In the wake of the mounting controversy over the now infamous Ukrainian phone call, house speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she may be left with no other choice than to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Despite the results of the Mueller report and cries by other Democrats for impeachment, Pelosi has been reluctant to even use the “I” word, let alone suggest that the House would proceed with same. Probably because she fears the political costs of impeaching a still very popular Donald Trump, and also because she knows impeachment will go absolutely nowhere in the Senate, as support for Trump among Republican Senators remains unshaken.

However, on Monday, only a  few hours after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said her party’s failure so far to impeach President Trump amounted to a major “national scandal,” Pelosi appeared to relent, and warn that a “whole new stage of investigation” could be approaching.

Pelosi specifically said that the unknown whistleblower who reportedly alleged that Trump acted improperly during a July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy must be allowed to speak to Congress, and the full whistleblower complaint must be provided. Pelosi went on to say that if such demands to get to see the full complaint are not met, that the Trump administration would then be entering a  “grave new chapter of lawlessness” that would necessitate “drastic action,” by the House, presumably, the drafting of articles of impeachment.

“We must be sure that the President and his Administration are always conducting our national security and foreign policy in the best interest of the American people, not the President’s personal or political interest,” Pelosi said.

Speaking to CNN’s “State of the Union,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., also said impeachment was on the table.

This kind of rhetoric from two of the top leaders of the Democratic Party, came soon after Ocasio-Cortez rekindled her simmering feud with Pelosi and her own party in the form of a fiery tweet: “At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior – it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it.”

Fallout From the Ukraine Phone Call Thus Far

Since the story broke, the President has admitted that he had communicated with Zelenskiy about Biden, and that the conversation concerned “the corruption taking place and largely the fact that we don’t want our people like Vice President Biden and his son [contributing] to the corruption already in the Ukraine.”

The President and top officials have maintained that nothing inappropriate occurred on the call.

Trump adding, “No quid pro quo, there was nothing… The new president is saying that he’s going to be able to rid the country of corruption and I said that would be a great thing, we had a great conversation.”

However, even some Republicans cautioned that the situation could be serious. Utah GOP Sen. Mitt Romney, a onetime Trump presidential rival, tweeted that “If the President asked or pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival, that would be troubling in the extreme.”

However, at the same time, California Rep. Devin Nunes predicted on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures, that Biden’s campaign is likely unraveling at the seams, and  “all because of the newly resurfaced reports about his possible misconduct in Ukraine that first originated back when Hillary Clinton was trying to make sure Biden didn’t get in the race.”

On Monday, Trump went on to say that the Ukraine allegations are “just as ridiculous as the others,” branding it “the Ukraine Witch Hunt” — a nod to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

“Will fail again!” Trump tweeted.

  1. Nancy Pelosi is imploding. She is no longer the leader of the Democrat Party, having been outmaneuvered by even MORE strident voices on the left.

    Their undoing is going to be any attempt to impeach President Trump and Pelosi, for all of her faults, knows it but their hatred for Trump [and Pelosi] will leave them no where to go. The impeachment could occur but there is no chance Trump would be removed. The result of an impeachment, successful or not, will cost the Democrats the House and see an increase in the Senate for Republicans.

    America is NOT unhappy with Trump yet the left’s hatred for him is destroying what’s left of their credibility. As for his part, President Trump is the greatest president America has had in over a century and a half, equalling that of Abraham Lincoln. The Democrats are doomed to failure and they’re just starting to realize it.

  2. The national emergency is Shiff and Pelosi trying to find something that is not there.Just like the Mueller report.A waste of time and money.I think the Republicans should go after the Democrats like they are going after Trump.Maybe they will get somewhere with them.I say we need to vote all these Democrats out of office.They have done nothing for us or the Country.Enough is enough . Vote Republican.Trump 2020.God Bless Trump.

  3. Democrats seem to be so out of touch with reality by believing that they can just impeach anyone with out just cause or of a crime being in evidence. No crime = no evidence = no case to prosecute!

  4. Nancy caves to the twit brigade! I say bring it on! I predict a change in leadership in the house, and Bellaire and brimstone from the White House for the next 4 years. Have a nice retirement Nancy.

  5. The dems can’t stand that they have no viable candidate and that Trump will win reelection so they must get him out of office to prevent that from happening.

  6. Exactly what they have become…i now call them CommieCrarts…not one thing democratic about them! Hitler wannabe’s is all they are….TOTAL control freaks at the highest Level! The DNC will destroy this country…by hook or by crook! I’m old…feel really sad for my children and grand children that may see the end of our free America.

  7. The Star Spangled Banner presents a question that each generation can answer. “O’ say can you see the flag’s broad stripes and bright stars? Do they yet wave over the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?
    The last couple of generations give me pause, do they want/deserve freedom?
    Democrat are acting stranger all the time. These folks shouting communism…why don’t the go to Venezuela or Cuba. I like THE U.S.A. just as it is with its imperfections etc. Trump haters go to Mexico. JUST SAYING
