President Trump’s status for his impeachment has changed again as Pelosi switches sides.
Recently in an interview, Pelosi stated impeaching President Trump is “just not worth it” and will “divide the country.”
“I’m not for impeachment,” Pelosi stated. “This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: 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.”
Pelosi later added: “I don’t think he’s fit to be president of the United States.”
Pelosi’s recent comments clash with the far-left of the Democrats — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — who have all called for his impeachment.
One of the leftist comments that Pelosi’s statement goes against is, “we’re gonna go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherf****r” by Tlaib.
In any case, impeachment will be very difficult and met with strong opposition as President Trumps approval rating hovers around 50%.
Trump also has a great amount of support from the Republican Party, The Hill reported: “More GOP voters associate with President Trump than they do with the Republican Party itself, underscoring the degree to which Trump has taken over the GOP brand, according to a new poll.”
Another deciding factor for impeachment will include the Russia investigation, Reuters reported: “The big question is whether Mueller will present evidence of criminal conduct by the president himself. Such findings could prompt the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to begin the impeachment process laid out in the Constitution for removing a president from office for ‘treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.'”
Mueller’s investigation has resulted in charges being brought against multiple people, none of the charges are for things related to actions taken by the Trump campaign.
Recently, ABC News’ Terry Moran stated that if Mueller’s report shows no collusion that there will be a reckoning.
“The most central and most serious question in this investigation, the reason Robert Mueller started it is, did the current president of the United States assist the Kremlin in an attack on our democracy?” Moran said. “And if Mueller, after two years, comes back and says, ‘I don’t have the evidence to support that charge,’ that’s a reckoning. That’s a reckoning for progressives and Democrats who hoped that Mueller would essentially erase the 2016 election. It’s a reckoning for the media. It’s a reckoning around the country if, in fact, after all this time there was no collusion.”
