'Trump's just not worth it' - Pelosi against 'divisive impeachment'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. speaks at an Economic Club of Washington luncheon gathering in Washington Friday

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) was undeterred Tuesday by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) warning against attempts to impeach President Trump Monday.

The 17-term California Democrat recalled the divisiveness of President Bill Clinton's impeachment, which she said was "horrible for the country", and said she would not be willing to go through that again without "overwhelming and bipartisan" justification.

"Speaker Pelosi thinks 'he's just not worth it?' Well, is defending our legal system 'worth it?' Is holding the President accountable for his crimes and cover-ups 'worth it?' Is doing what's right 'worth it?' Or shall America just stop fighting for our principles and do what's politically convenient?" he said in a statement.

"Having said that", Courtney added, "there are certain circumstances, which I don't think we're in right now - sometimes you just have to do what you have to do if the country's at great risk". Pelosi has previously said she would wait for the results of Mueller's report before making a decision on impeaching Trump.

If SDNY eventually presents a report of Trump's misconduct to Congress in some form, Pelosi may have already undermined its case for impeachment.

"I will do as my conscience dictates", Green said, going on to quote from Federalist Paper 65, one of several founding documents chiefly authored by John Jay, the first Supreme Court justice, and Alexander Hamilton. She told reporters last week she will soon introduce an impeachment resolution in an effort to begin the process.

Pelosi's comments come after senior Democratic chairs have stepped up their probes of Trump's finances and the Trump White House.

The speaker's ability to keep the House Democratic Caucus-which spans the political spectrum from moderate liberals to Democratic Socialists-is also at play, the strategists said. "I know that this is hard for them to run against in 2020 and I think they've got a very, very hard uphill battle ahead of them".

But the United States has not followed suit and grounded the 737 MAX, and Boeing has said it has "full confidence" in its safety, as has Southwest Airlines and American Airlines, per The New York Times. But she said based on what's known now and the fact that the country is not behind any effort to remove him, "I'm not for impeachment", she said.

Hollow attacks by some in our party failed to scar the political beast as she fought her way back into power and nearly immediately proved her worth (again) when she didn't blink an eye as Trump threw his childish tantrum of shutting down the government over his vanity wall.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., noted that the majority of freshman members have not been outspoken on impeachment, and that the Senate remains controlled by Republicans.

"We will all go on record", Green said. "She has now dismissed both the left's obsession with a risky and likely doomed effort to impeach Trump, and Trump himself, driving him insane". Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who said last week that she's planning to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump this month, seemed to stay on that course after Pelosi's comments. And I always say you're not going to hear me saying anything publicly that I'm not saying here in the office.
