White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is known for her blunt, down-to-earth talk, and she just made a stunning statement on live TV that has shocked the media once again. They didn’t see it coming.
Regarding impeachment, Sanders exposed the major divide within the Democratic Party and said Speaker Nancy Pelosi managed to stumble across the truth — that trying to impeach President Trump is a fool’s errand and it needs to be dropped.
On the war between Democrat leadership and the party’s fringe base, she said, “I think Nancy Pelosi is clearly already starting to lose control of her party. I think we’re seeing that on a lot of the things that have taken place over the last couple of weeks.”
“I’m glad she [Pelosi] sees what the rest of us see, and there’s no reason, no cause for impeachment,” Sanders continued, underscoring just how unexpected it was to hear Pelosi say that seeking impeachment is a terrible idea.
Pelosi told The Washington Post the other day: “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”
Of course, she’s still holding out for the ‘smoking gun’ that will allow her to go after Trump anyway. But this is wishful thinking on her part, and her real problem is a rabid, anti-Trump base led by the likes of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
