House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made it clear that she and her fellow Democrats are blinded by rage and are willing to fulfill their personal desires above all else.
During a tirade on a CBS News segment, Pelosi said to Margaret Brennan that President Trump as far as Dems are concerned, is guilty until proven innocent, the exact opposite of the presumption of innocence which are criminal justice system is based off of.
Pelosi, who made the remarks on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” made similar remarks last week while responding to a reporter’s question about the public believing that Democrats are “dead set” on impeaching Trump without looking at all the facts.
“It’s called an inquiry,” Pelosi said on Thursday. “And if the president has something that is exculpatory, Mr. President, that means you have anything that shows your innocence, then he should make that known and that’s part of the inquiry. And so far, we haven’t seen that, but we welcome it. And that’s what an inquiry’s about.”
Pelosi then repeated that sentiment on Sunday in response to Brennan asking her, “Do you think you’ll go through all of this and not vote to impeach the President?”
“That remains – the facts, if the President has information that demonstrates his innocence in all of this, which we haven’t seen,” Pelosi responded.
“His transcript of a phone call is tucked away in a highly sensitive, compartmentalized intelligence server so we can’t see that. If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpa, blame, then we look forward to seeing it.”
Partial transcript from Pelosi’s interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation”:
MARGARET BRENNAN: When you tweeted today, you said Ambassador Yovanovitch was viciously smeared by Trump allies, removed from her post and then threatened by the President. What part of that amounts to an impeachable offense or a crime?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Well, there are many things that the President does that are completely out of the question that are not impeachable. And they’re about the election. But when it comes to violating the Constitution of the United States, as he undermines our national security, jeopardizes the integrity of our elections, dishonors his own oath of office, that’s about impeachment.
MARGARET BRENNAN: So the Constitution defines an impeachable offense as treason, bribery or high crimes and misdemeanors.
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Yes.
MARGARET BRENNAN: What do you think applies to this case?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: We are unfolding the facts. That’s what an inquiry is about.
MARGARET BRENNAN: You use the term bribery.
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Yeah, I was translating from the Latin. That – that was in the context of E Pluribus Unum. From many, one. And so I said from many, one. Quid pro quo, bribery. Now that’s what that is. Mm-Hm.
MARGARET BRENNAN: So, but do you expect that to be one of the articles –
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: I have no idea. Well, there is not even a decision made to impeach the President.
MARGARET BRENNAN: Mm-Hm.
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: This is a finding of fact, unfolding of the truth, and then a decision will be made, and that is a decision that goes beyond me.
MARGARET BRENNAN: Well, you point out factually, right, that vote has not taken place to proceed necessarily with impeachment. But do you think you’ll go through all of this and not vote to impeach the President?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: That remains – the facts, if the President has information that demonstrates his innocence in all of this, which we haven’t seen. His transcript of a phone call is tucked away in a highly sensitive, compartmentalized intelligence server so we can’t see that. If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpa, blame, then we look forward to seeing it.
However, contrary to what the left wing media may have you believe, not all Democrats are on board with this impeachment sham.
Democrat Rep. Jeff Van Drew voted against the impeachment resolution and told Fox News that other Democrats are “worn out” and “bored” by the impeachment inquiry.
“There is some discussion among some of them quietly, privately of concern, certainly,” he said. “What I’m hearing out in the street is with most people, they are kind of tired, kind of worn out, bored and they really want to move on. Unless there’s something new and amazing, we know the end game.”
Van Drew also said that the recent impeachment inquiries have not moved his decision to not impeach the President.
“I would imagine I’ll be voting no,” he said. “If there’s something new or something we have not heard or something that really rises to the level of treason or high crime, that would be different. But we do not see that.”
Van Drew also went on to speak about the fact that impeaching or attempting to impeach Trump will not bode well for Democrats in the rapidly approaching 2020 presidential election.
“You don’t disenfranchise voters–millions upon millions of voters. Voters choose their leaders in America,” Van Drew concluded.
