House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has more "breathing room" on deciding whether to seek impeachment charges against President Donald Trump following the end of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, Politico reports.

Mueller delivered the results of his investigation into Russian election interference in the 2016 election to Attorney General William Barr last week. Barr later released a summary of his findings, and wrote Mueller did not find evidence of collusion.

Pelosi has repeatedly warned impeaching Trump would not be a quick or simple process, and called for Democrats to wait until the special counsel completed his report before deciding whether or not to seek Trump's impeachment.

"I think her instincts were correct, that we're putting way too much into the Mueller report, and what if it disappoints?" Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., told Politico. "What did we really think Mueller was going to do?"

He added the report "exposes some of those early calls [for impeachment] for being premature and not based on the evidence at hand. And I think it sets that back. It doesn't let [Trump] off the hook, but you cried wolf way too early."

Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas, added "not only was Nancy wise, but because of her experience she was able to lead us and guide us in the right direction on this. It also takes a certain level of strength and character to be able to deal with this in today's [environment]."
