Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-California) called House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-California) “not accountable” after he allegedly supported overturning the two impeachment trials against former President Donald Trump.
McCarthy to apologize to Trump for failing to endorse and comment on a 2024 GOP nominee public doubts on the former president’s prospects vowed to hold a vote in the House of Representatives to remove impeachment proceedings from Trump’s record, a source said Politically. The outlet said another source denied McCarthy made such a promise.
“Kevin plays politics, it’s not even clear if he can constitutionally stamp these things out,” said Pelosi, who served as a public speaker for eight years. “If he wants to get his members on point, want to get his members on point in difficult races, that’s a decision he has to make, but that’s not responsible.”
She continued, “This is about being afraid. As I said before, Donald Trump is the puppeteer and what does he do all the time? Light up the strings. These people look pathetic.”
Politico, which reported on it “secret” deletion promise Last week, he noted that McCarthy’s own leadership team is divided over the revisit of Trump’s ignominious record.
Representatives: Elise Stefanik (RN.Y.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) resolutions introduced Last month, the two impeachments against Trump were reversed. It is uncertain whether the Republican lawmakers who voted to impeach Trump, namely Reps. Dan Newhouse (R-Washington) and David Valadao (R-California), would support such an attempt.
“I understand why individuals would want to do it and we would look at it,” he said at the time.
