San Francisco’s Nancy Pelosi, as usual, is making the rounds on morning television. And, as usual, while on NBC’s Today Show with Savannah Guthrie, she repeated the hope that President Donald J. Trump will be indicted for something, anything will do, once Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is done with his investigative hamster wheel to nowhere even if the Department of Justice has guidelines preventing such a move.
“I do not think that that is conclusive,” Pelosi said about the guidance.
“I think that that is an open discussion. I think that is an open discussion in terms of the law,” she said, on the eve of reclaiming her former title as speaker of the House. Pelosi will become the first lawmaker in recent history to hold that office twice when the 116th Congress convenes Thursday.
Oh, really. For two years the Democrats have been braying about impeaching President Trump for…well, something. Now they’re talking about indictments? No actual crime for which Trump is guilty has been presented, but that doesn’t stop people like Pelosi from talking about removing Trump from office.
“We have to wait and see what happens with the Mueller report. We shouldn’t be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn’t avoid impeachment for a political reason. So we’ll just have to see how it comes,” she said.
On other pending issues, Pelosi stood her ground on the issue of Trump’s demand for funding his border wall with Mexico.
“No, no. Nothing for the wall. We’re talking about border security,” she said. “There is no amount of persuasion he can do to say to us, ‘We want you to do something that is not effective, that costs billions of dollars.’ That sends the wrong message about who we are as a country.”
This from a woman who has a wall around her own house.
Has she ever considered what that says about her given her desire for the rest of us to be open to invasion?
The next two years are going to be entertaining, that’s for sure.
