The act continues…
According to Nancy Pelosi, the Dems are deriving no pleasure out of the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
In a continuation of Pelosi’s stage-show that began with her announcement of the launch of the “formal impeachment inquiry,” Pelosi appeared at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, TX.
“This is a very sad time for our country. There is no joy in this,” claimed Pelosi,
“We must be somber, we must be prayerful and we must pursue the facts further to make a decision as to, Did this violate the Constitution of the United States? Which I believe it did.”
Pelosi went on to say,
“I’m heartbroken about it. I would just have hoped that there would be something exculpatory, something that would say, ‘This is not what it seems to be,’ but that’s not where we are right now. I think that right now there’s a cover up of the cover up. This really goes beyond.”

In another separate interview with MSNBC, Pelosi declared that AG Bill Barr has "gone rogue" and that she thinks its just "sad!"

ABC News has more to say about Pelosi's self-proclaimed heartbreak over the impeachment inquiry:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Saturday that she is heartbroken and prayerful as House Democrats move forward with their impeachment inquiry and that President Donald Trump's actions left her no other choice.
"This is a very sad time for our country. There is no joy in this," she said. "We must be somber, we must be prayerful and we must pursue the facts further to make a decision as to, Did this violate the Constitution of the United States? Which I believe it did."
Pelosi's appearance at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin on Saturday comes just four days after she announced the U.S. House of Representatives would pursue a formal impeachment inquiry of Trump.
"I'm heartbroken about it. I would just have hoped that there would be something exculpatory, something that would say, 'This is not what it seems to be,' but that's not where we are right now," she added. "I think that right now there's a cover up of the cover up. This really goes beyond."
Her conversation with Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith was the headlining event of the festival, a weekend of dialogue featuring some of the biggest names in politics.
Townhall also commented:
Pelosi said the political risk "doesn't matter" because the president took an oath that he needs to uphold.
"We cannot have a President of the United States undermining his oath of office. His loyalty is to his oath of office," she explained.
he argued Trump is undermining the United States' national security and the integrity of our elections.
"Our elections are the fundamental point of our democracy," Pelosi said.
Pelosi sure is changing her tune. It wasn't long ago that she refused to move forward with impeaching Trump. Now we're suddenly at this major crossroads where election meddling took place? She announced her official impeachment inquiry before anyone knew what the transcripts of President Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said. It's hard for anyone to take this political charade seriously, especially when there's absolutely zero evidence of quid pro quo.
