In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Pelosi was asked if she will try to impeach President Trump if Democrats win back the House.
“Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer recently launched a $10 Million ad campaign calling for the impeachment of President Trump. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham says that if you and the Democrats take the House back in 2018, the first thing you will do is impeach President Trump. Is that true?” asked Tapper.
“No. I believe that whatever we do, we have a responsibility, first and foremost, to unify the nation. Second of all, you can’t go down any path without the facts and the law. If that’s there, perhaps it will come out in these investigations,” responded Pelosi.
It appears she is finally realizing how unpopular she is and is trying to win some people back. Or she is trying to trick Republicans into thinking she’s not a threat. Or maybe she just knows she wouldn’t be able to impeach Trump.
“The left of our party is still annoyed with me for not impeaching President Bush for going into Iraq. What could be worse than that? But the fact is that we’ve gotta really be saying what this election means to people in their lives. [If] somebody has some facts that come forth about President Trump, let the chips fall where they may — but it’s not some place that I think we should go,” said Pelosi.
