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.

New Reports Say Number Of NY Nursing Home Deaths Much Higher Than Reported

Published

on

A brand new report has hit the news cycle, and it’s not at all good news for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The report alleges that the number of folks who died at nursing homes of the coronavirus, which were mostly due to horrific policy decisions by Cuomo himself, are much higher than first reported. Cuomo has taken a lot of heat for his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic and for decisions that led to the deaths of thousands of at-risk individuals in nursing home facilities. The left has been attempting to spin the situation and make Cuomo out to be some sort of hero, but nobody is buying that garbage. Check out the details from The Daily Wire: “New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount,” the Associated Press reported. “Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.” According to the AP, on paper, the nursing home only reported a total of four deaths from the coronavirus out of its nearly 150-bed facility. However, the true number is 21 dead, most of whom were transported out of the facility and to hospitals before they died. “That statistic that could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600,” the AP continued. “But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing a better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.” Keep in mind that New York City became a hot bed for COVID-19 infections,…

Coronavirus Relief Negotiations Hit Yet Another Snag, This Time The Obstacle Is State Aid

Published

on

Trump administration officials and leaders within the Democratic Party continue to remain at a stalemate when it comes to negotiating another coronavirus relief package, as money for state and local governments appears as yet another snag in the negotiations. Of course, the left has also been trying to politicize this relief package and use it to get some wish list items of their passed into law, which is also not helping things. As of now, both sides in the debate over the relief package are bickering about whether or not states should receive more funding in the next round of emergency funding, and if so, how much is appropriate. Here’s more on this from Fox News: Negotiators are trying to close the divide between the Senate Republicans’ $1 trillion HEALS Act, which includes no new funding for states, and the House’s $3.4 trillion HEROES Act, which allocates about $1 trillion in new funding for state and local governments. The stalemate puts at risk potentially trillions of dollars in aid for families, businesses and the U.S. economy, including a fresh round of $1,200 stimulus checks, extra unemployment aid for millions of out-of-work Americans, $100 billion to help reopen schools and relief for cash-strapped state and local governments. There were no signs of a détente on Monday, with each party blaming the other for the stalled-out discussions. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, one of the lead negotiators in the relief package, referred to the Democrats’ request for $1 trillion for state aid “an absurd number,” stating there’s “plenty” of cash available already for the governments. “We’re not going to give a trillion dollars for state and local,” he said in an interview with CNBC. “That’s just not a reasonable approach.” President Trump has also made his feelings clear on this number, and as…
