WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants Chairman Jerry Nadler and other fellow Democrats on the Judiciary Committee to know she is not happy with them pursuing impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
In a closed-door meeting last week, Pelosi sternly warned members and aides that she didn’t have the floor votes for an impeachment –and that Nadler (D-N.Y.) had taken it too far.
Politico first reported Pelosi’s warning, with the speaker telling members in the session, “And you can feel free to leak this.”
Pelosi’s comments come as her divide with Nadler on impeachment has been increasingly on public display. While Pelosi has been publicly assuring that Democrats would move with caution, Nadler had the committee vote to define the parameters of the investigation, which is now being billed with the “I-word.”
The first official “impeachment” hearing came Tuesday, with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski called to testify. The hearing featured yelling, name-calling, stonewalling and a number of roll call votes, as Republicans tried to shut it down.
