Pelosi is so 'done' with Trump, the 'diverter in chief'

Pelosi is so 'done' with Trump, the 'diverter in chief'

Pelosi downplayed the fact that she reportedly said Trump should be in prison - potentially the catalyst for the president's attack - while he was on his official state visit to the UK.

Pelosi called it a "very sad thing" on Thursday, saying all Americans should be "totally appalled" by Trump's comment and repeating her belief that Trump was involved in a "criminal cover-up". I'm done with him.

Pelosi noted that she had declined to criticize Trump during a television interview in France because she does not criticize the president when overseas.

"If we didn't have a Constitution and these Democrats who run these committees were in charge, it'd be like the French committees during the French Revolution, where they'd be declaring people guilty with a guillotine next to them and lopping their heads off. Are they criminal? Many people think they are". "I don't even want to talk about him".

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) holds her weekly news conference with Capitol Hill reporters in Washington, U.S., May 23, 2019.

The House speaker has consistently downplayed the possibility of impeachment and has outlined a high bar for the criteria she would want to see met before moving forward, including that she would want to see bipartisan support.

When pressed on whether she believes the President has committed crimes in office, Pelosi said special counsel Robert Mueller's report demonstrates evidence of obstruction of justice, but then declined to talk about it further. What is it about the Republicans in Congress?

"I'll simply say all options are on the table, that's all I'm going to say publicly", Nadler told reports on Tuesday when asked about possibly supporting impeachment proceedings.

"My obligation is to do whatever we do in the most effective way possible", she responded.
