Pelosi claims it would be ‘harmful to unity’ for Congress to drop impeachment effort

Many Republicans have argued that the congressional Democrats’ pursuit of impeachment against former President Donald Trump will stand in the way of healing a deeply divided nation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), however, defended the push to impeach and convict Trump against arguments that doing so would undermine President Joe Biden’s call for political unity. According to Fox News, her remarks came on Thursday — one day after Biden’s inauguration — in response to related questions from reporters.

“The fact is the president of the United States committed an act of incitement of insurrection,” Pelosi asserted, in reference to Trump’s rhetoric ahead of a Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

“That’s not how you unify”

In reaction to the GOP argument that the nation should move on, the speaker alleged that it could be “harmful to unity” for Congress to drop the impeachment effort.

“I don’t think it’s very unifying to say, ‘Oh, let’s just forget it and move on,'” Pelosi said, according to Fox. “That’s not how you unify.”

Instead, the speaker said she is “more concerned about the damage that [the rioters] did to our staff, to our colleagues in the Congress, to the custodial staff in the Capitol of the United States.”

Pelosi said it was the legislative branch’s “responsibility to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” adding that she intends to do just that.

“Just because [Trump is] 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 free card because some people think we should make nice and forget that people died here on Jan. 6,” Pelosi concluded.

“Nothing I see in the Constitution”

Her counterpart in the Senate, Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), similarly explained the perceived need for a trial in remarks earlier in the week.

“After what he has done, the consequences of which we were all witness to, Donald Trump should not be eligible to run for office ever again,” he said, according to Breitbart.

While some Republicans have expressed some support for at least hearing arguments in a Senate trial, others — including Sen. Ron Johnson (WI) — are clearly against the idea.

“Let the voters decide whether they want President Trump to run again,” the Republican lawmaker said of rumors that Trump might mount a 2024 re-election bid. “There’s nothing I see in the Constitution that allows you to impeach a president after he’s already left office.”

    2. She can not make a rational decision. She is and always has been so full of hate of Trump she must have a terrible life with no peace from God. They started out trying to frame Trump before he was even elected even though they knew it was all a lie. We may not live to see it but God will see that justice will be coming to all those who are pulling their crap. They won’t like it.

  1. I think it would be a harmful for the Democratics to impeached any one that has done as much for his Country and the American people as President Trump as done for our Country.

    1. What they accuse Trump of is what they are doing! Pelosi is in charge of the capital security! Now you know why she is saying it was Trump that started this! Why were there only a few? Why did she fire the top security chief ! She blames everyone but herself!they knew three weeks before the rally that it was coming! So she had The DC mayor not to bring in the guard it let the BLM and Antifa in.
      That is how the FBI find them through facial recognition. A complete set- up just like the phone call hoax! Truth comes out how that Fiani Hill was behind the hoax and she was under oath and lied!

  6. Pelosi, stop its time for you to get back to work . Like what you were but in office for, and its not your hatred of Trump. Pelosi go and look at you district in Calif.. it needs alot of work. Stop destroying America .

  7. This woman is delusional. She thinks like Schiff…if I say it enough times, it will come true! We need to expel ALL the democrats from office at this point. I don’t think any of them have a clue what they’re doing to our country, other than selling it and lining their pockets.

    1. Don’t forget the republicans rhinos . They need to go too. I say get rid of the whole bunch of them and start over.

  8. pelosi, do your real job. TRUMP is gone. why are you still hateful. it’s over, I feel sorry for you that you are frightened of Him.

    1. She’s frightened of him, she’s the one who is terrorizing the people of this country. She needs to be forced to have a mental evaluation. Her kind of hate is exhausting. We are tired of this same old song just a different day.

  9. Nancy Pelosi is as crazy as a bat! Destroying individuals and their jobs wont ingratiate.citizens to Pelosi nor Biden!!! It will do he exact opposite. Already Pelosi, Biden and the corrupt Democrat leadership have lost something like 8 million jobs and those citizens wont support Pelosi nor Biden…you can count on that…

    1. Remember when you disparage some one you are pointing a finger at that person. In order to point a finger you have to fold 3 fingers, which end up pointing at you. try it.

  10. “UNITY”????? “UNIFY”????? NO…. YOU $H!T-HEADS KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THAT!!!! NOBODY IS FALLING FOR THE “DEEP STATE” BULL$H!T ANYMORE!!!! TRUMP DIDN’T DRAIN THE SWAMP BUT; HE EXPOSED US TO WHO DWELLS IN THE SWAMP (RINO’S INCLUDED)…. FVCK U!!!!! please do not post moderators…

  11. Hasn’t this Congress wasted enough of the taxpayers’ money. It’s sad…we put up with criminals disrupting the Kavanaugh hearings, not a word. We put up with burning down cities, killing innocent citizens and policemen, not a word. We put up with a fraudulent election, not a word. President Trump has a peaceful protest and a few criminals, not Trump supporters, stormed the Capitol and now we want to impeach again. You wasted $40 million dollars that belong to American taxpayers on a hoax you knew from the beginning was a lie. When are these people going to be held accountable? Stop this nonsense and do something productive for America!!!!! Pelosi you need to resign. You’re a disgrace to our country!

    1. An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.
      Proverbs 29:22

      The plot to create distrust and alienate won’t work against a president whose already proven himself faithful. His legacy remains.

    2. We all know that no one will be held accountable (Clapper, Brennan, Comey, Clinton, Rice, Holder, Pelosi, Schumer, obammer, Strock, Lerner, et al

  12. WHAT is she so afraid of? WHY does she hate him so much? Never in my born days have I seen one person with such a vendetta for another.

  13. I certainly hope we can stop this carnage of leftist demorats. Time for gop wimps to get a spine like the new women gop just elected.

  14. I think the presidential and Georgia Senate elections were undermined by the Democrats using the Mail-in voting fraud. The ONLY solution is to GO BACK and re-elect either Trump or Biden and have the Military over see the election. The way things are now Biden and the Democrats will finish tearing the country apart and that will lead to civil unrest like never before. Everything Biden and the Democrats have no solutions and will lead to more festering of this divide in the country. Conservatives have just about had enough! The November elections were filled with Democratic Fraud and have NOT been investigated. The November election MUST be made right! There must be a new election from November 3rd on without the mail in fraud that caused this mess. If not I fear for the future of this country. Pray for our leaders to make this decision and FIX this fraud that happened in November 2020.

  15. We now have a den of thieves and liars in the White House. They are greedy, powerhungrey demon infested garbage and half this country put them there. Now with many loosing their jobs and the border and our country about to be invaded exactly what can the true Americans look forward to? If those demonrats thought they will get the best of what is left in our country think again! !!! Those of of who know the our President Trump knows and has a plan ..we are not a cult but PATRIOTS who love our country so BEWARE!!!

  16. The Democrats don’t care about the constitution or unifying the country. They are so sacred that when President Trump or whomever he backs in 2022 and 2024 they know his followers will back. The Democrats only option is to try to remove him.

  17. Oh so now we can impeach a president after they’ve Left office that makes Bill clinton and Obama next what a great country we live in

  18. Democrats look in the mirror. The person who should b impeached is our new vice-president Kamala Harris. Harris willfully on national TV proclaimed the rioters over the summer had started a movement that she said, she supported and encouraged them to continue! Harris was personally involved in fund raising to bail out the looters some of which have a criminal record, all in the name of justice! Huh! Harris never once condemned the violence, destruction, and deaths incurred. AND Trump should be impeached. In Biden’s own words, “Come on man, give me a break”. Wake up America!!!!

  19. Don’t these idiots realize that, if they can do this, the next time the Republicans control both houses they will be able to impeach both Obama & Biden?

  20. Now it’s very obvious Nancy Pelosi manipulating everything and Schumer follows. She’s simply showing her hatred for Trump. She ought to be arrested for Treason. It’s really time for her and the rest of those corruptions to removed! The truth shall be told! We Americans need to be heard

    1. The only way to rein in the federal government is to disband the USA and make each state it’s own country and let each state establish it’s own laws and constitutions. For the first year, let people move freely to another “country” if they don’t like where they are. After that, they have to go through immigration like anyone else. If you are living in a blue state and think red, then move, same for red states and blues moving out. At that point, those who want to murder with abortion can up to and hey, if they want, even past birth and those who are opposed to abortion can restrict it. Same goes with every issue, just pick a side and live with it.

  21. Biden is a pathetic old man that is being led around like a dog on a leash. He is not legal and we all know it. The left is the party of corruption.

  22. StOp ThE B.s. AnD LeTs GeT oN wIhW rUnNiNg ThE cOuNtRy.
    Seriously, let’s get over the Trump issue. We have a new President and power system, WHAT does Pelosi want? 2024 is a long time way, who knows where any of us will be. If Trump wants to run for public office, let him! One vindictive person (NP) should not act as his Accuser, Judge & Jury. PLEASE PUT A STOP TO THIS WASTE OF VALUABLE TAXPAYERS HARD EARNED MONEY.
    **I personally had a longstanding vendetta against a former friend. I finally turned to another friend for advice. He told me “Let It Go”, I did and am very happy that I did, I’m much better for it! NANCY – LET IT GO! NONE OF US NEED THE GREIF OF FIGHTING EACH OTHER!

  23. We should be investigating Nancy Pelosi before any impeachment trials or prosecutions or anything else!!! This is way too HUGE and way too IMPORTANT!! DRAIN that swamp!! What a corrupt person she is!!

  24. All above posts are right on target! Piglosi HAS set herself up as judge, jury, and if possible, executioner! She has over stepped her authority, abused her office of speaker, and should be removed from congress. And—— ANY republicans who vote for impeachment of President Trump BE AWARE, you will NOT be re elected in 2022! This farce must be stopped NOW! Enough already! Do your job Piglosi, or get the hell out!

  25. I think that Nancy Pelosi should be “impeached” and should not be granted her salary for life (and no one else should be either)!!! These last 4 years it seems as if Trump was the only one making things happen to better the economy and our nation while many of the others who are supposed to be keeping our country great only tried to get rid of Trump!! and did nothing for the country!! Those who were active in the “impeachment” issues should not have received a salary (and should have to pay it back if they got it). Very few in this country receive the salaries that congress gets and receives it while not doing their jobs!! It will be interesting to hear the peoples reaction when they see how some decisions will raise the cost of living to the “normal” population of the country.

  26. Democrats dont want to serve the people and resent anyone who inspire or encourage the people . Jezebel ( Nancy ) Will receive her just reward , when one finger points three fingers points back !

  27. this woman is sick and out of contol time to put her to pature she is the reason for the ruchus January 6th they just wanted be there to see teh devil at work because of her lies, she knows as well as anyone does the election was rigged soemthing wa s definietly wrong withthe support evryone ha shad for TRUMP SINCE HE TOOK OFFICE HAS UPSET THIS woamn she spent four years on this vandeta of hers and has got yo all etingoutof her hands its enough to push anyone over the edge, these people that were arrested were not just low lives from the streets these were people with military backing and law enforcement that are harding working people andwant thwere rights and positions heard w ealso work and fight for our country and vote for our elected officials and have seen her humilate and bad mouth our PRESIDENT HER PRESIDENT FROM DAY ONE and the nerve of her to not take blame fro pushing these individuals over teh edge they were defending the rights of there PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES for a recount an evaluation of tis election why has she fought against that if she is so sure it was a fair and jsut voting why neot doing everything to verify that because isnot alone in that call , when person from Georgia said not thousands it was a couple of double votes well how could that be ???? and in mchagen the man bornin 1902 who pwudlve ben 118 yrs old well he wasnt alive he died in 1984 theres another small example, but it happened which shows it could happen ENOUGH REASON FOR A RECALL AND COMPLETE INVESTIGATION the DEMOCRATS AE COVERING SOMETHING UP AND IF THEY SUCCEED IN AN IMPEACHMENT THERE WILL BE A CIVIL WAR / or third world war but PEOPLE WILL NOT TAKE THIS SITTING DOWN this is not communist country we all have rights not just NANCY POLOSI GOD help her she is pure vindictive evil
