Nancy Pelosi: 'Trump is goading us to impeach him'

Regardless of whether Democrats ultimately decide to impeach the president, Pelosi said "the Constitution will win the next presidential election".

"We can't impeach him for political reasons, and we can't not impeach him for political reasons", Pelosi continued.

"Many Americans were waiting to see how their elected officials would respond", McConnell said. Well, that will take as long as it does. "We have to operate in the Congress, in the courts, and in the courts of public opinion".

Pelosi has consistently emphasized that impeachment is extremely divisive, and in March she said Trump is "just not worth it".

Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump. In the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 75 percent of Republican registered voters say they have high interest in the 2020 presidential election - registering a "9" or "10" on a 10-point scale - versus 73 percent of Democratic voters who say the same thing. "And whatever it is, we'll be ready". I say to my colleagues, wherever it is, be ready.

Pelosi noted that the third article of impeachment drawn up against President Richard Nixon was for his failure to comply with congressional subpoenas regarding Watergate.

President Donald Trump weighed in today on the interference disqualification that shook Saturday's Kentucky Derby. There could be appeals to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission or the courts.

"So we have to operate on many fronts", she said.

The House is justified in seeking the full Mueller report "in order to exercise all of the powers of Congress, including impeachment", Pelosi said at Cornell.

Republicans have largely united behind the president, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday declaring "case closed" on Mueller's Russian Federation probe and potential obstruction by Trump.

Pelosi added, "the facts, the data, the evidence, the truth is what we want to base our decisions on and the administration should be willing to share that unless they have something to hide and that's what we will find out".

But Congress has other options besides indictment, she said.

Democrats had two advantages that fueled their midterm victories in November 2018 - an edge in enthusiasm and success with independent voters. Separately, the Treasury Department has rejected Democrats' request for six years' of the president's tax returns, setting up another fight that will wind up in the courts.
