Pelosi Edges Ever Closer to Impeachment with 'Constitutional Crisis' Declaration

Linkedin Share

The hysteria is very, very real, and the Washington Swamp is practically percolating because of it.

President Trump has been working overtime to thwart the best efforts of democrats to undermine his presidency.  Unfortunately for Trump, much of what Congress is attempting to do, however distasteful and wasteful that it is, is likely protected by the Constitution.

This makes Trump’s rebukes of the processes a troubling piece of optics.  On one hand, the President is defending himself against attacks that are undoubtedly driven by partisan politics, but his defenses are triggering some alarming language to emerge on the left side of the aisle.

For instance, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has now declared that the United States is in a “constitutional crisis”.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that the United States was in a “constitutional crisis” and warned that House Democrats might move to hold more Trump administration officials in contempt of Congress if they continued their refusals to comply with committee subpoenas.

Speaking to reporters in the Capitol, Ms. Pelosi said she agreed with Representative Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, who said Wednesday that the nation was in a constitutional crisis after his committee recommended the House hold Attorney General William P. Barr in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over an unredacted version of the special counsel’s report, along with the report’s underlying evidence.

Her language was unmistakably sensational.

“The administration has decided they are not going to honor their oath of office,” she said.

Ms. Pelosi said Democrats would bring the contempt citation to the floor for a vote of the full House “when we are ready.”

The phrasing mimics much of what we’ve heard from the mainstream media as of late, further exacerbating the sensationalism that is driving our nation apart.

Pelosi has previously declared her intent to avoid impeachment at all costs – a position that will likely become untenable should the rhetoric remain at this alarming volume.
