The new year looks a lot like the old one with the do-nothing Congress focused on their vendetta against President Trump while real Americans continue to suffer the fallout from COVID lockdowns.
Now that lawmakers have sealed the deal on a rigged election with their certification of the Electoral College vote, the clock is running down on Trump’s historic term which ends next Wednesday.
Despite his transition back to the private realm, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has once again assembled her impeachment-obsessed leftist lynch mob in a stupid and futile ploy that says more about her own obsessions than “saving” Democracy from Trump.
On Sunday, Madame Speaker was given a nationally televised prime time venue to rage against a man who she despises on CBS flagship “60 Minutes” which like other “news” shows, has devolved into little more than a propaganda arm of the Democrat party.
During her interview with Lesley Stahl, Pelosi exploited the brief occupation of the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters and Antifa provocateurs to justify her unprecedented actions in the waning days of the administration.
And she let it slip that there is one unspoken reason behind the rushed impeachment that is the proverbial elephant in the room – to prevent Trump from running again in 2024 which is the swamp’s worst nightmare.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday night that one of the motivating factors for some in the new effort to impeach President Trump and remove him from office is to eliminate any chance he has of being elected again.
Last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol Building has quickly become one of the greatest challenges to Trump’s presidency. Democrats and some Republicans blame him for his overheated rhetoric leading up to the unrest that led to five deaths and dozens of arrests.
Leslie Stahl, the correspondent, mentioned some of the possible outcomes for Trump to Pelosi and pointed out that there is a chance that he somehow manages to leave office and run for president again.
Pelosi responded that the prospect of Trump running for president again is one of the motivations “that people have for advocating for impeachment.”
She said that she prefers using the 25th Amendment “because it gets rid of him.”
“But there is strong support in the Congress for impeaching the president a second time,” she said. “This president is guilty of inciting insurrection. He has to pay a price for that.”
Stahl did press the prickly Pelosi on her stalling of the second round of coronavirus relief payments but mostly the interview was typical of the coddling given to Democrats and their operatives by a corrupted media.
The House will vote on the article of impeachment on the ginned-up charge that he incited an insurrection on Monday, after that it faces an uncertain fate in the Senate.
And Americans who have been economically devasted by the pandemic can go straight to Hell thanks to Pelosi and a Congress that no longer serves the people.
