The shift to ‘’Bribery’’ is a calculated move, but it adds up to invalidating the Democrat formula.
In her weekly press conference yesterday Nancy Pelosi answered a question about the impeachment inquiry. ‘‘This is not about Democrats,’’ she explained, ‘’this is for the American people. This is about Patriotism, it’s not about politics.’’ She then went on to describe some of the testimony from Wednesday but did so with a notable shift in the language.
In referencing the testimonies from that day she brought up ‘The President’s own appointee describing bribery.’’ That is a significant change from ‘’quid pro quo’’, and Pelosi’s usage here officially alters what had been the very thrust of this entire impeachment imbroglio. This suddenly sharp pivot in language from one term to another in the matter of a day reveals much about the Democrat effort to remove the President.
It shows they are not on firm footing with their accusations. It also disproves Pelosi’s claim of this not being political and, most revealing, it shows a rampant contradiction within their own argument.
