On Wednesday, before her meeting with President Trump at the White House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi met the media and accused the Commander-in-chief of engaging in a “cover-up.”
“We do believe that it is important to follow the facts, we believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States, and we believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up, in a cover-up,” she told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Members of Pelosi’s party keeps ringing the bell to start impeachment proceedings, no doubt backed by the media who want to ride this into the 2020 elections for ratings. Pelosi has continued to douse the impeachment flames, but sometimes I think she’s adding lighter fluid.
The White House, just like former administrations, chooses when they want to play ball with the opposition power in power and when they won’t, and that seems to be the big problem in this situation. The House Democrats want information they are not privy to, and they are trying to destroy heaven and earth to get it done.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, House Judiciary Committee chairman also noted that the House should vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress in June after lawmakers return from Memorial Day holiday recess.
Barr initially refused to testify before Nadler’s committee after the Congressmen tried to bring in lawyers to ask the questions instead of the lawyers that serve on the committee.
