Pelosi: Dems Could Have Impeached Bush But Didn't for Good of Country

Thursday at her weekly briefing, House Minority Leader Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked why when she was Speaker of the House she did not move forward on the requests of her members to impeach then-President George W. Bush over the arguments his administration made for entering into war with Iraq in 2003.

Pelosi accused Bush of being guilty of impeachable offense saying he “sent us into a war based on a false representation of the treat of weapons of mass destruction.” But she added after the “shameful, irresponsible an wrong” attempted impeachment of President Bill Clinton she “did not want to go down that path because of what it would mean for the American people.” 

Pelosi added that “was not something I wanted to put the country through” although she said the case against Bush sending us into war under a “false premise” was far more serious then anything Clinton had done.
