Nancy Pelosi wants every American to pray for the country as long as Donald Trump is in charge – a condition she does not expect to last much longer as she returns as speaker of the House in January.
Maybe Special Counsel Robert Mueller will still indict him, Pelosi wonders out loud to the Atlantic on Sunday. But whether he does or not, she says: “Recognize one point. What Mueller might not think is indictable could be impeachable.”
Thus, she promises, under her leadership, there will be a massive search for documents as part of a massive search for a high crime or misdemeanor.
Not that she has given up in the Russian interference in the 2016 election, mind you. In fact, she calls the evidence “indisputable.” Further, she calls the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general a clear move against the Mueller probe that “is perilously close to a constitutional crisis.”
But she wants you to understand she’s fair – a paragon of justice.
“You have to have evidence, evidence of the connection,” she explains. “Everything’s about the connection. That’s why we want to see the documents. Because we’re seeking truth. We’re seeking truth for the American people about the integrity of our elections, and honoring the Constitution.”
Keep in mind, Pelosi is no longer the radical democratic socialist firebrand speaker. She’s the “moderate” – and happy to remind you.
“I am such a target of the left, it’s almost funny,” she quips.
