Nancy Pelosi says she'll only move to impeach Trump if the Republicans want to

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday night that the Democrats will only try to impeach President Trump if the Republicans want to as well. Pelosi — whose party is expected to win back the House on Tuesday night — said on PBS NewsHour that a move to impeach the president would "depend on what happens in the [Robert] Mueller investigation" and that if such an event were to occur, it would not be "unifying."

If Democrats were to attempt to impeach Trump, though, it would "have to be bipartisan," Pelosi went on. "And the evidence would have to be so conclusive." Watch her comments below. Jeva Lange
