Pelosi Says Trump is Goading Democrats to Impeach Him

Tuesday at an event in New York City hosted by Cornell University’s Institute of Politics & Global Affairs, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared that President Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him.

“Trump is goading us to impeach him,” Pelosi said. “That’s what he’s doing. Every single day, he’s just like taunting, taunting, taunting because he knows that it would be very divisive in the country, but he doesn’t really care. He just wants to solidify his base.”

Pelosi has encountered resistance in her party by trying to steer Democrats away from impeachment, though she refuses to reject the possibility entirely.
