Pelosi pushes back against reporters’ questions on impeachment: ‘Waste of time’

In the wake of a riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, it seems all Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) wanted to talk about was impeaching and removing then-President Donald Trump. But now that the matter is finally headed for a trial in the Senate, Pelosi has reportedly indicated she’s done talking about it.

“We don’t have to defend why [the impeachment trial] is necessary,” Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference Thursday, according to the Daily Caller. “They [House impeachment managers] are going to be there to present the case…and we don’t have to talk about who is going to be there or not cause we just don’t know.”

Pelosi also reportedly lashed out at a journalist who asked about the possibility that Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, would call witnesses from the FBI to testify about whether Trump indeed “incited” what Democrats have characterized as an “insurrection” at the Capitol.

“Your question is a waste of time,” she snapped, as the Daily Caller reported.

“Democrats are in a box”

Democrats contend that Trump was responsible for the unrest on Jan. 6 that resulted in multiple deaths, including one Capitol Police officer. But most Senate Republicans seem to believe the effort against the former president is moot now that he’s no longer in the White House.

According to The Hill, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania were the only GOP senators to vote in favor of moving forward with the trial, with the other 45 Republicans in the upper chamber agreeing with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) that it’s unconstitutional to impeach a private citizen.

Speaking with Fox News on Monday, Graham, for his part, said he thinks “every Republican sees the House [impeachment] process as an affront to the presidency and due process,” according to the New York Post.

“The second impeachment of Donald Trump is not wearing well over time,” Graham declared, according to the Post. “Democrats are in a box.”

“Open up that can of worms”

As a reporter alluded to Pelosi on Thursday, Graham has also publicly said that he is willing to call FBI agents to appear at Trump’s Senate trial, and the South Carolina senator has warned that their testimony could cast doubt on allegations that the former president’s speech led to the riot.

“There’s mounting evidence that the people came to Washington preplanned the attack before the president ever spoke,” Graham told Fox on Monday.

“If you open up that can of worms, we’ll want the FBI to come in and tell us about how people preplanned this attack and what happened with the security footprint of the Capitol,” the senator added. “You open up Pandora’s box if you call one witness.”

Fox reports that Trump’s second impeachment trial in the Senate is set to kick off next week.

  1. Mostly all Democrats and Several Republicans in the house and senate need to be impeached themselves Mitch Mc Connel, Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney this means you especially, so sit up and pat attention you all.

  2. Trump was the first current non-politician and the democrats do not want to see another bushman in control of the country.

    1. I’m with you, Gary!!!! GO FOR IT!! Can’t wait to see it all explode in their faces and, this time, they can’t blame Pres Trump for it!!! It will all land right in the laps of Pelosi, Schumer and the RINO’s!! Right where it belongs!! Bet they won’t want to talk about it then, either!!! LOL

  4. Piglosi needs to be impeached! She is a waste of the tax payers money! Her political antics are absurd, her “ rules” asinine, she is an affront to good Americans! She must be kicked out of congress!

      1. Well, guess it’s ‘better late than never’!! She and Biden have already set America on the path to destruction. A bit worried about ‘who’ will be replacing her though. Not much good ‘material’ within the party itself, for sure.

  5. The people of America need to recall 100% of the Dems holding an office, and the Republican RINOS.

    I love my Country and I Love my people no matter what race religion or creed. The Dems, Soros, Buffet, Obama, the Clintons, George Bush, and all of the Elites in Silicon Valley and across America should be held for Treason, the attempt to destroy America and create a Communistic Dictatorship. The people that voted for a Dem should read about the Russian Revolution and the French Revolution. That is exactly what will transpire if the Dems are allowed to destroy my beloved country and my people.

  6. Something needs to be done before our country is gone. Our Government, RIGHT NOW, is the biggest threat facing our Nation and the sick part is, is that they are not hiding it, they don’t care. We can’t trust the FBI, DOJ none of them. Laws are being ignored. Criminals are are not being punished and now they want to take our guns away.

    1. And to think—they’ve only been in office a couple of weeks!!! Just imagine what they can do in 4years!!! Heck–a few months aught to do it!!

  7. Democrats don’t know the constitution they take the oath to uphold the constitution but if it was a marriage vow they would have been divorced a long time ago they just say the words and don’t hear or know what the constitution even says they think like Obama that it’s a flawed document get them out

    1. We need to reconstruct Congress with good legal citizens who put our Nation first and protect our Nation and Constitution. Finish the wall and keep out criminals and people who won’t fit because all they want us for us to pay for their costs and threaten our freedoms.

  8. We know why they were there! The Government did not answer any of the questions about the possible election fraud. They ignored all the evidence and just stated there wasn’t enough fraud to change the outcome. Thousands of sworn affidavits were ignored as was the claim of switched votes from Biden to Trump by the Dominon voting machines. They failed to do an honest forensic investigation into sworn affidavits by experts that these machines did switch votes. Even Biden himself stated, “We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the History of American Politics!” This should have been enough to launch a complete investigation into the possibility there was fraud! Since no one was listening the people went to the Capital to have their voices heard. That is why they were there!

    1. You are correct but it has come out that several people who were arrested were registered Democrat. Some weren’t even registered to vote. I don’t condone what happened on Jan. 6th in any way and yes, there were some Trump supporters there but most, I feel, who entered the building were BLM and ANTIFA with MAGA hats on and carried Trump flags and I will guarantee this, some Democrats in Congress and the Senate knew what was going to happen before it happened.

      1. I agree because they funded the payouts for BLM and ANTIFA to be there . So they could make President Trump look bad. Pelosi has been after Trump since he was elected . When will she stop the madness? All of the EO that Biden has signed in 2 weeks is crazy. I believe he is not even reading any if these orders. He is told to just sign them. Last night Biden was even asking where did all the jobs go ? These people in Congress need to be stopped . Thry hold too much power. They don’t care about the American people.

        1. I know what you’re saying. My biggest stressor is, what can we do? We all see what is being done and the damage Biben has already done and its only been a couple of weeks. What do we do?

      2. According to one Trump supporter who witnessed all this–Trump supporters even tried to ‘stop’ terrorists from entering the Capitol. They didn’t want that to happen!! They were overpowered in their attempts. This man, a ‘veteran’ I think, even tried then to protect elderly women and children and get them to safety!! That these ‘good’ people were labeled ‘terrorists’ by the press, is disgusting. If you’re going to ‘report the News’, at least try to do it accurately.

    2. Completely correct! If we don’t do something soon we will not have a Nation or any freedoms. This will become another Germany who believed Hitler and his promises. And he used box cars to transport those he did not like to Gas Chambers. GOD BLESS OUR NATION. We are a Christian society.

    3. We need to reconstruct Congress with good legal citizens who put our Nation first and protect our Nation and Constitution. Finish the wall and keep out criminals and people who won’t fit because all they want us for us to pay for their costs and threaten our freedoms.

  9. Please voters, get that pure evil, Satan worshiping Commie witch out…she is a menise to humanity and to life itself. She is personally responsible for the death of over 60 MILLION innocent babies and counting – she is a cold blooded genocidal terrorist and she is destroying our very existence and our country – America.

  10. Not to worry folks. Trump has this all under control!
    We all know how Brilliant he is, he has never ceased to amaze us
    And He has never let us down! Just relax and stay Tuned!

    Start following Brad Barton and the Triump News Network!

      1. Thanks, Sandra. I, too, am still ‘wa*ting’ and, seeing all the d*amage being done–it’s not easy!!! Still, all in good time, I’d guess. We do need to ‘h*ng in there, though’!! Take care, everyone.

    1. Please, that’s all I read after the fraud vote, Trump has a plan. If he had a plan then Biden wouldn’t be in the White House. Right now, Trump has no investigative agency helping to expose the fraudsters. The FBI.and DOJ are still hiding Hunter’s laptop.

    1. Had to laugh!!! I gave you advice on ‘how to get posted’ and they didn’t ‘post it’!!! ROFL I often get ‘k*cked out’ because they didn’t like what I said. I found that if you ‘sp*ll things ‘we*rdly’, the computer will post it. Now, I need to find out if they’ll ‘p*st’ this!!! 😀 I didn’t follow my ‘ow* adv*ce’ the last time.

  11. Pat Toomey is a joke. He does not represent Pa at all. For him it’s just a position. He knows the voting system is corrupt. A lot of voters received two mail in ballots, besides going to the polls to vote. It happened all over Pa.

  12. I cannot believe ALL the Democratic Liberal Senators believe this should take place, even one (1).
    Pelosi/Schumer must have them by the short hairs not caring how many Americans are without and have to watch/listen to this nonsense and waste of dollars.
    Even SCOTUS won’t get involved with this fiasco of Hate from the Left/RINOs.

  13. Please see Mike Lindell’s ‘Absolute Proof’ on OAN for all the forensic election fraud evidence needed to prove 100% how Europe destroyed the United States election system. America has fallen with the largest election cyber-warfare attack in history and the intelligence services FBI/CIA refusing to protect America and her US citizens (each intelligence agency has used the same hack in other elections and fear exposure). European ‘bad actors’ like China. Iran, Germany, Italy etc. have chosen Biden/Harris in the spirit of the Obaama administration to preside over the down fall of America (40 executive orders destroying countless jobs and weakening America soviernty in the first week).
    With our Career, Professional ‘ruling-elite politicians in the Swamp and the individual state attorney generals in America (see MI state attorney general), I have little confidence of America’s recovery. Good News – some of the democraps voting for Biden will be impacted first – see XL Pipline’s unemployed pipefitters union members.
