Once Nancy Pelosi jumped onto the impeachment bandwagon she really went all in. And here we thought she was smarter than that.
But when we see her subtweeting a Republican senator like Joni Ernst it‚Äôs all the more obvious that we were wrong about that whole ‚Äėbeing smart‚Äô thing.
Take a look:
Republicans are now refusing to answer the simplest question: whether it‚Äôs acceptable for a president to pressure foreign countries to undermine our elections.
American elections should be decided by Americans, not by ‚Äúfavors‚ÄĚ from foreign governments.https://t.co/wrx4NhPT48

Nancy didn‚Äôt bother to tag Joni so she could defend herself or answer her smug and sanctimonious tweet. And it was a loaded question in the first place so we hardly blame Joni for not answering.
Luckily, the good senator from Iowas saw Nancy‚Äôs subtweet and responded.
Actually, American elections should be decided by ELECTIONS. Not politicians. I know you‚Äôre still upset about the results from 2016, but people here in Iowa would sure appreciate it if you spent less time playing political games and actually brought #USMCAnow up for a vote. https://t.co/YM07a1MXbl

In other words, sit down, Nancy.
Your interpretation of what pressure is lacks credibility since you have zero evidence. And, convicting Teddy Kennedy posthumously in the court of public opinion for soliciting the Russians to help him beat Reagan in ‚Äė84 is a little too late, but Hillary is still ripe.

I have no problem with Trump looking into corruption. That is his job. What I have a problem with is your lies and false accusations against a dully elected president. What the Democrats have done for the past 3 years is beyond ridiculous.

I suppose you believe that an impeachment vote by the democrat majority house will somehow magically remove Trump from office? Really? Of course you do ?

I wouldn't answer that loaded bs question either. Vote or shut up.

Oh, I don't know, Nanc. With so many Democrats on the board of foreign energy companies, Uranium One, letters from Dem senators pressuring foreign govs‚Ä¶ Let's drag them all before Congress under oath and see how it plays out. @realDonaldTrump

We like how ‚ÄėKathleen‚Äô thinks.
Let‚Äôs do this, Nan.
