Pelosi Comes Out Against Impeaching Trump: ‘He’s Just Not Worth It’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. speaks at an Economic Club of Washington luncheon gathering in Washington Friday

Pelosi, on impeachment, says Trump ‘not worth it’

Although removal from office in the Senate is a long shot at the moment due to Trump's Republican support, many see Impeachment in the House as a constitutional necessity to rebuke a historically corrupt president.

"No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States", Pelosi told the Post, adding he was "ethically unfit, intellectually unfit, curiosity-wise unfit".

As for her comments on Trump's fitness to be president, Sanders said, "Most of America disagrees with her comments".

But in her latest comments to the Washington Post, she stated flat out that she is "not for" impeachment unless the evidence reaches a threshold of being both compelling and bipartisan.

In aninterview with the Washington Post published Monday, Pelosi said, "I'm not for impeachment". The longtime Democrat has managed to be very careful approaching the impeachment conversation in the past, usually either deflecting questions or saying she'll make her mind up when there is enough evidence to impeach Trump.

"This could be a tactical manoeuvre from Pelosi in order to actually secure the public release of the Muller report", he said.

Talk of impeachment proceedings against Trump intensified after Democrats won a majority in the House in the 2018 midterm elections.

Asked if she agreed with those who "feel the nation's institutions are in a perilous state", Pelosi said she didn't share that concern, but emphasized the importance of the coming presidential election. "There's no question that that was frightful for the country".

The comments come days after House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler announced a sweeping investigation, sending letters to 81 people and entities - including the White House, the Justice Department, senior campaign officials, Trump Organization officials and the President's sons - into possible corruption, obstruction of justice and abuses of power.

The NPR correspondent elaborated the political consequences Republicans faced after the House impeached President Bill Clinton in the 90s, which boosted his popularity in the final years of his presidency and warned that history can repeat itself with President Trump.

However, Pelosi also accused the president of "disregarding the Constitution of the United States [and] disregarding our commitments to the world in terms of our commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, to Paris climate, to our values".

'Is there a relationship?' she said, laughing when asked about it. "But in terms of where we are, as Thomas Paine said, the times have found us".

Two House Democrats, Reps.

Democrats made clear as they voted on a sweeping anti-hate resolution last week - a compromise meant to condemn the sentiment behind Omar's comments without directly rebuking her - that they wanted to put their divisions behind them and move forward with a unified focus on their policy agenda. Billionaire Tom Steyer has led the charge, spending tens of millions of dollars on television ads calling on Democrats to begin the process.

Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, one of the lawmakers leading those investigations, said he agrees with Pelosi and Congress needs "to do our homework".
