Pelosi Claims Trump Is ‘Crying Out’ to Be Impeached, Denies That Party Is Split on Issue

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) denied that the Democrats were split on impeaching President Donald Trump despite the fact that she believes he is “crying out” to be impeached.

As IJR previously reported, several prominent Democrats, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), and one Republican — Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) — have called for the impeachment of Trump.

Pelosi, however, has been pumping the brakes on impeachment, calling the issue “divisive” and noting that she intends to let her committee chairs — including Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) — continue with their own investigations before pulling the trigger on impeachment proceedings.

This patient approach hasn’t been that attractive to some Democrats who want to hit the gas on removing Trump. Several reports have noted the infighting between Democrats on the issue, highlighting a key fracture in the party.

Despite the reports of infighting, Pelosi tried to maintain that her party is unified on waiting for the committees to act even though the speaker claimed that Trump is “crying out” to be impeached.

She scolded the press for continuing to cover the division among Democrats, claiming they’re covering a story that isn’t “real” after reports claimed the party met to discuss impeachment prior to their meeting with Trump on Wednesday.

Watch Pelosi’s impeachment comments:

“The White House is just crying out for impeachment. That’s why he flipped yesterday because he was hoping — somehow or other, you all have a story that isn’t real. You want to believe that there is all this unease in our caucus that simply isn’t the truth. We have respect for the diversity of opinion in our caucus, and I say to the caucus our diversity is our strength, our unity is our power, and we have unity in our caucus.”

She claimed Trump was disappointed after “he didn’t see this rush to impeachment coming out of our caucus.”

Despite claiming that Trump is involved in a “cover-up” and is “crying out” to be impeached, Pelosi maintained that they will not be starting the impeachment process anytime soon.

Obama laughed and said impeach me. When he knew that with his 34 votes in the senate he could not be impeached. The democrat are to stupid to do the math. The too can not get 2/3 vote in the senate.

Who would vote for any crazy demoncrats is beyond me, they are really the party of death and communism! They truly don’t care about anyone and they certainly are openly racist, Pelosi leading the way with anti-semitism! Pelosi is drunk most of the time, and she needs to step down as she cannot seem to control her party! She refuses to work with the republicans, and from day one, they wanted to bring impeachment proceedings against our duly elected President! This craziness has gone on for way too long, we republicans accepted the outcome of Obama’s terms, whether we liked… Read more »

Pelosi is doing her best to rid DJT from the presidency. Then she can get rid of VP Pence and she will hold the power of the presidency. Do you notice how her face lights up whenever she holds the gavel in her hand. The woman is totally of her rocker if she believes she will ever sit at the desk in the oval office.

There is NO! Honor among thieves even those thieves who try to “Steal” an election after the election. The party of Death and discord is imploding before the eyes of all Americans who have eyes to see.
