Rep. Nancy Pelosi ripped into Donald Trump doubling down on accusing him of a cover-up, but this time she added the word, criminal.
Every Thursday, Pelosi has a press conference with the media where she takes questions and disparages Republicans in public, but on Thursday she went beyond the pale. Pelosi took questions on the president making a statement that he was open to taking dirt from foreign nationals to use against his political opponents.
Democrats have gone after the president Thursday morning and will probably try to use this for impeachment purposes. Here is Pelosi speaking to the media:
Pelosi: “Everybody in the country should be totally appalled by what the president said last night. But he has a habit of making appalling statements. This one borders on so totally unethical that he doesn’t even realize it.”
“he does not know the difference between right and wrong, and that’s probably the nicest thing I can say about him. What is it about the Republicans in Congress, how much more can they bear of the president’s unethical behavior that they think that they are honoring their oath of office?”
Pelosi was asked whether it was “a good idea” to accuse Trump of a criminal cover-up right before her aborted infrastructure meeting with him a few weeks ago, and she answered, “I say almost every day that the president is involved in a criminal cover-up, he just chose to pick it up that day.”
