Chuck Schumer doesn‘t back off impeachment: ‘I‘m going to wait for the Mueller report‘

By – The Washington Times – Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Senate Minority Leader said impeachment of President Trump is still an option, but it will depend on the outcome of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

’s comments came a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemed to tamp down on the push for impeachment, saying the president was “not worth it.”

The New York senator took pains to keep the prospect of impeachment alive.

“I’m going to wait for the Mueller report,” said.

He said it’s possible impeachment would be too divisive, as Mrs. Pelosi suggested — but he said it’s also possible the Mueller report brings Americans together in favor of impeachment.

“Let’s wait for the report,” said.
