Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats think they have the upper hand in the impending impeachment saga of Donald Trump.
So, as usual, they immediately overplay their hand and give Trump and the GOP some massive gifts.
First Kamala Harris came out and demanded a formal impeachment inquiry into Brett Kavanaugh.
This is political suicide for the Democrats but that has not stopped them in the past. But then today Pelosi went after Attorney General Bill Barr.
“The president of the United States used taxpayer dollars to shake down the leader of another country for his own political gain,” Pelosi started before trashing Barr on MSNBC.
From The Hill:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday accused Attorney General William Barr of going “rogue” in his efforts to protect President Trump from the fallout over a whistleblower complaint related to Trump’s conversations with the president of Ukraine.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Pelosi argued that Barr was part of a White House “cover-up” of Trump’s call to Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky, during which Trump asked Zelensky about the possibility of launching an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.
“He’s gone rogue,” Pelosi said. “I think where they’re going is a cover-up of a cover-up.”
“I think it’s sad, to have a Justice Department go so rogue,” she continued. “Well, they have been for a while. And now it just makes matters worse.”
The Speaker’s comments on MSNBC were her first in a sit-down interview since announcing Tuesday that the House would launch an impeachment inquiry into Trump over his conversations with Zelensky, which Democrats argue show clear evidence that Trump attempted to pressure Ukraine’s president into launching an investigation into Biden after speaking about possible military aid to the country.
