'Trump's just not worth it' - Pelosi against 'divisive impeachment'
Pelosi, on impeachment, says Trump ‘not worth it’
13 March, 2019, 02:26
"If there's to be grounds for impeachment of President Trump ― and I'm not seeking those grounds ― that would have to be so clearly bipartisan in terms of acceptance of it before I think we should go down any impeachment path", Pelosi told USA Today at the time. "He's just not worth it" wasn't exactly her finest rhetorical hour.
The most powerful Democrat in the country merely suggested that she doesn't think impeachment is the right course of action for the Democrats to take before the 2020 election, and with that the blue wolves turned on her and started sniping at her spiked heels.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., the chairman of the committee, called the requests the first step in a larger probe into obstruction of justice and abuses of power by the president.
Her announcement followed news from House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler that an investigation had been opened into Trump's campaign, businesses and administration. Mr Trump called the resolution "disgraceful".
"She has now dismissed both the left's obsession with a unsafe and likely doomed effort to impeach Trump, and Trump himself, driving him insane", Brzezinski said.

Parents spent anywhere from $200,000 to $6.5 million to guarantee their children's admission to elite schools, authorities said. Parents would pay Singer to have someone take an SAT or ACT exam for their child or correct the test afterward, Lelling said.
Pelosi insisted later in the interview that it is her view Trump is "ethically" and "intellectually" unfit to be president, but she doesn't believe that ought to be her focus. "They decided this. We didn't elect a majority of Democrats to the House to allow Republicans to determine the fate of the country".
Second, Pelosi may have deduced something about or even been privy to Robert Mueller's forthcoming report.
Pelosi has, at times, referenced the failed 1998 impeachment of President Bill Clinton by congressional Republicans as a formative experience in her thinking - an argument she renewed in the interview.
The New York Posteditorial boardwrites that Pelosi's admission stating she would need "something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan", is proof that "there isn't" anything. For impeachment to actually remove the President, that requires a two thirds vote in the Senate. Most important is that, by taking impeachment off the table now, barring somenew big revelations that spark bipartisan outrage, you give tacit assent to Trump's worst behavior.
"They're [Democrats] aware that it's a deeply divided country at the moment", Dr Smith said.
