#EndorseThis: Why Speaker Pelosi Urges Impeachment Now
“The president leaves us no choice” other than to proceed with articles of impeachment, said Nancy Pelosi this morning as she asked the chairs of the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees to draw up the fateful bill. Reluctant as the canny Speaker was to institute impeachment proceedings for months, it is worth listening to her now as she explains why the threat to democracy posed by Donald Trump requires this constitutional response.
Pelosi’s historic statement is only five minutes, but she is thorough and eloquent. Republicans who claim that she is reckless or eager to impeach Trump are obviously, consciously lying. She knows the risks and yet is determined to fulfill her duty – so help her God.
