The spectre of a US civil war has dimmed as Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi retreated on far-left calls to impeach President Donald Trump.
While it might seem hyperbolic to even consider the world’s last remaining super power turning on itself, Trump would certainly defend his office with all the power at his disposal. And many of Trump’s most ardent supporters would defend their president against any alt-left attempts to unseat him.
It wouldn’t take much for chaos to ensue.
So Pelosi appears to understand she’s out of her depth here.

Pelosi says impeachment ‘is not worth it’
In an interview with The Washington Post, as reported by AP, Pelosi patently announced, ‘I’m not for impeachment’ when responding to a question regarding the ‘increasing calls’ from her party for the move.
She added that pursuing impeachment is ‘just not worth it’.
‘Unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country,’ she said.
Previously, Pelosi has said her party were waiting on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings from the Russia investigation to determine whether impeachment is the right path.
But this is the first time Pelosi has clearly laid out her strong stance against impeachment, thinking all efforts from the Democrats will be fruitless.
Pelosi gives credit to Trump
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says she ‘agree[s]’ with Pelosi’s opinion, adding ‘I don’t think it should have ever been on the table’.
The Washington Post interview also asked what good Pelosi believes Trump has given to America.
Her response was that ‘he’s been a great organizer for Democrats, a great fundraiser for Democrats and a great mobilizer at the grass-roots level for Democrats. And I think that’s good for America.’
Whether or not that remark is laid with sarcasm or irony, the fact is Pelosi is aware of Trump’s world-leading power.
