First of all, the thought of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi being heartbroken over anything is a far stretch. The thought of her being heartbroken over the thought of impeaching a Republican president who she has devoted every ounce of her energy into destroying is flat-out comical.

That’s the political game, however; mouth off empty, meaningless words. Pelosi appeared at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin over the weekend and discussed the impeachment inquiry. “I’m heartbroken about it. I would just have hoped that there would be something exculpatory, something that would say, ‘this is not what it seems to be,’ but that’s not where we are right now.”

Pelosi continued, “I think that right now there’s a cover up of the cover up. This really goes beyond.” She’s correct, there. The cover-up is for former Vice President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama’s actions while they were in office. Conveniently no investigations, impeachment probes, OIG reports, FISA courts or an outraged media occurred when the acts actually occurred.

In her discussion with Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith, Pelosi said:

If his judges decide that Congress has no oversight over the president of the United States, and that the administration does not have to respond to subpoenas, the system of checks and balances is over…I have a responsibility to protect and defend the Constitution.

Love it when Democrats actively try to obliterate the Constitution on a daily basis, and then conveniently use it to their advantage when it serves a purpose. No one buys your concern and sudden “responsibility to protect and defend the Constitution.”
