WASHINGTON: Whatever happened to trying to impeach President Donald Trump?It's the balance that Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is trying to strike in the new Congress between those on her party's left flank who are eager to confront the president, and her instinct to prioritize the kitchen-table promises that Democrats made to voters who elected them to office."We know the Democrats have a plan: They want to disrupt, they want to try to impeach," said GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California after winning the GOP's internal election to serve as minority leader in the new Congress. He warned that Democrats were laying the groundwork to impeach Trump.Instead, the incoming Democratic leaders of House committees will conduct oversight of the president's business and White House dealings.Pelosi has some experience with impeachment, serving as a newer lawmaker when Republicans led impeachment proceedings against Clinton.Pelosi believes that if Democrats had tried to impeach Bush when she was speaker, voters may never have elected Barack Obama as president in 2008 .Voters responded to Clinton's impeachment by electing more Democrats to the House.
