DEM DISSENSION OVER TRUMP IMPEACHMENT PUSH: It appears the old guard in the Democratic Party does not see eye-to eye with its radical, progressive new guard in the push to impeach President Trump ... In an interview with the Washington Post on Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., revealed she’s opposed to impeachment in the absence of evidence that is “compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan" and because it would divide the country. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., said she would introduce articles of impeachment against Trump later this month. She and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, last month signed a “pledge” to impeach Trump.
When asked about Pelosi's reluctance to impeach in a Washington Examiner interview, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez replied: “I happen to disagree with that take.” The congresswoman added, “But you know, she’s the speaker. … I think we’ll see.” When asked about Democrats' disagreements on impeaching Trump, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland hit back at the three most outspoken freshman Democratic lawmakers, saying, "We’ve got 62 new (Democratic) members. Not three." He also conceded that anything the House might attempt would die in the Senate, which requires 67 years to convict and remove the president.
