House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told The Washington Post she is not planning on launching impeachment proceedings against President Trump, saying, “He’s just not worth it,” and that impeachment is too divisive. She called Trump “ethically and intellectually unfit” for the presidency but said Congress would require an overwhelming and bipartisan reason for impeachment. In response, Washington congressmember and Progressive Caucus co-chair Pramila Jayapal said that congressional investigations should determine the appropriate course of action, and that evidence of a “consistent pattern of abuse of power, [or] of obstruction of justice” would be grounds for impeachment. Meanwhile, Michigan Congressmember Rashida Tlaib is expected to introduce articles of impeachment this month.
