Strategists Agree Pelosi’s Impeachment Comment Doesn’t End Anti-Trump Effort

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, last week launched what many analysts called the pathway to impeachment, issuing document requests to some 81 persons or entities that came within the Trump orbit during his time as a businessman, a candidate or as president. Democrats say they're conducting the rigorous oversight of the administration that Republicans refused to do the first two years of Trump's presidency. The country is better than it has been in decades and we are actually making progress on a number of fronts.

"And he's just not worth it", Pelosi told The Post.

Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the US House of Representatives and the top Democrat, has sad she does not favour impeaching President Donald Trump, as has been threatened by many of her colleagues, because it would be "divisive" for the country and, most notably, "he's just not worth it". By saying impeachment needs to be "bipartisan", she hinders any Democratic arguments that a particular act or crime, past or future, warrants impeachment.

A third argument is a continuation of the one Trump made in the run-up to the midterm elections: Democrats have been intent from the get-go on impeaching him - and that doing so is a partisan plot to overturn the results of Election Day 2016.

'I think we can certainly say from the indictment in the Southern District of NY that identifies Individual 1 as having directed and coordinated a campaign fraud scheme in which the department urged that Michael Cohen be sent to jail, ' Schiff told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast Tuesday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's not in favor of impeaching President Trump, dealing a major setback to the anti-Trump resistance which has clamored for House Democrats to take the politically charged step.

He went on to add that despite Pelosi's objections to impeachment, he did see offenses committed by Trump that rose to the level of impeachment.

"At least two wild cards remain: federal prosecutors in NY who are scrutinizing Mr. Trump's business and inaugural committee, and Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel who is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation and whether the president obstructed justice".

"If we had gone down that path, I doubt we would have won the White House", she said at the time. "Unless there's some conclusive evidence that takes us to that place". The Congressional Black Caucus - of which Green is a member - helped drive the Democrats to political expediency on the issue of bigotry in order to protect Omar from the consequences of her repeated transgressions.

"Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen", Nadler added. Green moved in December 2017 to force the House to consider impeachment articles; the effort was killed on a 364-58 vote.

While a motion to table, if that's how Democratic leaders decide to proceed, is not a direct vote on impeachment, political strategists will treat it as such and craft ads surrounding how vulnerable members votes. Absent "extraordinarily clear and compelling" evidence, Schiff said at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast Tuesday, "impeachment becomes a partisan exercise doomed for failure". Cruz, who is the chair of the Subcommittee on Aviation and Space, said he'll hold hearings on these crashes. (I know, it's hard to remember after Republicans did nothing.) We insist government be transparent and we hold those responsible to account for their conduct.

Interestingly, though Pelosi dismisses impeachment, she has no problem pronouncing Trump "unfit".
