Nancy Pelosi is caught between a rock and a hard place.
She knows that her liberal base wants to see Trump impeached, but she also knows that the American people would punish Democrats for doing so.
And now, Pelosi just got the worst news ever about impeaching Trump.
Nancy Pelosi is trying to walk a tightrope that she cannot hope to pull off.
She’s caught between two impossible positions that would either result in the end of her political career, or a massive defeat for her Democratic Party in 2020.
And it all centers about the question of impeaching President Donald Trump.
Democrats hate Trump.
They’ve hated him ever since he announced he was running for President in 2015.
And they’ve hated him even more now that he’s actually in office.
But now that Robert Mueller gave them one last chance to go after Trump with impeaching him from office, the pressure on Nancy Pelosi to actually follow through with impeachment is stronger than ever.
But Pelosi knows that if she does try to impeach the President, not only do Democrats lack the votes to actually remove him from office, but the American people would likely punish the Democratic Party in a major way in the 2020 elections if they pull this stunt.
And now Pelosi has nowhere to turn. She loses either way, either by alienating her party and putting her position as Speaker in jeopardy, or by trying to impeach the President and invite the wrath of the American people.
Even liberal outlets like NBC are covering how difficult of a position Pelosi is currently in.
NBC reports, “Speaker Nancy Pelosi likes to talk about the numbers to defend her go-slow approach to launching a formal impeachment process against President Donald Trump. But there are strong signs that the pro-impeachment forces in the House are both larger than she portrays — and growing. That is, there’s a lot of iceberg under the surface.”
“Since special counsel Robert Mueller spoke publicly for the first time about his finding that he could not exonerate the president on Wednesday, delivered shortly before Pelosi spoke, the number of House members calling for either the start to an official inquiry or an outright impeachment vote on Trump has grown to 52.”
“But it doesn’t count a hard-to-quantify set of House Democrats who, without being held in check by Pelosi, would be ready now to hit the start button on impeachment. Democratic insiders say there’s a significant chunk of the caucus showing deference to Pelosi either because they agree with her more methodical strategy, because they believe she’s proved her acumen or because they don’t want to publicly challenge her.”
Long story short, Pelosi is trying to hold back a tidal wave of epic proportions.
Many Democrats have yet to call for impeachment out of loyalty to Pelosi.
But the cracks are starting to form.
And it may not be long before Pelosi has to bring up impeachment or else she risks losing control of her party, even if it means that she’s damaging Democratic attempts to win the upcoming 2020 elections to decide control of the entire Federal government.
