Nancy Pelosi, What Are You Doing?

Yesterday, the president gave us once again evidence that he does not know right from wrong. It's a very sad thing. Very sad thing that he does not know right from wrong.

I believe that he has been involved in a criminal cover-up — I've said that before — and our investigation is demonstrating that. The Mueller report showed obstruction of justice in 10 — at least 10, perhaps 11 — places.

But for the president to be so cavalier, to disregard, to be indifferent to wrong and any sense of ethics, that who we are as a country, to say he would invite foreign intervention [stammers] the intelligence community with great confidence has put forth that the Russians interfered in our election. That's an assault on our democracy. An assault on our democracy.

This president says it's a hoax. He's supposed— He takes an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, ah, but I guess it doesn't include him, in terms of being, uh, to be held accountable, to obey the law.
"Donald Trump doesn't know right from wrong" is not the message we need right now. At all.

As I said on Twitter: "The fuck he doesn't. Trump isn't confused, @SpeakerPelosi. He's aggressively unethical. He's aggressively corrupt. He leverages the power of his office to enact an agenda of malice and corruption, and then leverages the power of his office to shield himself from consequences."

Further, the Constitution doesn't magically hold presidents accountable. The Constitution provides a process by which the Congress can do that, so howsabout DOING THAT, Nancy?

Impeach him now. Christ.

She won't, of course. Not now. Maybe not ever. I don't know.

What I do know is that I find it very troubling that the Democratic Speaker of the House wants to look like she's going after Trump while actually continuing to protect him.
