Hilton: Pelosi Knows Impeachment Is 'Losing Proposition,' But Base Demanding It
"The Next Revolution" host Steve Hilton said on "Outnumbered" that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi privately knows that an attempt to impeach President Trump is a "losing proposition" but that her base is demanding it.
Melissa Francis reported that freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) is pushing ahead with a resolution to determine if Trump committed impeachable offenses, while Pelosi held a meeting with top caucus members to discuss how impeachment is not the top priority at this time.
Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) told reporters that his latest impeachment attempt will go forward because Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged collusion with Russia did not focus on Trump's "bigotry."
"Bigotry [is] emanating from the president's policies," he said.
Hilton slammed Green, saying that if he thinks Trump is a bigot, "beat him in an election."
"Nancy Pelosi knows impeachment is a losing proposition, [but] the base wants it," he said.
Lisa Boothe added that Pelosi and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairwoman Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) said they are not worried about Tlaib but more concerned with keeping newly-flipped Democrat seats in areas with tough reelection outlooks.
