Nancy Pelosi takes Trump impeachment off the table: ‘He ‘isn’t worth it’

Our Verdict: Steyer won't let politics stand in the way of impeachment.

Last month, after Trump declared a national emergency and ordered the Pentagon to shift funds appropriated by Congress for military construction to build his border, Pelosi said, quite correctly, that in seeking to bypass the congressional "power of the purse", Trump was "shredding the Constitution".

I'm not for impeachment. "I didn't believe in it then; I don't believe in it now", Pelosi said.

The speaker had previously taken a cautious tone when discussing possibly impeaching the president - a path widely viewed as politically fraught, though its supporters say with so few examples in American history it remains to be seen how a new trial would play out in the public.

Yet, in a second post on his favorite social media site, the president signaled he has a clear understanding of the impeachment process, asking how the House could impeach him since he "has done nothing wrong and impeachment is for "high crimes and misdemeanors"?"

Pelosi, 78, touched on that in her Post interview. He backs up the hate that Trump supports, according to the Times.

That's because, despite Pelosi's opposition, Texas Democratic Rep.

Special counsel Robert Mueller (MUHL'-ur) is examining whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether Trump tried to obstruct the investigation.

Steyer, who has pursued Trump's impeachment with commercials, town hall meetings across the country, as well as TV appearances, wants Pelosi to pursue impeachment even if it's politically hard. If that were true, then the Democratic Party, as a representative of American imperialist interests, would have no choice but to wage all-out war against the president.

Pelosi added of Trump, "And he's just not worth it".

In the meantime, House Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings of Maryland is locking horns with an increasingly recalcitrant White House over issues related to Trump's hush money payment to Stormy Daniels and the top-secret security clearances granted to Trump family members and White House advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. Or does the change of heart come from a recognition that without control of the Senate, impeachment proceedings would go nowhere?
