Is Pelosi Waiting for "An Ironclad Case" before moving forward on Impeachment?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Democratic Primaries forum).

She seems to be saying that.

Here's what she said today:

This morning we heard a patriotic American make his presentation. I have the deepest respect for special counsel ó well former special counsel Mueller and what he had to say. He indicated if he saw any evidence that the president was innocent, he would have let us know. If he had any evidence that the president was not guilty, he would have let us know, but he didnít. I think that was very, very important. I have the deepest respect for him and thank him and his team for the presentation of facts that will further lead us to help us in the Congress, in the courts. This is a very valuable contribution. Iím gravely disappointed in the justice department for their attitude, misrepresentation of the Mueller report to begin with. They are hiding behind something that you could never find in the constitution that the president is above the law and their misrepresentations even under oath by the attorney general to the Congress of the United States.

We will continue on our path which was led by our six chairmen. Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Elijah Cummings, Maxine Waters. All of them have a piece of this. Last week we had three victories in the courts. One Elijah Cummings, the presidentís accountant, they have to share the information. Two Maxine Waters which is they have to share the information and three not related to the Russian investigation or related to other problems we have with the president and his view of the Constitution. The court said that he canít use Defense Department money to build his wall.

----
Where they will lead us, we shape see ó Shall see. Nothing is off the table, but we do want to make a compelling case, such an ironclad case, that even the Republican Senate which seems to be not an objective jury will be convinced of the path that we have to take as a country.

2. She specifically said "make" not "wait for".

 

but we do want to make a compelling case, such an ironclad case, that even the Republican Senate which seems to be not an objective jury will be convinced of the path that we have to take as a country.

4. I agree, except that I don't believe for a moment

 

that the Republican Senate, as the article refers to them, will accept a compelling, ironclad case. I think they're all so deep into this mess that they have to stick in there until they can leave the public eye and fade away and collect their pensions.

6. That's basically what she said, but she gives them a way out.

 

She can't totally lock the door on them changing their mind, even if she thinks it's unlikely.

5. I trust Speaker Pelosi - if she says let's proceed on our current course I am okay with that.

 

But that's just me.
