As the horrors of last Wednesday and the GOP’s complicity in them have become more evident, an unlikely savior has emerged to save the Republican Party from years of electoral exile.

That person is Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

It seems unlikely Pelosi would want to rescue a party that has so vilified her over the years, smearing Democratic candidates as having her “San Francisco values” and the like. And she has responded in kind, often earning every ounce of the GOP-led rebuke she has received.

But by bringing articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for his role in inciting the Capitol riots, Pelosi could hasten her opponents’ renewal. If she is successful in not only removing Trump from office, but barring him from ever holding elective office again, it would allow the Republican Party to shed the cement boots pulling it into the abyss.
