In the lead-up to the inauguration of Joe Biden, some have raised the possibility of impeaching Donald Trump for his role in inciting the Capitol Riots on January 6th. But newly-elected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has expressed skepticism that impeachment would go forward. The former Speaker has sparked debate with her statements that a second impeachment would be “divisive and harmful” and that it would divide the country even more. Pelosi also claimed the move would be seen as “apolitical”, drawing criticism from those who have argued that responsibility for Trump’s actions needs to be brought to light. This has prompted the question: does New House Speaker Nancy Pelosi really think that a push to impeach Biden is apolitical? The answer is not so simple. Pelosi has maintained that she doesn’t necessarily think the push to impeach is apolitical, only that it would be perceived as such. She has pointed out that any compromising of Trump’s responsibilities after the Capitol Riots could be seen as politically motivated, and that a lengthy impeachment process would lead to deeper divides within the nation. At the same time, Pelosi has made clear that while she is not in favor of a second impeachment of Trump, she does think that Congress should investigate the events leading up to the Riot and ensure that those responsible are held accountable. The bottom line is that Nancy Pelosi does not think that a push for impeachment is apolitical. She doesn’t necessarily feel that Trump should be impeached, but she does recognize that the events of January 6th have to be fully investigated and that those responsible must be brought to justice. Her main concern is that such an effort could be seen as politically motivated by some and further increase the country’s divisions.
