"On a political side, I think it's a gift to the Republicans to talk about impeachment," Pelosi said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that Democrats don’t have the necessary evidence to impeach President Trump and that she discourages any discussion of impeachment, during her weekly press conference on Thursday.

A reporter asked Pelosi about comments former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) made regarding impeachment. During a recent interview, Reid said Democrats who are pushing impeachment should stop.

“I don’t think we should be talking about impeachment,” Pelosi said.

More than 60 House Democrats have supported bringing forward articles of impeachment against Trump.

“They criticized me when I was Speaker before for not impeaching President Bush,” Pelosi said. “Impeachment is a very serious matter. It is. If it happens, it has to be a bipartisan initiative. I don’t think that we have the information to go to that place, and I discourage any discussion of impeachment.”

“On a political side, I think it’s a gift to the Republicans to talk about impeachment,” Pelosi said.
