Nancy Pelosi Says Impeachment ‘Isn’t About Anything Personal with the President’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters the impeachment inquiry into President Trump is not because of any personal reasons Democrats may have against him.

Pelsoi said the impeachment inquiry is consistent to what the Founding Fathers had envisioned for the country and the separate, coequal branches of the government.

"In the here and now, we are keeping the republic from a president who says Article II, says I can do whatever I want. Not so. And if so, if you think that is so and you act upon that belief that is in violation of the Constitution of the United States. And so we will proceed with the facts, the truth. It’s about the truth and it’s about the Constitution and we’re working hard to defend our democracy," Pelosi said on Thursday.

"This isn’t about anything personal with the president, it isn’t about politics, it isn’t about patriotism — it isn’t about partisanship, it’s about patriotism. It’s about patriotism. And I would hope that rather than protecting the president personally, all of our colleagues would choose to honor their Oath of Office to protect and defend not the president, but the Constitution of the United States," she continued.

During her speech on the House floor prior to the press conference, Pelosi asserted no member of Congress came in order to impeach Trump. She also used an image of the American flag she was standing next to as a reason to vote for the impeachment inquiry resolution.

"What is at stake? What is at stake in all of this is nothing less than our democracy. I proudly stand next to the flag and I thank the gentleman from New York for providing it for us. This flag, so many have fought and died for this flag, which stands for our democracy," she said.
