There are people that when they are in positions of power, they are only in those positions on paper for lack of a better term.
Fact of the matter is there are people out there that have practically ceremonial positions and that’s about all the power that they have. They either can’t really do anything of real note or have themselves in a position where they are one ill timed movement away from losing whatever power they have.
Nancy Pelosi is one of those people. Since she became Speaker once again earlier in the year there isn’t a whole heck of a lot that she has been able to do.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has had her hands on the gavel of power since January, but she may be far more vulnerable than her party believes.
That’s what Sen. Lindsey Graham insisted on Sunday, as he predicted that the California congresswoman who is on her second time around as speaker of the House could be dethroned sooner rather than later.
During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, the South Carolina Republican pointed out that the left’s incessant drive to impeach the president could backfire politically — and Pelosi could end up handing in her gavel at the same time.
“Her job is very much at risk,” Graham declared. “Nancy Pelosi is riding a bucking, wild bronco called the Democratic caucus.”
Check out the Graham interview below. The Pelosi discussion starts about the 3:55 mark.
The senator knows a few things about politics. He’s served in the House and Senate for nearly 30 years, dealing with four different presidents during that time.
In a warning that even his political opponents would be wise to heed, Graham predicted that a push to impeach Donald Trump for vague reasons could fracture the Democrat party.
“Seventy percent of the Democratic base wants President Trump impeached,” Graham said, according to The Hill. “[Pelosi] knows that impeachment would be political suicide because there’s no reason to impeach the president.”
