Trump, Pelosi agree on one thing: No impeachment, but for different reasons

Trump, Pelosi agree on one thing: No impeachment, but for different reasons

The question of whether to impeach or not impeach caught fire this week after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to put the brakes on impeachment proceedings in the immediate future.

The Democrats want Donald Trump to be impeached as soon as possible.

However, Pelosi went on to add that Trump is unfit to be president.

I'm not for impeachment.

For two full years, Democrats pinned their hopes on the report of the special counsel finding evidence of collusion with Russian Federation to initiate action against Mr. Trump.

But she had been cautious in the past about impeaching him. She said that the president is "just not worth it".

"After Pelosi's comments, Republicans countered, asking why Democrats would have issued 81 document requests to people associated with President Trump if they're not already planning on impeachment".

Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries of NY made this point bluntly: "We did not run on impeachment".

"No. No. I don't think he is", she said.

"I think the more candidates the better", he said.

Passing over Trump's attacks on democratic rights, such as the Muslim travel ban, the forced separation of immigrant parents and children, the encouragement of fascists and neo-Nazis, congressional Democrats have focused instead on the likely political impact of the passage of an impeachment resolution by the Democratic-controlled House, to be followed by acquittal of Trump in a trial before the Republican-controlled Senate. Kayleigh McEnany, national press secretary for the Trump campaign, said in a statement. "We are not governing with a focus on impeachment". Asked if she thought he was fit to be president Pelosi answered.

Despite the scathing remarks, Donald Trump thanked Nancy Pelosi for not wanting the impeachment.

Trump's former personal attorney and "fixer" Michael Cohen recently discussed the payments in his testimony before Congress.

But the speaker and other Democratic leaders in the House have said the decision would be based on such evidence - not about domestic factors like the economy.

"In its absence, an impeachment becomes a partisan exercise doomed for failure", he said.

Trump was referring to an interview published Monday in the Washington Post Magazine in which Pelosi, who returned to power after Democrats won decisively in last year's midterms, said, "I'm not for impeachment".
