‘I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country,’ speaker tells the Post

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the Washington Post that she does not believe House Democrats should move to impeach President Donald Trump.
“I’m not for impeachment,” the California Democrat said in an explosive interview published Monday.
“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,” Pelosi said. “And he’s just not worth it.”
The speaker’s statement will almost certainly provoke further divisions in her already fracturing caucus. Many progressives have called on their colleagues to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, while Pelosi and her leadership team have said Democrats should wait to see special counsel Robert Mueller III’s report before evaluating that step.
