Speaker Nancy Pelosi has continued her search for book sales, and it seems her search for a plausible rationale for personally blocking any impeachment investigation of President Bush. The latest explanation came in an interview with Time Magazine. It seems that she would not allow an investigation because Bush would never have supplied incriminating evidence against himself. It seems that House investigators rely on the accused to build an impeachment case.
Only last week, Pelosi used the august body of the hosts of The View to reveal her view on impeachment: there is simply no evidence of crimes committed by President Bush.
My understanding is that her office was inundated with copies of the various documented crimes alleged against Bush. Now, Pelosi is claiming a different rationale - they could not rely on the White House and GOP supplying the evidence needed to convict:
Pelosi: You can’t talk about impeachment unless you have the facts, and you can’t have the facts unless you have cooperation from the Administration.
Nobody is this stupid. NOBODY. People this stupid forget to breathe, and fall over dead.
