'Trump's just not worth it' - Pelosi against 'divisive impeachment'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. speaks at an Economic Club of Washington luncheon gathering in Washington Friday Pelosi, on impeachment, says Trump ‘not worth it’

"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.

Still, her comments will nearly certainly infuriate the far-left wing of the party, which has been clamouring to begin impeachment proceedings over controversies ensnaring the Trump administration.

Republicans are not prepared to deal with a number of Trump-related investigations, one former campaign adviser to the current president is saying.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said "I agree" in response to Pelosi's words.

All 157 people on board crashed Ethiopian plane confirmed dead
Ethiopian Airlines is one of the continent's biggest carriers with ambitions to becoming the gateway to Africa. Eight Chinese passengers were on board, said Li Liang, spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy to Ethiopia .

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.

In speaking to The Washington Post, Pelosi said that Trump was "just not worth it" in regards to Congress removing him from office.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi's opposition to impeaching President Donald Trump won't stop a House vote on the issue, as Texas Democratic Rep. Al Green intends to force one again like he twice did when Republicans held the majority.

The New York Post editorial board writes 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 some new 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.

"I would like to see this president and the style of politics that he represents sent off through the electoral process, decisively defeated at the ballot box", South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg said Sunday night at a CNN presidential town hall.
