#1 She had a way out, but apparently even she knows the demoncrats are mostly toast in 2020.

Going for as many back room deals as possible in the hail mary.

#2 Just saw her "press conference". She's lost her f*cking mind

#3 She still has an out - if the impeachment vote fails in the house and just never gets to the senate. She can certainly rig it that way.
She benefits with the AOC lunatics for trying and won't have to worry about blue dogs in the upcoming election losing their seats to R's.
Who knows.

#4 Pelosi is going to run up trumps margin of victory with this nonsense. That is the only way they'll learn their lesson, a total smashing victory.

#5 This was always a foregone conclusion.

#6 This does surprise me. Nancy didn't get to where she is without having very good political instincts. But from everything I've read, impeachment is such a loser that it is hard to fathom what she's thinking of.

#7 ^Maybe Biden family weren't the only familia to benefit from Ukrainian Bonanza?

#8 She needs to get dems to vote no, the ones that have no worries about getting reelected. Then she can have it both ways.

#9 Yeah, if the vote fails by a vote or two, we'll all see Pelosi's 'invisible hand' at work.

But AOC and her ilk will not go quietly.

#10 She's in a big frickin' hurry too. They'll have to pass those articles of impeachment before they can read them...and then it'll be too late.

#11 Best part is - once it's in the Senate - Senators are then *required* to attend - no campaigning allowed.

#12 CF, that's why I hope that, if the Dems are stupid enough to actually impeach, then they do it quickly. That way, the Senate can get the trial over with quickly - essentially move do a directed verdict of acquittal.

#14 #13 It explains Pelosi's sudden fervor - mother's love.

#15 Pelosi: Hey girls and soy boys let's have a trial in the senate. Who cares if they call Hunter Biden and the "whistleblower" as witnesses?

#16 I like to play chess on the computer. It's very difficult to beat the computer but on those occasions when I get ahead, it'll sacrifice key pieces like rooks or even the queen just to delay the impending checkmate. I'm guessing the theory is that I might make a mistake (which has been known to happen) and then it'll still be able to win. Kinda seems like what Nancy's doing, sacrificing her own credibility and risking a crushing defeat for her party next November in a desperate attempt to distract from Democrat crimes and delay the impending justice.

#17 Are there any Constitutional safeguards for the Republic if Madam Speaker is totally bonkers?

#18 Peeelosi suddenly gets religion, invoking gawd, prayer, Mad-ison, etc, etc, etc to try to paint their disgusting extremist leftism as a holy calling.

#19 Is there precedent for a "secret ballot" vote? That might get her out of trouble.

I hope there isn't such a precedent--unaccountability would be an even bigger problem than now.

#20 I called her office today and left a message telling her to help move the country forward “By taking an overdose of sleeping pills tonight you fuck/ng c@nt.” If it makes national news you heard it here first.

#21 Take it out on her / them at the ballot box.

Turnout will decide the election.

Get out the vote. Volunteer for the Trump campaign. Make sure every potential Trump voter understands the urgency and gets to the polls next November.
