Is Speaker Pelosi jumping on the Trump Train? No, but she’s making it clear that the House will not be voting to impeach President Trump.
In an interview released Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the Washington Post that impeaching President Trump is “just not worth it.”
“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”
Why it matters: Pelosi’s comments — which mark the first public stance she’s taken firmly against impeachment — will certainly rattle rank and file Democrats, especially progressives and party activists who have been calling for impeachment since the day they took back the House inAXIOS
The Establishment Democrats know what will happen if they try to impeach the President. They will lost the House, never gain the senate and will guarantee a loss in 2020, and 2024.
