House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi predicted President Trump will "self-impeach" himself from the Oval Office, according to a report of comments she made during a closed-door meeting with rank-and-file Democrats on Tuesday.
"It's a big deal to talk about impeachment ... I think he's going to self-impeach," Pelosi said, according to Politico.
Multiple Democrats have called for Trump's legal removal from office, including Texas Rep. Al Green in mid-May.
On Monday, Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., released a draft article of impeachment, evoking the ire of his liberal colleagues because he did not first consult with other members of his party about the proposal.
Top Democrats in Congress have said they are trying to calm members and wait until the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe before taking matters into their own hands.
Pelosi warned if Trump chose to fire Mueller it would give more Republicans reason to wonder about why he is stalling the investigation.
