House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has ruled out impeaching US President Donald Trump, saying "he's just not worth it".

The 17-term California Democrat recalled the divisiveness of President Bill Clinton's impeachment, which she said was "horrible for the country", and said she would not be willing to go through that again without "overwhelming and bipartisan" justification.

Representative Steve Chabot, one of 13 House Republicans who prosecuted Clinton's impeachment charges before the Senate, said in an interview, "The closer one gets to an election, I think the bar goes up as to what one considers to be impeachable".

In a Washington Post article, published Monday, Pelosi said impeaching Trump would "just not" be "worth it" as it would be too "divisive". The Republican Party has largely shrugged off Trump being implicated in a bona-fide crime - Michael Cohen's campaign finance violations.

Sherman said that the multiple Democratic investigations of Trump might be a substitute for impeachment, "it's also possible it will be a prelude".

"By calling for impeachment, by talking about impeachment, we were able to limit what this president would do", added Rep. Brad Sherman.

"I think they will expose a lot of the illegal, corrupt and crimes that this president - that I believe that (have) existed and there will be sufficient proof to show that", he said.

He said: "I made a promise in the election to call a referendum and I called the referendum". She said: "It surprised me again as it did last time how major the loss was".

During a segment on Your World WIth Neil Cavuto, the host asked Green to explain why he's still pushing for impeachment when Pelosi has said it would be "a waste of time".

"He's just not worth it", Pelosi said in the interview.

Sherman, despite personally believing Trump should be impeached, actually agrees more with Pelosi than Green about voting on the matter. In effect, she thinks the activists don't need to do this, but they'd rather do it much faster.

By laying down a marker against impeachment, Pelosi leaves herself the option of joining or boosting the effort at some point down the line, while avoiding having to walk back a statement should Mueller come up short. "This is news. I'm going to give you some news right now because I haven't said this to a press person before". Factories and farms across the midwest are shuttering, and while unemployment numbers get touted by his mouthpieces on cable news, digging deeper into stats tells a sadder story across the heartland.

Other lawmakers who have called for impeachment looked at Pelosi's comments more practically. And it's a departure from her previous comments that Democrats are waiting on special counsel Robert Mueller to lay out findings from his Russian Federation investigation before considering impeachment.

"If the [reports] indicate that that's become necessary, then we must fulfil our oath and proceed with impeachment", said Rep Ilhan Omar, a freshman progressive firebrand. By declaring Trump essentially unimpeachable, the House speaker gives future presidents the impunity to act as these choose, virtually without outcome. And while it's highly unlikely the GOP-run Senate would vote to convict Trump, that is also not a reason to hold back, Green says. Mr. Cavuto, we live to exercise liberty and justice for all.

Green, of Houston, told Neil Cavuto that he is unconcerned as to whether the impeachment vote breaks the several-hundred-member threshold needed to start formal proceedings. She knows that impeachment will boomerang on the party and is doing everything in her power to reign in the young Turks.
