House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Trump is unfit to be president but also says she's not for impeachment.
Pelosi, in an interview with the Washington Post, said that Trump is "just not worth" the divisiveness that the country would suffer from seeking to impeach him.
"I'm not for impeachment," Pelosi told The Post.
"This is news. I'm going to give you some news right now because I haven't said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I've been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that 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."
"And he's just not worth it," Pelosi said.
When a Post reporter asked her if Trump was "fit to be president," Pelosi said, "Are we talking ethically? Intellectually? Politically? What are we talking here?"
"All — All of the above. No. No. I don't think he is. I mean, ethically unfit. Intellectually unfit. Curiosity-wise unfit," Pelosi said. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States."
A few Democratic members of Congress have already introduced articles of impeachment. Last week, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, said she would file such a resolution this month.
Rep. Brad Sherman, who has also drafted articles of impeachment against the President, responded to Pelosi's comment that Trump "isn't worth it."
"You don't impeach Trump for him, you impeach Trump for the Constitution," Sherman, a California Democrat, told reporters.
