Thread: Everything Pelosi says about impeachment is consistent with the strategy of investigating aggressively, finding the smoking gun, and then impeaching with an ironclad case.

This article from June captures the key comments. Let’s take a look:

“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

Sounds like “we need the smoking gun first,” to me, no?
“You're wasting your time, unless the evidence is so conclusive that the Republicans will understand. Otherwise, it's a gift to the president. We take our eye off the ball."

Again, this means “we need the smoking gun in order to get a Senate conviction.”
“We can investigate Trump without drafting articles of impeachment. We aren’t going to go faster, we are going to go as fast as the facts take us.”

Clearly, this means “we are going to keep investigating until we get the smoking gun, however long that takes.” Right?
“Trump is goading us to impeach him. He’s becoming self-impeachable.”

This is Pelosi saying Trump is trying to force her hand with increasing lawlessness because he wants her to go without a smoking gun. But Nancy is not taking the bait. She’s going to get what she needs first!
"Nothing is off the table. What we do want to make is such a compelling case, such an ironclad case, that even the Republican Senate, which at the time seems to be not an objective jury, will be convinced of the path that we have to take as a country."

Clear as a bell!
I encourage you to read all the quotes in the linked article. I only highlighted the ones people find most confusing. Pelosi’s other comments are even clearer that she’s after the smoking gun.
