Pelosi: Impeaching Trump ‘Off the Table’

House Minority Leader Nancy said that she would not impeach President Trump for political reasoning, adding that impeachment was “off the table,” during an interview with Rolling Stone published on Monday.

Rolling Stone’s Tim Dickerson asked Pelosi what she thought about Democrats who are calling for Trump’s impeachment ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

“I think it’s a gift to the Republicans,” Pelosi said. “Because people really want to know how we will improve their lives. We don’t really know what Mueller has. We have a responsibility, if we have information, to act upon it. But we don’t know what Mueller has.”

Pelosi explained that when she became Speaker in 2006, some Democrats wanted to impeach former President George W. Bush because of the Iraq War.

“Going into the [‘06] election, I said it’s off the table. I didn’t mean it’s off the table if you had some goods. If somebody has information, then we can act upon it. But from what we know now, it’s off the table,” Pelosi said.

Dickerson then asked if impeaching Trump was also off the table.

“Even with Trump. If you got something, show it. But I’m not going after it. What we’re going after is the economic security of America’s working families,” Pelosi said.
