NY Times Skewers Pelosi for Backing Down on Impeachment

Tom Steyer  YouTube

The statement was deliberately planned and carefully crafted to distance the Democratic congressional leadership from the democratic and constitutional issues raised by Trump's open embrace of authoritarian methods, and to reduce the question of impeachment to the small change of congressional maneuvering and electoral politics.

Cicilline said, "We should never proceed with impeachment for political reasons and we should never avoid moving forward with impeachment for political reasons". This is news. I'm going to give you some news right now because I haven't said this to any press person before. If Congress opts against impeachment regardless of what the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, reports, would that set the bar so high that impeachment will no longer be a viable option?

But she had been cautious in the past about impeaching him.

"And he's just not worth it".

"I think the more candidates the better", he said.

In the pre-dawn darkness of 5:50 a.m., the president, 72, returned to a cherished topic: himself and what he sees as his history-making success in the Oval Office.

Arsenal have missed out on Champions League football for the last two seasons, and their poor away record remains a big concerns. I said to the players today, I am excited about this competition.

So what we see here is the leader of the Republican party raising the specter of impeachment, while the ostensible leader of the Democratic party tamping down impeachment talk.

While several senior Democrats agree with Pelosi, those on the far-left including freshmen like Representatives Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., are pushing against the speaker.

Other top House Democrats backed Pelosi, including those conducting major investigations into actions by Trump that have been cited as potentially impeachable offenses. "I think Pelosi realizes this: We can't spend all of our time concentrating on what we're fighting against", he said.

Public hearings-such as the recent session held with former Trump fixer Michael Cohen before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee-will convince the American public that Trump needs to be removed, Steyer said.

"To show you just how out of sorts they've gotten, the AFL-CIO published a letter saying "we will not tolerate the Green [New] Deal" because it's going to impact millions of their hard-working, blue-collar Americans and their families", he said.
