    "I am not for impeachment," Pelosi says, potentially roiling fellow Democrats

    ‘I’m not for impeachment,’ Pelosi says, potentially roiling fellow Democrats

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview that she opposes moving to impeach President Trump even though she believes he is unfit for office her first definitive statement on the subject and one that stands to alienate members of her own Democratic Party who are intent on ousting the president.Im not for impeachment, she said in a March 6 interview conducted for a future issue of The Washington Post Magazine.
    This is news, she added. I havent said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and Ive been thinking about this, impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless theres something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I dont think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And hes just not worth it.
    No collusion. No impeachment. No nothing.

    Just not going your way, eh libs?

    This is actually smart. Democrats are circling the drain right because of Ocasio-Cortez, Kamala, Oman, Booker, Bernie, etc, and this would only put 10 more nails in the coffin.

    She said unless there is something really convincing and bipartisan. She is wise

    Do you think so?

    I think Americans are smart enough to know that having a blatantly racist POTUS like Trump is bad for the country. So no matter what his supporters threaten to do, I expect the rest of the country will happily rid itself of this flimflam artist.
    Jeez, did you do really do something that stupid? You were as Dumb As Donald!

    So what changed between yesterday and today? Republicans in the Senate aren't going to agree to impeachment no matter what is found, so what did Pelosi's comment really change?

    Sadly (for Trump supporters), the congressional investigations will not end anytime soon. Sure to last at least up until he is voted out of office.

    Nancy Pelosi is very pragmatic and she knows that waiting for the Mueller Investigation to wrap up before bringing an impeachment to vote is the most rational thing to do. We do not need impeachment at this moment, but that's not ruling out impeachment in the future.

    So she is smart but AOC, Talib, Omar are dumb? I know, they are new. Let them get through orientation first.

    Pelosi is at least being an adult and recognizes that impeachment would be very divisive and bad for the country. The rest of your filthy party don't care about their country.

    The Mueller investigation is actually last on my list of things to rely on. Unlike an impeachment hearing, investigations by the House Committees and the SDNY actually have a chance of going somewhere.

    Pelosi grasps something a lot of people don't: even if we know there is nothing that could convince Senate Republicans to agree to remove Trump gtom oggivr, the mere existence of an impeachment hearing creates an unrealistic sense of hope that can only result in demoralizing defeat. What's the point of that? Symbolism? Well, defeat is symbolic, too, and I'd say that can be a lot worse.

    I can't be the only one wondering what the hell happened to the thread title

    You don't know that.
    What if Mueller's report shows treason which exceeds the threshold of high crimes & misdemeanors"? Do you really think that lowly of the Republicans?
