Pelosi Does Not Think ‘It’s Very Unifying’ to ‘Move on’ From Trump Impeachment

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is not concerned about undermining the message of unity by moving forward with a Senate impeachment trial against former President Donald Trump.

During her press briefing on Thursday, a reporter asked Pelosi if she is worried impeachment could diminish the message of unity and alienate Republicans.

“No, I’m not worried about that. The fact is the president of the United States committed an act of incitement of insurrection. I don’t think it’s very unifying to say, ‘Oh, let’s just forget it and move on,'” Pelosi said.

She added, “That’s not how you unify. Joe Biden said it beautifully, ‘If we’re going to unite, you must remember,’ and we must, we must bring this. And look, that’s our responsibility, to uphold the integrity of the Congress of the United States.”

Pelosi explained Trump is not necessarily off the hook just because he left office.

“Just because he’s now gone — thank God — you don’t say to a president, ‘Do whatever you want in the last months of your administration. You’re going to get a get out of jail card free,’ because people think we should make nice, nice,” she continued.

Pelosi told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Tuesday that Trump “was a stain on our country,” as IJR reported.

She added, “He, in every respect, was unworthy to be president. Did not respect the office that held, and certainly, did not respect the office the rest of us hold as well.”

On Jan. 13, the House voted to impeach Trump for a second time, as IJR reported.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked if President Joe Biden should be convicted in the Senate.

“He’s going to leave it to the Senate to Democrats and Republicans to determine what the path forward should be,” she said during her appearance on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday.

Responses

  1. This old sea Hag needs to retire, drink her bottle of wine a night, pass out and leave us all alone. I’m tired of hearing her meandering updates and crazy hand gestures.

  2. In other news under Biden’s watch and not covered by any TV fake news media: nytimes.com/2021/01/21/us/protests-portland-seattle-biden.html

  3. Rep Pelosi, you ought to know that the impeachment is illegal – one because it is a lie and two because Trump has left office and by law you cannot do it.

  4. Pelosi, like all lying, cheating, corrupt Democrats, lies and the media will swear to it.

  5. Nancy’s not going anywhere. She was born and raised in a political family and she’s not scared of any loud mouth pushy schmuck who thinks she’ll back down to them. She never has and I’d bet she never will.
    There aren’t enough, or we need more, women like her to stand up to anyone and everyone! You know darn well if she were a man she’d be getting a lot less flack.
    I doubt Schumer or McConnell are treated better because people are still afraid of strong women.
    I think someone here may self-combust……..
    Try to be less angry

    1. You obviously didn’t vet your apparent idol well enough.
      The D’Alesandro family was a crime family for years in Baltimore. Anyone from MD in the 40s-50s knew the name. And were justifiably concerned. Tree meet apple.

  6. No matter where you stand on the impeachment, I think we should watch closely and be ready to call the fire department when Nancy self-combusts from hate.

  7. Only REPHUHKLICAN TRAITORS think it unifying to ignore the INSURRECTION against The United States Government incited by THE then TRAITOR-IN-CHIEF and enabled by sitting Rephuhklican U S legislators.
