Appeasement is the diplomatic policy of making political or material concessions to an aggressive power in order to avoid conflict. But is Pelosi appeasing Trump? Or is she, by not moving to impeach him, more of a collaborator?

In ten years Trump’s camps will most likely still be here; and they’ll in all likelihood be far more extensive and far, far worse. And people will ask: why didn’t anyone try to stop this? Why didn’t the Democrats impeach him when they had the chance? And the answer will be: because Pelosi thought it would be unpopular.
