Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi threw more cold-water on her colleagues’ non-stop efforts to remove the President from office this week; saying it’s simply “not worth” the political struggle to impeach Donald Trump.
The leading Democrat was speaking with the Washington Post when she broke with the liberal wing of her party.
“There have been increasing calls, including from some of your members, for impeachment of the president,” said the Post.
“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: 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. And he’s just not worth it,” said Pelosi.

DEMS DEFLECT: DNC Boss Says Congresswoman's ‘Motherf***er’ Comment a Result of ‘Passion’
DNC Boss Tom Perez joined the growing chorus of Democrats deflecting criticism from Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s vicious attack against President Trump this week; saying her ‘Impeach the mother***er’ comment was simply a result of her “passion.”
“Here’s the reality,” Perez said. “There’s a lot of passion in Washington. Sometimes when you’re passionate, you say things that aren’t artful as you like them to be.”
Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Kamala Harris also defended Tlaib’s comments this week; saying they were “no big deal” and she isn’t the “first elected person to curse in public.”
“The use of that language was a teachable moment for me,” Rashida told reporters in Michigan. “I understand I am a member of Congress, and I don’t want anything that I do or say to distract us. That is the only thing I apologize for, is that it was a distraction.”

The reaction on social media was swift, with users slamming the post as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” at its worst.
