Donald Trump appreciates Nancy Pelosi's 'statement against impeachment'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claps at President Donald Trump during his State of the Union address in February

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., broke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday on the topic of potentially impeaching President Trump. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States".

Nancy Pelosi then explained why she is against it by saying, "Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country". "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".

The most revealing comment came from Pelosi on Monday night, when she recalled that some Democrats had wanted her to consider impeaching President George W. Bush in 2007 and 2008 for invading Iraq based on lies about weapons of mass destruction.

Trump subsequently retweeted Diamond and Silk, a seeming endorsement of their analysis of the Hatch Act, which says that most executive branch employees are prohibited from engaging in certain political activities. Democrats captured the House majority in the 2018 midterm elections. The Democrats were the undeserving beneficiaries of this popular hostility to the Iraq war, which they had largely supported.

The Tennessee Titans and Cameron Wake have agreed to a three-year deal worth $23 million, according to Adam Schefter. Through his time in Miami, Wake played in 146 games and amassed 98 sacks, 360 tackles and 22 forced fumbles.

Just after the New Year, during a Rose Garden press conference, the president claimed Pelosi had assured him she's not looking into impeachment.

Pelosi clearly sees the connection between her role in 2006-2007 and her role today: whatever the disputes between the Democrats and Republicans, she is committed to uphold the interests of the military-intelligence apparatus and American imperialism more generally. He backs up the hate that Trump supports, according to the Times. If Congress opts against impeachment regardless of what the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, reports, would that set the bar so high that impeachment will no longer be a viable option?

Steyer, who has pursued Trump's impeachment with commercials, town hall meetings across the country, as well as TV appearances, wants Pelosi to pursue impeachment even if it's politically hard. "And he's just not worth it", she told the Post. And they also know Vice President Mike Pence is Trump's eyes and ears in Congress because former speaker Paul Ryan gave Pence an honorary office on the House side of Capitol Hill.

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.
