Dems hit new impeachment threshold, putting Pelosi’s feet to the fire

Have the democrats reached the point of no return?

Nancy Pelosi is being dragged from the shadows of her anti-impeachment hideout, kicking and screaming, after House democrats crossed a major threshold.

For months, Pelosi has been under a near-constant barrage of calls for the impeachment of President Trump.  The so-called impeachable allegations against him range from Russian “collusion” to being overly cautious with his tax returns.  This blanket of assertions has been at the forefront of “resistance” politics, with many liberal voters growing ever more frustrated with Madam Speakers hesitation on the subject.

Pelosi’s belief, which is likely correct, is that impeachment would fail in the Senate and give the President a major boost in the 2020 election.

As a new headcount of impeachment advocates in the House goes public, however, there may be no turning back for the congressional leader.

A majority of House Democrats are now on record publicly supporting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, according to a CNN count — a sign of momentum for pro-impeachment lawmakers that is likely to ramp up pressure on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democratic leaders.

Rep. Salud Carbajal of California became the 118th Democrat to publicly support the start of an impeachment inquiry in a statement on Friday, at least the 23rd lawmaker to do so since special counsel Robert Mueller testified on Capitol Hill last week.

“I’ve read the full Mueller Report, the president knew the rules and he broke them—he cannot be above the law,” Carbajal said in the statement. “That is why I believe it is time to open an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.”

President Trump has, at times, looked to be goading the democrats toward impeachment, openly mocking the possibility on account of America’s current economic prosperity and the lack of evidence of “high crimes” or “misdemeanors”.
