    I have heard Pelosi on multiple occasions in her own words saying impeachment is NOT off the table. The media wants conflict, they want scandal.

    This headline from your link is dishonest:
    Apparently Nothing Trump Does Will Convince Nancy Pelosi to Impeach Him
    They cite NPR without a link so we don't know how old this is or whether it is Pelosi's words or something she no longer stands by:
    Nevertheless, according to NPR, Pelosi still believes that impeachment hearings would “alienate” swing voters and harm Democrats in 2020. I don’t know how many ways there are to articulate a counterargument to this point, but we’ve pretty much covered them all here at Splinter.
    She may very well still believe it will alienate voters but still not be against it.

    I was disappointed hearing Pelosi say we need to collect the evidence when Mueller's report spelled out obstruction of justice on four different occasions.

    However, I'm bothered when the media repeats she's against impeachment when I have heard her myself say that is not true.

    I'm happy to have patience. I would like to see the Democrats get a little more feisty in the House hearings. They did a piss-poor job in my opinion interviewing Lewandowski.

    Trump, on the other hand, feeling more invincible apparently is making stupider mistakes by the day.


    As for repercussions, focus on McConnell, not on Pelosi.
