House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi put a serious damper on left-wing fantasies throughout the nation, announcing that impeaching President Trump is “off the table” should Democrats regain control of the House after the midterm elections.

Pelosi cited 2006, the year she and her party gained control of Congress amid calls for the impeachment of President George W. Bush to illustrate that she has stood firm against the process unless there’s actually some evidence of wrongdoing.

What the Democrats have right now isn’t enough, she intimated.

“Going into the [2006] election, I said it’s off the table. I didn’t mean it’s off the table if you had some goods. If somebody has information, then we can act upon it,” she said in a Rolling Stone interview. “But from what we know now, it’s off the table.”

“Even with Trump. If you got something, show it,” Pelosi added. “But I’m not going after it.”

She also shared her view that unhinged impeachment talk is a “gift to the Republicans.”

“I wouldn’t not impeach the president for political reasons,” Pelosi explained. “But I wouldn’t impeach him for political reasons, either. That’s just not what it’s supposed to be about. I think it’s not unifying for the country.”

Maxine Waters will be hardest hit by this news.

Now that the leading Democrat in the House has weighed in on the question of impeachment, another question arises: Is Pelosi being truthful with her intentions or is she simply trying to muzzle Democrats who keep harping on it because it’s a losing campaign strategy?

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani isn’t buying what Nancy is selling.

“I have to listen to all the people in the Democratic party, not just the leaders. And they could be lying. They could be lying because they don’t want it as a campaign issue,” Giuliani said during an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash. “You don’t think Nancy Pelosi wants to impeach him? Give me a break.”

“I have said over and over again that I don’t think we should be talking about impeachment,” Pelosi said during a press briefing in April. “I’ve been very clear right from the start.”
