VIDEO: Clinton Era Nancy Pelosi Said GOP Impeaching President Was ‘Impeaching Him With A Vengeance’

This is coming back to bite her.

Current Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi once spoke about the act of impeachment back in 1998 during Bill Clinton’s time in office when he was being impeached for lying under oath, saying that the GOP’s act at the time was not about fairness, but about vengeance, the very same thing she’s now being accused of herself.

Her many critics have wasted no time jumping on this particular statement, using it against her in what appears to be yet another witch hunt involving the current commander-in-chief.

“Today, the Republican majority is not judging the president with fairness, but impeaching him with a vengeance,” Pelosi said on December 18, 1998. “In the investigation of the president, fundamental principles which Americans hold dear — privacy, fairness, checks and balances — have been seriously violated. And why Because we are here today because the Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton. And until the Republicans free themselves of this hatred, our country will suffer.”

Pelosi’s words stand out after it was announced this week that the Democrats are moving ahead with their plans to impeach Trump over a phone call that he had with Ukraine, which Pelosi condemned after admitting that she had not even read the transcript of the phone call.

Here’s a transcript of the speech from CNN:

Thank you. Today, the Republican majority is not judging the president with fairness, but impeaching him with a vengeance. In the investigation of the president, fundamental principles which Americans hold dear — privacy, fairness, checks and balances — have been seriously violated. And why?

PELOSI: Because we are here today because the Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton. And until the Republicans free themselves of this hatred, our country will suffer.

I rise to oppose the unfair motions which all for the removal of the president of the United States from office, and in doing so, wish to point out some differences between the investigation of the president and the investigation of Newt Gingrich.

The first principle in our investigation of Newt Gingrich was that at the moment we found exculpatory information, it would be reported immediately to the accused and be made public.

The independent counsel knew that the president was exonerated with Travelgate, Whitewater, and Filegate and he held that information until the hearing, indeed until after the election. This was not fair. Indeed, it is the responsibility of any prosecutor to immediately release information that is exculpatory.

This is not about — So it’s not about Whitewater, it’s not about Travelgate, and it’s not about Filegate. It’s about sex. It’s about a punishment searching for a crime that doesn’t exist.

In the Gingrich probe, we drew every inference in favor of the accused. But in this case, it took a closing question from a member of the grand jury to Monica Lewinsky to say, “Is there anything you would like to add to your prior testimony?” for Monica Lewinsky to respond, and I quote, “No one ever asked me to lie, and I was never promised a job for my silence.”

The point is why didn’t the independent counsel elicit that important testimony? In the Gingrich case, we spent a major part of our report explaining the laws which were violated. The Judiciary Committee has not proven perjury, it’s not even defined perjury. Instead, it has kept the subject intentionally vague.

Whether one is violating a marital vow or some other aspect of his personal behavior, it is not an impeachable offense. You have not proven perjury.

In the Gingrich probe, we had a bipartisan unanimous vote in our subcommittee and an almost unanimous vote on the floor because we built consensus and we tried to bring the matter to closure.

Pelosi and other Democrats in Congress have been long calling for Trump to be impeached and this latest inquiry is the summation of that call, hoping to push the words beyond mere rhetoric into authentic action that will no doubt please the Democratic base and, as she and others hope, drive them to the polls to vote for them in 2020.

Video: Biden Can Put the ‘World Back Together,’ Says Failed POTUS Candidate John Kerry

Oh, is that right?

John Kerry failed as a presidential candidate and was arguably the worst secretary of state in modern times. That being said, Joe Biden apparently loves the guy. Go figure. At a recent event in Iowa, Kerry said something that nobody should say about any person – ever. Kerry said Biden can put the “world back together.” And yes, he was absolutely dead serious. WATCH: John Kerry: “Iowa, when you caucus in February, don’t just send a message. Send us a president. Send us a man who can put the world back together. Send us Joe Biden.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203035127166775296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203035127166775296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F Kerry clearly takes “stupid is as stupid does” to an entirely different level. The guy is just…I don’t know. It’s comical. From earlier that day… Question: “Mr. Vice President, how does it feel to have your friend with you?” Joe Biden: “It feels great to have my friend with me, I can’t think of anybody I’d rather have.” John Kerry: “I’m thrilled to be back in Iowa. I love it.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203019020959510528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203019020959510528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F If Biden is committing a gaffe, he’s not breathing. The guy thrives on making mistakes. The former VP recently did his best to explain the Second Amendment to his incredibly uninformed fanbase. He blabbered, “I believe in the second amendment but nobody says you can have a rounds — a magazine with a hundred clips in it — a hundred bullets in it. We protect geese more that we protect, no joke, you can only have three shotgun shells when you go shoot for geese. But, guess what, we protect geese better than we do our kids.” WATCH: [email protected] in New Hampshire: “We don’t have the courage to take on the NRA? We protect geese more than we protect, no joke you can only have 3 shotgun shells when you go shooting…

New York Police Officer Bites Into Sandwich, Finds a Razor Blade Stuffed In Between

Oh my goodness!!

There’s a 99% chance that this incident was 100% intentional. A person doesn’t just accidentally leave a razor blade right in the middle of a friggin’ sandwich. Who are we kidding? Is this not, if you really think about it, attempted murder? Shouldn’t it be treated that way, if proven the sandwich maker did what he or she did intentionally? What a shame. Why would anyone even want to be a police officer these days? It’s a lose-lose situation, with the mainstream media and Democrats constantly finding ways to tear them down. Thankfully, there still are brave men and women who are determined to uphold the rule of law and do their best to keep all of us safe. From New York Daily News: An NYPD cop got a sharp surprise when he bit into a sandwich at a Queens shop and cut his mouth on a rusty razor blade stuffed inside, police said. […] The cop, a 24-year veteran of the NYPD, cut the inside of his mouth on the razor as he chomped on the cheesesteak. He was taken to Nassau Community Medical Center for a minor wound. PHOTO: You have to be a special kind of person to support Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Of course, “special kind of person” can be substituted for ignorant – and should be. AOC supporters aren’t bright, plain and simple. Why this freshman Democrat continues to receive so much attention makes little sense, but she just keeps doing anti-American things and getting away with it. God willing, a conservative will end her political career come next November. Check out her latest ridiculousness, via New York Post: Close to a thousand anti-police protesters descended on Downtown Brooklyn Friday night, blocking traffic, vandalizing a city bus and shouting obscene insults at NYPD cops. The demonstration…
