“‘I’m not for impeachment,’ Pelosi says, potentially roiling fellow Democrats” https://a.msn.com/r/2/BBUDZTQ?m=en-us&referrerID=

“… 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.

What could be more compelling than collusion with enemies, tax evasion, or exploiting the powers of office for personal gain? How high is this bar? And if this country were any more divided, it would be North and South Korea. For what (or whose) status quo is she going to bat?

Appeasement, peace-at-any-cost Democrats like Pelosi and Schumer are the reason Republicans are running roughshod over the country. Politicans who hide behind this posturing of the high road as a handy excuse to do nothing have given the far right license to foist their agenda on the majority of the country–a tyranny of the fat, stupid, and lazy–literally.

At some point, one has to question whether the Democrat establishment represents progressive causes or represents the same plutocrats as the Republicans–a faux-resistance to monied interests that operates to keep real progressives disillusioned and impotent.
