A new piece in the New York Post is claiming that history will not look favorably upon House Speaker Nancy Pelosi because of her latest impeachment stunt.
According to the New York Post:
The speaker’s decision to go all in on impeachment is fraught with danger and could have fateful consequences far beyond Donald Trump’s presidency. With only about a year to go until the 2020 election, Pelosi has thrown her full weight behind the effort to undo the results of 2016.
This is a historic mistake, one that could tear America apart. Based on the evidence the House has made public, impeaching Trump is a meritless, reckless assault on democracy.
Anyone who believes our country is now a polarized tinderbox ain’t seen nothing yet. Trying to remove the president on the flimsy charges that he illegally pressured Ukraine for investigative help would quicken the national crack-up that’s been building for years.
Pelosi’s timing is both cynical and bizarre. A full House vote on an impeachment inquiry, which could come Thursday, probably means she is aiming to consider articles of impeachment this year.
The author goes on to point out that Pelosi does not have what she needs to impeach Trump no matter the process she uses so her actions and a possible impeachment will lower the potency of an impeachment proceeding in the future.
