Pelosi Opposes ‘Divisive’ Efforts to Impeach Trump: ‘He’s Just Not Worth It’

"I'm representing my district", she commented on the matter Monday evening to Rachael Bade with The Washington Post.

"If you desire to stop me, you but only have to change the rules so that I can't bring a vote on impeachment".

"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".

"He's just not worth it". Days ago, longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified that Trump was part of a criminal conspiracy to violate campaign finance laws.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff told CNN that he agreed with Pelosi and that a "failed impeachment isn't a good idea". Like the other Democratic leaders who have refused to back impeachment, she remembers the acrimonious battles over the impeachment of Bill Clinton, which she called "horrible for the country". "So let's see what that is", Pelosi told reporters in her weekly news conference February 28, the day after the Cohen hearing.

The vice president rarely used the space, but it was a symbolic gesture of the warm relationship Pence enjoyed with Ryan and the House GOP.

To be clear: Pelosi may be right in believing that, for now, impeachment is not the best option, for some of the reasons referenced above.

"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. Russian Federation has denied USA intelligence community's finding that Moscow interfered in the U.S. political arena.

Then she answered: 'All of the above. No. No.

"I don't know, I would have to see it, I think it would be a mistake to force a vote in the next couple of weeks", Engel told The Post.

While acknowledging that she found Trump "ethically unfit". Intellectually unfit. Curiosity-wise unfit. The state-by-state contests to decide the Republican and Democratic presidential nominees begin February 3, with the Iowa caucuses.

Despite a growing chorus of senior Democrats faulting the president for tearing down USA institutions and even going against the rule of law with his attacks on investigators, Pelosi portrayed US institutions as intact. When a reporter said all, she said he was not. "I do it because I love my country". And the times have found us now. But maybe not two [Trump] terms. Would an impeachment help rally the Democratic party together or cause division?

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has become notorious for calling for impeachment since the day Trump was elected president.

But McGovern - who has been on the Hill since he began as a House staffer in 1981 - says Pelosi is doing the right thing by not moving to impeach. "'He's just not worth it?' Is defending our legal system 'worth it?'" tweeted liberal activist Tom Steyer.

Is holding the President accountable "worth it?"

Two House Democrats, Reps. Her greatest leadership talents have been her ability to find the center of gravity and to maintain her focus when political passions are running high. 'How would I describe my relationship to the president? She could argue that the Senate would thwart any attempt to remove him from office and so Trump should resign instead. "I don't usually talk about him this much".
