House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seemed unfazed by critics of her impeachment stance Tuesday, saying “you’re wasting your time, unless the evidence is so conclusive that the Republicans will understand.”

“Otherwise, it’s a gift to the President,” Pelosi added to USA Today. “We take our eye off the ball.”

She may be working off experience, having watched the impeachment proceedings of former President Bill Clinton, which resulted in Republicans losing House seats next election cycle and Clinton growing in popularity.
