Schiff: Pelosi is 'absolutely right' on impeachment

Donald Trump with First Lady Melania and son Barron at the White House

Several panels in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives are also investigating the president.

The answer could be significantly influenced by the clock. Or is the evidence against him so thin that the future of his presidency properly should be determined in the next election?

Lest anyone cite crumbling support for Richard Nixon during impeachment proceedings in 1974 (leading to his coerced resignation) as precedent for the same thing happening to Trump, the fact is this is a very different and more right-wing Republican Party than the one that weighed Nixon's fate back then, and Trump's approval rating among Republicans is much higher.

'We didn't elect a majority of Democrats to the House to allow Republicans to determine the fate of the country...' Under the Constitution, presidents are barred from seeking a third term. Last week, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a freshman Democratic lawmaker from MI, said she would file such a resolution this month, claiming "every single colleague" of hers believed that the President has committed impeachable offenses. The Tennessee Democrat said he hasn't done so this session "because I don't think the votes are anywhere near being there".

Speaking to Fox News, Ms Sanders said she was "glad Ms Pelosi sees what the rest of us see, that there's no reason, no cause for impeachment".

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told The Washington Post that impeaching the president is "just not worth it".

"And he's just not worth it".

Pelosi's comments come before the arrival of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's potential collusion with Russian operatives and subsequent obstruction of justice.

After articles of impeachment are filed, the House has two days to decide what to do next.

House Democrats have faced mounting pressure from progressive groups to remove Trump from office.

Rep. James McGovern, a 12-term Democrat from MA who is also a member of the House Progressive Caucus, calls the president "unfit", "sad" and "pathetic".

Do you think President Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses?

Some believe that Speaker Pelosi is simply being coy, that she is gathering all the facts and when ready the impeachment process will begin.

"We do not now have the evidence all sorted out", Nadler told ABC's This Week program on 3 March.

"Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen", Nadler added. Would a failed impeachment of Donald Trump ultimately destroy any hopes of the Dems taking the White House in 2020? Neither was removed. In the aftermath of the U.S. Civil War, Johnson was impeached in 1868 after firing his secretary of war, only to be acquitted by the Senate.

The questionable actions of this president and his administration are so numerous that no fewer than six House committees have claims to jurisdiction over various aspects of them.

The Trump re-election campaign has also made note of the split within the Democrats and suggested the party's 2020 candidates should be separated into two groups based on their position on impeachment. Factories and farms across the midwest are shuttering, and while unemployment numbers get touted by his mouthpieces on cable news, digging deeper into stats tells a sadder story across the heartland.

Chabot offered some advice to his fellow Judiciary Committee members: "Move forward with great caution".

Is holding the President accountable "worth it?"

But she had been cautious in the past about impeaching him.

According to a recent Morning Consult tracking poll, 86 percent of Republicans and 43 percent of independents oppose the initiation of impeachment proceedings (only 36 percent of independents favor this step).
