Pelosi says she's opposed to impeaching Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not now support impeaching President Donald Trump despite thinking that he's unfit for the country's highest office, according to a Washington Post magazine interview published Monday. Which is exactly the point - there isn't.

Democrats face growing pressure from the left for impeachment, including a multimillion-dollar ad campaign from liberal billionaire Tom Steyer to build support for action against Trump. And she recognizes that it's nothing that will persuade anyone who hasn't wanted Trump ousted since Election Day 2016.

Pelosi said in an interview with The Washington Post that "unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country".

This, when last week's pathetic failure to confront Rep. Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitism already exposed them as in thrall to extremists.

While Pelosi's comments may help Democrats in competitive districts distance themselves from a divisive topic, they could frustrate some of those now in the middle of congressional investigations.

"They much prefer to actually focus on winning the next election rather than going for a process which would be seen by a large section of the population as actually an assault on democracy".

ASSOCIATED PRESS "I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States", House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said of Donald Trump.

Post: You said earlier you don't feel it's worth it to pursue impeachment. "It was unnecessary and the rest", she told the Post.

"By sending this signal that Democrats won't impeach, reasoning goes that will make it more likely that the report will get released publicly".

And without being overly naive or abstract, Pelosi should consider what her decision to write a blank check to the GOP on impeachable offenses means for the country. No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States'. "But if it's going to be a political disaster for us, then we're not going to do it". The House Judiciary Committee, which would oversee any impeachment inquiry, demanded documents last week from 81 individuals tied to Mr. Trump as it opened a burgeoning investigation into potential obstruction of justice and abuse of power. Our founders gave us the strongest foundation. Green moved in December 2017 to force the House to consider impeachment articles; the effort was killed on a 364-58 vote.

Pelosi is not alone in hesitating on impeachment.

Later in the interview, Pelosi struggled to define her relationship with Trump.

"My motivation is the one-in-five children who lives in poverty in America", said the Speaker, whose net worth has been estimated to be anywhere from $29 million to over $100 million in recent years. By declaring Trump essentially unimpeachable, the House speaker gives future presidents the impunity to act as these choose, virtually without effect.

"We have two investigations: the Mueller report that we're all anxiously awaiting and, as was indicated, the one thing I did see widely reported was that the witness said that other issues that he was aware of were under consideration by the Southern District of NY".
