Democratic Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), who co-authored an Op-Ed in September calling for the impeachment of President Trump, has flipped her script on impeachment. Today, she told reporters that she wants to wait for the full House Intel report to be released before making a decision.
As one of the 31 Democrats running for re-election in districts that President Trump won in 2016, Rep. Slotkin appears to be retreating from her public position from only a few months ago.
“I think the facts should lead that conversation, not politics,” Slotkin said today.
If Rep. Slotkin is serious about having the facts drive the conversation, she should publicly announce her opposition to the impeachment inquiry, today. Ironically, playing politics is exactly what Pelosi is doing by aimlessly searching for a crime when it clearly does not exist.
