During a recent interview on ABC’s This Week, Nancy Pelosi admitted that her primary objective is to be rid of Donald Trump.
“Let’s be optimistic about the future,” Pelosi said, “a future that will not have Donald Trump in the White House one way or the other 10 months from now.”
Pelosi said today:
– Trump won't be president next year "one way or another"
– Dems may "have him removed sooner" than the election
– Trump "will be impeached forever"
It's clear: Impeachment was a Democrat hit job to stain Trump’s legacy and hurt him at the polls. Nothing more. pic.twitter.com/LY4TUwNiuZ

One way or the other? That sounds like a threat from the highest-ranking member of the House of Representatives against the sitting president.
The Senate is expected to dismiss the impeachment trial and the election is currently polling at a 50/50 tossup — at worst — for President Trump. It’s very likely that in 10 months, Trump will be exactly where he is now — sitting in the Oval Office as the President of the United States.
“We will have an election if we don’t have him removed sooner,” Pelosi told ABC. “But again, he will be impeached forever.”
But when it comes to Nancy Pelosi’s words, it’s sometimes hard to tell what is an ominous, veiled threat and what might be the illogical ramblings of an out-of-touch elitist. Her recent comments might be both.
