WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she doesn't like the profane language used by one of her new members who predicted the House will impeach President Donald Trump. But Pelosi says it's no worse than what Trump himself has said.

Pelosi said Friday at an MSNBC town hall that she doesn't agree that the House should move to impeach Trump without more facts. She said, as she has many times before, that impeachment is "divisive" and she wants the new Democratic majority to be unified.

Newly elected Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib exclaimed at an event Thursday that Democrats were going to impeach Trump and used a profane expression to describe him. Pelosi said that she has a "generational" reaction to that language and wouldn't use it, but that she won't censor her colleagues. Pelosi is 78, while Tlaib is 42.
