Pelosi Won’t Say Whether She Encourages Dems to Talk About Impeachment

While denying that she supported starting the process, the House Minority Leader wouldn’t say whether she encouraged her members to discuss other possibilities.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stammered through an equivocation on whether she encouraged her members to publicly talk about impeaching President Trump at a CNN town hall on Monday.

Host Chris Cuomo asked Pelosi if she discouraged her members from discussing impeachment.

“It’s a reflection of what they’re hearing in their own constituencies,” Pelosi said.

The House Minority Leader then sputtered through a few sentences that did not answer the question before finally saying, “they know I don’t subscribe to that [view].”

“What are the facts?” she asked of a situation requiring impeachment.

“What are the rules he may have violated? If you don’t have that case, you’re just participating in more hearsay,” she said.

Pelosi never answered whether she has coordinated with her caucus members on the impeachment question.
