Nancy Pelosi is apparently no longer interested in trying to impeach Trump. The base of her party is going to lose their minds over this but Pelosi knows she couldn’t pull it off.
The Hill reports:
Pelosi says impeaching Trump ‘just not worth it’
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made her strongest comments to date on impeachment, saying in a new interview that President Trump is “just not worth it,” unless there’s bipartisan support for going down that road.
“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 in a Washington Post interview published Monday. “And he’s just not worth it.”
Pelosi told the newspaper last week that despite her opposition to impeachment, she does not believe Trump is fit to serve as president.
“Are we talking ethically? Intellectually? Politically? What are we talking here?” she said. “All of the above. No. No. I don’t think he is.”
The Speaker elaborated on her comments later Monday afternoon in remarks to reporters comparing the Trump impeachment push to the one that followed former President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq.

Pelosi isn’t alone in this. Even Adam Schiff is backing down:
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff told CNN that he agreed with Speaker Pelosi and that a “failed impeachment isn’t a good idea” and that it doesn’t make sense to move down that road “in the absence of very graphic evidence.” @mkraju

The far left billionaire Tom Steyer is pretty upset about this.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Tom Steyer hits Pelosi over refusal to impeach Trump: ‘Shall America just stop fighting for our principles’
Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, who has been on a crusade to impeach President Trump, slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for taking impeachment off the table…
“Speaker Pelosi thinks ‘he’s just not worth it?’ Well, is defending our legal system ‘worth it?’ Is holding the President accountable for his crimes and cover-ups ‘worth it?’ Is doing what’s right ‘worth it?’ Or shall America just stop fighting for our principles and do what’s politically convenient,” the Need to Impeach founder said in a statement.
Two years of investigations and they’ve got nothing.
