House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called an emergency meeting with Democrats Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. to discuss their demands for impeachment proceedings against President Trump, per Fox News.
"The pressure is actually real," as Dana Perino noted.
Pelosi just had a closed door meeting with members of Congress in which she reiterated that now is not the time to consider impeachment - it's time for them to turn to other issues. You know, issues that got them voted in in the first place.
Still, she faced push back from her own leadership team and from some of the more progressive lawmakers.
"I trust the speaker is taking a measured approach to ensure that we're moving everyone forward," Ocasio-Cortez said of Pelosi's approach to impeachment proceedings https://t.co/NLUVqNa76z pic.twitter.com/eoiUwBN9ni— POLITICO (@politico) May 21, 2019

Cohen then said while Clinton faced impeachment “over sex,” Trump was currently “raping the country.”https://t.co/XqdWZ4gQcl
At tomorrow's meeting, will she stand her ground or succumb to peer pressure?
This divisive debate appears to have been renewed after Rep. Justin Amash (MI) became the first Republican lawmaker to call for Trump's impeachment over the weekend.
