Houston Rep. Al Green will push another impeachment vote, despite Pelosi's resistance

President Donald Trump delivers the State of the Union address as Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi look on at the Capitol in Washington D.C. Feb. 5 2019

"This is news. I'm going to give you some news right now because I haven't said this to any press person before", the House Speaker said.

Pelosi also recognizes that impeachment is a political process, not a legal one.

Last year, heading into the midterm elections, Pelosi discouraged candidates from talking up impeachment, preferring to stick to the kitchen table issues that she believes most resonate with voters. So, yeah, respectful, honest and hopeful, ' she said.

"I'm not for impeachment", Pelosi, D-Calif., told The Washington Post in an interview published Monday.

"He's just not worth it", Pelosi said in the interview. Does Pelosi think going forward with impeachment is elective?

Johnson, he said, was impeached in 1868 for "speaking ill of the House".

Nancy Pelosi wants nothing more than for Donald Trump to be removed from office and have Democrats back in control to restore law, order and sanity to Washington, D.C., and the country, but there are many variables to weigh. "I think we're seeing that on a lot of things that have taken place over the last couple of weeks", Sanders said, according to Fox News. Politico's savvy reporters speculate that Pelosi did this to create a holding pattern for Democrats, temporarily insulating them from unceasing questioning on this topic from activists by allowing them to blame Pelosi's opposition.

The problem, in part, is that Pelosi is answering the wrong question.

"You don't have to commit a crime to be impeached". Rather, it's: Are you ruling out impeachment hearings, or are you leaving that option open, depending on what emerges?

The building collapse was also confirmed by Kehinde Adebayo, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency. Associated Press video from the scene showed a dust-covered child being carried out of the rubble, to cheers.

"The reasoning goes that the Attorney-General might be unwilling to actually release it publicly if it looks like Democrats are going to try to use it to draft articles of impeachment".

Of course, there are decent arguments against impeachment. Those would weigh whether newly gathered facts merit impeachment or not, to inform the public of the momentous stakes and complexities involved in this decision.

"I don't think it's something we decide whether or not it's 'worth it, '" Jayapal said Monday night.

I am against impeachment. We have no idea where this will end up.

Green expressed frustration at "status quo" voices who admit Trump is unfit to serve as president but refuse to take action.

They worry that compelling evidence of wrongdoing from special counsel Robert Mueller - who is probing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election - would not change Republicans' minds, and they say Democrats need to be prepared to act on their own.

Third, even aside from the raw politics of the matter, impeaching a duly elected President is something that simply must be done based on an overwhelming, bipartisan consensus to be seen as legitimate. This can't be the threshold for beginning an inquiry.

The speaker's remarks angered the left, itself a development that cheered the Trump campaign and Republicans eager to cast Democrats as a party divided between its progressive wing and moderate, or establishment, camp.

On that second criteria, Pelosi appears to be putting the decision of a GOP Senate majority that has so far refused to condemn Trump on policy matters such as his emergency declaration for a border wall, or on personal matters like his payments to lawyer Michael Cohen and hush agreement with porn star Stormy Daniels. Less harm would have been done to the country and the future of its system of government if the House Judiciary Committee had voted to just let the whole Watergate affair slide, than it would for Congress to shrink from its duty now.
