Op Ed: ICYMI – Just when you think the Democratic Party can’t go any further off the rails, Pelosi rears her elderly head and says something like this…
The current Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, the notorious Democrat from California, is apparently willing to lose her job as Speaker of the House in order to launch a, in my opinion, bogus impeachment inquiry targeting President Trump.
Not only is Pelosi risking losing her job as Speaker, she is, by definition, seemingly willing to hand the House majority back over the Republicans. Which means if the Republicans can keep the Senate and Trump survives the latest slings and arrows, Trump and HIS Republican party would have total control of the US Government.
I say “Trump’s Republican Party” because everyone I talk to no longer calling themselves a Republican, but they are voting for Trump. I hope the establishment realizes that if they abandon Trump, we abandon them, and if we abandon them the country will fall into the hands of the, in my opinion, now openly fascist and ever lusting for power, Democratic Party.
One more thing about the Republicans taking the House back, something few people mention … SUBPOENA POWER. With control of the House comes the ability to issue congressional subpoenas, the same ones the Dems are currently using to try and give Trump a 50 year, retroactive financial & ethical prostate exam.
Breitbart reported on Pelosi’s comments:
Appearing at the Texas Tribune’s Tribune Fest, Pelosi stated it’s more important for Congress to uphold its duty of holding the president accountable than maintaining power over the lower chamber.

“It doesn’t matter,” Pelosi replied when asked by Tribune CEO Evan Smith if she harbors any “anxiety” over the Democrats’ ability to keep the House if their impeachment inquiry goes awry.
“Our first responsibility is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” said the speaker.
“People say you have to take a political risk doing that,” she went on. “That doesn’t matter. Because we cannot have a president of the United States undermining his oath of office, his loyalty to his oath of office, undermining our national security, and undermining the integrity of our elections.”
Pelosi’s comments come after the speaker announced an impeachment inquiry this week against President Donald Trump over a telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which the pair discussed U.S. military aid and the business dealings of Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President and 2020 White House contender Joe Biden. The July 25th conversation was the subject of so-called “whistleblower” complaint, which according to its author, a CIA officer, is comprised entirely of second-hand knowledge of the call. Additionally, the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel’s (OLC) affirmed that the Deep Stater has a bias in favor of a political rival of President Trump. Further, CBS News and Fox News report that the complaint includes inaccuracies, including the false claim charging that Ulrich Brechbuhl, the Counselor to the U.S. State Department, was on the call.
Let’s not forget that Trump’s administration was the one who released the Situation Room notes on the call with Ukraine. Trump also took to Twitter (I wish he would use Spreely.com instead, but hey, one step at a time) to set the record straight on Ukraine.
Breitbart went on to report:
President Trump lambasted critics of the call in a pair of tweets Saturday, writing: “The Whistleblower’s complaint is completely different and at odds from my actual conversation with the new President of Ukraine. The so-called “Whistleblower” knew practically NOTHING in that those ridiculous charges were far more dramatic & wrong, just like Liddle’ Adam Schiff.”
“The conversation with the new and very good Ukraine President, who told the Fake News, at the United Nations, that HE WAS NOT PRESSURED BY ME IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, should by and of itself bring an end to the new and most recent Witch Hunt. Others ended in ashes!” the president added.
So if Giuliani is right, and this was all a ‘trap’, boy have the Dems stepped in it this time.
I know many of you are saying “yeah, yeah yeah, heard this before” and I have to admit, I am a bit skeptical. However, it sure looks like this could be Trump making his move, just in time for 2020 and his reelection campaign, to finally hold the Dems accountable for all the crimes we believe they committed while in power. I suppose only time will tell. PS Sign Up For SPREELY!
