House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that while President Trump’s first two weeks in office have been “deeply troubling,” that there are no grounds for impeachment (via The Hill.)
Pelosi made her remarks in response to a statement made by California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters that implied Trump had committed criminal action.

“[There] are grounds for displeasure and unease in the public about the performance of this president, who has acted in a way that is strategically incoherent, that is incompetent and that is reckless,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “And that is not grounds for impeachment.
“When and if he breaks the law, that is when something like that would come up. But that’s not the subject of today.”
Waters appeared alongside the Minority Leader to clarify her earlier comments.
“I have not called for the impeachment — yet. He’s doing it himself,” Waters said.
Others have expressed opinions calling for Trump’s impeachment as well (such as this The Hill opinion piece) but it’s clear there is no legal basis for any impeachment charges.
