CNN Reports: Pelosi Does Not Want to Pursue Impeachment

"She does not want to put the pedal on the gas towards impeachment..."

CNN’s Manu Raju reported on Monday that Speaker Pelosi does not wish to pursue impeaching President Trump, despite several House Democrats clamoring for such action following the release of the redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin asked Raju what Pelosi is saying about the possibility of impeachment ahead of a scheduled call with members of the House Democratic Caucus on Monday.

“Well, she’s making it very clear that she wants to go slow. She does not want to put the pedal on the gas towards impeachment. She’s been very clear about that for several weeks now, that that is not her preferred course of action,” Raju said.

Raju then quoted from a letter that Pelosi sent members of the House Democratic Caucus:

“While our views range from proceeding to investigate the findings of the Mueller report or proceeding directly to impeachment, we all firmly agree that we should proceed down a path of finding the truth. It is also important to know that the facts regarding holding the president accountable can be gained outside of impeachment hearings. As we proceed to uncover the truth and present additional needed reforms to protect our democracy, we must show the American people we are proceeding free from passion or prejudice, strictly on the presentation of fact.”

“That line, Brooke, about information that can also be gained outside of impeachment hearings is very clear about the path that she and other top Democrats want to go down. They want the investigation to take place,” Raju said.

Raju added that House Democrats want to launch this investigation in the House Judiciary Committee.

Democrats don’t “necessarily [want to] go down that path of impeachment, where Republicans are showing no willingness to go down,” Raju said.
