Pelosi drives House majority off a cliff with witch hunt

Oct. 31, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the House’s vote on the impeachment inquiry resolution against President Donald Trump:

“Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment gambit has effectively driven her majority in the House off a cliff as only two Democrats who represent strong Trump districts voted against the ongoing and unfair impeachment witch hunt. A wise Speaker would have been content with a simple majority vote, allowing those vulnerable members to present the illusion of honesty and fairness rather than revealing themselves as Trump derangement syndrome enablers. Democrats Collin Peterson and Jeff Van Drew’s votes against the probe have earned praise for standing up to Pelosi and in favor of their constituents, due process and the truth. While this may scare some GOP establishment insiders, the 2020 Congressional election will be nationalized as an up or down on President Trump, and Pelosi just handed them the key to Republican control of the House in 2020 if only they are smart enough to grab it and use it.

“The House GOP leadership has done a remarkable job of educating their members about Pelosi and Schiff’s abuses of power, consolidating Republican support across inter-conference lines against this impeachment inquiry driven by blind hatred that shields political good judgment. The only question is when House Democrat survival instincts will kick in resulting in massive defections from the demands of the AOC-led radical political impeachment push.”
