Democrats are ramming ahead with their plans to impeachment President Donald Trump over a phone call he had back in July with Ukrainian President-elect Zelensky.
Despite the White House releasing the transcript of the call, which shows nothing illegal or impeachable occurred, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is still determined to impeach Trump in the Democratic-controlled House.
But Pelosi’s plan has been imploding in recent weeks, and she is clearly on edge.
That was more than obvious earlier this week when Democrats — including Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and Sen. Steny Hoyer — abruptly walked out from a White House meeting with Trump and Republicans.
Since their temper tantrum, a handful of Republicans have gone on record to expose Pelosi for how she treated the president, his staff, and Republicans during the meeting.
The meeting was supposed to be about the president withdrawing troops from Syria, but Pelosi was reportedly very angry and rude to Trump in the meeting.
Things quickly went off the rails after Trump reportedly called Pelosi a “third grade politician,” causing the Democratic leaders to leave in protest.
But according to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Pelosi was responsible for the breakdown of communication between Republicans and Democrats in the House, and called her behavior part of a “pattern” that was aimed at trying to make meetings unproductive.
“She storms out of another meeting–trying to make it unproductive,” McCarthy said. “The rest of the Democrats stayed and actually had a very productive meeting.”

But wait, it gets even worse.
White House principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley joined Fox News and confirmed reports that Pelosi treated White House staffers with “disrespect” after she stormed out of the meeting.
Gidley accused Pelosi of constantly hijacking meetings at the White House to “insult” the president and push her own agenda.
He added that she was “very rude” to staff when she left.
“I was just outside. I heard this activity the whole time. And I will say, when she actually left the room … she was extremely disrespectful to our staff, calling them incompetent,” Gidley said.
“And she does that repeatedly as well,” Gidley explained. “It is very disgraceful behavior for a Speaker of the House to act that way.”
Maybe Pelosi is angry because her plan to impeach Trump in the House has completely imploded.
A so-called whistleblower filed a complaint in August alleging that Trump directly asked Ukrainian President Zelensky to turn over DNC servers to his administration — but no such request appears in the transcript of the July 25 phone call.
The whistleblower also admitted in their complaint that they never heard the call and only received information about it from someone else.
After launching an investigation, the Office of Intelligence Community Inspector General found that the “whistleblower” had a “political bias” in favor of one of Trump’s rivals in the 2020 presidential election.
We now know that person is Joe Biden, meaning the whistleblower — who is a male CIA agent — previously worked with Biden when he was serving as the vice president.
For Democrats, this isn’t about trying to honor the will of the people — it’s quite the opposite.
This is nothing more than a political stunt to defy American voters and those who elected Trump into office back in 2016.
And when Pelosi gets called out for it, she throws a hissy fit, storms out of a meeting at the White House, and treats the president’s staff with contempt and disrespect.
