Nancy Pelosi has ruled out the impeachment of President Trump unless something new arises and the impeachment is bipartisan. She knows that if the House impeaches Trump and the Senate does not remove him from office, especially with the 1,756 investigations the House is planning.
The Democrats would need 20 GOP Senators to vote with them to remove the president. After the failed FBI investigation and the failed Mueller investigation, a failure to find crimes for which to impeach Trump are nonexistent. But Rep Al Green says he will bring impeachment to a vote for the third time because the president is a racist.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is ruling out impeaching President Donald Trump, arguing in an interview with the Washington Post Monday that “he’s just not worth it.”
“Impeachment is so divisive to the country 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. And he’s just not worth it,” Pelosi told the Post.
Pelosi’s remarks come as House Democrats are expanding their investigation into President Trump and his allies, requesting documents from over 80 individuals and entities regarding the president’s finances and communications. Some lawmakers are hopeful their findings will lead to uncovering an impeachable offense.
However, congressional investigators such as House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) are warning against calling for impeachment, urging caution until the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. “Let us see what the facts are, what the law is, and what the behavior is of the president,” Pelosi said when pressed on impeachment at a press briefing last Tuesday.
