Pelosi Claims Democrats Had “No Choice” But to Impeach Donald Trump

Pelosi Claims Democrats Had

( – On November 5, 2019, the US Senate voted to acquit Donald Trump after the Democratic-led House impeached the former president. Many believed the impeachment for abuse of power and obstruction of justice was a vindictive political attempt to get rid of Trump after the Mueller Report failed to prove collusion with Russia. Democrats alleged Trump offered Ukraine a quid pro quo for political and personal gain. Still, famed Harvard law professor and attorney Alan Dershowitz said Democrats wrongly impeached Trump because the former president believed he acted in the public interest in performing his duties.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) apparently disagrees with Dershowitz’s assessment. A reporter recently asked Pelosi if the first impeachment of Trump over Ukraine looks different in retrospect. The Speaker said Trump gave the Democrats no choice but to impeach and that with the benefit of hindsight, Trump’s call with newly inaugurated Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy looked more severe than it was at the time.

Pelosi alleged the President of the United States undermined US national security and the integrity of US elections. She added his lack of awareness about right and wrong was an assault on the US Constitution. When asked if the impeachment was partisan, the Speaker said it was not. Instead, she claimed the impeachment was patriotic.
