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.

Even though this event took place in Kentucky, the jury selection for the George Floyd trial will take place today in Minnesota. As you’d imagine, the left is already raging because…they’re the left. What happened below is just a small snippet of what we’ll see when the officers accused of killing Floyd are exonerated. Check this out, via PTNewsNetwork: Louisville protesters have reached a new low, verbally attacking families and small children as they attempt to enter a cheerleading competition. Louisville protesters attempted to lead a protest caravan thoughout the city, but only made it about one block before Louisville Metro Police Department officers intercepted the vehicles shutting down the caravan. For several hours, the protesters attempted to regroup, finally stopping infront of the Louisville International Conventional Center, where a cheerleading competition was taking place.

‘Military Rape’ Song Is Absolutely ‘Hilarious’ Biden AG Nominee Merrick Garland Once Wrote

Where’s #MeToo!?

Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney general is under a bit of fire for something he wrote all the way back in 1976 while he was a college student. This is yet another example of cancel culture, except the left won’t care about this issue because Garland is a liberal. Have to protect the liberal from the evil Republicans, right!? From Breitbart: President Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as a college student at Harvard University wrote in a review of a musical that a song about rape was one of the play’s “hilarious group numbers.” Here’s what Garland wrote back in 1976… A combination of factors, however, keep the vocal problems from becoming disastrous. Most important are the Jones-Schmidt songs themselves, simple and engaging melodies with a few tender ballads like “Try to Remember” and some hilarious group numbers like “it Depends on what You Pay,” which provides a shopping list of rapes for sale (e.g. “the military rape–it’s done with drums and a great brass band.”) Here are some of the lyrics… We’ve the obvious open schoolboy rape, With little mandolins and perhaps a cape. The rape by coach; it’s little in request. The rape by day, but the rape by night is best. Just try to see it. And you will soon agree, señors, Why Invite regret, When you can get the sort of rape You’ll never ever forget. You can get the rape emphatic. You can get the rape polite. You can get the rape with Indians: A very charming sight. You can get the rape on horseback; They’ll all say it’s new and gay. So you see the sort of rape Depends on what you pay. It depends on what you Pay. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahCjK6RjR88 Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
