Democrat Civil War: House Members Defect After Leader Pelosi Says ‘No Impeachment’
The civil war going on in the Democrat Party has only intensified as Nancy Pelosi declared that impeachment was a waste of time and off the table.
“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,” she said. “He’s just not worth it.”
Pelosi’s comments contradict the views of many House Democrats who are eager to pursue a path to impeachment, either from the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe or new, broad House investigations that will examine Trump’s business dealings and potential conflicts of interest.
Congressman Al Green, basically ignored the Leader, stating he is going to do it anyway.
Ocasio-Cortez stated “We will see!”
Aunt Maxine? Well, she just stayed Aunt Maxine…clueless…
Green, who has previously had two bills to impeach Trump overwhelmingly rejected by the House of Representatives, said in an interview with C-SPAN that he is pushing for a third impeachment vote. This was only one day after Pelosi said impeachment was “just not worth it” in a Monday interview.
“There will be another vote on impeachment,” Green said in the interview. “If you desire to stop me, you but only have to change the rules so that I can’t bring a vote on impeachment. Otherwise I will, because the Constitution and the rules allow any one person to bring a vote on impeachment.”
Maxine Waters just seemed to pretend that Nancy Pelosi did not even exist.
“Everybody knows what I’ve said. Everybody knows that I’ve been for impeachment. None of this is new,” Waters (D-Calif.) told TMN in an interview on Tuesday.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., said her constituents are demanding that Congress investigate Trump and even attempt to remove him from office if the findings call for it.
Jayapal is definitely not abandoning impeachment, she told reporters.
“It’s not about whether or not it’s worth it,” Jayapal said. “It’s our obligation to the American people and the Constitution. That’s how I think about it.”
Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer seems to have had enough!
Hoyer slams Tlaib, Omar, Ocasio-Cortez when asked about Dems who would still like to push for impeachment, despite Pelosi saying she opposes impeachment. Hoyer: “We’ve got 62 new (Democratic) members. Not three”

This civil war just seems to get bigger by the day.
I have personal word, from a well trusted liberal source, that the chaos we are seeing among the Democrats at this time is much worse that what we see.
Nancy Pelosi is stuck between a severe rock and a hard place and really does not know what to do to get out of it!
I had an extensive phone call earlier this week with a longtime friend who is involved heavily with the local liberal grassroots movement as well as campaigns and staffing at the national level.
“Unfortunately, you would be doing the happy dance if you really knew how bad it was!” she laughed at me. “The leadership is split, the activists are split, and the voters are split! The hard feelings are really beginning to erupt.”
Nancy Pelosi has lost control of her caucus. She has a number that sided with Trump on building the wall, and she has a number who have gone full blown socialist.
Get the pop-corn!
