Cenk Uygur: Pelosi Opposes Impeachment Because Trump Is Good For Democratic Fundraising


THE YOUNG TURKS: On The Young Turks, Cenk Uygur argued that Nancy Pelosi's real motivation for opposing the impeachment of Donald Trump is that the president is, "Good for fundraising for Democrats." On Monday's show, Uygur and Ana Kasparian discussed Pelosi's decision to reject impeachment.

"This is Nancy Pelosi choosing not to do the right thing. Why? Because of politics," Uygur said, arguing that Pelosi fears making Republicans angry by supporting impeachment.

He added that this tactic is taking away energy from the left, "Now they have surrendered and Pelosi has said 'we are not going to resist.'"

Uygur pointed to a quote from the Speaker calling Trump a good organizer and fundraiser for Democrats to explain what he believes is the real factor to Pelosi opposing impeachment, "Good for ratings, good for fundraising for Democrats!" He went on to argue that Democrats are more willing to fight Progressives instead of Republicans because they can end money in politics and, "That's bad for business."
