Nancy Pelosi thought she had Donald Trump cornered.
But then the tide turned against her.
And it’s all because Nancy Pelosi stood in front of the camera and confessed to this giant error.
At her weekly press conference, Pelosi launched into a hysterical tirade over a letter from White House counsel Pat Cipollone informing the Democrats that the White House rejected all of their subpoena requests because they served no legitimate oversight purpose.
Democrats were trying to cloak their intentions to impeach the President under the guise of “constitutional oversight.”
But that was a farce.
Democrats pursuit of Donald Trump’s private financial records serve no legitimate Congressional function.
And even Nancy Pelosi undercut the argument that the Democrats were conducting legitimate oversight.
“Let me just say this: The letter that came from the White House yesterday was completely outrageous,” Pelosi began in her weekly press conference.
“It was totally outrageous. It says the president is above the law and Congress has no right to investigate any of the actions of the president, to hold him accountable in any way,” the Speaker continued.
But as Pelosi worked herself up into a rage, she let it slip that the Democrats investigations were all about impeaching Donald Trump.
“When they are saying unless you have a legislative purpose, you cannot ask any questions. You cannot investigate unless you have a legislative purpose. But one of the purposes that the Constitution spells out for investigation is impeachment,” Pelosi stated.
“So you can say, and of course with respect, if you said, we need this information to carry out our oversight responsibilities, and among them is impeachment. It doesn’t mean you’re going on the impeachment path, but it means if you had the information, you might.”
“We hope they would respect their oath of office and the separation of powers, and that they would respond to requests for information. That might be ratcheted up to subpoenaed for information, but just to say that that letter came from the White House was a joke, beneath the dignity of the presidency of the United States, and in defiance of our constitution, shame on them,” Pelosi concluded.
Donald Trump deemed all these investigations and document requests as “Presidential harassment.”
And after Pelosi’s performance, it’s hard to disagree with that assessment.
Pelosi flat out admitted that the Democrats aren’t looking to see if there are gaps in existing law or if the executive branch is complying with the law.
They want their hands on Donald Trump’s bank statements and tax returns because they believe they can dig up embarrassing dirt and impeach President Trump.
It is no more complicated than that.
And thanks to Pelosi’s inability to control her hate of President Trump, it’s now all out in the open.
