Pelosi backs down on impeachment threat, says it’s ‘not worth the trouble’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appears to be attempting to end the speculation that she will launch a new impeachment attempt after Trump nominates a new Supreme Court justice this weekend. 

Pelosi said on Thursday that she believes that it’s “not worth the trouble” of attempting another impeachment, despite her veiled threat to do so last Sunday.

“I don’t think he’s worth the trouble at this point, we have 40 days until the election,” Pelosi told reporters asking about her plans.It’s no use orchestrating one thing or another when what really matters in terms of the peaceful transfer of power is that people vote.”

However, only days after Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, Pelosi told ABC’s George Stephanopolous that Democrats will use all the “arrows in our quiver” to block the nomination.

Pelosi received immediate blowback after the statement and appears to have re-evaluated the wisdom of launching another disastrously unpopular impeachment effort.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) threatened to remove Pelosi from her position as speaker of the House if she attempts impeachment.

“I will make you this one promise, listening to the speaker on television this weekend, if she tries to move for an impeachment based upon the president following the Constitution, I think there will be a move on the floor to no longer have the question of her being Speaker. She may think she has a quiver — we do too,” McCarthy warned.
