Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said impeachment of President Trump is still an option, but it will depend on the outcome of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Mr. Schumer’s comments came a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemed to tamp down on the push for impeachment, saying the president was “not worth it.”
