NY Times Skewers Pelosi for Backing Down on Impeachment

House Nancy Pelosi is joined by fellow Democrats to introduce an immigration reform bill at the Capitol in Washington

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said, "I don't know".

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 didn't believe in it then; I don't believe in it now", Pelosi said.

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

"For now, Democrats are taking a wait-and-see approach to ousting President Trump since they're expecting the report on the Russian Federation investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller soon".

I'm not for impeachment. But she made clear how poorly she thought of him. If that were true, then the Democratic Party, as a representative of American imperialist interests, would have no choice but to wage all-out war against the president.

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.

"In fact, when people say there is one way to get rid of him or another, actually you are making a decision", Steyer added.

"Nancy Pelosi is smart to say there shouldn't be an impeachment, because there's no grounds to do it", McCarthy said. The feisty politician simply said, "I'm not for impeachment", when asked about her stance regarding the issue.

Trump's defenders on Capitol Hill, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-California, continue predicting that not only will the president avoid impeachment, he will win a second term. "We need to concentrate on what we're fighting for".

There are several freshman lawmakers who want to push for impeachment, despite Pelosi's statements, and Khanna said he considers Congress to be like being on a jury.

"To show you just how out of sorts they've gotten, the AFL-CIO published a letter saying "we will not tolerate the Green [New] Deal" because it's going to impact millions of their hard-working, blue-collar Americans and their families", he said.

On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez said: "Legally I don't think it's something that can ever be 100 percent off the table, but if that's how she feels right now I respect that".
