Nancy Pelosi Losing Control Over Democratic Party

  • U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference annual meeting at National Harbor in Oxon Hill Maryland U.S

Nancy Pelosi stands up in her spacious office in the U.S. Capitol, walks past an enormous window with a commanding view of the Mall and the Washington Monument, and picks up a small plaque from her desk.

Pelosi's comments come after senior Democratic chairs have stepped up their probes of Trump's finances and the Trump White House. Pelosi's aides meet regularly with all of them to make sure they are staying in their lanes.

Pelosi's suggestion that impeachment hearings can proceed only with "bipartisan" support is also unnecessarily self-constraining.

"I see little to be gained by putting the country through that kind of wrenching experience", he said at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

She rejects pushing the impeachment agenda without clear-cut proof that the president has done something illegal. "This is news. I'm going to give you some news right now because I haven't said this to any press person before", Pelosi said.

"First, she rightly recognizes that the effect of ending up in a place where impeaching a president probably is not good in the long run for the country", Burstein said. Before the vote on a resolution that failed in December 2017, Pelosi asked Democrats to hold off, citing the special counsel's Trump investigation and calling the vote a distraction from efforts to kill the Republican tax bill.

"They're [Democrats] aware that it's a deeply divided country at the moment", Dr Smith said. And it's a departure from her previous comments that Democrats are waiting on special counsel Robert Mueller to lay out findings from his Russian Federation investigation before considering impeachment. "If it's a consistent pattern of abuse of power, of obstruction of justice. then that to me seems like it will be impeachable". They have a major problem though: The Speaker.

Tlaib is one of three first-year freshmen challenging Pelosi on a number of issues, including the impeachment.

"If it's going to be a political disaster for us, then we're not going to do it", she said.

Some 75 Conservative MPs rebelled to vote against the deal, while just three Labour MPs and four independents joined the 235 Tories who backed it.

Any evidence of wrongdoing could prompt Congress to act against the president, who is the subject of several investigations in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. And he says it doesn't matter if it's a tough vote for moderate Democrats, some of whom contributed to the wins Democrats needed in November to take back the majority. Pelosi has long called such a move premature.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) agreed that the planes should not continue to fly "until we investigate the causes of recent crashes and ensure the plane's airworthiness." Sen.

And without being overly naive or abstract, Pelosi should consider what her decision to write a blank check to the GOP on impeachable offenses means for the country.

Still, those who are hopeful for impeachment are reading into Nancy Pelosi's statement that if there were credible evidence and something substantial an impeachment process could begin.

Democrats control the House today because they were able to win previous year in places such as Orange County, Calif.

"Do we want to drag him down or do we want to lift people up?" Impeachment was not discussed, according to an aide who requested anonymity to discuss the closed meeting.

"I wouldn't go as far as the Speaker", said Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., in an interview with CNN Monday.

"If there's to be grounds for impeachment of President Trump ― and I'm not seeking those grounds ― that would have to be so clearly bipartisan in terms of acceptance of it before I think we should go down any impeachment path", Pelosi told USA Today at the time.
