Nancy Pelosi says Donald Trump ‘just not worth’ the hassle of impeachment

President Trump's campaign on Tuesday called on his Democratic challengers for 2020 to say whether they support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's stance against impeachment. "It's important that there is a transparent process".

Green cited bigotry and a slew of offensive comments and controversial policy choices Trump has made over his first two years in office as his primary reason to impeach the president.

Speaking to Fox News, Ms Sanders said she was "glad Ms Pelosi sees what the rest of us see, that there's no reason, no cause for impeachment". And he's just not worth it, ' she concluded. "And that's up to us to make the contrast to show that this president - while he be appealing to you on your insecurity and therefore your xenophobia, whether it's globalization or immigrants - is fighting clean air for your children to breathe, clean water for them to drink, food safety, every good thing that we should be doing that people can't do for themselves".

Green does not have a timetable for when the next impeachment vote would take place. Pelosi returns to her chair holding the plaque on her palm and reads a quote from Lincoln etched on the reverse side: "Public sentiment is everything". As long as Republicans assert that they disagree the president should be impeached, the argument is, de facto, over, based on Pelosi's reasoning.

Steyer released a statement later Monday condemning Pelosi's comments in the Post interview, though he only focused on one part of her quote. "Impeachment is a divisive issue in our country". White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said "I agree" in response to Pelosi's words.

She never said that she was slamming the door shut on the option of impeachment, but in her experience, and her often astute wiseness, she believes there is a better path to victory-and I trust her. "You know, it's not about him", she said, before pivoting to the centrist version of her party's platform points: "lower health-care costs, bigger paychecks, cleaner government".

We've seen the result when the House pursued impeachment despite the lack of consensus across the aisle for that action.

Rather than ignore the obvious - which is Democrats have backed off impeachment because they have come to realize evidence does not support it - Fandos and others sought to keep hope alive. I mean, they deserve it, but it probably won't happen through impeachment.

Rep. Al Green, the Texas Democrat who introduced impeachment articles previous year, said he will try to force a vote.

Several panels in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, including one headed by House judiciary chairman Jerrold Nadler, have just opened investigations into nearly every aspect of Mr Trump's life.

While a motion to table, if that's how Democratic leaders decide to proceed, is not a direct vote on impeachment, political strategists will treat it as such and craft ads surrounding how vulnerable members votes.

Sanders argued Tuesday that Americans are not interested in seeing Trump be impeached.

"There's only a handful of Republicans that would do anything that is questionable of Trump even if he did the gun to the head of somebody on Fifth Avenue that he's talked about", Cohen told reporters Monday night.

With the 2020 presidential and congressional election campaigns already gearing up, the political calendar could dictate whether initiating the time-consuming impeachment process is even plausible, Democratic and Republican lawmakers said.
