In a shocking admission made on Friday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi admitted that the public does not support impeaching President Donald Trump.
The comments were made on a conference call with other House Democrats. “The public isn’t there on impeachment.”
She said that if they were to make a case for impeachment, it would nee to be “as strong” as possible.
“If and when we act, people will know he gave us no choice,” Pelosi added.
Check out what The Associated Press reported:
More than half the House Democrats support opening an impeachment inquiry. But Pelosi said the House must weigh its “responsibility to protect and defend the Constitution” with the need to be “unifying and not dividing.”
She also said she’s using a nightguard because it’s “very hard” not to grind her teeth “all night about what’s going on in the White House.”
Impeachment clearly wouldn’t be a good decision for Democrats considering it would rile up the Trump base even more. Republicans have substantially out fundraised the Democrats as well.
In the month of July alone, the Republican National Committee (RNC) raised over $20 million which tripled the amount that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) raised in the same month.
Last month, the RNC pulled in a whopping $20.8 billion which brought their total fundraising amount for the 2020 election to $177.9 million. The DNC was only able to bring in $7.7 million for the month of July which brings their grand total to a measly $51.6 million.
“Last month’s fundraising haul again smashed records, and we continue to directly invest this money into growing our top-notch data-driven infrastructure, recruiting and training thousands of new volunteers, and registering voters across the country,” Ronna McDaniel, RNC Chairwoman said. “Our fundraising success is further evidence that the American people like the pro-growth agenda and economic record that the Trump Administration and Republicans will continue to deliver, and this puts us in a strong position to secure more Republican victories in 2020.”
While the Republicans are successfully raising money in the United States, the DNC led by Tom Perez is forced to campaign in Mexico.
Bloomberg recently reported that Perez will be going to Mexico to have multiple fundraisers in September.
“The events range from happy hour drinks with a $25 minimum student entry to a dinner where tickets range from $1,000 to $15,000. The registration form on the DNC website require that attendees be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enter passport or green card numbers. It is illegal for foreigners to contribute to American political campaigns,” Bloomberg says.
Check out what The Blaze reported:
Bloomberg reported that Perez’s trip will include three events in the city on Saturday, Sept. 28. These events include a happy hour where the cost of admission is $50 for an attendee or $25 for students with an ID, as well as a dinner that offers $1,000 “Supporter” tickets and $15,000 “Champion” level tickets.
A DNC spokesperson confirmed Perez’s attendance at the events to Bloomberg.
The fundraising events are open to American citizens and legal permanent residents and the online registration requires that participants provide either passports or green card numbers to verify their status. It is illegal, after all, for foreign nationals to donate to American political campaigns.
The U.S. State Department says that 1.5 million American citizens currently live in Mexico. The 2015 numbers from the Mexican government show that over 90 percent of Americans living in the country don’t have their immigration status in order.
