After what has seemed like countless attempts, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is finally calling it quits on trying to impeach President Trump. Pelosi even flipped her narrative with the Washington Post, telling them 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, having requested documents from over 80 individuals and entities regarding their finances and communications. Some lawmakers are hopeful their probe will uncover impeachable offenses.
In addition to the speaker, other top Democrats have also voiced opposition to discussions about impeachment, including House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who has urged 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. Up until today, Pelosi publically agreed with Nadler, telling reporters last Tuesday that she first wanted to “see what the facts are, what the law is, and what the behavior is of the president,” before discussing impeachment. Now, it appears the California Democrat has all but written off the move.
Yet, some Democrats have signaled they will ignore House leadership and move forward with their own plans to bring impeachment proceedings against President Trump. In a recent appearance on MSNBC, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) claimed the president’s actions have already “crossed the threshold of what was brought for impeachment” against President Richard Nixon. “[W]hat we know is that the president’s behavior has already crossed the threshold of what was brought for impeachment before the House in the Nixon administration and the Clinton administration. In fact, he crossed those thresholds in the first weeks or months of office. And so, that is another means, if these other means fail, to control this president,” he said.
Rep. Al Green (D-TX) announced last month that he will bring a vote on impeachment to the House floor for a third time, despite failing to hold a successful vote in 2017 and 2018. The Texas Democrat said he will propose the measure regardless of Mueller’s findings, vowing to “act on Trump’s bigotry.”
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who previously faced rebuke for pledging to “impeach the motherfucker” — a reference to President Trump — recently said she will bring articles of impeachment by the end of March.
is there away we can impeach PELOSI, Its about time.
If it is true that Nancy Pelosi has decided that impeachment is totally off the table, then she has improved her standing with me a minute amount; however, the rest of the fools who continue to waste the taxpayers time and money pursuing impeachment and not doing the job that they were elected to because of their own personal hatred of a duly elected President that they do not know personally need to resign from office and let people who will listen to the People and do the job replace them. I am just one of MANY who are sick and tired of all of this vindictive rhetoric that is constantly being encouraged by the liberal medial. We want smaller government, NOT more overbearing control by government. We want the southern border secured; no more amnesties for illegals (no matter what country they come from); enforcement of our immigration laws; no more sanctuary cities, counties, or states; no more threats of taking away our Second Amendment Rights; no more talk of Socialist policies like Medicare for all at the expense of the taxpayers or any other policy that will bankrupt the People and America; ending of Anchor Babies receiving citizenship; no more talk of taxing businesses and the rich to a point that they cannot afford to invest in America and produce jobs for the People; and the end of so many more harmful policies that are destroying this Country. The racial divide is fueled by the Democrats and became so bad under the Obama era because both of the Obamas are so prejudice against anyone who has white or lighter skin that they have to choke when in their presence…if you listen to things they say, you can’t miss it. I love my country and I am disgusted by what has been happening. IT HAS TO STOP!
Maybe Pelosi ought to tell Schiff, Green, Murphy,Ocasio-Cortez and Tliab what her plans are regarding impeachment…and the simple fact that just because you don’t like Trump you shouldn’t be wasting tax payer dollars on an impeachment for which there are zero grounds……she should do that, the real question is whether anybody in the Democrat side of the house even bothers to listen to what she has to say anymore. It’s pretty obvious she’s so concerned about not alienating that far left liberal socialist side of her party that she’s become completely ineffective. It could be that she has an undisclosed illness, as witness her mumbling, losing her rtain of thought, and slurring her speech that something is amiss.Or at her advanced age she just doesn’t care anymore. The young socialist/liberals scent blood in the water and they are no longer going to vote her way like lemmings.
What I would like to see is our government working to help the citizens of this United States of America. I’m a registered nurse in Wichita KS. As nurses we are over worked and under paid. The nurse to patient ratio is terrible and I feel the regulations we have are getting out of control. If you on Capitol Hill want to investigate something. Investigate our healthcare system. You are already creating a dividend country. I love my country. My father was on the US Oklahoma when it was hit in Pearl harbor. I’m tired of the fighting. Do something worth while. Lori Williamson
I ALWAYS SAID THAT PELOSI IS NOT WELL. ANYBODY THAT HAS SOME KNOWLEDGE OF PARKINSON’S DICEASE KNOWS THAT. BUT THAT IS NOT THE REASON. THE REASON THAT SHE QUITS IS BECAUSE SHE KNOWS THAT THERE IS NO CASE. AND THE OTHERS, I DO NOT EVEN MENTION THEIR NAMES, BECAUSE THE NAMES ARE AS DISGUSTING AS THEM THEY ARE SO STUPID AND IGNORANT, THAT THINK ANYBODY IS GOING TO LISTEN TO THEIR RHETORIC. WE ARE SICK OF ALL OF THEM AND LET ME TELL YOU ALL ARE GOING TO BE “KING FOR A DAY” AFTER 2020 YOU SCUMBAGS ARE HISTORY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DO NOT WANT YOU, SO LONG, ZAYONARA, ENJOY IT FOR WHAT IT WILL LAST. SOB”S…..
Pelosi is not being truthful. Don’t believe her.
It will be difficult to impeach anyone from Guantanamo Bay which is where most Democrat socialist Communist Trators are heading very soon. After there false verification of Barack Hussein Obama Barry Sotoand all of his false information that they verified and put him in office for their deep State friends they’re all going to be hung at the end of a rope after their military tribunal for treason failure to support and defend the Constitution of the United States trying to disarm the American public by eliminating the second amendment which is the only one that protects us all and the other amendments in the Constitution by we the people were endowed to be obligated to protect. The only ones to soon be removed from any form of political service which is a joke comming from any Democrats and there own undoing.
