House Nancy Pelosi is joined by fellow Democrats to introduce an immigration reform bill at the Capitol in Washington

Wealthy progressive activist Tom Steyer is not satisfied with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's declaration that Donald Trump is "not worth" impeachment.

Our Verdict: Steyer won't let politics stand in the way of impeachment.

Another major issue splitting Democrats is whether to try to impeach President Trump. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States".

I'm not for impeachment. She was effectively conceding in advance that the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, widely expected to be submitted soon, will not find evidence to back the claims of "collusion" between Trump and the Russian government.

It's an interesting political strategy for a sitting president to openly discuss possible impeachment proceedings and underlines the theory that President Trump intends to run for reelection in 2020 against impeachment.

The president tweeted in response to Pelosi's comments in an interview with the Washington Post Magazine disclosed on Monday. "And I believe that when people get a chance through hearings like the hearing with Mr. Cohen in front of the House Oversight Committee, Americans will be glued to their TV sets that they will in fact see with their own eyes directly how lawless this president is, and they will insist that he be removed from office". Also worth noting that twice Trump asserts that he "never did anything wrong", though in both first-person and third-person points of view, perhaps to cover all bases. "I didn't believe in it then; I don't believe in it now", Pelosi said.

Many Democrats have been planning to move impeachment proceedings, but seniors in the party have been more circumspect about it.

As for the two-year campaign by the Democrats denouncing Trump as a Russian agent and declaring his 2016 election victory to be the result of "meddling" by Vladimir Putin, Pelosi was silent. "We are not governing with a focus on impeachment".

Despite the scathing remarks, Donald Trump thanked Nancy Pelosi for not wanting the impeachment. "Nancy says in her statement in The Washington Post, we know he's unfit for office". "We need to concentrate on what we're fighting for".

Some House Democrats voiced their opposition to Pelosi's dismissal of impeachment, including Rashida Tlaib of MI, who said she plans to file an impeachment resolution, and Al Green of Texas, who introduced an impeachment resolution previous year that was shelved by the Republican majority, and attracted barely 60 votes from Democrats.

Among the policies pushed by the left-wing of the Democratic Party is the "Green New Deal", put forward by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen.

"We don't have the facts yet, but we're going to initiate proper investigations", he said.
