Nancy Pelosi Won't Rule out the Indictment of President Trump

And soon-to-be-Speaker Pelosi has already declared that they will never include border wall funding.

Even if Democrats believe some of Trump's actions clear the threshold of "high crimes and misdemeanors", Pelosi has downplayed the prospects of impeachment.

US Democrats, who regain control of the House of Representatives on Thursday (Jan 3), have pledged to challenge Donald Trump on multiple fronts: from Congressional inquiries on Russian election meddling to battles over immigration and health care, as murmurs about impeachment proceedings persist.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi from California is expected to be voted House speaker, returning her to the post she held from 2007 to 2011.

"We asked the president to support the bills that we support that will open up government", Schumer told reporters after a meeting at the White House on Wednesday, CBS News reported. "We shouldn't be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn't avoid impeachment for a political reason", Pelosi said. I'm effective politically, as a fundraiser - the best. That is set to be followed by the introduction, later this week, of a broad campaign and government bill - one titled "H.R. 1" to emphasize its importance to House Democrats, though the GOP-controlled Senate remains a probable obstacle.

In addition, Democrats are eliminating a rarely used rule that allowed any lawmaker to file a motion to force a vote on ousting the speaker.

"It's exactly the kind of proposal you'd expect if the incoming House Democrats are choosing to stage a political sideshow rather than doing the hard work of helping govern the country".

Among the first tasks of the 116th Congress will be ending a almost two-week government shutdown that has left one quarter of federal agencies shuttered due to lapsed funding.

"Both parties must work together to pass a Funding Bill that protects this Nation and its people-this is the first and most important duty of government", Trump wrote on Twitter. "Let's get it done!"

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi is willing to give "nothing for the wall", she said in an interview clip that was tweeted on Wednesday - the 12th day of the government shutdown and the eve of the Democratic-majority 116th Congress' swearing in.
