House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is testing a new idea about “patriotism” — and it has left critics totally speechless.
During her weekly news conference on Thursday, Pelosi implied that Democrats are trying to impeach President Donald Trump… because they love their country.
“We are going to do the right thing. That’s just the way it is. And it’s going to be based on fact and law and patriotism, not partisanship or anything else,” Pelosi began.

It’s not a political stunt, Pelosi claims – it’s what George Washington and Thomas Jefferson would have wanted.
“I see in some of your Metropolitan Journals or other reporting that, ‘Oh, it’s political, they don’t want…’ It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with pluribus unum and our founders, the guidance they gave us,” she added.
Pelosi then said that that “impeachment is one of the most divisive things” and acknowledged that it could backfire.
She said she just wants the “truth be made known to the American people,” and supports the plethora of investigations into the Trump administration that have already been launched by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.
In other words, Pelosi and Democrats are now trying to argue that they want to impeach Trump – for no reason other than they dislike him – because they are patriots who love their country.
Pelosi has been on a roll lately ratcheting up bizarre and extreme ideas.

During an interview with The New York Times, Pelosi claimed that Trump may not accept the results of the 2020 election if he loses and implied that Democrats must be “prepared” to take action.
“We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that,” Pelosi said.
Unsurprising to many, Pelosi is the only one who has struggled to accept the results of an outcome.
Despite Mueller’s investigation completely vindicating the president and nearly the entire report being released to the public, Pelosi tried claiming that Attorney General William Barr broke the law and should be jailed.
Last Thursday, Pelosi accused Barr of lying to Congress in relation to the letter that was sent to him by Mueller in late March.
“He lied to Congress. He lied to Congress. That’s a crime,” Pelosi said to reporters.

When asked whether Barr should go to jail, the speaker said: “There’s a process involved here.”
Mueller wrote to Barr on March 27 and took issue with the media taking the findings in his final report out of context.
In the letter, Mueller encouraged Barr to clean it up and provide more information.
However, Mueller admitted to Barr that the attorney general did not mischaracterize his findings — the media did.
Despite this, Pelosi still argued that Barr broke the law because he did not reveal Mueller’s letter to the public and implied the attorney general should be jailed.
Adding more fuel to the fire, Pelosi also wants other members of Trump’s administration thrown in jail for not cowering to the Democrats witch hunts and demands.
During an event Wednesday with The Washington Post, host Robert Costa asked Pelosi about Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin refusing to give House Democrats Trump’s tax returns.
“Could you hold the Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin in contempt? Some Democrats have even raised the prospect of arresting the Treasury Secretary if he does not comply…” Costa asked.
Pelosi: “We do have a little jail down in the basement of the Capitol.”
Pelosi’s answer for everything is to apparently jail Trump administration officials and remove the president from office.
And, she hopes Americans are gullible enough to believe that Democrats are only trying to impeach Trump because of “patriotism.”
