Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats aren’t done reaping what they sowed on impeachment.
They’re just beginning to see the consequences of their actions.
And Nancy Pelosi was blindsided by this bad news about impeachment she never saw coming.
In an effort to spin the Democrats’ impeachment defeat into a win, Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff tried to claim the Senate’s acquittal didn’t matter.
Pelosi incoherently ranted in a press conference that regardless of the Senate’s acquittal, President Trump has been “impeached for life.”
Leftist reporters and trolls on Twitter thought it was brilliant, prompting “#ImpeachedForLife” to briefly trend on Twitter.
Republicans quickly countered by pointing out that Donald Trump’s acquittal was also “for life.”
But lacking the media allies on Capitol Hill to amplify their message, Republicans were never going to beat back Democrats’ messaging with clever rhetorical games.
Instead, New York Congressman Lee Zeldin (R) told Breitbart Radio host Matt Boyle that the ultimate response to Pelosi’s spin would come when Republicans reclaim the House majority.
“I believe that that should be one of the very first orders of business in January of 2021 — is to expunge this sham impeachment,” Zeldin said.
Zeldin went on to warn, “The House Intelligence Committee basically turned itself into the House impeachment committee. […] If President Trump was reelected and Democrats kept control of the House — the only thing that we can say with confidence as far as what they’ll be prioritizing is trying to make President Trump the first president to be impeached twice […]”
“President Trump was acquitted for life. He shouldn’t have been impeached in the first place,” Zeldin added.
Expunging the Democrats’ impeachment of President Trump would add insult to injury for Pelosi and Schiff.
And with Bernie Sanders moving closer to securing the Democrat nomination in each contest, the odds Republicans take back the U.S. House and add to their Senate majority increase daily.
That makes it even more likely a new Republican majority would move to erase the Democrats’ partisan impeachment from the record “for life.”
