Washington – Pelosi Says Trump Is Engaged In A ‘Cover Up’

    Democratic Speaker of the House from California Nancy Pelosi speaks to the news media at the Capitol in Washington, DC, USA, 09 May 2019. EPAWashington – As Democrats in the U.S. Congress debated possibly impeaching Republican President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday that he is engaged in a “cover-up.”

    Speaking to reporters after a meeting of House Democrats on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said: “No one is above the law, including the president of the United States. And we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

    Democrats who control the House of Representatives and Trump are engaged in a high-stakes power struggle over their ability to investigate him, with the president stonewalling multiple investigations of him by congressional committees.

    The probes range from whether Trump obstructed justice during Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s inquiry into Russian election meddling to his personal finances and businesses.

    Pelosi and other senior House leaders have been trying hard for months to contain demands from more junior Democratic lawmakers to kick off impeachment proceedings.

    Those demands mounted on Wednesday after former White House Counsel Don McGahn ignored a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday to appear before it and testify.

    “For many of us, we think at least an impeachment inquiry would give us more ability to get witnesses to come to Congress. We’re just trying to figure out how to get the truth,” Democratic Representative Mark Pocan told MSNBC.

    Pelosi made her remarks about an hour before she and other congressional leaders were scheduled to meet with Trump at the White House to discuss infrastructure development.

      • The trouble is that Trump is successfully relying on the collective ignorance of his “core” supporters. Anyone…absolutely anyone…who reads the Mueller Report, especially Volume 2, would see immediately that Trump is full of it…engaged in obstruction and is now engaged in a cover up.

        They would understand too that Mueller’s refusal to make a charging decision was solely the result of a long-standing DOJ policy immunizing a sitting president from criminal prosecution, and related ethics concerns that actually are protective of the President.

        But, alas, much if not most of the loyal Trumpzis never take the time to educate themselves with facts…they just repeat the holy mantras of their Lord Trump, and hurl epithets at anyone who believes otherwise.

        • All Mueller had to do is say a few words. he could of wrote, “I suggest that congress impeach trump for obstruction”. Thats not a crimional investigation at all, its rather a suggestion that congress pursue it. That was his job you knoe. He was suppose to suggest to congress if they should or should not impeach. And by the way had mueller said the magic “impeach” word he would have gotten republcians support since he is highly respected. (certainly with pressure). So this would have been in line with DOJ policy.

          For starters you are full of it you know.

        • Engaged in acts what appear to be obstruction is not obstruction unless its obstruction in an illegal sense.

          Furthermore, we don’t care if there is no underlying crime. And Mueller may have sensed that too. Henceforth no “impeach” in his reports. I mean make anyone misreable enough and squeeze them sure they will get frustrated and try to stop you. When that’s a whitch hunt you can’t call it obstruction. And don’t sell me your legal jargon. i do not care about the law. I care about whats right. And too bad but its over.

          Anyone sane would try to stop congress from investigating them.

          Whhat “facts” do we need to know mr genuis lawyer? why don’t you enlighten us with one fact? And again did Mueller say “impeach trump? yes or no will suffice.

          • If you read the report you would know what facts need to be explored…Ignorance must be so comforting to you. I may or may not be a “genius lawyer;” but you truly are a proud ignoramus.

    1. As the pressure builds he gets crazier every day. He’s literally non-sensical saying he’s ‘the most transparent president in history’. Is that a joke? Not allowing his lapdogs to testify? No tax reports? Sooo many lies? No cover-up? Come on Drump. Next he’ll start a WAR to coverup. He’s cracking up.

      • Umm yes he is the most transparent. what you see exactly what you get. No skeletons in the closet.

        And yes transparent also means in policy. He does what he said he’d do. No surprises. he is not always successful but he tries whether its china, muslim ban, decimation of ISIS, tax cuts etc…

    2. The word “coverup” is a favorite in the Democratic lexicon because it hearkens back to Watergate. That the Dems have covered up a lot of their own stuff doesn’t bother them. They’re all crooks, on both sides of the aisle.
