Speaker Pelosi said on Wednesday morning that if Democrats have the goods, they must impeach Donald Trump.
Pelosi is following the evidence to impeachment
The Speaker said at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast:
At Christian Science Monitor breakfast this morning, Pelosi ruled out censuring Trump, calling it "a way out." "If you're going to go, you've got to go," she said. "If the goods are there, you must impeach." But made clear again that she doesn't think it's time to go that route

Speaker Pelosi won’t rush to impeachment. She is leading an effort to gather evidence and build a case against Donald Trump. Reports that the impeachment push among Democrats has stalled don’t factor in that impeachment is the endgame. The disagreement among Democrats isn’t a question of if the should be impeached, but when the president should be impeached. All of the evidence that the House is gathering is having an impact on Trump.
Polls show that a majority believe that he colluded with Russia and also believed that he should be impeached. The American people are divided on removing him from office.
House Democrats are getting the goods, and once the evidence has been collected, it will be time to move forward with an impeachment process against Donald Trump.
