Lindsey Graham: Pelosi’s Job is at Risk (VIDEO)
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Sunday that Speaker Pelosi’s job is at risk because she is being pressured to go down the impeachment road.
“Her job is very much at risk,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Nancy Pelosi is riding a bucking, wild bronco called the Democratic caucus.”
“Seventy percent of the Democratic base wants President Trump impeached. She knows that impeachment would be political suicide because there’s no reason to impeach the president. So she’s trying to keep the party intact. If she goes down the impeachment road, Republicans take back the House, we keep the Senate, President Trump gets reelected.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been beating the impeachment drum lately because she is being pressured by members of her Democrat House caucus to remove President Trump from office.
Just hours after her dust-up with President Trump at the White House last Wednesday morning, Pelosi told a liberal conference in DC that Trump may have committed an “impeachable offense” by “obstructing justice” and engaging in a “cover-up.”
Pelosi, who previously shied away from impeachment talk, stoked the flames last week with her inflammatory rhetoric.
“As they say, the cover-up is frequently worse than the crime,” Pelosi said citing one of the impeachment articles against President Nixon.
But by Thursday evening, Pelosi backed down from impeachment — “We’re not at that place,” Pelosi said Thursday after President Trump ripped into her.
Pelosi closed the House and sent home lawmakers Thursday evening for a 10-day Memorial Day recess and quelled calls to remove Trump from the White House.
“Per usual, the Senator has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about,” Pelosi’s spox, Drew Hammill, told The Hill.
