Trump 'greatly appreciates' Pelosi's comment opposing impeachment

Steyer has been advocating, and building a case for, Trump's impeachment and removal from office for some time. "I mean, ethically unfit".

But their shared view that the House should not start impeachment proceedings against him are based on starkly different reasons.

The Estonian president also thanked Ms Pelosi and the members of the US Congress for their supportive attitude toward Estonia and Europe alike, but also sanctions placed on Russian Federation in connection with the war in Ukraine. I don't think he is. Intellectually unfit. Curiosity-wise unfit.

"I'm not for impeachment", she said.

"And Nancy said we're not looking to impeach you". "I didn't believe in it then; I don't believe in it now", Pelosi said. If Congress opts against impeachment regardless of what the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, reports, would that set the bar so high that impeachment will no longer be a viable option? "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States", she stated. That's good. But you know what?

But some members of the liberal wing of the House Democratic caucus who once lobbied for impeachment proceedings since have fallen in line behind Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, who echoed the speaker on Tuesday.

Last month, after Trump declared a national emergency and ordered the Pentagon to shift funds appropriated by Congress for military construction to build his border, Pelosi said, quite correctly, that in seeking to bypass the congressional "power of the purse", Trump was "shredding the Constitution". "While we have impeachment authority, we need to be very cognizant of what the American people believe, and I agree with the speaker, that the probability of success is low, and the distraction would be major".

The Trump campaign quickly spoke out on Pelosi's comments and argued that Democrats running for office should be asked if they think the president should be impeached.

Former senior congressional aides and analysts have told Roll Call since Democrats took control of the House that Pelosi is unlikely to move ahead with an impeachment process because Democrats lack the 67 votes in the Senate needed to convict and remove Trump.
