"He's Just Not Worth It" - Volokh Conspiracy

Fox News host Neil Cavuto clashed with Democratic congressman Al Green (TX) on Tuesday over whether Donald Trump can or should be impeached, just days after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said it's "not worth" impeaching the president.

"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", Pelosi said. "I'm sure when we have bipartisan support the Congress will go forward", Rep. Brad Sherman, California Democrat, who introduced impeachment proceedings past year, told The Washington Times.

Since Trump's election, Democrats have twice tried to force votes on impeachment proceedings, winning a high-water mark of more than 60 supporters - far from the 218 needed.

What's more, this framing does not reckon with an important pathology of our political moment - the enormous propaganda apparatus behind Trump that is already bombarding Republican voters with disinformation painting all inquiry as illegitimate, likely ensuring they will never support any inquiry.

Even if impeachment is off the table, though, Schiff says he still plans to pursue his multiple investigations into the White House, and has issued more than 60 subpoenas to witnesses across the globe, seeking information on the Trump Corporation's personal and financial affiliations, deals involving Deutch Bank, and connections between Trump associates and Russian officials. Even if we did, we'd first have to answer the question: is impeachment called for in the situation we face now, or isn't it?

Nancy Pelosi stands up in her spacious office in the U.S. Capitol, walks past an enormous window with a commanding view of the Mall and the Washington Monument, and picks up a small plaque from her desk.

"He's just not worth it", she added.

According to FiveThirtyEight, nearly 41 per cent of Americans approve of Mr Trump's work in the White House. "I think a stronger argument can be made it's behind schedule". And I always say you're not going to hear me saying anything publicly that I'm not saying here in the office. "We are not governing with a focus on impeachment", he said.

Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., a member of House leadership, said Democrats ran on an agenda of controlling health care costs, raising incomes and fighting corruption.

Many Democrats have been planning to move impeachment proceedings, but seniors in the party have been more circumspect about it. But she said based on what's known now and the fact that the country is not behind any effort to remove him, "I'm not for impeachment", she said. There are only 47 Democrats in the current Senate (counting the two independents, Angus King and Bernie Sanders), so at least 20 Republicans would have to vote to convict Trump.

Although Pelosi said she believed it would be too divisive to impeach Trump, she characterized the president as unfit to hold office. That line stresses one concern raised by the anti-impeachment corner of the Democratic caucus: that by impeaching Trump, Democrats could damage their ability to take him down at the ballot box.

The formidable Democrat Speaker has argued attempts to derail the President without compelling evidence would only split the nation and cause social and political disarray. Mr. Cavuto, we live to exercise liberty and justice for all.

The public - and some Republicans - must support impeachment to proceed, she warned.
