Pelosi Doubles Down: Impeachment ‘Isn’t Worth Our Time’

Thursday at her weekly briefing, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) doubled down on her earlier comments saying the impeachment of President Donald Trump is not “worth it.”

Pelosi said, “When I say it isn’t worth our time, forty percent of the American people can not withstand a $500 surprise expense, be it their water heater or their carburetor or whatever it happens to be. Our focus is on what we said we would do, healthcare, job creation, cleaner government, gun safety, issues like that. And it is not worth our time to take our attention from that.”

She added, “If the Mueller report comes back with information, I don’t think we should impeach a president for political reasons, and I don’t think we should not impeach a president for political reasons. But you have to be ironclad in terms of your facts and we will see where that takes us.”
