The answer could be significantly influenced by the clock. As long as Republicans assert that they disagree the president should be impeached, the argument is, de facto, over, based on Pelosi's reasoning.

Democrats face growing pressure from the left for impeachment, including a multimillion-dollar ad campaign from the liberal billionaire Tom Steyer to build support for action against Trump.

Several panels in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, including one headed by House judiciary chairman Jerrold Nadler, have just opened investigations into nearly every aspect of Mr Trump's life. "That's why they voted him into office". Under the Constitution, presidents are barred from seeking a third term.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, who would be in charge of any impeachment proceedings, said he agrees with Pelosi in an interview with ABC News.

"By sending this signal that Democrats won't impeach, reasoning goes that will make it more likely that the report will get released publicly".

"He's just not worth it". "I think we're seeing that on a lot of things that have taken place over the last couple of weeks", Sanders said, according to Fox News. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States".

Something that might deliver the overwhelming and bipartisan reason Ms Pelosi wants is Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference at the 2016 presidential election. Several congressional committees have launched their own investigations.

Mr Trump hit back on Twitter, calling the investigation "ridiculous".

After articles of impeachment are filed, the House has two days to decide what to do next.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) booted Vice President Mike Pence from his ceremonial office space in the US Capitol on Tuesday, ending a sweetheart deal set up by former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI). "We do not now have the evidence all sorted out", Nadler told ABC's "This Week" programme on March 3.

But he told ABC News that ahead of any impeachment proceedings, lawmakers would need to convince the American public that members were "not just trying to. reverse the results of the last election".

Pelosi accomplished an astonishing amount in the four years that Democrats held the House, including the high-wire legislating it took to deliver the Affordable Care Act to President Barack Obama's desk in 2010. Neither was removed. In the aftermath of the U.S. Civil War, Johnson was impeached in 1868 after firing his secretary of war, only to be acquitted by the Senate.

"At the end of the day, there are 239 members of the House Democratic caucus and the overwhelming majority of those members have made clear that we should proceed with caution with respect to impeachment", Jeffries said.

"We will all go on record", Green said. "Is holding the President accountable 'worth it?' Is doing what's right 'worth it?' Or shall America just stop fighting for our principles and do what's politically convenient?"

CNN's Alex Rogers wrote: "Pelosi's comments published Monday are perhaps her strongest yet against the issue, but the speaker has signaled for months her resistance to pushing for impeachment". Chabot quickly added that he doubts there will be such evidence.
