By W.M - March 12, 2019


US Congressional Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi said in an interview on Monday at the Washington Post that she would be opposed to launching impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, an initiative that she said would divide the country. It is the House of Representatives, of which she is the chair, that would be responsible for launching impeachment proceedings.
An impeachment procedure would divide the country so much that unless there is something really convincing and overwhelming and supported by both parties (republican and democrat, ed), I do not think we should choose this path, because it divides the country. And it's just not worth it, "she said. "I'm not for impeachment," said Nancy Pelosi.
Since they took control of the House of Representatives in January, Democrats have launched numerous parliamentary investigations against Donald Trump and his entourage, which could serve as a basis for impeachment proceedings. In parallel, the special prosecutor Robert Mueller, who has been investigating for almost two years on suspicions of collusion between Donald Trump's campaign team and Moscow in 2016, may soon present his conclusions.
But as Nancy Pelosi has already suggested, unless these investigations are truly conclusive, the Democratic leaders prefer for the moment to avoid the prospect of impeachment. Some strategists including fear it will galvanize the Republican base before the next presidential election in November 2020 and would prefer to beat the Republican to the polls.
The call to launch impeachment proceedings is however stronger in the progressive wing of the party, particularly among several new high-profile politicians. For now, any attempt to remove the 45th President of the United States would not go far: if the Democrats are in a position to vote his impeachment in the House, it is in the Senate, controlled by the Republicans, that it would then come back to trial.
