House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has impeached former President Donald Trump in the House twice now — and hasn’t succeeded.
Pelosi was able to get her slim House majority to impeach Trump, without an investigation or evidence. But the Senate let her down, after only seven Republicans choose to turn on the party.
That means, Trump can very well run again if he chooses. Pelosi might not even be in office by then.
Some Democrats are searching for new ways to “punish” Trump, but apparently, Pelosi doesn’t even want to hear it.
According to The Hill, Pelosi said she’s not interested in censuring Trump after the Senate acquitted him last weekend.
She implied that censuring Trump would be similar to giving “a little slap on the wrist.”
“What is so important that the political survival of any of us, that is more important, than our Constitution that we take an oath to defend?” asked Pelosi. “What we saw in that Senate today was a cowardly group of Republicans who claim they have no options because they were afraid to defend their job.”
As Pelosi began to leave the podium, a reporter apparently asked Pelosi about whether she would move to censure President Trump in the House of Representatives.
In response, Pelosi began talking loudly and emotionally before returning to the podium, hands and arms flailing wildly to express her disapproval.
“They let everybody off the hook, all these cowardly Senators,” she said, slamming the podium.
“Who couldn’t face up to what the President did, and what was at stake for our country, are now going to have a chance to give a little slap on the wrist? We censure people for using stationary for the wrong purpose, we don’t censure people for inciting insurrection,” she added.
Former White House strategist Steve Bannon is making a major prediction ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
“Going forward, we can transform the Republican Party into more of a MAGA movement … just immerse the (Make America Great Again) movement with the Republican Party, and we’re going to have massive victories in the future,” Bannon said.
“Trump is a disruptor, but he has a long-term vision because I absolutely believe in the marrow of my bones that he will be our nominee in 2024,” Bannon later added. “He’ll come back to us. We’ll have a sweeping victory in 2022, and he’ll lead us in 2024.”
“We totally get rid of Nancy Pelosi, and the first act of President Trump as speaker will be to impeach Joe Biden for his illegitimate activities of stealing the presidency,” Bannon said.
“It’s between populists, nationalists, traditionalists versus these kinds of globalists, elites, secular radicals,” Bannon said, adding, “This is what I think the future of this movement is… We’re going to have a big aspect of disaffected Democrats that start to come over.”
Lou Murray, the chair of the West Roxbury Ward 20 Republican Committee, also said that “more traditionally-minded Democrats” will leave the party because of the “radicalism” of Biden’s administration.
“I 100% agree with that,” Murray said, later adding, “The Trump brand isn’t over. The MAGA, America First message of Donald Trump is extremely popular, and that message will keep being extremely popular.”
