House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) put speculation about impeachment to rest on Thursday when she said Democrats were not going to pursue it.
Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that, “I don’t think he’s worth the trouble at this point, we have 40 days until the election. It’s no use orchestrating one thing or another when what really matters in terms of the peaceful transfer of power is that people vote.”

Impeachment was one option being weighed against President Trump to try and stop him from filling the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court. But with 40 days to the election, it isn’t worth it by any metric.
The last time Democrats tried to impeach President Trump the process took months to even get started. Democrats are simply going to have to hope for some delay to stop the filling of Ginsburg’s seat.
