Political Jiu-Jitsu – the political fighting style in which an opponent’s energy and position is used against them
Breitbart.com reports that
President Donald Trump revealed that Nancy Pelosi reassured him Democrats would not impeach him during a meeting at the White House on Friday.
“Nancy said, ‘We’re not looking to impeach you,’” Trump said after the meeting.”I said, ‘That’s good, Nancy, that’s good.’”
Trump spoke with reporters in the Rose Garden after meeting with Democrats for two hours.
Talk of impeaching Trump increased after Democrats took power in the House of Representatives on Thursday, electing Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff Drew Hammil disputed Trump’s account of the meeting, saying that she was only referring to the topic of the meeting.
“In his opening comments at the meeting, President Trump brought up impeachment,” Hammil said on Twitter. “Speaker Pelosi made clear that today’s meeting was about re-opening government, not impeachment.”
Pelosi has urged Democrats to wait until Robert Mueller issues the final report of his Russia investigation before they make any decisions on impeachment, but has stated she believes it is possible to indict a sitting president.
That bright light that you saw last evening up in the Northeastern Sky was the telephone lines to Speaker Pelosi’s Office burning up, as irate Far Left Democrats blasted her for backing away from impeaching their hated enemy, President Donald J. Trump.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, even if she is the skilled politician that all of the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, claim her to be, finds herself navigating stormy political waters.
Her San Francisco Liberal Elitism has already caused her to clash with the young “New Bolsheviks” elected to the House of Representatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
With the Modern Democratic Party firmly anchored in the shallows on the Far Left Shore of American’s Political Ocean, San Fran Nan finds herself an “Ancient Mariner”…quite literally a fish out of water.
Pelosi’s old-line Democrat Country Club Politics by which political deals were made through genteel persuasion via clandestine meetings in the Congressional Cloakroom or the nearest upscale pub with a back room, is not going to work with the new Socialist ideologues recently elected to the House.
They are suspicious of Pelosi to begin with, probably viewing her to be as big a capitalist as President Trump.
Of course, these newbies are not the only House Dems who want to impeach Trump.
Other ideologues like Adam “little” Schitt…err…I mean Schiff want him brought up on charges as well, even though there is no proof of any wrongdoing whatsoever by the President.
President Trump, being very aware of Pelosi’s precarious position, added fuel to the fire at a Rose Garden Press Conference after yesterday’s meeting about the Border Wall by announcing her lack of interest in impeaching him.
It was an example of perfectly executed political jui-jitsu which left Pelosi’s Chief of Staff Drew Hamill desperately attempting to pry his boss out of the political bear trap that Trump had so deftly placed her in.
Pelosi and the new House Majority had spent the second half of this week patting themselves on the back for their assumption of power in the Lower House of Congress.
Then they began to engage in a battle of wits with President Donald J. Trump…only to find themselves woefully unarmed.
