Nancy Pelosi takes away Mike Pence’s House office

President Trump gave a shout-out to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday - for saying she does not support impeaching him - but he did not address her contention that he is unfit for office.

Our Verdict: Steyer won't let politics stand in the way of impeachment. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States".

But there is no suggestion, in any of the ongoing discussions by Democrats, for and against impeachment, of citing Trump's defiance of the congressional power to appropriate funds, laid down in Article I of the Constitution, as one of the possible articles of impeachment. Now comes the sad recognition that they have painted themselves into a corner, and hence Mrs. Pelosi's admission that she no longer supports impeachment. Pelosi's declaration that "he's just not worth it" is a tacit admission that there is no substance whatsoever to the anti-Russian campaign. I said that's good, Nancy.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday attacked New York Attorney General Letitia James by promoting analysis by loyal supporters Diamond and Silk.

"But not all Democrats are gelling with Pelosi's message. We are not governing with a focus on impeachment".

Public hearings-such as the recent session held with former Trump fixer Michael Cohen before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee-will convince the American public that Trump needs to be removed, Steyer said.

The Trump campaign quickly spoke out on Pelosi's comments and argued that Democrats running for office should be asked if they think the president should be impeached. "We need to concentrate on what we're fighting for".

But the speaker and other Democratic leaders in the House have said the decision would be based on such evidence - not about domestic factors like the economy. "And I see little to be gained by putting the country through that kind of wrenching experience".

In a surprising turn of events, Pelosi, a known critic of Donald Trump, said she is against the impeachment of the POTUS.

Among the policies pushed by the left-wing of the Democratic Party is the "Green New Deal", put forward by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. "Legally I don't think it's something that can ever be 100 percent off the table, but if that's how she feels right now I respect that", she told the press.
