Response to StarfishSaver (Reply #19)

20. You did not answer my question.

Then why has Pelosi been consistent in making public statements moving public opinion away from impeachment rather than aggressively towards impeachment?

Pelosi has chosen to speak negatively of AOC (and others) through the press, effectively weakening them in the public sphere.

Pelosi should certainly be speaking to other members of the Democratic Congress (and her constituents in CA). How do you explain why Pelosi was booed in June regards impeachment at a meeting of the Democratic party in California in June 2019?

It is the Speaker's job specifically to influence public opinion and lead the party and nation. You are wrong that to influence public opinion and knowledge and to lead the party and nation is not part of Pelosi's job. If the Speaker does not take that role, who has that role? Are we a leaderless party? If anything, Pelosi has weakened the effort to impeach Trump. There is no question that Trump is worthy of impeachment.

You have had a pretty busy less than 6 months yourself talking down the movement within the Democratic party to impeach Trump at DU. You are an intelligent person.
