Speaking at an event today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked about Robert Mueller’s statement earlier in the day.

Pelosi, as she’s indicated previously, doesn’t seem quite as eager to dive headfirst into the shallow pool of impeachment:
Pelosi downplays how many House Democrats are pushing for impeachment — says it's only 35 or 38, out of the whole caucus.

“Many constituents want to impeach the president but we have to do what is right and what gets results” @SpeakerPelosi now

By “results,” could Pelosi mean not helping guarantee Trump a 2nd term by pursuing impeachment?
Pelosi on calls for impeachment inquiry: "Many constituents want to impeach the President, but we want to do what is right and we want to get results."

Pelosi: "The case has to be very compelling."

Does Pelosi think impeachment would backfire on Dems next year? She doesn’t seem to want to go there:
“Where this will lead us, we shall see- nothing is off the table.” @SpeakerPelosi responds to Special Counsel’s remarks, calls Mueller’s investigation “valuable” and slams Justice Dept. for its response that POTUS is “above the law.” Dances around word impeachment. @nbcbayarea pic.twitter.com/CXTWPOtfsz

Pelosi’s comments are definitely NOT going to sit well with the anti-Trump Resistance:

Muller – We have a video of Trump kicking a baby while colluding with Russia.
Pelosi – I'm disappointed, but it's almost the weekend so we can't start impeachment proceedings now.

Pelosi and Schumer are acting like if they use the word “impeachment” they will melt. https://t.co/cPZL2AuYY2

What infuriates me about this is that those "200 out of 238" who haven't stated that impeachment should occur now are likely deferring to Pelosi.
