Nancy Pelosi's Impeachment Comments Divide Democrats on Ideology, Pragmatism

  • Pelosi I'm not for impeachment of Trump

"I'm not for impeachment", Pelosi, the top US Democrat, said in a Washington Post interview published on Monday.

When Pelosi says "he's just not worth it", she is implicitly saying that Trump in fact poses no real dangers to the republic.

The comment came after House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., when asked Monday by Fox News about the push to impeach President Trump responded, "we've got 62 new (Democratic) members". "If you desire to stop me, you but only have to change the rules so that I can't bring a vote on impeachment". The Republican Party has largely shrugged off Trump being implicated in a bona-fide crime - Michael Cohen's campaign finance violations.

"At least two wild cards remain: federal prosecutors in NY who are scrutinizing Mr. Trump's business and inaugural committee, and Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel who is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation and whether the president obstructed justice".

By taking impeachment of Mr Trump off the table, Dr Smith believes we're seeing the beginnings of how Democrats plan to campaign in 2020.

"No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States", Pelosi told the Post, adding that he was "ethically unfit, intellectually unfit, curiosity-wise unfit".

Rep. Al Green, the Texas Democrat who introduced impeachment articles previous year, said he will try to force a vote. "And he's just not worth it".

A recent poll has found that many Americans favor impeachment for Trump. Rather, she says, the investigations need to take their course and impeachment, if warranted, will be clear.

Still, those who are hopeful for impeachment are reading into Nancy Pelosi's statement that if there were credible evidence and something substantial an impeachment process could begin. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said "I agree" in response to Pelosi's words.

Democratic Representative Jamie Raskin, a Judiciary Committee member, said in an interview that the "oversight function is the critical thing right now". "I thought it was absolutely brilliant", Cummings said.

Pelosi is no doubt remembering the Clinton impeachment and how the Republicans wound up making the president into a sympathetic figure for much of the public. Although she still doubts Mr. Trump's fitness for office, the California Democrat said the process of impeachment would be too damaging to the country. And although Mueller has managed to indict and convict several Trump associates, none are guilty of active collusion during the 2016 election period.

The questionable actions of this president and his administration are so numerous that no fewer than six House committees have claims to jurisdiction over various aspects of them.

"The reasoning goes that the Attorney-General might be unwilling to actually release it publicly if it looks like Democrats are going to try to use it to draft articles of impeachment". Nor do we have a President who gave daylight through his questionable morals for an impeachment proceeding conducted in egregious bad faith. Mr. Cavuto, we live to exercise liberty and justice for all.

"She is lowering expectations about the prospect of impeachment and reminding people of the gravity of that move and the impact it would have politically in dividing the country, ' Rep. Gerry Connelly of Virginia told CNN".

She said Pelosi's comment also showed once again that the speaker "is as clever as she is tough".
