Nancy Pelosi Is Quietly Preparing Charges For Trump

Published

Donald J. Trump has committed more felonies while holding the office of President of the United States and leader of the free world than anyone could possibly have imagined. It now looks like it might all backfire in the most spectacular way imaginable:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Thursday that the House could pursue contempt charges against multiple people in Donald Trump’s orbit — not just Attorney General William Barr — as Democrats look to overcome the president’s blanket effort to hobble their investigations. Pelosi declined to provide a timeline for when the full House would vote to hold Barr in contempt of Congress for failing to provide the unredacted Mueller report, telling reporters there may be other related “issues” Democrats will want to handle simultaneously.

“When we’re ready we’ll come to the floor,” Pelosi said, a day after the House Judiciary Committee approved the contempt resoluion. “And we’ll just see because there may be some other contempt of Congress issues that we might want to deal with at the same time.” “We’re not going to wait a few months, but I think we could wait a few weeks,” said Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.). “Now we’re not even talking about isolated situations, we’re talking about a cumulative effect of obstruction that the administration is engaged in,” Pelosi said. “I support the path that our chairmen are on and I do believe that it will establish the case for where we go from here.”

It is clear that Speaker Pelosi is not acting alone here. She has already earned the public support of several of her most senior colleagues, including Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Ted Lieu. The Speaker is someone who has, in the past, talked down the idea of impeachment and insisted that Democrats should simply wait and hope that President Donald Trump gets voted out 0f office. However, these recent reports suggest that now, much like the rest of us, she is quickly growing tired of all the nonsense spewing out of the Trump administration as they desperately try to justify their crimes, and is taking a harder stance than ever before by indicating that not only is she ready to take very strong legal action against the President and his most senior allies in order to force them to face justice for what they have done, but that she is even already going so far as to hint at being in the process of preparing that very action, implying that we might get to see it enacted soon.
