    Pelosi: ‘Not worth it’ to impeach Trump
    The only error in Pelosi's thinking is that "something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan" exists that could convince Senate Republicans to agree to remove Trump from office.

    Pelosi's thinking seems clear: an impeachment process is an enormous drain on other resources and efforts, and would fail in the Senate anyway resulting in a feeling of defeat for the Left. So, per her thinking, what's the point?

    Your thread title is just plain fraudulent as that is NOT what she said.
    Pelosi looked at the facts and realized there are no high crimes and misdemeanors. Impeaching a president for purely partisan reasons is not what the US is about. Why can't you just admit that there are no high crimes and misdemeanors?

    She did not say that.

    That's not what Pelosi said. Your thread title is wayyyy deceiving.

    Exactly. Senate Republicans have long stepped down from their constitutional tasks and are a bunch of cowardly enablers.

    If the Dems had control of two thirds of the Senate, I'd say, yeah, impeach and convict the bastard. But they don't, so, it's a pipe dream, and might result in losing the only way to remove Trump from office, that is, beating him in 2020.

    Nary a peep from the lefties that were pushing the russia collusion lie. Does any leftist here still admit to believing that? Or have you realized how dumb that was? Even the leftstream media has dropped it like a bag of wet dirt.

    It means a couple things. It means Pelosi just shot down all the loons who are looking to impeach Trump today. And it means Pelosi has seen nothing that merits impeachment in her mind. The truth here Mr. Haymarket is that it is YOUR wet dream that is collapsing around you. Hes not going anywhere.

    She said impeachment can go forward if it's based on (A) compelling evidence, (B) overwhelming evidence, and (C) bipartisan support.

    Nice fail you've got there.
    She said there is no compelling evidence and she knows what's going on with Mueller and she knows what is going on with House investigations. You guys just can't accept the truth.
