Trying to kill off a Republican talking point -- and dashing the hopes of a lot of progressives in the process -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is reportedly proclaiming that the Democrats won't try to impeach the president if they gain control of Congress in November.

Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly tells the Washington Post that his boss told members of the House Democratic Caucus this week that impeachment is "off the table," and that she's "not interested in pursuing it."
