Hours after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi reaffirmed her stance on not impeaching President Donald Trump freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to say she respected the Speaker's position, but didn't think removing Trump from office would ever be completely "off the table".

"This is news. I haven't said this to any press person before", Pelosi continued. But the real nugget is her conclusion that it would take "something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan" to make it a good idea.

President Richard Nixon resigned amid the Watergate scandal in 1974 after the House Judiciary Committee approved articles of impeachment but before the full House had a chance to vote. "It was unnecessary and the rest", she said.
