Speaker Pelosi Revokes Vice President Pence's House Office Space

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Washington in January

On Monday afternoon, The Washington Post magazine published an interview with Speaker Pelosi where she said "I'm not for impeachment", and suddenly there was an explosion that registered 9.6 on the outrage Richter scale.

"If there's to be grounds for impeachment of President Trump ― and I'm not seeking those grounds ― that would have to be so clearly bipartisan in terms of acceptance of it before I think we should go down any impeachment path", Pelosi told USA Today at the time.

"Every single Democrat running for president should be made to answer: do they agree with the Speaker who stands in opposition to baseless impeachment charges, or will they risk fracturing the country by bowing to the radical elements in their party who want to disenfranchise the American people and overturn the legitimate and lawful result of the last election?" said Trump campaign press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

"If you think impeaching Bill Clinton was a bad idea, which I think most Democrats do, then you now have to think impeaching Trump is a bad idea", Burstein said, unless something that is clearly an impeachable offense is uncovered.

Even if impeachment is off the table, though, Schiff says he still plans to pursue his multiple investigations into the White House, and has issued more than 60 subpoenas to witnesses across the globe, seeking information on the Trump Corporation's personal and financial affiliations, deals involving Deutch Bank, and connections between Trump associates and Russian officials.

Pelosi responded: "Are we talking ethically?"

"I happen to disagree with that take", socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said of Pelosi's statement.

"I don't think he is" fit to be president, she said in the interview. "And he's just not worth it", Pelosi said.

Seungri booked in sex bribery scandal
A petition surfaced last week calling for him to step aside after causing "unrecoverable damage to the group's reputation". Seungri , whose real name is Lee Seung-hyun, is a 28-year-old mogul and singer in South Korea's popular K-pop scene.

According to a recent Morning Consult tracking poll, 86 percent of Republicans and 43 percent of independents oppose the initiation of impeachment proceedings (only 36 percent of independents favor this step). Straightforward, just tell him what I think.

So Nancy Pelosi is correct to say that expending significant energy on impeachment would be pointless and divisive. Factories and farms across the midwest are shuttering, and while unemployment numbers get touted by his mouthpieces on cable news, digging deeper into stats tells a sadder story across the heartland.

Pelosi and her leadership team were facing pressure on impeachment from as soon as the Democrats took power. The Democratic base was ready for impeachment on day one, but the advocates of impeachment have not managed to persuade many more to join that cause. There are only 47 Democrats in the current Senate (counting the two independents, Angus King and Bernie Sanders), so at least 20 Republicans would have to vote to convict Trump.

Pelosi has long counseled her colleagues not to allow their talk on impeachment to get ahead of the facts - including the final report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

To be clear, I'm not saying that Pelosi should support impeachment hearings right now.

Former President Bill Clinton signed in to law what was considered a major welfare reform in The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996. The president was discussing immigration at the time he called certain countries s-hole countries and I might add these are countries where people of color were. Timing, Raskin said, "becomes more of a factor" in impeachment as elections near.

The public - and some Republicans - must support impeachment to proceed, she warned.
