Sarah Sanders: Pelosi Is 'Starting to Lose Control of Her Party'
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders reacted Tuesday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's statement that attempting to impeach President Trump is "not worth it."
"I’m not for impeachment," Pelosi told The Washington Post in an interview published Monday. "Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it."
The speaker's remarks ran counter to sentiments expressed by some freshman members of her caucus, most notably Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, who vowed to Democratic activists that she would help "impeach the motherf---er" hours after she was sworn in this past January.
Despite her opposition to impeachment, Pelosi said Trump was "unfit" to be president "ethically," "[i]ntellectually," and "curiosity-wise." However, she added that her own relationship with Trump has been "respectful of the office that he holds."
"[I] just tell him what I think," Pelosi said, adding that she was "[h]opeful that at some point we can find common ground that he’ll stick to. So, yeah, respectful, honest and hopeful."
"Nancy Pelosi is already starting to lose control of her party," Sanders said on "Outnumbered Overtime."
"I'm glad she see what the rest of us see, [that there's] no reason [for impeachment]."
Sanders said other Democrats must "get on board" with Pelosi's sentiment, and instead concentrate more on working for the American people.
