Did Trump just start shedding his vaunted “base?” Hear me out before you laugh.

Ever since the campaign, at one time or another we have claimed the “bridge too far” moment in what Trump has said and done, and been proven wrong every time. Along the way, most of us resigned ourselves that there was an unshakable base of 35-40% that would follow him to the gates of hell. […]

Pelosi Releases Update on Investigation: She Is Feeling the Heat to Impeach

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi’s office released a statement regarding the investigation(s)’s status. Earlier this week, I noted that a majority of House members now support an impeachment inquiry. Unless that new majority is factored in, this statement seems out of the blue. But accounting for the fact that Pelosi finds herself in the minority among her own caucus makes the timing near predictable. Regardless of motivation, the statement’s most relevant parts are noteworthy and need to be heard: Full Statement HERE: When we take the oath of office, we solemnly vow ‘to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.’  The Mueller report states unequivocally that Russia interfered in the 2016 election ‘in sweeping and systematic fashion.’  And the Intelligence Community informs us that Russia is working 24/7 to undermine our elections.  This assault on our elections is a serious national security matter which the President chooses to ignore. “The Mueller report and his testimony last week confirmed that the President’s campaign welcomed Russian interference in the election, and laid out ten instances of the President’s obstruction of justice.  The President’s more recent attempts to prevent us from finding the facts is further evidence of obstruction of justice. “To protect our democracy and our Constitution, Democrats in the Congress continue to legislate, investigate and litigate… “The assault on our elections and our Constitution is a grave national security issue.  We owe it to our Founders to sustain our system of checks and balances and our democracy.  We owe it to our heroic men and women in uniform who risk their lives for freedom to defend our democracy at home.  We owe it to our children to ensure that no present or future president can dishonor the oath of office without being held accountable. In the actual statement, she lists the actions taken and the status of each effort. I will admit, the list is rather impressive. **** But that seems to be the point, and in making that point, Pelosi comes off as defensive. She realizes that a majority of her caucus now favors an impeachment inquiry, is she telling them anything they don’t already know? No. These are sitting members of Congress. They would learn updates on the investigations merely having lunch, their staff would hear from friends on others’ staffs, and then there are the more formal reports available only to them. Pelosi is not speaking to her own caucus. She is speaking to us. She wants us to know that she has been, and will continue to be, opposing Trump at every turn. She clearly feels some serious political heat. She is hoping that this statement appeases the most aggressive of us. She does not want to see those polls favoring impeachment to get above 50% and stay that way. In this, she comes off as weak and, again, defensive. **** She is saying all the right things except the right thing. An impeachment inquiry is needed, not because it will lead to Trump’s removal, but because we need Donald Trump running for president with all his garbage spilled out on the sidewalk. Removal comes through the election, when a majority cannot even hold their nose anymore and vote for a fraud. The only way to beat Trump and Trumpism as a […]
