Schiff: Pelosi is 'absolutely right' on impeachment

"And he's just not worth it", she said. "But if it's going to be a political disaster for us, then we're not going to do it".

"This is not about the speaker, it wasn't about the speaker before she became speaker and it's not about the speaker now", Green said at a press conference in his office, Politico reported.

"All of the above. No. No".

"We're working very hard to deliver on those things, and I think the speaker wants to make sure we stay focused on that", he said.

"Intellectually unfit. Curiosity-wise unfit". "I think every single colleague of mine agrees there's impeachable offenses". Ocasio-Cortez admitted Tuesday she disagrees with Pelosi on the impeachment issue, according to Fox.

California Democrat Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee was among Pelosi's defenders.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Pelosi said that Trump isn't worth the division and instability that would be caused by impeachment.

The committee said its investigation would look into possible obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power.

In the same interview, she complimented Trump with a laugh, calling him "a great organizer for Democrats, a great fundraiser for Democrats and a great mobilizer at the grass-roots level for Democrats".

"If the evidence isn't sufficient to win bipartisan support for this, putting the country through a failed impeachment isn't a good idea", he told CNN.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, who testified before the House Judiciary Committee during Clinton's impeachment process, said of the current Congress: "They've basically got a sweet spot of a year" to impeach and hold a Senate trial, if lawmakers deem those actions necessary.

While Pelosi's comments may help Democrats in competitive districts distance themselves from a divisive topic, they could frustrate some of those now in the middle of congressional investigations.

Green added: "The question we really have to ask ourselves is whether the country is worth it, whether what we stand for is worth it, whether our values are worth it".

"There's only a handful of Republicans that would do anything that is questionable of Trump even if he did the gun to the head of somebody on Fifth Avenue that he's talked about", Cohen told reporters Monday night. "But in terms of where we are, as Thomas Paine said, the times have found us". Our founders gave us the strongest foundation.

But McGovern - who has been on the Hill since he began as a House staffer in 1981 - says Pelosi is doing the right thing by not moving to impeach. Notably, freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., vowed in January that she would work to "impeach the motherf--er".

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, a New York Democrat and a member of House leadership, said that pro-impeachment House Democrats "attract extraordinary amount of attention" even though there are only a "handful" of them.

The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives could pass articles of impeachment and start the process tomorrow, but what next?

And outside the Capitol, liberal billionaire Tom Steyer has pledged to spend tens of millions of dollars on an effort to impeach Trump, forming a group called Need to Impeach that has taken out television ads and constructed a grass-roots network to push the issue.

So what do we, the real majority in this country, do to get rid of this monstrosity in the White House?

"The Constitution calls for impeachment in cases of bribery, treason and other high crimes and misdemeanors", he said. "He's obstructed justice at the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
