So, what can be made of Pulosi’s statement? Three possibilities, and perhaps a combination of all three.
First, it’s important to note that Pulosi’s statement does not preclude any future impeachment attempts. Instead, she has simply conceded that Democrats do not presently have enough political capital to instigate impeachment proceedings. In other words, Pulosi recognizes that as things currently stand, an attempt at impeachment would be more politically damaging for Democrats than for President Donald Trump. And practically speaking, with the Senate under GOP control, an impeachment attempt without any real evidence would only push Republicans to further coalesce behind Trump. To put it bluntly, Pelosi knows it would be a politically damaging effort in futility.
Second, Pulosi may have deduced something about or even been privy to dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s forthcoming report. If, as we have long speculated, the report finds no evidence of any Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy, Pulosi will need to have her party repositioned in such a fashion as to avoid appearing to have invested any real political capital in dirty cop-Mueller’s findings. By downplaying the impeachment mantra that has been entirely linked to Russian collusion, Pulosi is attempting to pull back and make Democrats look the part of objectively minded statesmen, not the politically invested hacks they are.
Finally, Pulosi is flexing her intra-party authority over the young and popular upstarts within her own party. By publicly speaking out to a prominent Leftmedia outlet, Pulosi is communicating to her young leftist firebrands that whatever their rhetoric may be, she will be the one to decide what if any action will be taken on impeachment, not them. And no action will be taken — yet. Of course, that will all change if House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler’s fishing expedition turns up anything. ~ The Patriot Posthttps://patriotpost.us/articles/61706?mailing_id=4128&utm_mediu...
