"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", Pelosi said in a Washington Post interview published on Monday.
Numerous stories focused on insults the Speaker threw at President Trump during her interview with the Washington Post magazine. As she says unless there is something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, they can't get two thirds of the Republican vote. "Is holding the President accountable 'worth it?' Is doing what's right 'worth it?' Or shall America just stop fighting for our principles and do what's politically convenient?"
"I'm going to move forward, obviously", said Rep. Rashida Tlaib during a closed-door meeting with fellow Democrats Tuesday. Pelosi's allies believe her skepticism about impeachment protects her moderates in swing districts, gives her an exit strategy should Special Counsel Robert Mueller find no wrongdoing by the president, and could even strengthen her leverage if something serious arises and Pelosi reverses course to impeach him later.
"It makes sense. I think it's one of the few smart things Democrats have done this year", Republican strategist Brian Darling told The Epoch Times.
The California Democrat's comments came amid an aggressive push by House committees to investigate Mr Trump and his administration - and in the midst of Republican efforts to cast Democrats as obsessed with ousting the president.
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.

New app helps conservatives to find shops and eateries
But for 63red Safe to be a resource for conservatives during the election, it has to make it past the primary process. He said the goal isn't to find places that are conservative or pro-Trump, rather those that lack a "political bent".
House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings said impeachment "has to be a bipartisan effort, and right now it's not there". "And he's just not worth it".
Pelosi was noticeably warmer toward the younger generation of congresswomen during the interview, remembering the full name of the Green New Deal (which she'd previously dismissed as the "green dream, or whatever") and expressing "awe" at "the way they balance family and children and home".
"If it's going to be a political disaster for us, then we're not going to do it", she said.
"Impeachment would never be a political solution - ever", says Rep. James Langevin, a 10-term Democrat from Rhode Island.
