Is the witch melting? Nancy Pelosi gets all weak-kneed at leftist screams to 'Impeach!'
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a tough old political bird, and up until now, she's been impervious to hollers from assorted leftist special interest groups calling on her to move further leftward. She's a realist, and a cunning one, moving in for the kill only when she knows she has it for sure. Remember how the DACA kids screamed at her after all her efforts to help them? It was amazing ingratitude, and not the first time we've seen ingratitude from the group. But their screams, targeted specifically at Pelosi, didn't budge the Speaker a bit.
Well, she showed a surprising noodli-ness this weekend, when the leftist screamers came out for her at a California conference for Democrats. According to an NBC News report:
SAN FRANCISCO – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s speech to the California Democratic Party State Convention Saturday drew loud cries of “impeach” from attendees as Pelosi mentioned special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and ticked through evidence in the probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election that suggested President Donald Trump obstructed justicePelosi previously resisted calls to begin impeachment proceedings against the president even as the chorus of Democrats calling for impeachment grows.Her appearance before the California delegates -- a decidedly left-leaning crowd -- ramped up the pressure, with delegates beginning to shout “impeach” as she brought up the various congressional investigations into the White House and the Trump Organization.
When Pelosi made reference to Mueller, who spoke publicly for the first time in two years on Wednesday in addressing the results if his investigation, calls for impeachment grew louder, at one point almost drowning her out. The San Francisco-based representative stopped and said, “As I told you, this is like coming home for me.”
