For those who aren't Trump shills that post rwing spin "news" stories from Newsmax, here's the rest of the story:
"Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday suggested that House Democrats should refrain from pushing for President Trump's impeachment, warning that a premature effort to oust the president could undermine her case for doing so down the road.
"The public isn't there on impeachment. It's your voice and constituency, but give me the leverage I need to make sure that we're ready and it is as strong as it can be," Pelosi told Democrats during a caucus-wide conference call on Friday afternoon, according to a source on the call.
Pelosi made the comments in response to Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), who shared how people in her district wanted to talk about impeachment.
While advocating for a cautious approach, Pelosi didn't rule out the possibility of impeachment. The Democratic leader has faced continued pressure on the issue as the number of Democrats who have come out in support for impeachment in some form has swelled to at least 130.
"The equities we have to weigh are our responsibility to protect and defend the Constitution and to be unifying and not dividing. But if and when we act, people will know he gave us no choice. If he cannot respect the Constitution, we'll have to deal with that. It's about patriotism, not partisanship," Pelosi said Friday.
Polling suggests that the public isn't yet sold on impeachment. A Monmouth University poll released Thursday found that 59 percent of voters say Trump should not be impeached, even though a majority of voters want to see a new president in the White House. Only 35 percent said that they think Trump should be impeached."
It's slightly possible that with enough public opinion behind an impeachment, the GOP Sen might be forced to at least pretend to consider conviction. Without public backing, which as Pelosi says is no there yet, there is no chance they will do anything but not convict Trump... even if he "shoots someone dead on 5th Ave."
