Texas Tribune Festival: Nancy Pelosi to President Donald Trump: "You've come into my wheelhouse now"

"Let us be prayerful. Let us be solemn. Let us try not to make it further divisive," Pelosi said at The Texas Tribune Festival. "But we cannot ignore our oath of office do defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic."


by Abby Livingston, Texas Tribune

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi painted herself as a once-reluctant but now fully engaged general amid her party's push for an impeachment inquiry, in an onstage interview at The Texas Tribune Festival on Saturday.

To make her point, she used sweeping, solemn language to underscore her view that what is happening at the U.S. Capitol is an existential moment in American history.

"If this activity, this pattern of behavior were to prevail ... then it's over for the republic," she said. "We will have the equivalent of a monarchy."

"Let us be prayerful. Let us be solemn. Let us try not to make it further divisive," she added. "But we cannot ignore our oath of office do defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic."

3. I believe that it was sold out well in advance.

I'm going to be in Austin for a brief time on Friday and Sunday of next week before I go to my college homecoming in Georgetown. I haven't been there in about five years. BTW, I keep almost every town that I go to a little bit weird. Have fun!

There were also a few of the primary candidates at the Tribune Fest.

2. Excellent interview with Nancy Pelosi!

Thank you, TexasT!


In her most extensive interview about impeachment since she announced plans to open an inquiry this week, Pelosi described herself as "heartbroken" over the revelation that President Donald Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. White House disclosures of the conversation and that Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine prior to the conversation unleashed a firestorm in Washington last week.

"I think right now there is a cover-up of a cover-up," she said.

When asked why she moved from the strongest backstop against impeachment to the leader of the effort, she chose brevity: "The facts."

"I have handled this with great care, with moderation, with great attention to what we knew was a fact and what was an allegation.

Yes.. behind the scenes that those dissing and insulting Nancy, and the Dems working closely with her, seemingly didn't even think about.

5. Mahalo Cha, in deed, as the New Yorker article calls her, Nancy is an extremely stable genius

In this ungodly hour of 3am im up & trying to catch up on the news i almost laughed out loud reading Nancy's comment in this article that Dumpster's charm offensive is really offensive & had to stifle it for fear i'd wake up the sleepy hubby . Boy am i glad we have such amazing leaders in Nancy, Schiff, Cummings &Nadler, among others. Im so thankful for Joe Biden, Ms. warren, Beto, Buttigieg, Kamala & most of the other Dems potus candidates. While we've all been shell shocked by the depth & magnitude of corruption brought by this hellish administration, i believe our brave & highly competent Dems leaders will get us through this.
