As Twitchy reported, it was just a couple of weeks ago that Speaker Nancy Pelosi sparked a Resistance meltdown by suggesting that Democrats forget about impeaching President Trump: “He’s just not worth it,” she told the Washington Post.
Now that the Mueller report has been released and dashed the hopes of those who hoped it would provide the proof needed to impeach the president, Pelosi is again telling her caucus to focus on their agenda and message, not Russia.
Nancy Pelosi told her leadership team today that her caucus should focus on their agenda and their message – and not the Mueller probe and Russia interference. She and her top lieutenants view the matter as a distraction and believe they should focus on pocketbook issues. @mkraju

things are bad when Pelosi is the sanest voice in the room

It's come to this… Nancy Pelosi is now a moderate. https://t.co/W0sqMSazja

Too late. She has zero control over her party.

LOL, okay Nancy. Get your soldiers out there pushing for the green new deal, open borders and higher taxes.

That is scary. I mean that seriously, do everyday Americans see how radicalized the Democratic Party has become?

How radicalized has the Democratic Party become? We’ve already heard from a few Democrats in Congress who are holding on to the hope that there’s something in the Mueller report they haven’t seen yet that will result in a criminal indictment, and nothing will get Rep. Maxine Waters to stop talking about impeachment, ever.
To us, Pelosi seems to be making perfect sense. There’s an election coming up very quickly, and people like Beto O’Rourke need to know what it is they’re supposed to be pushing out on the road. But Pelosi didn’t make many friends with her call to focus on the Democratic agenda.
I must have shifted into a different timeline without realizing it.

Meanwhile Trump & Lindsey Graham will launch retaliatory attacks agains Schiff, Nadler, John Brennan and others. If she thinks the Mueller Report isn't important, she's not doing her job.

Yeah, absolutely not

Yes maybe if she just ignores it, it’ll just go away

Walk and chew gum. Congress can focus on policy and also conduct oversight via committee.
Looking the other way on oversight because you think it’s a bad political strategy sets a bad precedent whether you do it to hide wrongdoing or avoid backlash. It invites abuse of power.

Do both or I walk.

Yeah, it's not like their job is to serve as a check to presidential power and wrongdoing. Better to focus on legislation that'll just get torpedoed by McConnell.

Politics!? When the state of the union and the survival of American democracy is at stake!? Do a poll! See how people are feeling. People are in despair!

I am an organizer & I will not organize, volunteer or give one penny 2 Democrats if they don’t fight! We waited 4 the right thing 2 happen 4 Merrick Garland, Hillary Clinton & TrumpRussia meanwhile Republicans fought dirty and won. We are getting NOWHERE by taking the high road!

And this why Trump is on his way of getting re-elected.

Russian interference is a distraction. And Nancy is compromised too. Good night, America
— CheekyMaru ???✨ (@AJDMaru) March 26, 2019
Then she .@SpeakerPelosi will do so at her own peril. Millions of us want her to focus on what happened. If she's not interested in protecting our votes and ensuring this never happens again, we can assure her we won't be voting in 2020. What would the point be?
— FOUNTAINofTRUTH (@ryannicholos) March 25, 2019
@SpeakerPelosi you are wrong
— Faith (@margab18) March 25, 2019
i.e. "It's time to accept that he's going to get away with everything".
— Christo Koenig (@ChristoKoenig) March 25, 2019
And this is why the GOP gets away with their corruption and crimes.
Dems just roll over.
— Paul Ryan’s Spine (@BackboneNo) March 25, 2019
Yea, the fact that we have an illegitimate president who has done nothing about Russian interference and will be elected again because of that interference is a distraction.
— Auti75 (@Auti1975) March 25, 2019
Oh no you don't.
The Democrat leadership is responsible for Mueller's investigation.
Don't you dare tell us NOW to move on!
THIS MAKES ME MAD!!!!!
I WANT THE REPORT I PAID FOR.
— 100%RealWood (@100realwood) March 26, 2019
The Democrats can and should do both: keep pushing the Russian collusion narrative while sticking to their agenda.
NOW that they were viciously humiliated. Now – after they caused the greatest scandal this country ever faced – the attempted coup of a duly elected president. But, hey, yeah about your message – raise taxes, infanticide, open borders, destroy the economy, anti-Semitism
