Richva:   Frankly, I doubt very much Donald Trump understands the process of impeachment and he is a self described  "very stable genius". 

 

You are correct.

 

Trump thinks the courts might save him from impeachment. It doesn’t work like that.

President Donald Trump on Thursday morning revealed some profound confusion about the Constitution he’s sworn to preserve, protect, and defend — particularly the parts that detail how a commander in chief can be removed from office.

Thanks Jim. I agree. Not one word about anyone's intellegence or their capacity to understand, only that they did not understand.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently expressed concerns that the American public is not smart enough to truly understand the impeachment process.

 

The California lawmaker has been hesitant to jump aboard the impeachment train alongside the more “energized” members of her party. Prior to the tumultuous 2018 midterm elections and Mueller report results, Pelosi promised impeachment was “off the table.”“Going into the [2006] election, I said it’s off the table. I didn’t mean it’s off the table if you had some goods. If somebody has information, then we can act upon it,” Pelosi toldRolling Stone. “But from what we know now, it’s off the table.”

“Even with Trump. If you got something, show it,” Pelosi continued. “But I’m not going after it. What we’re going after is the economic security of America’s working families.”

 

Pelosi seemed to have a change of heart last month and accused Trump of being involved in a “cover-up.”“We do believe that it’s important to follow the facts. We believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States. And we believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up,” she said after emerging from a meeting with House Democrats.

 

Fellow Democrat members are desperately trying to build a pro-impeachment coalition– one Pelosi would be unable to withstand. A number of House Democrats have been settingup a series of meetings in an effort to recruit and beef up their pro-impeachment movement, according to a report from the Daily Beast.

 

Despite Pelosi’s subtle shift in tone, there’s still an element of hesitancy for pursuing impeachment. It’s seemingly rooted in her concern for the American people’s mental capacity, or lack thereof.

 
Pelosi reportedly made the remarks during a closed-door members’ meeting following Memorial Day weekend, according to the Daily Beast, who reported:

Another article by Brightbart. Brightbart is nothing but a far right rag owned by the Mercers, and Steve Bannons mouth piece. Now what do the people behind Brightbart stand for right now. Destroy GB by having it leave the EU. Have Boris Johnson the new PM. Have NG become a force in GB. Destroy the EU, Italy, France, and over throw the pope. By the way Dictator Trump supports all of this to as they put up most of the money to make him President. Now we are supposed to believe what they say about Speaker Pelosi. She is one of their worst fears so ofcourse they would like to bring her down. The only people who would think their story is true are the far right enablers. The experts have told us who makes them up, and they prove the experts correct every day.

You must really read the source articles in these posts. Many "news" outlets want to translate what someone has said so it is most important to actually read the words the subject used and make up your own mind.  For example: I pulled the actual words of Ms. Pelosi and you will note no reference to the intelligence of voters. Only that they might not understand the process of impeachment.  Frankly, I doubt very much Donald Trump understands the process of impeachment and he is a self described  "very stable genius". 

 

As always, make sure you read the actual words and do not depend on the "translation" provided by some of the columnists quoted here.  As you can see, some columnists prefer propaganda to facts.
