House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared on national television on Sunday to declare that President Donald Trump is guilty of impeachable offenses, claiming his actions are “so much worse” than what former President Richard Nixon did.
The California Democrat also expressed dismay over Trump not resigning like Nixon did, even saying the president is insecure about being an “imposter” — this from the U.S. government official second in the presidential line of succession.
Appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Pelosi was asked if President Trump would have an opportunity to face his accusers in the Democrats’ dog and pony impeachment show trial — before answering, Pelosi clarified that this was a reference to the CIA employee who filed a complaint about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president.
“I will make sure he does not intimidate the whistleblower,” Pelosi said “The president can come before the committee and speak all the truth that he wants … He has every opportunity to make his case.”
The assertion tramples on the concept of due process, but then, that has been a consistent factor all along in the Democrats’ effort to take out Trump.
“But it’s really a sad thing,” Pelosi added. “What the president did was so much worse than even what Richard Nixon did. At some point, Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue.”
Pelosi’s remark on “protecting” the whistleblower comes amid reports that this official, who has ties to former Vice President Joe Biden, reached out to Rep. Adam Schiff’s staff on the House Intel Committee before filing an official complaint.
Schiff was adamant that the whistleblower will not testify, going so far as to reject a request by House Republicans to let the CIA official testify publicly in the impeachment inquiry.
Despite the reports that the whistleblower contacted his staff, Schiff claimed last week that he doesn’t know the identity of this person.
“I do not know the identity of the whistleblower,” he said. “And I’m determined to make sure that identity is protected.”
Democrats continue to hide behind the U.S. Constitution in the partisan attempt to unseat a duly elected president, even calling a campaign that’s been referred to by some Republican lawmakers as a coup d’état “patriotic.”
This was seen when Pelosi was asked if Democrats had a good week last week, as they took their secret impeachment inquisition from behind closed doors in the basement of the U.S. Capitol and went before cameras.
Pelosi said “the American people have had a good week,” never mind that no evidence was produced in the first two days of hearings to justify impeachment.
“I think truth has had a good week,” she continued. “I think patriotism has had a good week. And I think the Constitution has had a good week. I don’t think the president has had a good week.”
