Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continued to defy calls from far-left Democrats to impeach President Trump this week; saying her caucus is “not even close” to removing the Commander-in-Chief from office.
“It’s not even close in our caucus,” said Pelosi Tuesday. “Why are we speculating on hypotheticals?”
“It’s not off the table,” the speaker said, before adding, “I don’t think you should impeach for political reasons and I don’t think you should not impeach for political reasons.”
“It’s not about politics,” Pelosi said. “It’s not about Democrats and Republicans. It’s not about partisanship. It’s about patriotism to our country.”

President Trump called-out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last Friday; slamming the top Democrat after she told her colleagues she’d like to see the Commander-in-Chief “in prison” rather than impeached.
“Nervous Nancy Pelosi is a disgrace to herself and her family for having made such a disgusting statement, especially since I was with foreign leaders overseas. There is no evidence for such a thing to have been said. Nervous Nancy & Dems are getting Zero work done in Congress and have no intention of doing anything other than going on a fishing expedition to see if they can find anything on me – both illegal & unprecedented in U.S. history. There was no Collusion – Investigate the Investigators! Go to work on Drug Price Reductions & Infrastructure!” tweeted Trump.

“’I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,’ Pelosi said, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting. Instead of impeachment, Pelosi still prefers to see Trump defeated at the ballot box and then prosecuted for his alleged crimes, according to the sources,” reports Politico.
“They said she was expressing solidarity with pro-impeachment Democrats who want to hold the president accountable while disputing the idea that it is now time to take that step. Pelosi has long argued that certain conditions must be met before Democrats begin impeachment — public support and strong bipartisan backing, neither of which have so far materialized,” adds the article.
'NO BIG DEAL': Pelosi Refuses to Condemn Colleague Who Called Trump ‘Motherf***er’
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn a fellow Democrat who viciously called President Trump a ‘motherf***er’ just hours after being sworn in; saying “I’m not in the censorship business.”
Pelosi was asked to comment on Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s fiery speech at an event hosted by MoveOn.org Thursday night; telling a crowd of supporters the Democrats are “going to impeach that motherf***er!”
“I probably have a generational reaction to it,” Pelosi said. “But in any event, I’m not in the censorship business. I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language. I don’t … establish any language standards for my colleagues, but I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”
“Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it,” she added.

“Do you agree with Chairman Nadler that the country is currently in a Constitutional crisis?” asked one reporter during Pelosi’s weekly press briefing.
“Yes, I do agree with Chairman Nadler. The administration has decided that they’re not going to honor their oath of office. He’s staked out, because he has seen so much of the committee work. I’m very proud of the Judiciary Committee,” said Pelosi.
“When we’re ready, we’ll come to the floor. And we’ll see, there may be some other issues that we’ll want to deal with at the same time,” she added.
