Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the US House, has long recognised that if the American public is not in favour of impeachment, there will be no pressure on Senate Republicans to vote for the removal of Donald Trump.

The US president will be acquitted in the Senate and he and his followers will feel vindicated. As a result, Mr Trump and the Republicans might get the lift they need for re-election.
