If this was supposed to be damage control by Nancy Pelosi after she was forced to give up her impeachment stunt and cave to Mitch McConnell, it wasn’t very smooth. Madame Speaker joined George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week on Sunday and did the worst thing she can do these days: speak her mind.
Pelosi, 79, then pivoted to McConnell, saying he has “resisted sources” that suggest Russian meddling in American elections.
“Sometimes I wonder about Mitch McConnell too,” remarked Pelosi. “What’s he — why is he an accomplice to all of that? He has resisted sources going in a manner commensurate with the threat for state agencies, whichever they are in a state, could be the secretary of state or whatever, to protect our infrastructure, our critical infrastructure of elections.”
Earlier in the interview, Pelosi claimed McConnell, 78, was participating in a “cover-up” after the Kentucky Republican signed onto a measure to dismiss Trump’s impeachment trial without witness presentations if Pelosi doesn’t send the two articles of abuse and obstruction to the Senate within 25 days.
Granny Box Wine is obviously suffering from Impeachment FAIL dementia. She knows that she and the rest of the House Democrats WAY overplayed their hands on impeachment and are not going to reap any of the benefits they thought they would from it, especially the way that the economy is chugging along.
Her party has been hijacked by a 20-something bartender and her Mean Girl friends, reducing Pelosi to nothing more than a slurring, babbling lunatic who, the more she insists she’s in control, the less she seems to be so.
Stephanopoulos played the ever-faithful Democratic narrative lapdog, keeping the Russia/Trump nonsense alive while using — did you catch it — Bloomberg as a source.
In the tweet below Dan Bongino concisely disposes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unhinged take on the ongoing impeachment saga (embedded video). Those of us who avoid the Sunday morning gabfests missed this revealing glimpse into the mind of the Dems’ strategic genius and legislative mastermind. The video clip below puts me in mind of a variation of George Wallaces’s infamous vow of “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” In Pelosi’s case, it would be “impeachment now, impeachment tomorrow, impeachment forever.”
This is must viewing. You really have to see it.
Reminder: This woman is second in the line of presidential succession.
Quotable quote: “[T]he president of the United States is in complete denial about Russia’s role. As I have said, in terms of this president, all roads lead to Putin. He said he’s not going to accept the assessment of our own intelligence agencies that they were very much involved in 2016 election, that 24/7, they are still engaged. He’s trying to blame on Ukraine and this silliness that has been debunked again and again — but he and his folks still keep advancing it. Everything that he has done, whether it’s in Syria vis a vis the Turks, whether it’s in Ukraine in terms of withholding assistance as they try to fight the Russians, his denial about their role in our election then and now, all roads lead to Putin. And sometimes I wonder about Mitch McConnell too. What’s he — why is he an accomplice to all of that?”

This is a deeply troubled woman who has been relegated to trafficking in discredited conspiracy theories in order to try and save her tattered reputation. 👇🏻pic.twitter.com/vXyhF8YNHN

WHAT WAS THEIR FIRST CLUE? Democrats Think Pelosi Holding Impeachment Articles a Failed Strategy.
