Thursday morning, ABC’s “Today” ran a highly speculative segment in which host Savannah Guthrie prodded Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) about whether it was possible to indict President Donald J. Trump while he is a sitting president.
There is no indication, mind you, that the President has committed a crime, despite what the mainstream press has billed as Russian “collusion.”
“I do not think that that is, uh conclusive,” Pelosi said when asked about whether Department of Justice’s long-standing tradition of not indicting sitting presidents is valid.
“Let’s just see what Mueller does,” she said. “Let’s spend their time on getting results for the American people.
That Pelosi said “getting results” is telling. Democrats will not end this obviously bogus investigation until they get the result that they want – an indicted president, which Pelosi now seems to think is acceptable.
“Everything indicates that a president can be indicted after he is no longer president of the United States,” Pelosi said, dancing around the the actual question about a sitting president being indicted.
“A sitting president [can be indicted] when he’s no longer president of the United States,” she said curiously.
When Guthrie finally drilled down to the ultimatum, whether Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III could seek an indictment against Trump while in office, Pelosi cracked.
“I’m saying that that is an open discussion,” she said.

Nine of the 2020 Forbes Ten Wealthiest Americans Are Democrat-Affiliated Liberal Megadonors
Pure oligarchy, greed and corruption.
Forbes Magazine released its annual list of the 400 wealthiest people in the world this week, and nine of the top ten wealthiest Americans featured on the list appear to be staunch Democrats and liberal donors.
Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Steve Ballmer, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Alice Walton were named as the wealthiest American citizens, all possessing a personal net worth of over 60 billion dollars. Nearly all of them are closely affiliated with Democrat politics in various capacities, most commonly as lavish donors to Democrat campaigns and liberal political causes.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is the only exception, being a figure who appears unaffiliated with the political left, having donated considerably more money to Republicans than Democrats in the 2018 election cycle, although he donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Musk has vaguely affiliated himself with some conservatives, and opposed some of California’s coronavirus lockdown policies.
Bezos himself reportedly personally encouraged Mike Bloomberg to run for President, having feuded with President Trump personally at length over Amazon’s utilization of the Postal Service. He hasn’t donated to Biden, but his general affiliation with Democratic politics is indicated through his tacit Bloomberg endorsement.
Alice Walton, a Walmart heiress, comes from a traditionally Republican family, but is a Biden donor with an extensive history of supporting Democrats. The rest of the top 10 are reliable Democrat donors, donating to Republicans rarely, if at all. Mark Zuckerberg occasionally depicts himself as a political centrist independent of Silicon Valley neoliberal politics, but the Facebook platform engages in prolific censorship of conservatives, without applying the same tactics to the political left.
The wealthiest billionaire oligarchs are determined to use their political power to crush the life prospects of the everyday American and the traditional middle-class American way of life. The political right and real conservatives should oppose them at every turn, reinstating an economic vision that upholds small businesses over multinational corporations and entrepreneurship at a local, community level as an alternative to the domination of monopoly billionaires.
