Houston Rep. Al Green will push another impeachment vote, despite Pelosi's resistance

Remarks House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said impeaching Donald Trump would divide the country ‘and he’s just not worth

Remarks House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said impeaching Donald Trump would divide the country ‘and he’s just not worth

About 48% of adults in the US said Trump should be impeached, while 40% opposed it, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll published March 8.

The answer could be significantly influenced by the clock.

Now that Pelosi is being widely quoted as coming out against the impeachment of Trump, Democrats are divided over her comments, meaning another such moment will be litigated in coming days.

Pelosi's approach could also provide cover to some of her members, including freshmen who were elected in November from "red-to-blue" districts where impeachment is politically fraught.

The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives could pass articles of impeachment and start the process tomorrow, but what next? They took an oath to defend the Constitution, and the Constitution is clear regarding what to do with a president who is alleged to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors. "While I don't exclude that possibility, I don't think we should put the country through impeachment without that amount evidence".

Tamping down impeachment talk also enables Pelosi to keep the spotlight on the Democratic agenda, she told lawmakers in a private meeting Monday night.

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told The Washington Post that impeaching the president is "just not worth it". One of the things that makes an ill-considered gambit to remove Trump "just not worth it", in Pelosi's words, is the opportunity cost.

"We're working very hard to deliver on those things, and I think the speaker wants to make sure we stay focused on that", he said.

"I think he probably ought to be impeached because of the budget document he sent up to the Hill yesterday, but that's another story", Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Ky., chairman of the House Budget Committee, said on CNN. Several congressional committees have launched their own investigations.

Any attempt to impeach Donald Trump is doomed without public support, says Adam Schiff. Impeachments can be a useful vehicle for forcing a debate on how we expect government officials to conduct themselves in office and for changing our constitutional norms and practices.

Norwegian Air said it would seek recompense for lost revenue and extra costs after grounding its 737 MAX aircraft. Teri Okita reports that its Boeing's second deadly accident in five months involving a 737 Max-8 jet.

By taking impeachment of Mr Trump off the table, Dr Smith believes we're seeing the beginnings of how Democrats plan to campaign in 2020. The state-by-state contests to decide the Republican and Democratic presidential nominees begin February 3, with the Iowa caucuses. As she says unless there is something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, they can't get two thirds of the Republican vote.

"We do not now have the evidence all sorted out", Nadler told ABC's This Week program on 3 March.

But Trump's lawyers and White House advisers would be well-advised not to take Pelosi's comment at face value. An impeachment can accomplish that result even if the impeached official in not removed.

Raskin added, "Timing is obviously going to be a subsidiary factor along with the character of the offenses that have been discovered".

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

Hollow attacks by some in our party failed to scar the political beast as she fought her way back into power and nearly immediately proved her worth (again) when she didn't blink an eye as Trump threw his childish tantrum of shutting down the government over his vanity wall.

On Tuesday, Sanders said that she was "glad [Pelosi] sees that the rest of us see, that there's no reason, no cause for impeachment".

While Pelosi said she wasn't in favour of impeaching Trump, she maintained that he wasn't fit for the presidency.

Even one of the strongest proponents of impeachment, freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI, said Tuesday that she is "absolutely not" disappointed in Pelosi.
