Talk about a major buzzkill for pro-impeachment Dems, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi just told CNN’s Manu Raju that her caucus is “not even close” on

Tensions between Pelosi and Trump have escalated in the past week after Pelosi reportedly told Democratic leaders in private that she wants to see the President "in prison." When asked about whether she made the remarks, Pelosi said she would keep what she told fellow Democrats behind closed doors private.

"Did you actually say that, did you actually say that the President, you'd rather see him in prison,?" Raju asked.

Pelosi responded, "When we have conversations in our caucus they stay in our caucus. Do people think there's some impeachable offenses that the President committed? Yes. How serious are they? Are they criminal? Many people think they are."

Pelosi 's opposition to seeking Trump 's removal was stated in a new, wide-ranging interview with the California Democrat published by The Washington Post Pelosi , D-Calif., in a new interview said that Trump is "just not worth" the divisiveness that the country would suffer from seeking to impeach him.

Full text from House speaker Nancy Pelosi 's press conference announcing the formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump on September 24th, 2019. … Let me just tell you this, I had a conversation with the President this morning. He said, 'you know, I don’t have anything to do with that.'

"The first rule of our (congressional delegation) is we never criticize a president of the United States when we are overseas. We have plenty of time to do that when we're back home," she said.

During the same interview, Pelosi said that an impeachment inquiry is "not off the table," but also downplayed the possibility that House Democrats will go down the path of impeachment.

When asked if she would support an inquiry if a majority of her caucus wants to go forward with it, the speaker dismissed the question, saying that "it's not even close in our caucus" and later saying, "why are we even speculating on hypotheticals?"

Right now, there are around 60 House Democrats who support an inquiry, a number that has risen in recent weeks but is still a fraction of the overall total of House Democrats.

Pelosi has so far resisted starting an impeachment inquiry, even as a growing number of House Democrats have said publicly they are in favor of starting one.

Trump takes flack on Twitter for ill-fitting tails

Trump takes flack on Twitter for ill-fitting tails President Trump was mocked on Twitter for his apparently ill-fitting formal wear during a state banquet hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.Trump attended the lavish feast with first lady Melania Trump, who was wearing a Dior Haute Couture gown, but Twitter users quickly jumped on the president over his tuxedo tails. 

“ I ’ m done with him , in terms of talking about him,” Pelosi told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on his ABC show. “What we want to talk about is, let’s build the infrastructure of America and not have him stomp out of the room.” Pelosi and the president have been engaged in an ongoing feud that reached

Nancy Pelosi , the highest-ranking Democrat in Congress, just had a temper tantrum in public. The House Speaker has been under pressure for weeks, and she took it out on President Donald Trump . “ I ’ m done with him !” declared Pelosi referring to the president.

The House speaker has consistently downplayed the possibility of impeachment and has outlined a high bar for the criteria she would want to see met before moving forward, including that she would want to see bipartisan support. And so far, only one Republican lawmaker in Congress has indicated they would support an impeachment inquiry: Justin Amash of Michigan.

When pressed on whether she believes the President has committed crimes in office, Pelosi said special counsel Robert Mueller's report demonstrates evidence of obstruction of justice, but then declined to talk about it further.

"I think the Mueller report very clearly spells out at least 10 or 11 instances of obstruction of justice, but I'm not here to have that discussion," she said at the event. "That's for the committees."

Raju also asked Pelosi if she does believe the President may have committed crimes, doesn't she have an obligation to pursue an impeachment inquiry?

"My obligation is to do whatever we do in the most effective way possible," she responded.

This story has been updated with additional developments Tuesday.
