‘I won’t impeach Trump’ says Nancy Pelosi [video]

Nancy Pelosi just signaled Democrats won’t move to impeach Trump if they retake the House.

Excerpt Business Insider.

  • House minority leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she would not support moving to impeach President Donald Trump if Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives following the midterm elections.
  • “I get criticized in my own party for not being in support of it,” Pelosi said. “But I’m not. If that happens, it would have to be bipartisan, and the evidence would have to be so conclusive.”
  • For many Democrats, whether in the Capitol or on the campaign trail, the issue of impeachment is seen as a nuisance and a distraction from more serious issues.

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi said she would not support moving to impeach President Donald Trump.

“Some Democrats are saying this, they want to conduct investigations of the president, they even want to impeach the president,” PBS’s Judy Woodruff said to Pelosi during an interview on Tuesday night.

“That serves their purpose, to say that,” Pelosi replied. “We certainly will honor our responsibility as oversight of the executive branch.”

Asked whether Democrats would try to impeach Trump, Pelosi said: “It depends on what happens in the [special counsel Robert] Mueller investigation, but that is not unifying and I get criticized in my own party for not being in support of it. But I’m not. If that happens, it would have to be bipartisan, and the evidence would have to be so conclusive.”
