Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that President Trump actually wants to be impeached because he believes the Republican-controlled Senate would bail him out, ABC News reports.
Said Pelosi: “I think the president wants us to impeach him. He knows it’s not a good idea to be impeached, but the silver lining for him is then, he believes, that he would be exonerated by the United States Senate.”
She added: “And, there is a school of thought that says, ‘If the Senate acquits you, why bring charges against him in the private sector when he’s no longer president?’ So when we go through with our case, it’s got to be ironclad. Ironclad.”
