Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi just made a major career decision. It’s the end of an era, and the Washington establishment is stunned.
Pelosi is now sparring with members of her own party demanding that impeachment proceedings against President Trump move forward, calling into question just how much longer she’ll last as House speaker.
According to reports, a heated debate has been raging behind closed doors between Pelosi and several Democratic lawmakers. In one meeting, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) reportedly stood up and called for action.
In response to Cohen’s call for impeachment, Pelosi said, “This is not about politics, it’s about what’s best for the American people.”
Cohen even claimed that Pelosi was afraid to impeach Trump for political reasons. “This isn’t about politics at all. It’s about patriotism. It’s about the strength we need to have to see things through,” said Pelosi.
When someone as liberal and generally out-of-touch as Pelosi is trying to keep the Democratic Party from going off the deep end, you know things are bad. This divide is going to destroy them in 2020.
