(Breitbart) – On Thursday at her weekly press briefing, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the American people were “not going to decide” if President Donald Trump should be impeached.
When asked about the impeachment timeline, Pelosi said, “I keep saying to people, impeachment is about the truth and the Constitution of the United States. Any other issues that you have, disapproving of the way the president has dealt with Syria, whatever the subject is, reluctance, the cowardice to do something about gun violence, the cruelty of not wanting to help our Dreamers and transgender people, the denial about the climate crisis that we face, the list goes on, that’s about the election. That has nothing to do with what is happening in terms of our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution and the facts that might support. And we don’t know where this path will take us, it could take us down further path but the two are completely separate.”
A reporter asked, “At what point might you say let’s just let the voters decide.”
Pelosi said, “The voters are not going to decide whether we honor our oath of office. They already decided that in the last election.”
Flashback: Trump: Nancy Pelosi ‘Hates The United States Of America’
President Donald Trump on Friday declared during his Lake Charles, Louisiana, re-election rally that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “hates the United States of America.”
“Nervous Nancy, I used to think she loved the country,” President Trump began. “She hates the country, she wouldn’t be doing this to the country if she did,” the president continued, in reference to her support for an impeachment inquiry.
“Nancy Pelosi hates the country, hates the United States of America,” he added.
Pelosi recently unveiled an impeachment inquiry against President Trump after a partisan CIA officer filed a so-called “whistleblower” complaint alleging that the president pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into allegations of international corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
In recent days, the so-called “whistleblower” was outed as a registered Democrat, who worked with Biden during the Obama administration. Both President Trump and Zelensky have denied any pressure was applied to probe into the Bidens and the White House released a transcript of the world leaders’ July 25th call to illustrate no wrongdoing occurred.
“There was no blackmail,” the president of Ukraine told reporters when asked about the call this week. “We are not servants. We are an independent country.”
