Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ruled out a congressional censure of President Trump, a move some lawmakers have suggested as an less divisive alternative to launching impeachment proceedings, the Washington Post reports.
Said Pelosi: “No. I think censure is just a way out. If you’re gonna go, you gotta to go. In other words, if the goods are there, you must impeach, and censure is nice, but it is not commensurate with the violations of the Constitution should we decide that’s the way to go.”
She added that a censure of Trump would be “a day at the beach for the president, or at his golf club, or wherever he goes.”
Politico: Pelosi to view less redacted Mueller report this week.
