Pelosi opposes impeaching Trump as too divisive: 'He's just not worth it'

Republicans gave Pence, a former House member, a first floor bonus office in the U.S. Capitol shortly after President Trump was inaugurated in 2017. Under the Constitution, presidents are barred from seeking a third term. Tlaib and her fellow Muslim Democrat Ilhan Omar gained notoriety for endorsing the highly controversial anti-Israeli BDS movement, which is de facto outlawed in 26 USA states (with another 10 states considering their own anti-BDS legislation).

Numerous stories focused on insults the Speaker threw at President Trump during her interview with the Washington Post magazine.

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the nation's most powerful Democrat, said in remarks published Monday that she does not support impeaching President Donald Trump, arguing "he's just not worth it".

"And he's just not worth it".

"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. I think we ought to vote [our] convictions. Several congressional committees have launched their own investigations. Trump has called the investigation a "witch-hunt" and denied any collusion.

"So enacting impeachment in the House would be a purely symbolic gesture."
And he believes that his and others' efforts to highlight that has actually prevented Trump from committing more crimes.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI, who took office demanding her fellow Democrats "impeach the [expletive]", and who renewed her push as recently as Friday, dialed back after Mrs. Pelosi's comments, saying she's content with investigations for now. As history has shown us with Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, the Senate is needed for the conviction, and with the partisan breakdown as it stands now, Trump would join these other two presidents in avoiding the ultimate axe.

Tlaib announced last week that she plans to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump and she also seems unfazed by Pelosi's comments. "We do not now have the evidence all sorted out", Nadler told ABC's "This Week" programme on March 3. He added: "Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen".

So what do we, the real majority in this country, do to get rid of this monstrosity in the White House?

Some in the party would prefer a political battle against Trump at the ballot box, rather than an impeachment effort waged in Congress. "We can get the information we need". He has also been accused of wild abuses of power - most recently, in a New Yorker article that said he wanted the Justice Department to use anti-trust law to punish CNN for negative coverage.

Chabot offered some advice to his fellow Judiciary Committee members: "Move forward with great caution". "Is holding the President accountable 'worth it?' Is doing what's right 'worth it?' Or shall America just stop fighting for our principles and do what's politically convenient?" "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States", she said, before chiding herself for "coming across too negatively".

According to FiveThirtyEight, nearly 41 per cent of Americans approve of Mr Trump's work in the White House.
