Looks like former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receiving rather unsavory press coverage as a direct result of her own behavior, magnified through the commentary of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
After all, Pelosi effectively laid the path for the current impeachment probe into Biden by changing the process herself, among her pearl-clutching efforts to derail Trump.
Namely by launching an inquiry into Trump without holding a formal vote, which had previously never been done, as detailed by McCarthy.
“Nancy Pelosi changed the precedent of this House on September 24th. … Why would it have to be different today?” McCarthy crisply informed CNN’s Manu Raju.
Needless to say, Pelosi became enraged by McCarthy’s remarks and lamely attempted to deny the truth, much as the Biden regime is attempting to claim innocence in “Hunter’s” business dealings.
“No, it’s completely not true. We had a few weeks where we had to make our case and I assigned six committee chairs to get the information and the rest and that then prepared us to bring the bill to the floor. They’ve had what nine months of collecting information, they have nothing,” Pelosi rambled.
Oh really? Take that claim up with none other than the generally liberal Washington Post, Ms. Pelosi.
In an article that comparatively analyzes how Biden’s impeachment probe compares with Nixon’s, Clinton’s, and Trump’s, the newspaper admitted that Pelosi had not utilized the same “evidentiary” basis that her predecessors followed to bring forth their cases against Nixon and Clinton.
“Two decades later, the House again launched an impeachment investigation against a sitting president. That effort was initiated in September 2019 against Donald Trump and did not include a formal inquiry vote before the whole House. Instead, it was announced by then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), with Democratic-led House committees then taking up the effort …
That investigation began with a much-less-robust evidentiary basis than the Nixon or Clinton impeachment,” the Washington Post admitted.
When the Washington Post, not exactly known for its loyalty to “evidentiary basis,” is calling out Pelosi for her lack of attention to the facts, then you know Pelosi really became derailed in her dogged obsession of Trump.
And how obsessed she sounded, given all her bravado in 2019.
“We’re not here to call bluffs … This is not a game to us. This is deadly serious,” Pelosi drearily declared.
Former Vice President Mike Pence certainly called Pelosi’s bluff, however, declaring that he would not comply with the “self-proclaimed ‘impeachment inquiry’” created by an increasingly illogical Pelosi.
The same type of inquiry that Republicans could later capitalize on, given her willingness to go there first.
Bear in mind that Pelosi launched an impeachment inquiry over one phone call, versus dozens upon dozens of bank records, text messages, whistleblower testimonies, and other forms of evidence collected by the GOP over the course of “months” regarding Biden.
Little wonder that McCarthy had a rather salient reply to inquiries on whether or not he was being hypocritical, given his past criticism of Pelosi.
“I’m not, because she changed the precedent … I warned her not to do it that way in the process. And that’s what she did; that’s what we did,” McCarthy remarked smoothly.
Precisely. Except the Republicans did so with a whole lot more evidence …
