Pelosi Takes Back House Office Space From Pence

"In throwing cold water on the idea of impeachment, Speaker Nancy Pelosi in some ways was simply offering a clear-eyed assessment of the state of politics today in the nation's hyperpolarized capital: There are not enough votes to convict and remove President Trump from office", Baker and Cochrane write.

However, Pelosi went on to add that Trump is unfit to be president.

But there is no suggestion, in any of the ongoing discussions by Democrats, for and against impeachment, of citing Trump's defiance of the congressional power to appropriate funds, laid down in Article I of the Constitution, as one of the possible articles of impeachment. If Congress opts against impeachment regardless of what the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, reports, would that set the bar so high that impeachment will no longer be a viable option?

Pelosi has not spoken on the matter, but the aide said that she will be offering additional space to the White House legislative affairs team.

"And he's just not worth it".

"After Pelosi's comments, Republicans countered, asking why Democrats would have issued 81 document requests to people associated with President Trump if they're not already planning on impeachment".

"And Nancy said we're not looking to impeach you".

Schakowsky said, "We need to get rid of Donald Trump and I don't think impeaching in the House is going to do it and so we need to do it by the 2020 election". I said that's good, Nancy. Also worth noting that twice Trump asserts that he "never did anything wrong", though in both first-person and third-person points of view, perhaps to cover all bases.

While several senior Democrats agree with Pelosi, those on the far-left including freshmen like Representatives Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., are pushing against the speaker.

"The now-public approach could help insulate Democrats from future criticism if the party does move forward with impeachment". "Nancy says in her statement in The Washington Post, we know he's unfit for office".

Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, who conducted an all-day televised hearing for Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer and "fixer", chimed in with his support.

In an interview with the Washington Post on Monday, Pelosi said she does not believe that impeachment is the right course of action to deal with Trump.

"We don't have the facts yet, but we're going to initiate proper investigations", he said.
