Will Trump Acquittal Bring Pelosi Resignation? The pressure for Nancy Pelosi’s resignation as Speaker is on. Get the popcorn. Jeffrey Lord January 28, 2020 The President wins, the Speaker loses. That was the net result of the drive-by then-Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich to impeach President Bill Clinton. Gingrich got his way, and the GOP-controlled House impeached the President. The fly in the ointment? The Senate had its trial of Clinton – and acquitted him. The November elections, in which House Republicans campaigned on the Clinton impeachment, turned into an unexpected disaster for House Republicans – they lost five seats when expected to increase their majority. But it was a personal disaster for Speaker Gingrich. The very next day after the election disaster, the Republican House Caucus revolted against their Speaker. Within a blink, Gingrich announced he would resign the Speakership – and his longtime Georgia House seat as well. As the Senate trial of President Trump proceeds, the inevitable question ensues. The President is overwhelmingly expected to be acquitted. Which means Nancy Pelosi and her Party of the Shampeachment will have lost. The pressure for Nancy Pelosi’s resignation as Speaker is on. Get the popcorn. It doesn’t take a wizard to predict that restless House Democrats, like their Republican predecessors in 1998, will finally revolt at Pelosi’s leadership – and demand her resignation from the Speakership. The House Democratic Caucus is effectively in the control of its far-left Members. Nancy Pelosi has the title, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her squad of left-wingers are calling the shots. Indeed, AOC herself has complained this way, saying of her party: “We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party. The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party.” Clearly, this is something Ocasio-Cortez is determined to change – and her first target is the House. Which means: the pressure for Nancy Pelosi’s resignation as Speaker is on. Get the popcorn.
