I mean, these were here actual words:
‘“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before,” Pelosi said. “But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”’
To me, this is just a variation on what various other people have said – “unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan…” And what she actually means at the end is, Trump isn’t worth wrecking the country over an impeachment process that isn’t “obvious”, not that he’s not worth impeaching at all. At least that’s how I read it. In my mind the Mueller probe has chapter and verse, and more than enough to reach that standard. And in obvious ways, too. Trump isn’t some master criminal who’s discovered some secret “I’m not guilty” powder, he’s only ever escaped serious consequences because of pleas, or being not worth the effort (notice the theme…), and so on.
What will happen when someone other than Trump in the Trump clan is indicted? Will Trump use the “I barely knew him/her” line? Will he issue a pardon? None of the supposed fairy dust that may prevent a president from being indicted applies to anyone else. So he’ll have some choices to make…
