"I greatly appreciate Nancy Pelosi’s statement against impeachment, but everyone must remember the minor fact that I never did anything wrong, the Economy and Unemployment are the best ever, Military and Vets are great — and many other successes!" Trump tweeted.

"How do you impeach a man who is considered by many to be the President with the most successful first two years in history, especially when he has done nothing wrong and impeachment is for 'high crimes and misdemeanors'?" he added.

Pelosi, who has tried for months to tamp down talk of impeachment, gave her strongest indication to date that she is unlikely to support such proceedings in an interview with The Washington Post published Monday.

"Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it," Pelosi told the Post.

Pelosi said that, despite her opposition to impeachment at the moment, she does not believe Trump is fit to serve as president.

The issue of impeachment has divided Democrats since before they retook control of the House in January. Most party leaders have said they'd like to see the results of the special counsel's investigation and congressional probes before moving forward with impeachment.

A number of party members, however, have openly clamored for impeachment, suggesting there is already sufficient evidence to support such proceedings. Democrats have previously introduced articles of impeachment, and Rep. Rashida TlaibRashida Harbi TlaibDemocrats brush off calls for Biden to play hardball on Cabinet picks GOP congresswoman-elect wants to form Republican 'Squad' called 'The Force' OVERNIGHT ENERGY: Biden eyes new leadership at troubled public lands agency | House progressives tout their growing numbers in the chamber at climate rally | Trump administration pushes for rollback of Arctic offshore drilling regulations MORE (D-Mich.) said she plans to introduce another measure by the end of the month aimed at ousting Trump.

Some Democrats also noted that Pelosi was not completely ruling out the possibility of such proceedings with her latest comments.
