BREAKING: Nadler Tells Pelosi To Go Scratch, Launches ‘Formal Impeachment Proceedings’ Against President Trump
As crazy and politically suicidal as this sounds, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York announced that “formal impeachment proceedings” against President Donald Trump have been officially made by his committee. This flies in the face of all logic and must have Nancy Pelosi fuming.
Nadler made an appearance on CNN, saying that people should not get “hung up on the semantics” as his committee is “investigating” the “facts and evidence.”
Nadler stated that he “wasn’t waiting” for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, who has been vocal about her stance as not to support impeachment of the President, going on to add that Pelosi has been “very cooperative” with his probe.
"This is formal impeachment proceedings."

According to Politico, “Pelosi has said impeachment is too divisive for the country and has relied on her six investigative committees to uncover new information about Trump’s alleged misconduct, focusing on his finances and his conduct as president. But Nadler said Pelosi ‘has been very cooperative’ in his panel’s efforts, and she personally signed off on recent court filings that effectively put to rest the semantic debate over whether to call the Judiciary Committee’s investigation an impeachment inquiry.”
Fox News reported that “after being pressed as to whether his investigation was considered ‘formal impeachment proceedings,’ Nadler insisted that’s what it is.”
“This is formal impeachment proceedings,” the Democrat said. “We are investigating all the evidence, we’re gathering the evidence and we will at the conclusion of this, hopefully by the end of the year, vote to, vote articles of impeachment to the House floor or we won’t. That’s a decision that we’ll have to make. But that — that’s exactly the process we’re in right now.”
“All right, so when you say formal impeachment proceedings, have you started drafting or preparing articles of impeachment should you need them?” host Erin Burnett questioned.
“There are articles of impeachment introduced a number of months ago and referred to the committee,” Nadler answered. “As the investigation proceeds, we may want to draft our own articles of impeachment that may more closely fit the evidence. We’ll see.”
Just days after Nancy Pelosi created a red herring, claiming Trump would not leave the White House if he lost, she is now declaring the Democrats can not “accept a second term for Donald Trump.” Pelosi declared that they need to use everything, including the courts, to ensure that he is not President for another four years. She made the comment at Cornell University’s Institute of Politics & Global Affairs Tuesday.
Pelosi said, “We have to make sure — this will sound political but we have to make sure that the Constitution wins the next presidential election. We can’t be worrying about well, how long is this going to take? Well, that will take as long as it does.
And we will press the case so that in the court of public opinion people will know what is right. But we cannot accept a second term for Donald Trump if we are going to be faithful to our democracy and to the Constitution of the United States.”
Pelosi added, “And that is just the fact. So we have to operate on many fronts. We have to operate in the Congress, in the courts, and in the court of public opinion, and we must win the next election.”
Pelosi has found her second term as speaker of the house to be an awkward one.
While many leftists find Ocsasio-Cortez to be the de facto leader of the party, Pelosi is still in charge and is responsible. The Democrat party is in chaos.
There is a huge civil war going on behind the scenes between the socialists and the real liberals. It is playing out in the primary. The base of the party has all but entirely walked away from all the ‘close to socialist’ candidates besides Bernie. Polls have Biden at 40% and Bernie at 13%.
The base of the party understands the danger of going too far left, and again are settling for Joe Biden. The female and minority candidates have been left in the dust!
Since he officially entered the race in April, Biden has seen an increase in public support and become the clear front-runner in the race.
The civil war is also being fought on Capital Hill.
Pelosi knows that the word ‘impeachment’ could be very caustic to the Dems in 2020. Yet many of those in her own caucus are ignoring her and marching along with plans to do just that. Not only to the President, but to the Attorney General, who they don;t even have the power to impeach!
“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,” Pelosi said. “He’s just not worth it.”

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…
Nancy Pelosi, you may just have to accept another term. We will see. But history tells me that if the economy stays the way it does, and the House continues down their path, and the far left continues to be the squeaky wheel, that it could be a landslide!
I will quote Ocasio-Cortez:
“We will see!”
