the National Basketball Association finals.

"I do object to what they did in the dark of night to put forth something that gives 83% of the benefits to the top 1%. I don't take offense at that", she said.

While some Democrats and liberal groups have said lawmakers should move to impeach the president if they gain control, Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have urged members to focus on policy issues such as affordable health care.

And even putting aside the historical hilarity, Pelosi also manages to ignore the weeks and months of "Kill the bill, don't kill us!" hysteria from Democrats that preceded the eventual passage of the tax bill.

"That became very important to me that there'd be a woman at the table where these decisions get negotiated", she said. She says she collapsed and he fondled her while driving her to the hospital. President TrumpDonald John TrumpSessions unveils "zero tolerance" policy at southern border NY attorney general resigns after allegations of physical abuse Trump Jr. mocks Schneiderman after reports he abused women MORE has leveled personal diatribes against her while more visible party leaders, like former President Obama and Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonHow social pressures drive the partisan education gap Press: Haspel wrong choice for CIA Armed Services chair wants White House to coordinate effort against "malign foreign influence" MORE, have faded from the public stage. So there is Pelosi - on video - appearing to confirm she would try to raise taxes if Democrats win back the majority. "You have to believe. I have nine grandchildren", she said. "What kind of people are you?" She has repeatedly called business' cash bonuses directly attributed to the legislation "crumbs". She argued "we're not at that place now" and described impeachment as "divisive" and a "distraction" from Democrats' domestic agenda.

"We ask that his constituents, the public generally, and his congressional colleagues do the right thing and appropriately withhold judgment until there has been a full vetting of the facts", Glaser said. "The financial instability of American families is something that needs to be addressed".
