Steyer: Pelosi Doesn’t Need GOP ‘Permission’ to Impeach

Appearing on MSNBC’s Hardball Monday, progressive billionaire Tom Steyer said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s remarks ruling out impeachment of President Trump suggest she requires Republican approval.

Host Chris Matthews asked, “I was shocked by Pelosi’s statement because it seemed to me it was ‘Well, we’re not going to do it right away, we don’t have enough stuff right now…’ Your thoughts?”

I think what she’s saying is, regardless of the information, regardless of how unfit he is, we’re waiting for Republican permission to go forward and hold him accountable for his crimes, and I think if we, in fact, let the American people see through hearings exactly how lawless he is, they’ll insist he be removed from office immediately,” said Steyer.
