Old video resurfaces showing Trump praising Pelosi: She needed to impeach Bush for lying
President Donald Trump and Republicans are currently crusading against Democrats and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for introducing Articles of Impeachment on the floor of the House.
Trump simply won't stop talking about how bad of a person Nancy Pelosi and the left is:
"SUCH ATROCIOUS LIES BY THE RADICAL LEFT, DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS. THIS IS AN ASSAULT ON AMERICA, AND AN ASSAULT ON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!!!!"
He sent Pelosi an official 6-page letter full of insults on Tuesday, the eve of his impeachment, and is continuing to make a stink about it on Wednesday.
Interestingly enough, old video of Trump from 2008 has just been re-released by CNN's Wolf Blitzer, where Trump is seen and heard praising Pelosi. He also discussed impeaching former President George W. Bush and how he wishes she would have because "he lied."
"I think she's a very impressive person. I like her a lot. But, I was surprised that she didn't do more in terms of Bush and going after Bush. It was almost, it just seemed like she was going to really impeach Bush and get him out of office. Personally, I think that would have been a wonderful thing."
Blitzer: To impeach him?
Trump: Absolutely, for the war.
Trump: Well, he lied! He got us into the war with lies. And, I mean, look at the trouble Bill Clinton got into with something that was totally unimportant, and well, Bush got us into this war with lies. He said they had weapons of mass destruction, by saying all sorts of things that turned out not to be true.
This video should be marked Exhibit A at Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate. The president's own words provide grave context to what is currently happening. Trump has lied repeatedly to the American people and given his own reasoning, Trump is saying that he should be removed from office.
