Strategists Agree Pelosi’s Impeachment Comment Doesn’t End Anti-Trump Effort

Green's comments to C-SPAN about forcing another vote on impeaching Trump - the first with Democrats in the majority - comes after Pelosi told the Washington Post in an interview published Monday that she is "not for impeachment".

"Unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country".

ASSOCIATED PRESS "I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States", House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said of Donald Trump. Two-thirds of Democratic voters say Congress should get the ball rolling on impeachment, according to a recent Quinnipiac University poll. Is holding the President accountable for his crimes and coverups "worth it?"

During a segment on Your World WIth Neil Cavuto, the host asked Green to explain why he's still pushing for impeachment when Pelosi has said it would be "a waste of time".

"At least two wild cards remain: federal prosecutors in NY who are scrutinizing Mr. Trump's business and inaugural committee, and Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel who is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation and whether the president obstructed justice. I thought it was absolutely brilliant", Cummings said.

Twenty-one years later, the Clintons amassed a nine-figure fortune by trading off their names, and Hillary Clinton only missed out on a Clinton Restoration to the White House out of her own sheer incompetence. No one seems to know when it will end, or what form a final "report" will take, but the conclusion of the probe may lay out a very compelling case for impeachment.

The chairmen of several powerful investigative committees backed Ms Pelosi, but a crop of members on the left disagreed with her insistence that Republican support was a key ingredient for impeachment.

Some in the party would prefer a political battle against Trump at the ballot box, rather than an impeachment effort waged in Congress. Timing, Raskin said, "becomes more of a factor" in impeachment as elections near.

A Republican-led House voted to impeach Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1998, midway through his second term in office, and the Senate voted not to remove him in 1999.

Tamping down impeachment talk also enables Pelosi to keep the spotlight on the Democratic agenda, she told lawmakers in a private meeting Monday night. "And he's just not worth it", Pelosi told the Post.

And although Ms Pelosi said she believed it would be too divisive to try to impeach Mr Trump, she did characterise the President as unfit to hold office.

Regardless of whether impeachment is pursued, Democrats and even some fellow Republicans noted the importance of congressional oversight of Trump. We must take into account the political climate, optics and ultimately the votes needed to make it happen.

Green said he is not concerned with Speaker Pelosi's contention that impeachment is "not worth it". It's divisive as Pelosi acknowledged.

Despite a growing chorus of senior Democrats faulting the president for tearing down US institutions and even going against the rule of law with his attacks on investigators, Pelosi portrayed USA institutions as intact.

Cavuto then argued that if Green wanted to impeach Trump for allegedly being "a racist" then he's "redefining what is an impeachable offense". And I always say you're not going to hear me saying anything publicly that I'm not saying here in the office.
