In last weekend’s 60 Minutes interview, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi revealed the real motivation behind the latest Democrat-led impeachment effort — to make sure President Trump never runs for President again. The left’s greatest fear is that President Donald Trump would take another shot at draining the Washington swamp in 2024.
Pelosi’s true intentions were exposed following the 60 Minutes interview in which she was questioned for pursuing a second impeachment of the President just days before his term ends. Earlier, Pelosi and leading House Democrats had argued they wanted Trump’s impeachment, or they would pursue the 25th Amendment, hoping to remove the President from office before the end of his term.
The 25th Amendment states, “Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
However, this amendment also requires at least 21 days to process, a physical impossibility in the case of President Trump, who has only days remaining in office.
The real reason for pursuing President Trump’s impeachment were shown in her words on 60 Minutes. When asked about the President running again in 2024, Pelosi stated, “That’s one of the motivations people have for advocating for impeachment.”
And by “people,” Pelosi means herself and other House and Senate Democrats.
We’re dealing with a ruthless leftist leadership that is no longer satisfied with President Trump leaving office on January 20. Instead, these headhunters are thirsty for blood, preemptively seeking to eliminate any possibility of Trump’s return to office.
Keep in mind these same Democrats have supported President Trump’s removal of free speech rights from Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitch, his campaign website on Shopify, at least one email service provider, and other online limitations. When the President was encouraged to join conservative social media network Parler, the entire Parler network was removed from the Google and Apple app stores, and had its website removed from Amazon’s web servers.
This retaliation is not about the events of January 6 at the nation’s Capitol building. It’s much bigger.
Democrats have now seized control of America. They are on a warpath to eliminate current and future enemies, beginning with enemy number one: President Donald Trump.
While President Trump is at the top of the left’s Ten Most Wanted, he is not the only target. It now appears those who supported President Trump against election fraud will receive the wrath of the left.
For example, Congressman Josh Hawley’s recent book contract with Simon and Schuster was quickly canceled. Democrats are calling for the resignation of Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Both men supported the effort to decertify the electoral vote on January 6 before protestors entered the Capital building.
Who’s next? As the list grows, Trump supporters and other patriotic Americans can expect their turn soon. It’s up to us to stand for our freedoms now — or suffer the consequences of an America void of free speech.
