Nancy Pelosi takes away Mike Pence’s House office

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he "greatly" appreciated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opposing impeaching him, saying "he's just not worth it".

Our Verdict: Steyer won't let politics stand in the way of impeachment.

Mr. Pence is an annoyance, and a snoop, as well as an evangelical bigot, and Pelosi wants him to do his Trump-thumping somewhere else.

"I'm going to bring it the floor of the House again", Green said Tuesday morning on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal". "While we have impeachment authority, we need to be very cognizant of what the American people believe, and I agree with the speaker, that the probability of success is low, and the distraction would be major".

He characteristically ignored any unfavorable facts of his administration, such as the various guilty pleas and indictments against former Trump officials and campaign workers as Robert Mueller investigates allegations of collusion between him and Russian Federation. One of her first orders of business has been to strip Vice President Mike Pence of a mostly ceremonial office gifted to him by former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-MN). She said that the president is "just not worth it".

Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries of NY made this point bluntly: "We did not run on impeachment".

Schakowsky said, "We need to get rid of Donald Trump and I don't think impeaching in the House is going to do it and so we need to do it by the 2020 election".

"I think the more candidates the better", he said.

So what we see here is the leader of the Republican party raising the specter of impeachment, while the ostensible leader of the Democratic party tamping down impeachment talk.

Last month, after Trump declared a national emergency and ordered the Pentagon to shift funds appropriated by Congress for military construction to build his border, Pelosi said, quite correctly, that in seeking to bypass the congressional "power of the purse", Trump was "shredding the Constitution". "We are not governing with a focus on impeachment".

The Trump campaign quickly spoke out on Pelosi's comments and argued that Democrats running for office should be asked if they think the president should be impeached.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, one of the main promoters of the bogus allegations of Russian intervention in the U.S. elections, said Pelosi was "absolutely right" about the need for evidence so compelling that there would be bipartisan support for Trump's removal.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer know Trump is in hot water. "And I see little to be gained by putting the country through that kind of wrenching experience".
