Sandwiched between radical Democrat socialists wanting to impeach Mr. Trump and centrist Democrats who oppose, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is in “a wicked impeachment dilemma” said Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel Friday.
After special prosecutor Robert Mueller issued his report, finding “… the investigation did not establish that the Trump Campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Mrs. Pelosi could have said impeachment was off the table. But she didn’t.
She should have taken to heart what Senate Majority Leader said earlier this month:
“Two years of exhaustive investigation and nothing to establish the fanciful conspiracy theory that Democratic politicians and TV talking heads had treated like a foregone conclusion. The special counsel’s finding is clear. Case closed. Case closed.”
Her approach, said Ms. Strassel “call it pseudo-impeachment — has involved accusing the president of all things impeachable (to appease the left) while not engaging in a real impeachment process (to appease moderates). That strategy is now hitting a wall.”
Creating more difficulty, a CBS poll conducted May 17-20 found 71% of respondents (94% GOP, 66% Independent and 60% Democrat) agreeing the economy is in good shape.
At the beginning of 2018, said DailyWire.com, 32% of respondents credited Mr. Trump for a strong economy. That has risen to 41%, with another 44% giving him partial credit for the economy.
The Daily Wire adds that since World War II no incumbent president has lost reelection in a growing economy.
Which is good news for President Trump — and bad news for Ms. Pelosi.
In obvious distress because of her rabble-rousing accusing Mr. Trump of crimes, Mrs. Pelosi needs an intervention.
