Pelosi: Trump’s Impeachment ‘An Impeachment That Will Last Forever’

(Breitbart) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) boasted about President Donald Trump’s impeachment as one that “will last forever” on Wednesday at a press briefing.

Pelosi said, “On December 18, the House of Representatives impeached the president of the United States — an impeachment that will last forever. Since December 18, there have been comments about when are we going to send the articles over. Well, we had hoped that the courtesy would be extended that we would have seen what the process would be in the Senate. Short of that, the time has revealed many things since then. Time has been our friend on all of this.”

Nancy Pelosi Announces Schiff, Nadler and Others as Impeachment Trial Managers

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Wednesday who will serve as the House Democrats’ impeachment managers in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Pelosi named House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, along with Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Val Demings (D-FL), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Jason Crow (D-CO), and Sylvia Garcia (D-TX). Schiff will take on the role of lead impeachment manager.

“Today is an important day,” said Pelosi at a Capitol Hill press conference. “The emphasis is making the strongest possible case to protect and defend our constitution, to seek the truth for the American people.”

A House vote to send the articles to the Senate is scheduled for early Wednesday afternoon. The measure is expected to pass. If it does, the Senate trial is expected to begin early next week, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said.

Ahead of the historic trial, the White House is finalizing the legal team that will defend Trump.

Jay Sekulow, Trump’s personal attorney, said he’s part of a legal team headed by White House counsel Pat Cipollone that will defend the president against two impeachable charges that were passed by the House last month. The articles of impeachment — accusing Trump of abusing his power and obstructing Congress — have been held for weeks by House Democrats, who said they first wanted to see a trial blueprint from Senate leaders to ensure a fair process.

Cipollone and Sekulow will be joined on the team by White House attorneys Patrick Philbin and Michael Purpura, the Washington Examiner reported.

The charges against Trump stem from his dealings with Ukraine last year — specifically, his efforts pressing Kiev to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, a former board member of a Ukrainian gas company.

Cipollone, 53, has been a vocal critic of the House’s impeachment process and is considered the main force behind White House efforts that blocked most witnesses in the administration from testifying during the lower chamber’s inquiry.

An Oct. 8 White House letter called the process “partisan and unconstitutional” and made a case for a broad interpretation of executive privilege covering nearly every aspect of presidential conduct.

President Trump seemingly reacted to Pelosi’s announcement by once again calling the partisan impeachment process a “con.”

“Here we go again, another Con Job by the Do Nothing Democrats. All of this work was supposed to be done by the House, not the Senate!” the president tweeted.

Over the weekend, the president suggested that the articles should be dismissed instead of the Senate going ahead with a full trial.

“Why should I have the stigma of Impeachment attached to my name when I did NOTHING wrong? Read the Transcripts! A totally partisan Hoax, never happened before. House Republicans voted 195-0, with three Dems voting with the Republicans. Very unfair to tens of millions of voters!” he wrote.

Earlier Wednesday, McConnell echoed President Trump’s sentiments, making the case for the Senate to acquit the president ahead of the articles being transferred to the upper chamber.

“Speaker Pelosi and the House have taken our nation down a dangerous road. If the Senate blesses this unprecedented and dangerous House process by agreeing that an incomplete case and subjective basis are enough to impeach a president, we will almost guarantee the impeachment of every future president,” the Kentucky Republican said in a Senate floor speech.

  1. Hey piglosi….Go and have a couple more “double-shots” – it may help slow-down your obvious dementia!! What a demented KALEEFORNICA cow – you really are!! I can’t wait for Trump’s landslide re-election in November – so you will be out-of-a-job…FOREVER!! MAGA!!

  2. Something that will last forever is that Nancy Pelosi will go down as the worst House Speaker in the history of American politics.

  3. President Trump’s impeachment will have NO results forever since he did not do amything wrong. The Democrat bullies in the Do-Nothing-Congress just don’t like this President who works in truth for the American people who sent him into office. Unlike Pelosi and Gang, he keeps his promises for good and not for evil.

  4. Hey Piglosi,,,,,,the only thing that will last forever is your ugliness,,,,,damn girl,,,,you are ugly as hell warmed over,,,,and now the ugliness has infected your brain to the point that all the alcohol you consume ain’t helping,,,,,your stupidity comes through loud and clear every time you open your mouth,,,your “dream team” you have announced for the senate trial is a huge laughable joke ,,,,liars,,incompetent libelous individuals who scare no one,,,their lack of knowledge will be opened for the entire world to see,,,,your biggest nightmare has just begun,,,the DREAM TEAM is across the aisle in the Conservative section and they are fixing to take your ass to school,,,,beware,,,the total socialist agenda of your dispicable party is about to be exposed,,,,,have a nice day witch,,,

  5. Yesterday, the Ides of January, will forever be the day the Republic, known formerly as the United States, has forever died! This ridiculous sham of an impeachment has killed the place I hold dear.
    For now and evermore, when one party hold the White House and the other the House of Representatives, we will see this impeachment nonsense be a continuous thorn in the side of the president and few will be able to get beyond that. So when that situation arises, we will see what we have witnessed for the past 3 years. NOTHING. The only reason this continues is because the dems have nothing, do nothing, are out of ideas, have screwed up every major city in the country that they govern. Yet those same fools keep getting reelected.
    How long does it take to realize you’ve been screwed?
    Name one thing the dems have done to improve the U.S.?
    What a waste!

  6. When this is over and showing who is a true Americn and who is not, the nots should be given the choice of attending a good conservative school or leave this country for
    One who fits their ideals…..until the money runs out. Be assured that they won’t be welcomed back here.

  7. Remember not long ago when they the Democrats “The Deep State”, “The One World Order” wanted to re-write the constitution and even had it put on the ballet for a vote THANK GOD it did NOT pass ! So now that “The One World Order” or “DEEP STATE” or what ever you want to call them they figured that they’ll just re-write the constitution with or with out “We The People” and do it on their own ! These people need to be arrested and put in prison for TREASON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Pelosi sounded a little tipsier and her Democrat stooges have reduced the meaning of Impeachment to getting a parking ticket

  8. Read the transcript and he is as guilty as it gets. So the evidence and witnesses supported that and he’s impeached. Most think that the Trial will take away the impeachment title…NEVER. He’s impeached and it is forever. That’s just a fact.

    • If someone goes to the Supreme Court, I know they will void it because it broke the rules of the Constitution. It is one of the presidents duties to call out crime when they see it, and that is all he did. He is also allowed executive privilege. They called both of these things a rime, and they are not. They are not impeachable.

    • He WAS impeached, but if it did not go to the Senate, the House invalidated its own impeachment. Since it went now, it IS there unless it is struck down as invalid by the Senate. If it IS struck down it does not exist. If the Senate does not make a decision, the impeachment IS forever, like that of Bill Clinton, which had 11 criminal articles, it was a slam-dunk. Except that the Democrats owned the Senate and refused to bring it up to vote, so the indictment stands forever….

    • And it is all a spiteful, illegitimate passage. No facts were presented –only people that ‘thought’ or was ‘told’ or thought it was ‘common knowledge’. NONE of which are facts. Besides that point you have the undeniable fact that Obama himself didnt give Ukraine aid for 4 years and when he did he sent them blankets. Obama had 2800 drone strikes in the middle east and killed 324 civilians during those strikes, Obama illegally gave Iran 1.7 BILLION in cash. Nobody said one word about the Constitution nor our laws when he did it. Besides that Trump did not withhold funds from Ukraine because it cannot possibly be considered withheld until after the due date to release was past. It wasn’t.

  9. Impeachment defense fund? Are you serious? You are begging for donations…what happened to all the money Trump has? Can’t he afford it? Thought he was the great negotiator!

  10. It is very sad when our elected officials act like spoiled brats. They are letting their personal feelings get in the way of representing the ones that elected them and pay their salary. They work for us, that is another thing they have ignored.
    They have been trying to impeach President Trump since the beginning of his term.
    The only reason is they have no one that can beat his in the upcoming election.
    He is all that is standing between US and the Progressive/Commies. It is hard to believe that any one of the Dem’s has read the Constitution let alone understand it.
    The Constitution is getting in their way of controlling US. There is even some in the House that their core beliefs are not compatible with America. I am shocked that nothing has been done to straighten them out. I think that the Speaker of the House is afraid of the unworthy ones.

  11. And Pelosi’s name will live in infamy as the one who did this partisan, sham impeachment that undermined our Constitution.
