President Trump’s escalated attacks on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are proving to be just the gift she needed to unify her caucus.

Pelosi, in recent weeks, has faced a growing clamor from rank-and-file liberals urging Democratic leaders to launch impeachment proceedings against the president — a tactic Pelosi regards as premature.

But Trump’s broadsides against the Speaker late last week — and her own sharp denunciations of the president’s conduct and demeanor — have rallied Pelosi’s troops behind her at a crucial moment in the oversight debate, helping fortify the dam against impeachment before it broke open.
