House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered a statement excoriating President Donald Trump after the public statement by special counsel Robert Mueller, and she was lambasted on social media over it — by liberals.
Pelosi released a statement after the briefing, but did not even mention the word “impeachment” in the text.
“[Mueller] stated that the decision not to indict stemmed directly from the Department of Justice’s policy that a sitting President cannot be indicted,” said Pelosi in the statement. “Despite Department of Justice policy to the contrary, no one is above the law – not even the President.” . . .
Democrats and other opponents of the president fumed at Pelosi for not rushing headlong into impeaching the president.
“Something is VERY wrong w/ Pelosi’s answers today,” responded former Florida Democratic candidate Pam Keith. “Does she have no idea who she serves, who her base is, what her legacy will be, what the job demands?”

Something is really off here. No way should we be BEGGING her to do what virtually every lifelong Dem would do insinctually.

Recently I wrote an article saying @SpeakerPelosi is not a progressive. She has now proved my point spectacularly. When @justinamash is to the left of you, you might not be a progressive! https://t.co/CGPGDFmOGL

So this is #Pelosi's "secret plan/long game"?
