In some of the strongest language yet on the subject, Liz Warren is bucking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s opinion on the impeachment of Donald Trump.
Madame Speaker has long been anti-impeachment. From the very first inklings of the argument, Pelosi has been adamant about her wishes to stay uninvolved in such messy, political business.
Of course, the belief here is that a failed impeachment would give incumbent President Donald Trump a mighty tailwind heading into the 2020 election. Given that the Senate is solidly in the grasp of the republican party, there is little doubt that impeachment would move beyond that second legislative entity – thus nearly guaranteeing Trump an electoral leg-up.
Trump, understanding this perfectly well, has been goading the left from the Oval Office, seemingly daring them to impeach him.
And it’s working, with the Commander in Chief having gotten under the skin of 2020 democratic candidate for President Liz Warren.
Warren’s calls for impeachment come at a trying time for the democrats, who have allowed 24 candidates to emerge for the 2020 election – a number that has helped to spawn ballistic and cannibalistic tendencies among the potential nominees.
With Nancy Pelosi standing at the door and telling these fiery progressives flatly no, there is little room for Warren’s take on impeachment. Yet, it still exists, and it is growing in the younger, deeper depths fo the democratic party.
Pelosi will buckle to this pressure, but the only question is when? Will she attempt to hold off the vitriol until after 2020, when she could go after a President with no possibility of reelection?
Or, isn’t it more likely that Warren and other high profile democrats will force Speaker Pelosi’s hand?
