As Democrats won House at the latest midterm election, California Representative Nancy Pelosi suggested that the idea to impeach President Donald Trump is off the table.
Pelosi spoke in a couple of interviews, saying that impeachment was unlikely and not a move Democrats would pursue.
“I don’t think there’s any impeachment unless it’s bipartisan,” she told CNBC.”Our priority is to get results for the American people.”
Speaking in an interview on Tuesday night, Pelosi said the same on PBS regarding the impeachment of Trump.
“That serves their purpose, to say that. We certainly will honor our responsibility as oversight of the executive branch,” Pelosi said, adding that the investigation from special counsel Robert Mueller would have to turn up conclusive evidence to spark the impeachment process.
“For those who want impeachment, that’s not what our caucus is about,” Pelosi said.
The White House touted the night as a big victory for Trump, despite the House results.
“Look, I think a huge victory for the President tonight with the announcement of the Senate looking like it’s definitely going to stay with Republicans—and pick up a couple of seats,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News. “The President spent the last week campaigning heavily for Senate candidates, and we’re seeing the payoff.”
