Nancy Pelosi takes Trump impeachment off the table: ‘He ‘isn’t worth it’

Green at any time can file articles of impeachment against Trump as a privileged resolution, which would trigger a two-day time clock in which the House has to consider the matter.

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. Under the Constitution, presidents are barred from seeking a third term.

"I'm glad that she sees what the rest of us see, that there is no reason, no cause for impeachment", she said during an interview with Fox News Tuesday.

But the divide on impeachment is emerging as one less about ideology and more about pragmatism, with the not-ready-to-impeach camp arguing that the action would not succeed and could make things worse for both the Democratic Party and the nation.

It's no secret that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team have been trying to tamp down enthusiasm in their Caucus for initiating impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Nancy Pelosi wants nothing more than for Donald Trump to be removed from office and have Democrats back in control to restore law, order and sanity to Washington, D.C., and the country, but there are many variables to weigh. "He's just not worth it" wasn't exactly her finest rhetorical hour. "If I had to guess now and give you a prognostication given the way the opinion makers and opinion shakers have handled this, my guess is they've done a pretty good job among the members and you probably won't get 66", the Texas Democrat said.

Bossie has a wealth of experience in the bruising arenas of congressional investigations. "He's obstructed justice at the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

The Clinton impeachment process ran five months from the release of the independent counsel report that prompted the House to act until his Senate acquittal.

Mueller is also looking into whether Trump has attempted to obstruct the investigation. The president was discussing immigration at the time he called certain countries s-hole countries and I might add these are countries where people of color were. Democrats say they're conducting the rigorous oversight of the administration that Republicans refused to do the first two years of Trump's presidency. "If this is not a case for impeaching and removing a unsafe president, then what has our government become?"

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said a unilateral pursuit of impeachment by Democrats would be an "exercise doomed for failure".

"We do not now have the evidence all sorted out", Nadler told ABC's This Week program on 3 March. By declaring Trump essentially unimpeachable, the House speaker gives future presidents the impunity to act as these choose, virtually without outcome. Neither was removed. In the aftermath of the U.S. Civil War, Johnson was impeached in 1868 after firing his secretary of war, only to be acquitted by the Senate. Heading into the midterm elections, she discouraged candidates from talking up impeachment, preferring to stick to the kitchen table issues that she believes most resonate with voters.

Chabot offered some advice to his fellow Judiciary Committee members: "Move forward with great caution".

Is holding the President accountable "worth it?"

Green said "not at all", but Cavuto asked if he's concerned that having "looser standards" for impeachment could be used against a future Democratic president.
