WASHINGTON — Newly elected Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Friday shied away from moving forward with impeachment at this time, calling it a "divisive" option and saying that the language used by one of her colleagues to describe President Trump was no "worse" than what he has said."I do think that we want to be unified and bring people together. Impeachment is a very divisive approach to take and we shouldn’t take it ... without the facts," Pelosi said during an MSNBC town hall at Trinity University in Washington, D.C., her alma mater.
Her comments came the morning after one of the newly elected members of Congress, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., told a progressive audience that Democrats are going to "impeach the motherf---er," using an expletive to refer to the president.
"I probably have a generational reaction to it," Pelosi said in reaction to Tlaib's comments, but added, "I'm not in the censorship business. I don't like that language, I wouldn't use that language, but I wouldn't establish language standards for my colleagues."
Wow!....Just take it in for a second....This is what we are headed for....Foul language, outright lying about intentions, overall divisive, and vitriolic behavior. And the new speaker condoning it by not curtailing it....Congratulations Democrats, this is what your new majority brings to our Congress....
