    Nancy Pelosi says impeachment of Trump 'just not worth it'

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she doesn’t support impeaching President Trump, dealing a major setback to the anti-Trump resistance that has clamored for House Democrats to take the politically charged step.

    Mrs. Pelosi, in an interview with The Washington Post Magazine released Monday, said that while she doubts Mr. Trump’s fitness for office, impeaching him would be too divisive.

    “I’m not for impeachment,” she told the magazine, adding she was aware she was breaking news with the announcement. “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that 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. And he’s just not worth it.”

    Mrs. Pelosi had been trying to tamp down impeachment talk within her ranks for months, but she has had only moderate success.

    Poster note: Is Madame Speaker basically saying Trump is not worth the effort?

    He only has like a year left of his term so I'm not even sure what impeaching him at this point would accomplish anyway.

    Arguably, impeaching Bill Clinton got him re-elected.

    That and there needs to actually be something to draft articles of impeachment.

    It happened after his reelection. The trial started in early 1999.

    I'm ready to see the far left crucify Pelosi.

    There is no point to starting impeachment proceedings now - Mueller and Congressional investigations are still ongoing. By the time they wrap up, it will be too close to the election to bother.

    I imagine there will be a bigger push for impeachment if he gets re-elected.

    The Senate is never going to remove him, so why waste the time on impeachment proceedings.

    You are correct, my mistake.

    Something the Republicans learned in 1999. You better have some evidence to remove a President.

    I agree with her. Trying to impeach Clinton was divisive. At this point, selling impeachment to the American public is bound to be seen as partisanship.

    Of course, most people just thought it was a witch hunt. They might have thought less of Clinton, but they thought even less of Ken Starr.

    Nancy Pelosi says impeachment of Trump 'just not worth it'

    Without 60 votes in the Senate, there would be no point in impeaching this President unless there is bipartisan support - if the 2018 Interims were any indicator, mercifully this will be a one term presidency!

    Once this President is out of office, "The Donald," his family and Trump Enterprises will be facing one criminal case after another for the next decade - I seriously doubt Melania will be there on "visiting days" when he's in prison!

    Most of the rational posted here for dropping the impeachment efforts, e.g. there’s not enough time left, are better reasons than Mrs. Pelosi gave. “He’s not worth it.” ... Really? If President Trump is such a detriment to the nation, it would be worth the effort right to the end. The nation is worth it, right?
    Am I reading her motive wrong here?
    So she’s saying that he’s not worth the effort to do harm to, continue to thwart, etc? Very interesting way for her to phrase it.

    Speaker Pelosi appears to be more than a match for her "narcissistic" opponent in the White House - there is nothing that would infuriate "The Donald's" insatiable ego more than her public statement that "he's not worth it!"

    While the average President would be relieved that the Speaker was not intent on his "impeachment," Donald J. would deeply resent being deprived of his opportunity to be placed on this pedestal, making him the centre of national and world attention!
