We Know Where Pelosi And Democrats Stand On Impeachment — Here’s What They Said About It In 1998


“Today the Republican majority is not judging the president with fairness, but impeaching him with a vengeance,” then-House Minority Leader Pelosi said on the House floor in December of 1998, strongly advocating against impeaching Clinton.

“In the investigation of the president, fundamental principles which Americans hold dear, fairness, privacy, checks and balances, have been seriously violated and why? Because we are here today because the Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton … Until the Republicans free themselves of that hatred, our country will suffer,” Pelosi continued.

In a speech from 1998, Nadler spoke about how impeachment would be bad for the U.S., as it would be telling Americans that the people’s vote does not count and that the election “must be set aside.” However, Nadler said on Sept. 16 that Trump should be impeached in order “to vindicate the Constitution,” before Pelosi was in favor of impeachment.
