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

It is too soon to decide whether impeachment proceedings should be launched against President Donald Trump, despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's contention he is "not worth" the effort, Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., said Wednesday.

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

For two full years, Democrats pinned their hopes on the report of the special counsel finding evidence of collusion with Russian Federation to initiate action against Mr. Trump. Within hours of the electoral victory that would make her speaker of the House, Pelosi publicly rejected impeaching Bush for waging a war based on lies.

"And he's just not worth it".

"I'm not for impeachment", the California Democrat said in an eye-opening interview with the Washington Post that was published Monday.

"In fact, when people say there is one way to get rid of him or another, actually you are making a decision", Steyer added. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States", she stated. "I didn't believe in it then; I don't believe in it now", Pelosi said.

"The now-public approach could help insulate Democrats from future criticism if the party does move forward with impeachment".

As for the two-year campaign by the Democrats denouncing Trump as a Russian agent and declaring his 2016 election victory to be the result of "meddling" by Vladimir Putin, Pelosi was silent. Instead, Pelosi plans to provide a new space for the White House legislative affairs team, which did not have an office under former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). We did not win on impeachment. The feisty politician simply said, "I'm not for impeachment", when asked about her stance regarding the issue.

"Nancy Pelosi is smart to say there shouldn't be an impeachment, because there's no grounds to do it", McCarthy said.

Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, who conducted an all-day televised hearing for Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer and "fixer", chimed in with his support.

"We don't have the facts yet, but we're going to initiate proper investigations", he said.

"There has been strong bipartisan support for Estonia, NATO and transatlantic relations in both houses of Congress", Ms Kaljulaid said at her meeting with Ms Pelosi according to a press release.

- Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez might not be willing to take "no" for an answer.
