Nancy Pelosi is not a good poker player. She is the proverbial mark at any game she sits down to play.
Yes, in the Dem caucus she is feared as she raises tons of money and never forgets a slight.
In short, she always gets even and will wait until the time is right to hit back. But the Dem caucus is cowardly and easily controlled.
The GOP and Trump? Not a chance. They don’t fall for her shenanigans, ok maybe Mitt Romney and Susan Collins do but the rest of the caucus does not buy her BS and behind the scenes maneuverings.
So it came as no surprise that in her desperation, with impeachment failing in a humiliating way and her caucus unhappy and ready to revolt – AOC just refused to pay into Nancy’s political slush fund – she had to make a move.
An ineffective move and all talk no action but it may calm down her panicked members for a day or two.
Pelosi actually threatened Trump and told ABC she would remove Trump “one way or another.”
During an interview with ABC News, Pelosi said Trump will be removed within the year or that Democrats “may have him removed sooner.”
“It’s Sunday morning — let’s be optimistic about the future … a future that will not have Donald Trump in the White House, one way or another, 10 months from now we will have an election if we don’t have him removed sooner,” she said.
Louisiana GOP Rep. Steve Scalise ripped Pelosi: “Impeachment was a Democrat hit job to stain Trump’s legacy and hurt him at the polls. Nothing more.”
“Remember this, next time they try to pretend they were prayerfully or reluctantly impeaching Trump Rep. Mark Meadows said.
“They weren’t. It was all about trying to politically damage the President.”
Pelosi said today:
– Trump won't be president next year "one way or another"
– Dems may "have him removed sooner" than the election
– Trump "will be impeached forever"
It's clear: Impeachment was a Democrat hit job to stain Trump’s legacy and hurt him at the polls. Nothing more. pic.twitter.com/LY4TUwNiuZ

George @GStephanopoulos, ask Crazy Nancy why she allowed Adam “Shifty” Schiff to totally make up my conversation with the Ukrainian President & read his false words to Congress and the world, as though I said it? He got caught! Ask why hearing was most unfair & biased in history?
