During a press briefing held on Capitol Hill Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi described President Trump’s actions as “an assault on the Constitution.”
“We take this to be a sad time for the American people, for our country, impeaching a president or having the investigation is not anything to be joyful about. I do not know if anybody is joyful,” Pelosi claimed. In fact, her fellow Democrats are ecstatically joyful at the prospect of Trump’s downfall.
“We place ourselves in a time of urgency on the threat to the Constitution, a system of checks and balances that is being made. It is. [The Founding Fathers] fought for independence, and they fought and won and established a democracy. Thank God they made the Constitutional amendable so we could be expanding freedom. We see the actions of this president being an assault on the Constitution. Once we had his admission, we had no choice but to go forward.”
Had no choice? The Democrats have been lusting for impeachment ever since Trump was elected.
