Trump 'greatly appreciates' Pelosi's comment opposing impeachment

House Nancy Pelosi is joined by fellow Democrats to introduce an immigration reform bill at the Capitol in Washington

The recent statement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she does not support impeaching Mr. Trump because it is too divisive, and he is just not worth it has upset many in her party.

"In throwing cold water on the idea of impeachment, Speaker Nancy Pelosi in some ways was simply offering a clear-eyed assessment of the state of politics today in the nation's hyperpolarized capital: There are not enough votes to convict and remove President Trump from office", Baker and Cochrane write.

In New York, federal prosecutors are examining the president's role in hush-money payments shortly before the election to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal to keep them quiet about affairs they said they had with Trump.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump tried to obstruct the probe. One of her first orders of business has been to strip Vice President Mike Pence of a mostly ceremonial office gifted to him by former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-MN). "And he's just not worth it", she told the Post.

"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".

What we are witnessing here is the early stages of a public relations battle to convince a solid majority of Americans that Trump ought to be impeached, assuming the investigations yield real evidence in support of impeachment.


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

"The now-public approach could help insulate Democrats from future criticism if the party does move forward with impeachment".

"But not all Democrats are gelling with Pelosi's message". Is this good news for President Trump? "We are not governing with a focus on impeachment".

Some House Democrats voiced their opposition to Pelosi's dismissal of impeachment, including Rashida Tlaib of MI, who said she plans to file an impeachment resolution, and Al Green of Texas, who introduced an impeachment resolution previous year that was shelved by the Republican majority, and attracted barely 60 votes from Democrats. Asked if she thought he was fit to be president Pelosi answered.

Other top House Democrats backed Pelosi, including those conducting major investigations into actions by Trump that have been cited as potentially impeachable offenses.

On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez said: "Legally I don't think it's something that can ever be 100 percent off the table, but if that's how she feels right now I respect that".
