Why Pelosi Declares She Is 'Not for Impeachment'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. speaks at an Economic Club of Washington luncheon gathering in Washington Friday

I mean, they deserve it, but it probably won't happen through impeachment. While Pelosi revoked Pence's office privileges, the aide said she is providing new office space for the White House legislative affairs team that they did not previously enjoy under the GOP majority. "He's just not worth it" wasn't exactly her finest rhetorical hour.

Green said "not at all", but Cavuto asked if he's concerned that having "looser standards" for impeachment could be used against a future Democratic president.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential campaign and whether there was any collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russian government.

"And he's just not worth it", Pelosi told the Post.

Her comments to The Washington Post riled some liberals, including new lawmakers who helped flip the chamber to Democratic control.

Waters recently tweeted that impeachment "is the only answer" for President Trump. About 48% of adults in the US said Trump should be impeached, while 40% opposed it, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll published March 8.

Lest anyone cite crumbling support for Richard Nixon during impeachment proceedings in 1974 (leading to his coerced resignation) as precedent for the same thing happening to Trump, the fact is this is a very different and more right-wing Republican Party than the one that weighed Nixon's fate back then, and Trump's approval rating among Republicans is much higher. But the United States has not followed suit and grounded the 737 MAX, and Boeing has said it has "full confidence" in its safety, as has Southwest Airlines and American Airlines, per The New York Times.

Many Democrats have been planning to move impeachment proceedings, but seniors in the party have been more circumspect about it.

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) also wouldn't rebuke Pelosi when he vowed to reintroduce new articles of impeachment.

Pelosi has long resisted calls to impeach the president, saying it's a "divisive" issue that should only be broached with "great care".

A momentous question hanging over Washington is whether investigations into President Donald Trump will prompt the U.S. Congress to try to remove him from office through the impeachment process set out in the U.S. Constitution.

Pelosi's comments drew criticism from some Democrats, but MSNBC panelists agreed she seemed to be making a shrewd political calculation - and driving the president insane in the process. This includes, most prominently, Trump's clear complicity in the Russian effort to interfere in the 2016 election.

Green expressed frustration at "status quo" voices who admit Trump is unfit to serve as president but refuse to take action. Tlaib and her fellow Muslim Democrat Ilhan Omar gained notoriety for endorsing the highly controversial anti-Israeli BDS movement, which is de facto outlawed in 26 USA states (with another 10 states considering their own anti-BDS legislation).

"But, again, impeachment is a divisive issue in our country, and let us see what the facts are, what the law is, and what the behavior is of the president", she added at the time.

Ocasio-Cortez was asked Tuesday about Pelosi's remarks and whether she had a different opinion on impeachment.
