Former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile says Democrats can continue their efforts to keep the trump in charge of the management and pass important legislation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday warned the Democrats in Congress who support impeachment proceedings against President Trump not to “denigrate” gentlemen, the no, said a source familiar with the call Fox News.

The star of leadership came during a morning meeting on Capitol Hill, on the heels of Robert Mueller to keep track of the statement, the left-wing pro-impeachment Democrats, with little new material to your case. The source told Fox News that Pelosi said the legislator, are you still allowed to talk about the indictment, if it districts politically important, for your home, but urged them not to defame, members that are not in the same warehouse.


“They said, ‘Do what you have to do for their districts, but not those who said to him,”” the source of scorn, Recalling Pelosi’s remarks. “You said not to do it, something about your patriotism, or lack thereof, if you are not for it.”

The source added that Pelosi, also warned them, not to “make a case” that the members in support of the impeachment procedure, “according to the Constitution” because it “implies that those of us who do not support, it is not according to the Constitution.”

Pelosi, especially in the last few weeks, has tried to tamp fights down the power in the group between the extreme left and moderate elements of the party. As part of these efforts, is set to work with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, on Friday — the freshman legislator’s chief of staff is under the Hill-figures, the centrist since antagonizing of Democrats.

But the indictment issue threatens to further split the group, according to Miller’s testimony left the future of the slide so as unclear as ever. Pelosi, for her part, resisted impeachment pressure from the beginning.

Müller and his team, the findings at the hearing before the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees—to confirm that the special counsel ‘ s had found the office, no evidence of a criminal conspiracy between trump employee and Russia, while also stating that the President was not free from liability to allegations of obstruction of justice, despite his claims to the contrary.

But that Müller refused, repeatedly, to drift over the borders of his report. He also refused to go down the road of the impeachment issue, after questioning from both Republicans and Democrats.

Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, the Committee on legal Affairs, directly Müller asked whether he is suggesting that the Congress charges the trump card.

“You declared [in may] … that the Constitution requires, to accuse a process other than the criminal justice system officially, a sitting President of misconduct,” Escobar said, quoted by Müller’s remarks during his press conference in may. “This process other than the criminal justice system under a sitting President of misconduct is that the prosecution?”


“I’m not going to comment on that,” Miller said as the two of them to the Problem, relying on a footnote in the report.

“What are the other constitutional procedures?”, she said.

Müller replied: “I think I heard you mention at least one.”

“Charge, right?” you urged.


“I’m not going to comment on that,” he said

In may, Müller’s testimony of many on the left, as a green light for the intensification of the talks on the impeachment process, and to ramp up the existing trump-focused studies.

But on Wednesday, even as a Republican, Rep. Mike Johnson of the Louisiana tries to get a response from Miller on the charges, the former special counsel would not bite.

Johnson said that the Democrats “desperate to you today, you tell them to charges of the President.”

“The report does not recommend prosecution, isn’t it?” he asked.

Muller claims that he “talk about recommendations,” and when again asked, he said clearly that he was talking “about this topic.”

Rank-and-file Democrats calling for impeachment for months, as several house committees Trump-focused lead to the investigation of his alleged obstruction of justice, his financial history, and relationships to third persons.

“I think there is a broad consensus in our group,” Rep. David Cicilline, R. I., said on Wednesday, suggesting that Pelosi will get on Board, despite the cool idea and help turn a current impeachment resolution to the floor. “I think that, ultimately, the majority of our group wants to move forward with an impeachment inquiry.”

The source told Fox News on Thursday that Pelosi “may be softening” of the idea.

But on Wednesday, Pelosi signaled the almost nine hours of Mueller’s testimony hardly rose to your attention.

When asked if she had seen and heard, Pelosi, D-Calif., said on Wednesday, “Just a little bit,” adding that she saw only a few moments, ” because we have been so busy.”
