She claims to be “done” talking about Trump…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) indicated that despite a public statement from special counsel Robert Mueller chastising President Trump this week, she remains in no hurry to impeach him.

On Thursday evening on Jimmy Kimmel Live, she said she was “done” talking about him, according to the Washington Post.

“I’m done with him, in terms of talking about him,” she said. “What we want to talk about is, let’s build the infrastructure of America and not have him stomp out of the room.”

Mueller’s conference fueled Democrat calls for Trump’s impeachment after he suggested during his press conference that only Congress could “formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing.”

Pelosi was vague about whether Congress would seek to impeach Trump. “We’ve been on that path for a while,” she said. “When we do get to where we’re going, we’re going to be ready.”

While impeachment is popular among Democrats, it remains unpopular for the American electorate, according to a poll published Friday by Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll.

The poll showed that a plurality of voters oppose impeaching and removing Trump, despite a strong majority of Democrat voters who favor it. Forty-three percent oppose impeachment, including 44 percent of independents. The poll was taken after Mueller’s statement.

Impeachment is also highly unlikely. Even if the House voted to begin impeachment, it would hit a wall in the Senate, where Trump enjoys a Republican majority and at least tacit support.

Pelosi acknowledged this reality, telling Kimmel that the challenge would be convincing Republicans in the Senate, whom she described as “completely in the pocket of Donald Trump.”

If impeachment fails in the Senate, Trump would feel exonerated, she said.

“He knows it’s not a good idea to be impeached, but the silver lining for him is then he believes he would be exonerated by the United States Senate, and there’s a school of thought that says if the Senate acquits you, why bring charges against him in the private sector when he’s no longer president?”

Fox News’s Senior Capitol Hill Producer Chad Pergram discussed the risks of impeachment for Democrats on the Hemmer Time radio show.

“Impeachment is all consuming,” he said. “They won’t be able to focus on much of anything else like healthcare or the economy.”

“Right now, the public temperature is not for impeachment,” he added.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), a close Pelosi ally who is continuing to investigate whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, also seemed lukewarm on impeachment.

“I’m not there yet,” Schiff said, according to Politico. “Although the president seems to be doing everything in his power to get me there.”

“When we go there with our case, it’s gotta be ironclad,” Pelosi said.

  1. Just like the Mueller report was supposed to be iron clad. It was on collusion but Mueller pulled a Comey on obstruction, and left a sliver for the snakes to crawl through.

  2. This is a ridiculous boring subject at this point.. Please get on with fixing the horrible border problem. Have the democrats no brains.??

    1. Nope. Not a single brain cell among them. And, IF you could find two brain cells among them, they would be fighting.

  3. Pelosi says the Senate is in Trump’s power, let me translate that from elitist neo-nazis for you, in free English that would read, the Senate still represent the American people and Democracy. Lying skank Pelosi, she is not that smart I could undo her spin all day long.

  4. Thank God for a Republican Senate majority if things get that far!

    The Democrats in Congress need to shut their mouths and quit chasing imagined conspiracy theories. I hope they’ve done enough to shift the Congress to a Republican majority in the 2020 election. I know they’ve done enough that this former Democrat would never consider voting for a Democratic candidate again in my lifetime.

  5. Why does everyone think impeachment is removal from office. Please read your Constitution. Impeachment only takes place in the house of representatives. Then the senate has to try to convict the president and the supreme court judges are there to preside over the trial. Then and only then, if convicted is the president removed. The senate has NO PART in the impeachment proceedings.



  8. The Democrats need to get off of their low mule and do some work for the American Public like they were elected to do or get the sam hill out of the government and let in people who will work for American People!!!!

    1. Evalyn You are exactly right. These people need to get over this “investigation” mania that they’ve created and start to represent the American People that sent them to Washington. What they are doing is about 180 degrees out of phase of representation at this point. They are an embarrassment.

  9. He probably won’t “Stomp out of the Room” if you keep your uncontrolled mouth shut. Remember? You accused him, openly, of creating a “cover up” just before you were to meet him. What is he supposed to do? Smile and give you a hug when you just stabbed him in the back. You need to take a long look at yourself in the mirror before you make more stupid remarks such as this. You are an embarrassment to the institution you supposedly represent and to the American People. Go home and stay!!!
