Nancy Pelosi criticized House Judiciary Dems during a closed-door meeting last week for being too aggressive in their actions to impeach the President.
Pelosi knows impeachment is political suicide for her so she has been doing a very careful dance around the subject with her doublespeak — and now she’s warning members of the Democrat Caucus to back off impeachment.
Pelosi also knows that the full House does not support impeaching Trump because a resolution introduced by Rep. Al Green was already shot down in a landslide.
Furthermore, McConnell made it very clear that impeachment would be DOA in the Republican-controlled Senate.
Pelosi criticized the panel’s handling of impeachment in harsh terms, complaining committee aides have advanced the push for ousting President Donald Trump far beyond where the House Democratic Caucus stands. Democrats simply don’t have the votes on the floor to impeach Trump, Pelosi said.
“And you can feel free to leak this,” Pelosi added, according to multiple people in the room. Pelosi’s office declined to comment on the meeting.
It was the latest sign of the widening schism between Pelosi and Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, two longtime allies who are increasingly in conflict over where to guide the party at one of its most critical moments.
Nadler’s Judiciary Committee recently approved procedures for an impeachment investigation into President Trump.
