House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi weighed-in on Democratic donors increased calls for Trump’s impeachment Thursday; deflecting the question and saying the issue “is not divisive” among liberal lawmakers.
“On the issue of impeachment, can you just explain a little bit about how Democrats are dealing with those in the party or in the base who are interested in this issue, especially some of the big donors?” asked one reporter during Pelosi’ weekly press briefing.
“It is important for us to win this election so that we can meet the needs of the American people. Whether or not the President should be impeached is a matter being dealt with in the Justice Department,” said Pelosi.
“Many of my members have supported Mr. Green’s [impeachment] amendment when it came to the floor,” she added. “This is not a divisive issue in our caucus.”

AMERICAN IDIOT: Green Day Singer SMEARS ‘Sick’ Trump, DEMANDS Impeachment
The lead singer of rock group Green Day viciously attacked President Trump on social media Tuesday, calling the Commander-in-Chief’s tough talk with North Korea “sick” and urging his followers to demand the President’s immediate impeachment.
The “American Idiot” singer Billie Joe Armstrong smeared the President on his official Instagram account just hours after Trump warned North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that he too has a “nuclear button,” but unlike Kim’s his “button works.”
“This isn’t funny. This is our president acting like a madman drunk on power THREATENING to kill innocent starving people by way of nuclear war,” posted Armstrong. “The 25th amendment needs to be enforced. This man is sick and unfit for office. I don’t care if your liberal or conservative.. this has to stop . Please share #impeachtrump.”

Armstrong is no stranger to left-wing politics and liberal protests. The Green Day front man released “American Idiot” in 2004; an album largely seen as a widespread critique of former President George W. Bush and American culture.
The album went on to sell over 16 million copies worldwide, and was eventually transformed into a major Broadway musical.
DELUSIONAL DEMAND: Democrats Call for 'Nazi' Trump IMPEACHMENT by Christmas
Liberal lawmakers renewed their calls for President Trump’s impeachment this week, setting a Christmas deadline for the removal of the Commander-in-Chief over allegations he “colluded” with Russians and incites “white nationalism.”
Texas Representative Al Green urged his fellow liberal colleagues to file articles of impeachment before the new year; accusing the President of “xenophobia, sexism, and ethnocentrism.”
“I now announce that before Christmas, there will be a vote on the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism and ethnocentrism,” he said on the floor of the House of Representatives, calling on Democrats to “continue to reject what the inciter in chief, Donald J. Trump has been causing this country to have to endure.”
According to Fox News, Green’s legislation “covered four articles of impeachment,” accusing the President of “inciting white supremacy, sexism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, race-baiting, and racism by demeaning, defaming, disrespecting and disparaging women and certain minorities.”
“[Trump brought] shame and dishonor to the office of the presidency by associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism and neo-Nazism,” Green added.
