“I believe that whatever we do, we have a responsibility, first and foremost, to unify the nation,” Pelosi told CNN. “Second of all, you can't go down any path without the facts, and the law. If that's there, perhaps it will come out in these investigations.”
Some House Democrats have introduced articles of impeachment against Trump, but it’s unlikely their efforts will be successful.
Democratic megadonor Tom Steyer also launched a multi-million dollar campaign pushing for the president’s impeachment.
But Pelosi said Democrats should allow the investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and ties between Trump campaign associates to continue, and focus instead on the 2018 midterm elections.
“The fact is that we've got to really be saying what this election means to people in their lives. Somebody has some facts that come forth about President Trump, let the chips fall where they may. But it's not some place I think we should go,” she said.
