Pelosi pushes impeachment in CBS interview: ‘This president is guilty’

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and fellow House Democrats have been vocal in recent days about their hopes to force President Donald Trump’s removal from office, either by convincing Vice President Mike Pence and a majority of Trump’s Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment or, failing that, by taking matters into their own hands with another round of impeachment proceedings.

But with just days left in the president’s term, many have been left wondering: What’s the point of all this? According to author and PJ Media columnist Tyler O’Neil, Pelosi recently made her strategy crystal clear.

In an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes that aired Sunday, Pelosi was pressed by host Leslie Stahl on the “a possibility that after all of this, there’s no punishment, no consequence, and he could run again for president,” O’Neil reported.

In response, Pelosi quipped, “And that’s one of the motivations that people have for advocating for impeachment.”

“He has to pay a price”

Calls for Trump’s removal have plagued most of his presidency, but Democrats have ramped up the rhetoric in recent days in response to a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday perpetrated by supporters of the president. The attack left at least five dead, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer, according to Reuters.

Pelosi, for her part, has said Trump is responsible for inciting the violence, which transpired following a rally for the president in Washington where he gave what Reuters described as a “fiery speech” earlier Wednesday.

“This president is guilty of inciting [an] insurrection. He has to pay a price for that,” Pelosi told 60 Minutes on Sunday. “I like the 25th Amendment because it gets rid of him, he’s out of office, but there is strong support in the Congress for impeaching the president a second time,” she added. Take a look:

Removing Trump?

If invoked, the 25th Amendment — specifically, Section 4 of it — would allow Vice President Pence and a majority of Trump’s Cabinet to remove the president with a “written declaration” to Congress “that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” At that point, the “Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President,” the text of the amendment reads.

But Pence has been reported to oppose the idea, and on Monday, NPR reported that House Democrats had “filed an impeachment resolution charging Trump with inciting an insurrection.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has indicated, however, that the upper chamber can’t take up the matter until Jan. 19, just a day before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. As it stands, the House isn’t even expected to vote to impeach until a week before Inauguration Day at the earliest, NPR notes.

It all begs the question: Is this more political theater than a concerted attempt to impeach and remove? With Pelosi at the helm, we may never know for certain.

    1. Our only POTUS, President DJT was clearly the winner, but his presidency was stolen by these vindictive, hateful and cannot accept the face that they lost from him since 2016. Now their evil ways will continue through another evil man, so called P elect Biden. He will be the puppet for the Clintons, Obamas, Soros, Bloomberg, Pelosi and Schumer, big techs, non-journalists mainstream media, traitors and treasoners of the USA. Biden has no guts and no balls to run the Peesidential job. He can’t even control his criminal son, Hunter. These idiots are forgetting that they’re working FOR US, US citizens and that they should pay attention to that, instead of thinking of themselves and putting our earned money and other countries’ money in their pockets.

      1. You are absolutely CORRECT. Pelosi needs to be removed from office because her brain is not capable of telling the TRUTH.

  1. This President has done more in one term than any other President in my Lifetime. Where is the unity Joe Biden talked about? If Democrats spent half as much time working for American people as they did with their ridiculous impeachment hoaxes our Country would be so much better off. We need term limits so we can get rid of these power hungry Politicians.

    1. “ TERM LIMITS “

      SADLY :.(… THIS WITCH HAS MORE SPINE, MORE VOCALIZATION, MORE ACTIONS TAKEN, MORE TV TIME, & EVEN MORE THINKING,
      (ALTHOUGH I BELIEVE;
      IT’S -ALL- UNFILTERED, IRRATIONAL, DYSFUNCTIONAL, DESTRUCTIVE, BORDERLINE PSYCHOTIC, & $ CORRUPT):
      -»»—> THAN ALL THE CONSERVATIVES, REPUBLICANS, & ALL OTHER RATIONAL DIPLOMATS WORKING EITHER SIDE OF THE AISLES OR THE HILL… COMBINED!!!!!!!!!!!!
      “We The People” …Will Never Get the Focus From, or The Work Promised, with The Taxes We Pay, from the Politicians We Elect;
      UNTIL TERM LIMITS ARE BACK IN EFFECT, AS FORESEEN & INTENDED BY OUR FOREFATHERS, TO HAVE AN HONEST, WORKING, PRODUCTIVE, DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY!!!
      Once i was taught about a historic story. Of a Country in which there was the Greatest Country on Earth. The story was a couple hundred years ago and called the United States of America. It was famous for its differences from ALL Others;
      Because it had a written contractual agreement with “We The People”, with their Democratic Government!
      THE STORY SAID *ALL OF US HERE WERE DESCENDED FROM IMMIGRANTS;
      Whom were ALL wanting to, & welcome to, immigrate there because we learned if you worked hard, were mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually vested, they could have a right to vote, think for themselves, speak freely, and together they could believe and trust they could enthusiastically dream to change anything, And Effectively Implement Those Dreams!
      They built, improved, and felt included and vital to that Country…
      THUS THEY LOVED THEIR HOME, COUNTRY, AND TRUSTED THEIR GOVERNMENT;
      AND THEIR COUNTRY LOVED THEM BACK!
      THUS THEY… [ WE ] …ALL MATTERED!

      ALL UP UNTIL TERM LIMITS WERE ENDED – THEN GREED AND ENTITLEMENT ONLY INCLUDED THE RICH AND POWERFUL, AND EXCLUDED ALL LIVES FROM MATTERING!!!

      1. FINISH BUILDING THE WALL TO KEEP OUT ALL OF THOSE TERRORIST ILLEGALS……………Treat them to a under the skin tag (like our 4 legged friends) so they cannot get past the Border gates……..

  2. That nasty woman is a hatefilled old hag. She should be recalled but no one has the guts, they are all afraid of her. Conservatives must get a spine and fight back like the demorats do.

    1. I pray daily that these anti-Constitution politicians suffering daily in their lives and NEVER dwell in the House of the LORD….

      1. Spiritually, I’d be a tad careful what I’d pray for. I’m not sure that the Lord wants his people to run around damning folks — which is essentially what you are asking for.

        1. I think you are correct. It’s God’d job to judge people, not ours. Let’s pray, instead, for their souls.

  3. tell us where are ”da impeachable offenses” ?
    here: take a few mins and read this. Eh? Spencer, for his part, argued Sunday that if Democrats are set on impeaching Trump over his alleged incitement, they’ll need to show exactly where, when, and how. “Where did he say that the crowd should storm the Capitol and disrupt the electoral vote certification?”
    the writer pressed, citing the transcript. “If he didn’t say this, then he is not guilty of incitement, and to claim that he is threatens the very foundations of America as a free society,” Spencer wrote.
    columnist-questions… so where did he incite riot? vandalism? etc? eh?

  4. Of course there is more to the impeachment then they are saying. He won’t get his pension, no free travel and he can’t run again in 2024. That is why Nutty Nancy is pushing this. Can’t vote on it until the 19th and at noon the 20th he will be a civilian and they can’t impeach a civilian
    Trump is the legitimate president

    1. Don’t forget…..the demos have pledged to expand the Supreme Court so that Biden can swing it to a demo controled body. With the Congress, Presidency and the Supreme Court all controled by one party you have a one party DICTATORSHIP !!! Our founding fathers wanted a system of checks and balances, which would be gone.

  5. Nancy! She knows that were on to her actions. She’s trying desperately to save her one behind. She thinks that pointing at elsewhere will distract us from her attempts to find her destruction path.

  6. After all the ff the left has drumbed up. At if a is the cherry on the cake! They could not have all the v fraud reported on the congress floor. A large number if voters would have been able to see the truth. Not good for their untruths.

  7. That’s the way the dems do it, shift the focus away from their own misdeeds. The press helps by only presenting their own narrative, don’t even mention all the riots and deaths and destruction that has been going on for the last four years. No one is above the law except the dirty dems.

  8. pelosi has done more harm and illegal acts in our government than anyone else there! She is pure evil and out to destroy America and Americans for her almighty masters that feed her money and power! soros and other rich elites want total control of America and any other western free countries! A Civil War is brewing and pelosi and her demigods will be defeated by the people or by God the supreme ruler of all!

  9. Wish we could get her out of office she has done more harm to our country than any speaker in our history.Impeachment should be able to be used against her spends loads of money for a false reason has loaded her families accounts with money from foregin countries

    1. AMEN! I, too, wish we could find a way to strip away her power. But the Bible says God gives power and seats in government offices those He wants there; no matter who is in the Oval Office, God is still on the throne!

  10. I totally agree with you. Speaker Pelosi should be the first one to be ousted from any power whatsoever. Also, term limits would not allow them to steal from the American people through their “special deals”. It is sickening and I can’t believe how stupid so many people are. They need to become educated and not listen to the biased news and politicians.

  11. They don’t want him to be able to run again because after Biden the people will return to support him. They know this and their butts are scared

  12. The only way to fix the problem is to drag all of them out in the street kick there rear end and replace them with common people Nancy paloci needs impeached joe Biden and Harris all needs to be impeached and all of that needs to start on day one just like the Democrats did to trump the hole time he was there

  13. She is shameless. She is a lawmaker then she should know about ‘ innocent until proven guilty’. She is a clear and present danger for the US. Lock her up.

  14. AND CONVERSELY; NANCY PIGLOSI has done MORE Damage to this Country, and even to her own ‘so called DEMOCRATIC’ Party, than anyone can even imagine. Come Halloween, if not much sooner, she should jump on her Broom and fly into oblivion. The ENTIRE COUNTRY, if not the whole World, would benefit greatly.

  15. Mc Connell you deserve what you got!!!!! Better yet you need to go home
    and drink some more bourbon and eat a few chittlins and corn bread and
    maybe you will feel more at home . You never did support the President so
    it’s good you are no longer over the senate!!!!!!!!!

  16. This thing they call ” SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE ” Is a total drunken and drugged ludicrous buffoon and should be removed ASAP !!!!! She is a cancer to our democracy and a piss poor representative as Speaker of the House. She without a doubt is causing the separation in our government and everyone knows it. Nance Pelosi is a Despicable and Disgusting person and she is the one that should be removed and RELIEVED Of ALL BENEFITS !!!

  17. I believe the democrat party as a whole is to blind and ignorant to see just how close this country is to erupting in a full blown Civil War. What happened in DC just might be a shadow of things to come concerning the actions of corrupt politicians on both sides of the isle. Look at what has happened in every major democrap controlled city in the past few months, riots,looting,arson,destroyed businesses and even murder and it was all put off as peaceable protests. BLM and Antifa are played off to be nothing but peaceful protesters. Don’t the democraps know or even realize that people have eyes that have seen the destruction and hardships their peaceful protesters have caused? What happened in DC was not caused by anything Pres. Trump said, it was caused by the corrupt politicians of both major parties. What we saw in DC is just a small sample of what is going to happen to our country if WE THE PEOPLE continue to stand aside and allow corrupt politicians to continue to run rough shod over us. Remember the Constitution states a Government of the people, for the people and by the people. Keep reminding our so called Representatives that they work for us not rule over us and that the people do have the power to remove them from office when we see fit. If things continue down the path they currently are on this country will be torn apart by a Civil War the likes of which corrupt politicians can’t even imagine in their worst nightmare.

  18. WHAT IS A LIE??? IS IT THE TWISTED TRUTH??? IT IS EASY TO CHANGE VICTIMS OF OF LIES, PEOPLE DO IT EVERY DAY, EGO PRESERVATION & SHIFT BLAME.
    NOW I BELIEVE NOT A THING IS A LIE, JUST A VOICE OF OPINION.

    WILL THE LIES LIVE (FOREVER)???
    SOMETHING I READ SAID (YOU WILL JUDGED BY YOUR????)

  19. She is a SICK woman : She should be de-throned ASAP. She is a danger to our society ! She is a CLEAR and PRESENT danger to our CIVILIZED SOCIETY ! I am sick of her ! I hope that one or more of her children suffer the same fate !
