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

This is coming back to bite her.

Published

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.

More from The Daily Wire:

“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.

SEE IT: Border Crisis at Breaking Point, Prompting TX Governor to Take Drastic Action

Things are turning troublesome in the Lone Star State.

Published

Despite constant pleas and pressure, the Biden administration continues to be unwilling to take action on the southern border, where a humanitarian crisis of nigh-biblical proportions is unfolding.

Would-be Americans from all corners of the globe are rushing the American border in Texas, overwhelming the facilities and authorities there to receive them. Compounding the issue is that fact that these migrants are largely eschewing the official naturalization process and checkpoints, and arriving whenever and wherever they can.

As border czar, Vice President Kamala Harris has been largely absent from the fray, opting to do as-of-yet-unknown work on climate change, claiming that this is a “root cause” of illegal immigration.

Now, as the border is being stormed Texas Governor Greg Abbott has had to make some desperate decisions. 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott deployed a contingent of Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Highway Patrol troopers to stop the free flow of mostly Haitian migrants from crossing the Rio Grande. The force of nearly 1,000 troopers and National Guard soldiers entered the makeshift migrant camp housing nearly 15,000 migrants under the Del Rio International Bridge.

On Saturday afternoon, the troopers used vehicles and barbed wire to block access to a weir dam stretching the Rio Grande. The migrants utilized the dam as the primary crossing point from Mexico into the makeshift camp.

Aerial photos demonstrated just what a mess the situation has become in the absence of any federal action.

The undeniable negligence of the Biden administration on this issue has been both confounding and infuriating for a majority of Americans, many of whom have publicly expressed their concerns over the capabilities of the White House over the course of the last several months.

Gabby Petito’s Fiancé on the Run in Florida Swamps, Say Authorities

Should Laundrie escape or take his own life, there could be little hope left of bringing Gabby home.

Published

on

The saga surrounding the disappearance of Gabby Petito continues to evolve this weekend, in strange and ever-more dramatic ways, and it could lead to yet another layer of tragedy.

Petito and her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, were on a cross-country road trip when her family lost contact with her.  Soon after, Laundrie returned home to Florida, sans Gabby, and her parent promptly filed a missing persons report.  Laundrie, unconscionably, refused to cooperate with investigators who were now looking for Petito.

Then, in a twist that could add exponential sorrow to the story, Laundrie has gone on the run after leaving his parents’ home on Tuesday – something that his family did not reveal to authorities until Friday.

Now, the hunt is on for the prime suspect in Petito’s disappearance.

Police spent Saturday searching a “vast” Florida preserve near the Laundrie family’s home after they said late Friday his whereabouts were now unknown, too. Late Saturday, police said they were suspending the search due to darkness and would begin again Sunday morning.

“Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown,” an attorney for the family said Friday. “The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now the FBI is now looking for both Gabby and Brian.”

Laundrie, 23, has not been seen since Tuesday, according to police and the family’s lawyer.

North Port Police said Saturday morning that they were searching for Laundrie in “the vast Carlton Reserve,” a 24,565-acre preserve north of his home in North Port.

If Laundrie were to evade authorities, or end his own life while on the run, there could be little hope left of finding out what exactly happened to Gabby Petito.
