"It wasn't a question of his being worth it. The Constitution was worth it. He had to be impeached."

Her “solemn and sober” tour. Not so much.
Via Fox News:
Not much seemed solemn or prayerful about Nancy Pelosi’s appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday night.
In Maher’s return from a holiday hiatus, the House speaker spoke gleefully about her colleagues impeaching President Trump and doubled down on her Russian-charged attacks against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
After Maher pointed out that Pelosi was initially “rather reluctant” to move forward with impeachment and waited until “it was inevitable,” the California Democrat responded that Trump simply gave his critics in the House “no choice” in the matter.
“The president was self-impeaching almost every single day,” Pelosi said.
“There are some people who have actually said that he wanted to be impeached,” Maher then observed. “Just for the record, being impeached is a bad thing, right?”
