"Nancy Pelosi just got duped in an interview to admitting that she has been working on impeaching me for 'two and a half years.'"

"In other words, she lied. This was the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats plan all along, long before the Ukraine phone call. Impeachment Hoax!"

Tweets Trump this morning. He doesn't link to an article or video with that quote or even say who the interviewer was or what was the question that "duped" her. I tried looking it up and was unsuccessful. Anybody know?

ADDED: Thanks to commenters who aimed me approximately here:
Politico’s Anna Palmer asked Pelosi to react to the criticism that Democrats are racing through their impeachment inquiry of the president.

“It’s been going on for 22 months, two-and-a-half years actually,” Pelosi said initially.

Then immediately made clear she was referring to the Mueller investigation.

“I think we are not moving with speed. Was it two and a half years ago they initiated the Mueller investigation? It’s not about speed. It’s about urgency. One of the charges against the president of the United States is that he was violating his oath of office by asking for government to interfere in our election undermining the integrity of our elections,” she said.

Try asking that really short guy from California, Robert Reich. I remember him calling for impeachment/resistance shortly after the election. It may have something to do with the "not my President" vowel movement.

CJinPA said...

Here’s MSNBC’s take:

[At Politico’s “Women Rule” summit], Anna Palmer asked Pelosi to react to the criticism that Democrats are racing through their impeachment inquiry of the president.

“It’s been going on for 22 months, two-and-a-half years actually,” Pelosi said initially.

Then immediately made clear she was referring to the Mueller investigation.

“I think we are not moving with speed. Was it two and a half years ago they initiated the Mueller investigation? It’s not about speed. It’s about urgency. One of the charges against the president of the United States is that he was violating his oath of office by asking for government to interfere in our election undermining the integrity of our elections,” she said.

Wince said...

Saw the video on Fox last night.

As I remember, Pelosi was attempting to rebut a reporter's question about the rush to impeach, saying something to the effect it's been in the works all along.

Anna Palmer asked Pelosi to react ...

I heard that exchange yesterday on talk radio. I don't remember which program.

CJinPA said...

As usual, while Trump left out the full context, there was enough true about what he wrote for it to stand. They have indeed been trying to impeach him for two and a half years.

Ken B said...

It's like a bad sitcom. Jack says she has hot tits and then has to convince Mr Roper he meant she left her bra in the drier too long.

Mike Sylwester said...

Obviously, there has been a massive effort to remove President Trump from office ever since he was elected in November 2016.

Such an effort is unprecedented in US political history.

Ironically, Trump's political survival in such circumstances has made him a hero for much of the electorate.

Leland said...

I caught all this when it happened, but it doesn't matter. It's not like this impeachment is about real crimes or that the Democrats intend to try Trump as if this was a respectable court of law matter. And their voters will still claim that this isn't about the fact they can't abide Hillary losing to Trump or respect the results of elections.

In other words, Trump’s Tweet was a lie. Another Trump lie.

robother said...

So, Pelosi is admitting that the Mueller investigation was initiating the impeachment. Which everyone in DC knew. As evidenced by the tweet of the whistleblower's attorney 10 days after Trump's inauguration, "the Coup begins."

But Trump is lying, according to Chuck. Right.

Mark said...

It is so unfair when the Donald is taken out of context, but that expectation is not something he will live up to.

Sort of like the #BeBest brouhaha about Barron. A week later Trump himself is mocking a teenager on social media ... but somehow this teenager is ok to mock publicly, just not Trump's precious little teenage snowflake.

Chuck said...

Trump must be counting on his base to be stupid enough to forget that Pelosi and Dem leadership pushed back on all impeachment talk for the better part of two years before the Ukraine scandal broke. The Trump base doesn’t get much past Rep. Rashida Tlaib and her idiotic and extremist inauguration celebration (“impeach the motherfucker”).

Nobody ever went broke, betting on the stupidity of the Tlaib or the Trump political bases.

purplepenquin said...

"In other words, Trump’s Tweet was a lie. Another Trump lie."

The Chosen One never lies, that would be below him - rather our President was simply making another one of his famous jokes as he is so apt to do.

Oh, only Talib? Seems lie there were articles of impeachment entered a LONG time ago by a congress critter that, helpfully, explained you could impeach Trump as many time as they want.

And Nancy was responding on why the Ds were not rushing impeachment. 22 months was the answer. Mueller was the walk back. Does ANYONE believe the Mueller investigation was not viewed on the left as the foundation for impeachment?

"C'mon, man!"

Lord there were SO many examples of the Resistance (brave young souls that they are) calling for impeachment.

Pathetic.

Dave Begley said...

This is what happens. Nancy said she's not going to whip the votes. Trump sends messages to those 31 Dems in Trump districts that he won't campaign against them if they vote against impeachment. The vote then fails in the House.

Nancy wins in that Trump doesn't destroy the Dems (Biden!) in the Senate trial. The Senate trial would be one long TV commercial for Trump. The Dem Senators can run for President and aren't stuck in DC for a month. Nancy's base feels good about the committee vote.

Trump wins as he is not impeached by the House.

Win. Win.

Excellent point.

There were others from the far left, not just Tlaib, and with methods more formal than Tlaib’s trash talk. All pushed back by Pelosi and leadership. For many, many months now.

Thank you for helping me make the case that Pelosi has not been plotting an impeachment from the beginning of the Trump Administration.

Qwinn said...

What exactly would Democrats have to do for *their* actions to rate as "government interference in an election"? Didn't the Horowitz report just lay out at least 17 times more evidence that the Democrats did this, including with help from foreign operatives?

Drago said...

LLR-lefty Chuck: "Nobody ever went broke, betting on the stupidity of the Tlaib or the Trump political bases."

Trump's current support among republican voters is 95%+ and LLR-lefty Chuck hates every one of them.

Which is why he is a big far left radical Lawfare guy as demonstrated by his continually linking to them and praising their positions.

Think of LLR-lefty Chuck as the Jeremy Corbyn of FakeCon NeverTrumpers.

Drago said...

gahrie: "..and then Chuckles starts defending Democrats again. It does cause one to doubt his party identification...."

There has been no time in the last 4 years where LLR-lefty Chuck was not defending democrats.

LLR-lefty Chuck has shown a particular affection for the more radical members of the democrat party, just like Tlaib.

Every now and again LLR-lefty Chuck remembers that he is supposed to at least pretend to be conservative, but its clear he's forgotten his earlier training and can't even fake it anymore.

Drago said...

"As I remember, Pelosi was attempting to rebut a reporter's question about the rush to impeach, saying something to the effect it's been in the works all along."

Indeed.

Just wait until the republicans incorporate that Pelosi comment into their ads!!

You think LLR-lefty Chuck is upset and protective of Pelosi now?! Just wait until that happens!

Drago said...

Sorry Chuckie!! Your pals Pelosi and Schiff-ty and Nads Nadler and Swalwell have completely given your game away.

There really is nowhere to hide for you HoaxCon's anymore.

I suggest you spend more time on Jonah Goldberg's twitter arguing about which Star Wars movie is the best and what dog pictures are most meaningful to you!

LOL

That's about all he's doing these days anyway.

Drago said...

You know, it seems like only yesterday LLR-lefty Chuck was lecturing us all about how wrong Brexit was and how stupid its voters were and how ridiculous Boris Johnson is and how wonderful the EU-ophiles were.

Which just goes to show LLR-lefty Chuck is happy to be just as big a political doofus predicting political events on this side of the pond as he is predicting political events on that side of the pond!!

BTW, China deal phase 1 signed! Big big win for America's farmers.....and LLR-lefty Chuck despises that deal for the obvious reason that America is helped by it.

Francisco D said...

In other words, Trump’s Tweet was a lie. Another Trump lie.

I think Chuckles association with Inga is showing. He simply cannot tell the difference between opinion and fact.

Drago said...

Someone should go pull up all of LLR-lefty Chuck's predictions from 2015/16/17/18/early 19 where he said Trump was too dumb and incompetent to get any Trade Deals done.

Oh how LLR-lefty Chuck laughed and laughed and laughed at the 95%+ republican base voters who believed Trump would get those deals done.

Oh how LLR-lefty Chuck laughed and laughed and laughed.

You see, LLR-lefty Chuck simply knew those sorts of deals were not possible. Better yet, LLR-lefty Chuck knew those deals weren't needed, what with the amazing and astonishing and wonderful economy Chuck's "magnificent" obama gave us........


..........LOL

Yes, LLR-lefty Chuck even yesterday is STILL arguing that all the economic improvements were due to obama!!

This is because LLR-lefty Chuck is a "principled True Conservative"...........

Why can't the democrats/LLR-lefties cut the investigators some slack and conjure up a French Polynesia scandal.

Hell, everyone and their cousins would want in on that one.

Yancey Ward said...

How was she "duped"? The reporter is obviously sympathetic to Pelosi and the Democrats. Pelosi made a gaffe of actually telling the truth, then tried to walk it back by referring to Mueller.

Trump was right in the tweet, but everyone knew that without Pelosi's gaffe- the measure is who is honest enough to admit that the Democrats have been planning Trump's impeachment since before he was elected. To not admit this is to either be a liar or the dumbest fuck lawyer in Michigan.

Yancey Ward said...

And, yes, I probably should embrace the power of "and".

Drago said...

Yancey Ward: "How was she "duped"? The reporter is obviously sympathetic to Pelosi and the Democrats. Pelosi made a gaffe of actually telling the truth, then tried to walk it back by referring to Mueller."

A Kinsley Gaffe where one accidently blurts out the truth which exposes real intent.

LLR-lefty Chuck has made any number of these Kinsley Gaffe's over the last 4 years exposing him as a typical run of the mill leftist.

Calling this a lie is a lie. Anyone doing that is a liar and should refrain from criticizing others for lying.

It's not possible for an honest informed person to believe that the Democrats have not been planning and attempting impeachment since the day Trump was elected. You know they had the conversations the very next day, and many of them have been openly calling for it and running on it ever since. Stop lying.

Achilles said...

Chuck said...

What was the Russia hoax investigation about Chuck?

They have obviously been trying to impeach trump since he was elected.

You are just a piece of shit and nobody cares what you say. You are on the same side as the democrats, but they don't even respect you.

purplepenquin said...

Chuck makes only three posts, yet it result in his name being called out over two dozen times by three different people....with five of those posts in a row from the same person.

That's gotta be a new record, no? Even Emmanuel Goldstein only had a moment of hate directed at him in a day. The Althousians take it to a whole new level - their hate isn't only momentarily, rather it festers & burns all day and every day.

Big Mike said...

I can't speak for Tlaib and her lefty loonies, but with respect to Trump's supporters this is precisely the sort of attitude that gave us Trump in the first place. I wonder whether the moby who wrote this will ever have enough brain cells working simultaneously to understand that point.

It's not hate to point out particular posters long posting history and what that history says about their true intent.

Any honest recounting of interactions with LLR-lefty Chuck would have to include the fact that he was specifically banned for hateful, vulgar and racist attacks as well as obvious bad faith posting and refuses to abide by that banning.

Of course, since its purplepenguin we are talking about, another Adam Schiff-type poster, one cannot expect an honest recounting from him/her/xer.

But do carry on in high dudgeon on behalf of your lefty ally Chuck.

Qwinn said...

IMO, today's rushed vote was a desperate attempt to shift the conversation away from the Horowitz report.

Let's not fall for it, I say.

purplepenquin said...

"Any honest recounting of interactions"

I'm not convinced you are giving an "honest recounting" of things he has said/done. You've repeatedly said many of the same exact things about me, which I know to be completely untrue, so it isn't much of a leap for me to beleive you will lie about others as well.

"he was specifically banned"

You sure about that? 'cause if so, why aren't his posts being deleted like others who-shall-not-be-named* are? When folks who have been banned try to post again, moderation goes on and their comments are removed yet that isn't happening with him. Why not?

Perhaps you could link to where our hostess specifically banned him from posting on her blog? Ain't saying it didn't happen, just saying it is kinda hard to take your word on it.




*And I shall not name them 'cause our hostess has clearly stated that we should not name those who she has banned from her blog...

....which begs the question, if you truly beleive he is banned then why do you keep talking about him? (Even in threads he doesn't participate in). Sounds to me like you're saying a big ol' "Fuck You!" to Althouse by doing so, but I'm sure you have justified it somehow in your own mind, eh?

Drago said...

purplepenguin: "I'm not convinced you are giving an "honest recounting" of things he has said/done."

LOL

Althouse banned him, not me.

Dummy.

Yancey Ward said...

He was told to leave numerous times. His posts were deleted during the moderation periods. Drago is correct.

Link, please.

And if so, then why do you keep interacting & talking about him...even in threads he hasn't posted in? Are you unaware that she has requested that we not do so with those folks whom she has banned or do you just make your own rules on her blog?

Ray - SoCal said...

I’m still amazed that Trump survived the Mueller investigation.

My guess is Pelosi did not expect Trump to survive either.

The collapse of the Mueller narrative forced this plan B with the Ukraine. And perhaps another reason was Trump was poking around the Ukraine, which would expose the business as usual corruption in the US government, and seems to have had an outsized influence in anti a Trump stuff.

Drago said...

purple: "Are you unaware that she has requested that we not do so with those folks whom she has banned or do you just make your own rules on her blog?"

I agree with this to an extent.

Chuck is a part of a small and discredited movement of paid shills that are paid by leftist billionaires to present a false premise.

Refer to the Cruise Ship GOPe in the general characterizations.

Address his stupid posts when he posts.

But pointing out he has lied repeatedly, represents a movement with about 100 people in it, and is an admitted racist are all legitimate points.

purple is very very very very concerned that someone might criticize the posting stylings of banned poster LLR-lefty Chuck.

Discuss.

Chuck said...

I must defend the Althouse blog, and specifically Althouse herself.

I’d like to think that she would not countenance the use of her blog comment pages for any “racist” content, and she did not, would not, should not allow me or anyone else to post racist comments. As far as I know, Althouse has NOT allowed any racist commentary.

I’ve never posted any racist comments. The psychotic Trump loyalists here who claim that I was “banned” for racist (among other things?!?) comments are stating falsehoods that aren’t simply insulting and injurious to me; they are insulting to Althouse and her blog.

You won’t see my detractors post any linked examples of racist comments from me, because they cannot. There aren’t any. (Cue Drago, quoting me out of context on Dr. Ben Carson; I like Dr. Carson personally and have met him and have had the opportunity — long before anyone outside of Detroit and the subspecialty of pediatric neurosurgery ever heard of him — to tell him of my admiration of him. Drago knows this and will not tell you about it. It would be the umpteenth time that Althouse’s readers would have been bored by Drago’s smear and by my exhausted response.)

We see more of the psychotic personal attacks on me today, on page after page of the Althouse blog. Dozens upon dozens of personal attacks on me. A page where a half dozen consecutive comments from Drago, each and every one of which is a personal attack on me, interrupted only by a single post from another commenter who clearly only got his comment into the que as Drago was hitting “Publish my comment on yet another.

I feel sorry for Althouse, having to police that volume of dreck, bearing no relation to the subject(s) of her blog posts.

My only “crime” against the Althouse blog is my mere existence, with a point of view that is hostile to Donald Trump and derisive of Trump’s supporters. My original comment on any comments page of any Althouse blog post is uniformly aimed at the substance of her posting. After that is when the personal attacks begin in on me. And often enough, the personal attacks on me begin even without a single comment from me. This is certainly a moderation problem, but it is just as obviously not my problem.

Completely unlike many other Trump nominations. Like Trump's nomination of Dr. Ricky Bobby for the Veteran's Administration. Or Ben Carson for Department of Black People. Or Scaramucci for anything.

I think that there is general relief that Trump didn't nominate Agent Maxwell Smart for head of the CIA.

Chuck blatantly racist in this post.

He attacked another military serviceman who served the country and military members for years in a condescending and snitty manner.

There is a reason Ann asked you to leave Chuck.

She can't even defend you with your civility bullshit. Purple Penguin only defends you because you are an ally of the leftists and they are looking pretty shitty too and need all the help they can get.

The left(inclusive) is falling apart. They are getting crushed in Honk Kong. They got crushed in Britain. They are losing here in the US.

It took them 30 years to recover from the fall of the Soviet Union and they almost won in 2016.

The last 3 years have been nothing short of a miracle.

I rarely share my story with people, not only because it put me at the lowest point ever but because it made me a person of ridicule among family and friends. I put all I had into Binary Options ($690,000) after hearing great testimonies about this new investment

 strategy. I was made to believe my investment would triple, it started good and I got returns (not up to what I had invested). Gathered more and involved a couple family members, but I didn't know I was setting myself up for the kill, in less than no time all we had put ($820,000) was gone. It almost seem I had set them up, they came at me strong and hard. After searching and looking for how to make those scums pay back, I got introduced to maryshea03@gmail.com who helped recover about 80% of my lost funds within a month.
